• The trip to Croatia was everything I had imagined and hoped for; friendly, welcoming travelling guests and tour guides- both from Traveleyes and the island. I felt exhilarated by the kayaking, hiking and magnificent scenery. I felt extremely grateful for the experience of meeting such beautiful people and learning from them all how to really live life, and experience it to the fullest. I can't wait to book another Traveleyes trip.
    Katie Allen, Sighted Traveller - Croatia, April 2019
  • This was my first holiday with Traveleyes and it was a wonderful experience. The tours and excursions were excellent and as a first-time traveller, I was made to feel very welcome by others in the group that had travelled before. I will definitely be booking another trip soon!
    Ramandeep Kaur, Sighted Traveller - Valencia, April 2019
  • I've travelled all over the world, and in many formats - solo, group tours, cruises, and so on - and I've experienced few holidays that resulted in the formation of good friendships as a Traveleyes holiday. The destinations are unique, the itineraries intriguing, and the company compelling.
    Brian Miller, Blind Traveller - Oman, April 2019
  • The Norwich trip was a great education about the varied history of Norwich and enjoyed by all. A good mix of people. Great trip on the Broads to finish off our Norfolk experience.
    Steve Whyley, Sighted Traveller - Norwich, April 2019
  • I enjoyed my first experience with Traveleyes because of the wonderful people who were visually impaired in our tour group. They were a wonderful group of well-travelled individuals who were interesting and interested in what we were all experiencing on the trip. It was an inspirational time.
    Sharrie-Ann Dial, Sighted Traveller - South Korea, April 2019
  • The tour manager was outstanding. The trip to Swaziland was fantastic. I would highly recommend this trip to an experienced and adventurous traveller. This was a really great group to travel with. My traveling companions were the highlight of this trip; everyone was so kind, friendly, funny and great to travel with and get to know. There were many highlights, including hikes, horseback riding, great food, and being chased by an enraged elephant!
    Aaron Richmond, Blind Traveller - Swaziland, April 2019
  • This was my first trip with Travel Eyes decided a short UK break to check I would be confident to be able to guide. Made a few mistakes forgot to tell my partner coming to steps (we were too busy laughing and chatting) so she tripped but no harm done . My partner laughed it off. Mental note to myself to concentrate better .
    The whole trip was relaxed. The experience was made so much fun with our excellent guide who was there for any eventuality.

    I truly hope all my fellow travellers enjoyed it as much as I did. FABULOUS
    Irena Cieslak, Sighted Traveller - Harrogate, March 2019
  • Great holiday with great company - full of admiration for the VIs on these trips - they cope better than some sighted people including me!
    Everything well organized and catered for.
    Ireen Norris, Sighted Traveller - Harrogate, March 2019
  • This being my first trip with Traveleyes, I was a bit skeptical as to how it would work, but I can assure anyone thinking of giving this type of holiday a go, that it is well worth it and very rewarding to know that you have helped someone less fortunate than you to have a holiday.
    Gwendoline Ann Bradley, Sighted Traveller - Harrogate, March 2019
  • This is a great way of enabling sighted travellers and VIs to team up and, between them, discover the world.
    James Bracewell, Sighted Traveller - Oman, March 2019
  • This was my first Traveleyes holiday. It's a fascinating way to travel and I would definitely book with you again.
    Anne J Brown, Sighted Traveller - Istanbul, March 2019
  • The pleasure of joining sighted and visually impaired travellers, whom I hadn't met previously, is as exciting as the actual trip destination. Traveleyes has a synergy which always attracts the most interesting people to its destinations; people from the most amazing, interesting backgrounds who enjoy sharing the adventure and discovery of new places. The patience and generosity of the guides is truly humbling and by the same token, they seem to enjoy sharing with visually impaired people and learning from our experiences and approaches to life. To me, Traveleyes is the best form of networking ever; far superior to social media because we are interacting face to face. Laughter is the constant accompanying soundscape for our interactions, alongside all exotic sounds found in a place such as Istanbul where the call to prayer is electrifying.
    Carrie Reilly, Blind Traveller - Istanbul, March 2019
  • I have been on four varied holidays so far and have really enjoyed them all.
    They offer amazing value for money and you are looked after so well from the moment you meet at the airport until you return,
    with the fun of being part of a friendly caring group of fellow travellers, who quickly become "family"!
    Marilyn Clark, Blind Traveller - Sri Lanka, February 2019
  • Went to Sri Lanka to see their magical land
    A wonderful holiday I had, really grand,
    The scenery, train ride, the spice gardens too.
    These are some of the fabulous things waiting for you.
    Don’t miss out on this beautiful isle.
    Book on the next trip and all you will do is smile.
    Yvonne Duley, Sighted Traveller - Sri Lanka, February 2019
  • Traveleyes offers me as a visually impaired traveller a unique experience and opportunities to travel feeling safe but sometimes challenged! Meeting local guides and enjoying tastes and sounds as well as touching my surroundings is something I only get when I travel with you.
    Sheila Ramdular, Blind Traveller - Caribbean Cruise, February 2019
  • Our first Traveleyes holiday. It provided an excellent insight into guiding VI's. It was a very sociable holiday and we very much enjoyed meeting and being with new people - both VI and sighted. It opened our eyes to a new world and we gained a lot from it.
    Erik Johannesen, Sighted Traveller - Bristol & Bath, February 2019
  • My first trip with Traveleyes gets more than 5 stars. Went to La Palma, had a wonderful hotel at the seafront, with a pool and a fantastic buffet breakfast and dinner.
    Everything was made really easy for us, well organised and the tour manager did it all with a big smile. So much fun we had, learned and laughed a lot and enjoyed the whole
    experience. We all bonded and I honestly hope to meet some of our group again. I am still on cloud nine and have my name on a waiting list for the next trip.
    Thank you all, it was such an honour for me.
    Waltraud (Heidi) West, Sighted Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • A great way to meet a diverse group of people, make new friends and explore some amazing places.
    Helena Smith, Sighted Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • A relaxing February week in the warmth and relaxed atmosphere of La Palma.
    Looking forward to a similar trip in the winter of 2020.
    Geoff Pickance, Blind Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • Traveleyes is unique in its organisation. Sighted people and those who have visual impairment have the opportunity to holiday together. For the sighted traveller it is interesting to find out more about those with visual impairment and their possible attitude to life. For many V I ‘s it is their only way of visiting so many new places. Changing the person you guide each day means you interact with different people is interesting and also means that you get to know a large number of people.
    Margaret Coles, Sighted Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • The trip to La Palma was most enjoyable, it’s a beautiful island and it was a pleasure to be part of the group as a sighted guide.
    Carolyn Chapman, Sighted Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • If you’re looking for a trip full of laughter and adventure, Traveleyes are definitely the way to go! I had such an amazing time, it’s one of the best holidays I’ve ever been on! Our tour managers were two of the friendliest people I’ve ever met and made the experience of Thailand one I’ll never forget. We managed to get so much done in 2 weeks and everything we did was just incredible! Honestly a trip I’ll never forget!
    Lauren Limmer, Sighted Traveller - Thailand School Trip, February 2019
  • What a great variety of experiences, all on the same holiday! From mountains to beaches. From vineyards to townships. Fantastic food, compelling history and to cap it all off, the chance to get up close and personal with snakes, tarantulas and a cheetah. Yes, you really can do all this even if you can't see. What's not to like?
    Steve Ewens, Blind Traveller - Cape Town, February 2019
  • A rich and aromatic blend of coffee, Vulcanism, chocolate, parrots, and Maya. Thank you Traveleyes for expanding my own personal horizons.
    Luke Riches, Blind Traveller - Guatemala, January 2019
  • The Guatemala holiday was fantastic. This was my first holiday with Traveleyes and it definitely won't be the last. I'm beyond impressed with the VIs and it was a wonderful experience to learn how to be a sighted guide.
    Susan Rockliffe, Sighted Travellers - Guatemala, January 2019
  • The Traveleyes trip to Guatemala was a tremendous experience, a combination of enjoyable company, the reward of travelling with VI's as well as sighted people, and the ability to understand the history of the country as well as the modern day local culture. The activity options worked well with the general sightseeing. Most enjoyable was the local co-operative weaving and tortilla making experience, complete with taking part in the simulated family wedding. The hotel locations at Lake Atitlan and in Antigua were fantastic. A great time had by all, led by our experienced smiling leader and local guide.
    Steve Whyley, Sighted Traveller - Guatemala, January 2019
  • I had a very relaxing and most enjoyable holiday in the Seychelles, returning home ready to face the onset of winter! It was a beautiful destination with lots to experience. It was very reassuring to be able to go on holiday as a blind person and to know that you would have assistance throughout if required. Thank you Traveleyes.
    Jamie Cuthbertson, Blind Traveller - Seychelles, January 2019
  • great holiday in excellent company - recommended wholeheartedly
    Christine Martin, Sighted Traveller - Danube River Cruise , January 2019
  • I am a widow who wanted to travel the world but had no-one in a position to accompany me. I was too scared to go alone and nervy about singles holidays (nudge, nudge, you know what I mean). Then I discovered Traveleyes and it has changed my life for the better. I have been to so many places I would not have dared go to before because I know that Traveleyes will look after me if anything goes amiss. There is absolutely no hassle. You say you want to go and if that trip is not sold out you pay your money and turn up at the airport or wherever you are meeting. Traveleyes do the rest, including giving you all the info about the hotel, the itinerary, local currency and customs, etc. I have made so many good friends on these holidays and some of us have stayed in contact. I always look forward to finding out who is on the holiday, because you often meet up with people you have not seen for ages and that is really nice. Whether you are sighted or not, if you want an interesting and fun holiday with super people I recommend you join us.
    Mrs. Gail Jones, Sighted Traveller - Barbados, December 2018
  • Awesome! Beyond my expectations, I can't think of enough good things to say!
    Mr. Ed Miller, Sighted Traveller - Dusseldorf and Cologne, December 2018
  • My first time as a sighted guide, and certainly not my last.
    My best holiday ever, 17 strangers soon became best friends.
    I've learnt so much on this holiday, both about myself and about VIP's and how working together as a team makes everything easier.
    Christine Vickers, Sighted Traveller - Cinque Terre, November 2018
  • This is the fourth Traveleyes trip I have been on and on each occasion I have made friends and am in constant contact with them. The holidays are varied and exciting and really good if you are travelling alone as it's so easy to make friends quickly and be part of the group.
    Valerie Pelletier, Sighted Traveller - Costa Rica, November 2018
  • A great experience and would recommend to others to do, pick the right holiday for you. You will be amazed how working as a team with other makes you feel better and enjoy the experience with them. I’ll never forget the people and the Costa Rican experience.
    Helen Townsend, Sighted Traveller - Costa Rica, November 2018
  • Costa Rica was an amazing trip of a lifetime with a great group of people, fantastic guides, amazing wildlife and a fab holiday for adrenaline junkies like me!
    Lena Welch, Blind Traveller - Costa Rica, November 2018
  • I've been travelling with TravelEyes for just over 6 years and have visited many countries. This trip has to be in my top 3. A great group of people, a stunning destination and a magical mix of adrenalin-fuelled activities with time to chill in a volcanic spa and to get out amongst the wildlife. The opportunity to participate in a group surfing lesson on the Pacific coast is something which will stay with me for a long time.
    Mark Colman, Blind Traveller - Costa Rica, November 2018
  • This was my first trip with Traveleyes, but I had heard lots about them. I decided to sign up for a trip as I’d heard of lots of other VI people who had done it. I was unsure at first what it would be like, but those doubts were very soon removed from my thoughts as I got to know my group extremely fast and really enjoyed the trip. We saw a lot of Liverpool and learnt a lot about the history and the culture. The VI’s were great, it was nice to meet up with some new people with sight loss. The guides were absolutely brilliant, I felt they were excellent and were extremely helpful and friendly at all times. Without them, the experience would be far less rewarding. Our tour manager was professional and friendly throughout and she got everything organised extremely well. I would highly recommend this experience to any VIP or sighted person considering going with the company as you do get a lot out of the holidays and meet many interesting people. I look forward to my next trip with Traveleyes hopefully very soon.
    Edward Bates, Blind Traveller - Liverpool, November 2018
  • It was my first time using Travel Eyes and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
    Manjit Balli, Blind Traveller - Liverpool, November 2018
  • If you like travelling, meeting new people and feeling useful a Traveleyes holiday is for YOU!
    Ruth Butcher, Sighted Traveller - Liverpool, November 2018
  • Stuck in a rut? Join Traveleyes for a life-enhancing experience. You'll NEVER look back!
    Lesley Tighe, Sighted Traveller - Porto, November 2018
  • See the world - with your eyes, your ears, your fingertips, your taste buds, and most importantly, your heart and an open mind! Traveleyes knows that it doesn't take sight, but vision, and a spirit of adventure to explore the world.
    Dr. Brian Miller, Blind Traveller - Uzbekistan, November 2018
  • Initially, I was a little apprehensive about guiding but what an amazing experience! Some fantastic teamwork from a truly inspirational bunch!
    Debbie Clelland, Sighted Traveller - Kerala, November 2018
  • Traveleyes offers visually impaired people the rare and highly valuable opportunity to explore our wonderous planet without worrying if loved ones or friends are not interested in accompanying us. We have the treat of meeting new people, V.I.'s and Sighted guides on each trip; an opportunity that enriches our holiday and often leading to long-lasting friendships. Travel Eyes is all about Inclusion and the effect this has on the citizens and the countries visited cannot be measured-it affords every day people the opportunity to see that blindness is not the defining trait of the V.I.'s; that we love getting out and exploring new environs, learning about foreign lands and interacting with locals makes for a win/win situation for all who are touched by Traveleyes!
    Carrie Reilly, Blind Traveller - Israel, November 2018
  • Really enjoyed Kenya, my first time in Africa as a VI traveller and I experienced a lot in the 10 days away: feeding the Giraffes was the highlight and we were lucky to see the lions feeding and loads of different birds.
    Ben Wilson, Blind Traveller - Kenya, October 2018
  • A brilliant way to see Kerala, guiding VIs, learning, gaining knowledge about the area, meeting the local people and visiting places that I wouldn't have seen without the local guides. An experience that will be with me always and one I thoroughly enjoyed. Seen some wonderful scenery, met great people and made friends for life.
    Gayle Middlemiss, Sighted Traveller - Kerala, October 2018
  • I had a great group holiday and we all worked together to ensure we had an amazing time.
    Glynis Saunders, Sighted Traveller - Porto, October 2018
  • This company brings a whole new dimension to ‘seeing’ the world as you travel. To say the non-sighted individuals are inspiring is under-selling the impact they will have on you and the travel experience. Everyone should do at least one Traveleyes holiday!
    Kirsty Boazman, Sighted Traveller - India & Bhutan, October 2018
  • Always a very good holiday with Traveleyes great places to visit and experiences.
    Lucy Wilson, Blind Traveller - Uzbekistan, October 2018
  • If you've ever wondered about booking a Traveleyes holiday but have never quite taken the plunge, stop dithering and book yourself onto a trip. Although, of course, a great time isn't guaranteed, there's every chance you'll have a memorable time and make some lovely new friends. Just do it!!!
    Alan Ferguson, Sighted Traveller - Uzbekistan, October 2018
  • Brilliant holiday which I would recommend wholeheartedly to anyone who loves music and dancing. The music of Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans was fantastic. Loved this trip.
    Susan Latham, Sighted Traveller - Southern States, September 2018
  • This was a very interesting way to see a country, it's a slower paced travel and rewarding.
    Gillian Cox, Sighted Traveller - Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan , September 2018
  • If you are looking for a holiday a little different then book a holiday with Traveleyes! I am a sighted person and have just spent one the best holidays I've EVER been on. As a guide to VI's, it makes you take more attention to your surroundings and take a more detailed view of the culture, architecture and scenery around you- as well as the food! It puts you awe of these amazing individuals who take on their disabilities with positivity and a desire to try it all- a humbling and SO worthwhile experience - TRY IT !!
    Joy Dansette, Sighted Traveller - Romania Walking, September 2018
  • After returning from my first Traveleyes holiday as a guide for visually impaired people I would highly recommend it and I can’t wait for the next trip!
    Anne Boss, Sighted Traveller - Cinque Terre, September 2018
  • My first trip with this company - wow what a great time! The holiday was one I had been waiting for for a while and did not disappoint in any way. The tour manager and local guide were well versed in their jobs. We were a group of 11, so had a good chance to mix with each other, and being 4 VI and 7 guides some 'free' time too. We learnt about the countries whilst under Russian rule, and saw what was left behind; and what the two countries have done since. The experiences we had will stay with us for a long time, as we recount them to friends and family. Do go and find out for yourself, you won't be disappointed!
    Josephine Cox, Sighted Traveller - Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, September 2018
  • Travelling with Traveleyes has been a hugely worthwhile and life-affirming experience and given me a new understanding of how blind and visually impaired people cope with life. The enthusiasm of the VIs on my trip to Romania and the way in which they do not allow their disability to prevent them from living life to the full is inspiring, touching and humbling.
    Simon Hedger, Sighted Traveller - Romania Walking, September 2018
  • This was my first Traveleyes holiday and it won’t be my last. Everyone was so friendly and worked so naturally together it was almost like we were a family.
    When you tell folk you are planning a holiday such as this the reaction is often ‘aren’t you good for giving up your time’—well it’s just not like that at all. In fact, it’s an honour and privilege to assist the visually impaired. It gives a whole new dimension to the holiday as you share your vision with others. All the people I guided were so grateful for everything the whole holiday was a. totally rewarding experience. I just can’t wait for the next.
    Peter Guest, Sighted Traveller - Tandem Cruising in Holland, September 2018
  • What a superb holiday experience. Our trip to the Netherlands for a weeks tandem cycling was amazing. We stayed on a barge, setting out cycling each day and catching back up with our barge each night for a fantastic home cooked three-course evening meals. Great cycling, great food and great company. If you like cycling this is just the holiday for you.
    Steve Ewens, Blind Traveller - Tandem Cruising in Holland, September 2018
  • I'm not very good on writing testimonials so all I can say is that if you decide to go on a holiday with Traveleyes whoever you are, sighted or un-sighted, you will have had the best holiday and meet greatest people ever.
    Jean McBride, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria Walking, August 2018
  • As a sighted traveller l feel l get as much from the trips as the VIs in terms of the relationship and education and having a holiday whilst being hopefully helpful at the same time.
    Paul Scoreby, Sighted Traveller - Loire Valley, August 2018
  • I can thoroughly recommend the Traveleyes trip to the Loire Valley. There is something for everyone: beautiful majestic chateaux, fascinating history imparted by knowledgeable local tour guides, chocolate-tasting, wine-tasting at a vineyard and, above all, gastronomic pleasures to be found in the hundreds of eating and drinking establishments.
    Doreen Hutchings, Sighted Traveller - Loire Valley, August 2018
  • Traveleyes is a great way to enjoy holidays with both sighted and visually impaired people. As a sighted first timer, I found the vacation a tremendous experience, allowing me to help people with visual difficulties but also learning from them too, about how they lead their very active and sometimes very independent lives. I also enjoyed the rapport of the whole group and will certainly be travelling with the company again.
    Steve Whyley, Sighted Traveller - Loire Valley, August 2018
  • We ate some good food, tasted some good wine, enjoyed good company and had lots of laughs
    Peter Wyeth, Sighted Traveller - Loire Valley, August 2018
  • "Why did you want to go to Mongolia?" friends said - because Traveleyes suggested it, I replied. And it was one of the great holidays I've done. An adventure into an unknown world with the best company and unexpected experiences. Wonderful - I'd go again.
    Debbie Bowles, Sighted Traveller - Mongolia, August 2018
  • Having booked the second holiday with Traveleyes before taking the first in October 2017, I have just returned from the third in August 18. Venice, too many bridges but peripheral vision honed on the window displays; Tenerife, a return after nearly 40 years and Bulgaria, discovering a love of walking above 2000m. All in the endlessly fascinating company of complete strangers, sharing extraordinary life stories.
    Rosemary Cahill, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria Walking, August 2018
  • I would recommend travelling with Traveleyes to experience the world in a different way.
    Catherine Howard, Sighted Traveller - French Riviera, August 2018
  • My husband and I are both partially sighted and have travelled with Traveleyes for over ten years. We have visited many countries both long and short hall. We have seen many wonderful sights from the temples of Burma to the cheetahs in South Africa. We have also been nearer to home to Spain, France and Morocco. Each holiday has lived up to our expectations and we have had much laughter with the other travellers. You are helped as much or as little as is necessary to make the holiday experience stress free. We are looking forward to our next trip to The Deep South of America.
    Anne Howell, Blind Traveller - French Riviera, August 2018
  • Traveleyes holidays are rewarding for sighted travellers too! Describing things to VIP's makes you are appreciative of things around you. I have a very close friend who is visually impaired, she uses Traveleyes often as it gives her the independence to travel around the world.
    Ian Hamilton, Sighted Traveller - French Riviera, August 2018
  • It was our first time to travel with Traveleyes and as visually impaired travellers we found it an overall great experience. It was great to travel independently and meet new people and experience new things. It was a very enjoyable holiday.
    Andrew Green, Blind Traveller - French Riviera, August 2018
  • I am seeing the world from a multiplicity of viewpoints and boldly going, under the umbrella of Traveleyes, where I would not go. The company is very contagious, the newsletters and notifications are like a virus in my brain. It is a great service and long may it last.
    Arthur Turner, Blind Traveller - Mongolia, August 2018
  • Mongolia is a beautiful country with some of the friendliest people you could ever wish to meet. This is an amazing holiday that provides some unique experiences.
    Christine Willmott, Sighted Traveller - Mongolia, August 2018
  • These holidays are wonderful and I would urge anyone who hasn't tried a Traveleyes trip to try one. They're like no other group holiday, the help offered by the sighted travellers combined with the appreciation of the VI travellers makes for a wonderful holiday experience, full of warmth and camaraderie! I want to say a big thank you to the sighted folk who made my holiday happen for me.
    Colin Palgrave, Blind Traveller - Sorrento, August 2018
  • A thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding holiday with a group of like-minded people. If you want something off the beaten track then go ahead and book!
    Christopher Massey, Sight Traveller - Sorrento, August 2018
  • Standing at the crater of Vesuvius - after my trundle up, in the scorching summer sun. Thanks to Traveleyes for giving me this opportunity, and for future ventures.
    Geoff Pickance, Blind Traveller - Sorrento, August 2018
  • I have to say my Holiday with Traveleyes is the best one I have had in years, great Fun with lots of laughs a real joy to travel with like-minded people who want to just experience everything, the 1st day of guiding is nerve racking but your day buddy soon puts you at ease and once you relax, you forget you are guiding and you just enjoy each others company.
    Gabrielle Sharman, Sighted Traveller - Sorrento, August 2018
  • I always find that I recall more about the things I experience with Traveleyes because I am describing and absorbing the sites (and sights) and not just taking photos.
    Alison Wilson, Sighted Traveller - Krakow, July 2018
  • I am a completely blind traveller who relies on my sighted guides for all my information and descriptions. Krakow is only the third holiday I have done with Traveleyes but they just seem to get it right. I have a fully sighted partner who I holiday with and also with my sighted friends but occasionally I like to get away on my own. This holiday was just brilliant and thank you, Jo, for making it so great you are a real star.
    Kerry Boyd, Blind Traveller - Krakow, July 2018
  • I would thoroughly recommend going on holiday with Traveleyes, to meet a group of like-minded, adventurous individuals, and experience together new countries or cities, whether you are sighted or visually impaired. I will definitely be going again!
    Shirley Payne, Sighted Traveller - Krakow, July 2018
  • As a sighted traveller, it started with me thinking I could help provide a service, escorting, describing, and basically being purposeful. It ended with me gaining much more than I possibly provided. Truly being one of the most unbelievable trips I have ever been on, it wasn't all about the exciting excursions and beautiful places, as spectacular as they were, but more about the beautiful and amazing people that I met along the way. Our friendships were forged immediately as we bonded, laughed, and virtually fell in love with one another. The guiding protocol was not difficult and I found myself doing what comes naturally, walking and talking with new friends. The gratitude we felt was an exchange between us all, and I was honoured to be part of something so wonderful; I have made some life long friends and look forward to future trips with Traveleyes.
    Joanne Haynes, Sighted traveller - The Azores, July 2018
  • I have travelled to Rome and Belfast and found both tours to be great value and very informative. My fellow visually impaired travellers and sighted guides have been friendly and helpful. The different food experiences have been great. I hope to travel on a Traveleyes adventure again.
    Charles Nabarrete, Blind Traveller - Northern Ireland, July 2018
  • Krakow is only the third holiday I have done with Traveleyes but they just seem to get it right. I have a fully sighted partner who I holiday with and also with my sighted friends but occasionally I like to get away on my own. This holiday was just brilliant and thank you Jo for making it so great, you are a real star!
    Kerry Boyd, Blind Traveller - Krakow, July 2018
  • I have now participated in 3 holidays provided by Traveleyes. They have all been positive and exciting experiences, allowing me as a severely sight impaired traveller to visit parts of the world I never thought I would get to.

    The social aspect of being part of a group where you can forge real friendships and often meet up again with people who have been on previous holidays that you’ve been on is a real strength of the Traveleyes experience.
    Michael Scanlan, Blind Traveller - St. Petersburg and Scandinavian Capitals, June 2018
  • Traveleyes have given me an experience I feared I could never have as a blind man. I cannot rate the company and service and concept enough. I fell in love with San Francisco, California and Yosemite national park. I was nervous that the national park would be hard for me to conceptualise because I couldn't see but I was wrong. I still got plenty out of it and found our local guide to slide easily into describing things in a way those of us who couldn't see could understand. I was sad to say goodbye to the group as the entire setup liberated me in a way I always thought lost forever since I lost my vision and we genuinely got along really well. Dan our tour guide was brilliant in every way and allowed me to get the most out of the holiday. I am telling every blind person I know to use you guys. You have no idea what you have done for me.
    Conor Smith, Blind Traveller - San Francisco & Yosemite, June 2018
  • Traveleyes is unique! A group of people who have never met very quickly become friends. We share our interest in the places we visit. I enjoy guiding and trying to describe what I see and I end up seeing more too.
    Carol May, Sighted Traveller - Greece & the Dalmatian Coast Cruise, June 2018
  • I had an amazing holiday! I would highly recommend a school trip to anyone. Both you and the students get so much out of it!
    Kimberley Jones, Blind Traveller - Tuscany 2018 - Tuscany, June 2018
  • If you are looking to travel to exciting destinations, in a well organised friendly group, look no further than Traveleyes.

    For sighted people you will find no better way of spending your holiday, it is so rewarding in many ways, I always feel I get much more out of the trips than I put into it, My face aches so much from the laughs we have, we see splendid places, meet amazing people, and I think all of us go back to our everyday lives refreshed and happy, what more could you ask for?
    Jane Atkin, Sighted Traveller - Camino de Santiago, June 2018
  • I had an unforgettable experience walking the Camino de Santiago. Walking each day through the Spanish countryside with my guide was relaxing and lots of fun. The bird life was exceptional and added a lot to my enjoyment of the walks. I am not religious in any way but, walking into the square in Santiago de Compostela accompanied by the pipes was an experience I will treasure for a long time. With a strong feeling of comradeship with my fellow travellers there was a sense of having completed a journey which left me with a tremendous sense of achievement. The feeling of warmth and companionship from the rest of the group will keep me going for a long time and I feel renewed by the whole experience.
    David Buckley, Blind Traveller - Camino de Santiago, June 2018
  • Outstanding group leader, well organised and wonderful trip. I felt safe, encouraged and was in a fabulous group of what have now become life-long friends.
    Maryse Theberge, Blind Traveller - San Francisco & Yosemite, June 2018
  • This was my first ever cruise and I really enjoyed the experience. I had never been to any of the Scandinavian countries before so this was an excellent way of experiencing them. My only negative was the food which was excellent and too readily available!!! It was also lovely to meet up with old friends on this holiday and also make new ones.
    Eileen Smith, Sighted Traveller - St. Petersburg and Scandinavian Capitals, June 2018
  • When I lost my sight I felt that my world had ended. I never thought I would ever be able to walk outside the house. Now I find myself in the main square of Santiago, standing in front of the cathedral, with tears running down my face, having just completed the final section of the Camino. Thank you for making this possible. It was a challenging week of walking, made all the better for sharing it with some lovely, caring, funny people. Right, now arrange for me to walk part of the Great Wall of China and I'll die happy!
    Steve Ewens, Blind Traveller - Camino de Santiago, June 2018
  • The Azores was my third trip with Traveleyes. Each experience has been unique as each country I have travelled to with Traveleyes

    Going on a Traveleyes trip is a nice change from what I generally do in my every day life. It's another opportunity to interact with new people and explore uncharted territories as well.

    This is a fantastic company which has provided me with great experiences in multiple different countries.
    Stephanie Sherwood, Sighted Traveller - Azores, June 2018
  • Don't think about it, just do it!
    James Mumford, Blind Traveller - Greece & the Dalmatian Coast Cruise, June 2018
  • I am officially hooked! You won’t be able to get rid of me now! Honestly, my first Traveleyes trip was a five-star experience.
    Chinenye Idigo, Blind Traveller - Bilbao, May 2018
  • I met wonderful, generous and grateful people on the two holidays that I've now been on. Would highly recommend this type of holiday if you want a holiday with fun people while also making a bit of an effort for those who cannot see.
    Greg O'Donoghue, Sighted Traveller - Marbella, May 2018
  • This was our first trip with Traveleyes and as soon as we got home we booked our second!
    David Fogg, Blind Traveller - Croatia, March 2018
  • My husband and I was travelled with Traveleyes at least 14 times in the last 11 years. Without the company we would not go to all the exciting places we have been. We have met wonderful guides and interesting fellow travellers. We have booked two more holidays this year. The staff are friendly and helpful and I would recommend the holidays to all visually impaired folks.
    Anne Howell, Blind Traveller - Marrakesh, March 2018
  • Going with Traveleyes as a sighted guide opens my mind to so many possibilities. As a solo traveller myself it is great to be with others, VI or sighted, who are literally in the same boat!

    The daily change of person to guide challenges my powers of description and often pushes me to do things I might otherwise shy away from.
    It is always fun, never boring and you make new friends on every holiday.
    Jon Elsmore, Sighted Traveller - United Arab Emirates, February 2018
  • Only my second, and another great holiday with Traveleyes. These are truly experience holidays - you get to enjoy a range of in-country experiences that you don't get with other tours that help to bring the country to life. The other great element of the experience being the people you meet - guiding and describing to your fellow travellers adds a whole new dimension to the experience - you see more as a sighted guide and sharing that with new friends is what makes the experience unique.
    Debbie Bowles, Sighted Traveller - Mexico, February 2018
  • Highly recommended for meeting new people and travelling to places one has not had the opportunity to visit before. Very good value for money with excellent Traveleyes group leaders and local tour guides.
    It is a ideal opportunity to be able to assist someone else to enjoy their holiday to the full. The Traveleyes pack is perfect to help you with the experience. Really enjoyable holidays.
    Maureen Smith, sighted traveller - Finland, December 2017
  • As someone who has never had sight, I thought it would be vision "overload", but sighted guides described very well and together with 'hands-on' experiences created a vivid and fantastic holiday.
    Maggie Bowes, Blind Traveller - Zambia, Zimbabwe & Botswana, November 2017
  • If you want to book a holiday with a difference, then look no further than Traveleyes!
    I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up for a trip to Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana, but I needn't have worried. It turned out to be one of the best holidays that I have ever taken.
    If you want to experience a new adventure, with like minded people, and feel that you are helping others in the process, then a Traveleyes holiday could be just what you are looking for.
    Melissa Priest, sighted traveller - Zambia, Zimbabwe & Botswana, November 2017
  • If you are reading this, don't hesitate to choose your adventure and have one of the best experiences of your life!
