Award-winning holidays for blind and sighted travellers!
Are you ready to change the way you see the world?
Whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple or with friends, we invite you to join our small and sociable groups on an exploration for all of the senses.
But these are no ordinary group holidays. Traveleyes groups are a mixture of both blind and sighted travellers. As a sighted traveller, we simply ask that you share your sight by describing the wonderful world around you. You won’t need any experience of blindness and, as an added benefit, we subsidise the cost of your holiday by up to 50%.
As a blind traveller, you’re able to book a holiday with the same freedom and independence that sighted people have always enjoyed. What’s more, you don’t have to bring anyone with you, as you will be joining a group of like-minded explorers.
Our travellers join our vacations from all over the world and you can too. Follow the links below to find out more about joining us as a blind or sighted traveller.

Join Traveleyes on our first adventure to the Caribbean paradise island of Barbados. The island is famed for its powdery white sand beaches and the clear blue waters of the Caribbean that swarm with tropical fish and majestic giant sea turtles. The people are proud of their nation, and extremely willing to share this pride with hearty, well-spiced food and a relaxed way of life suffused with rich musical tradition. Chow down on the national dish of fried flying fish and wash it down with a local rum, as the setting pink sun casts shadows of palm trees over an endless sea. We shall discover the world-renowned local rum production, a sugar cane farm, pottery workshops, as well as the turbulent past of Bridgetown and the legacy of slavery.View Itinerary
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.

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
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
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
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 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 am officially hooked! You won’t be able to get rid of me now! Honestly, my first Traveleyes trip was a five-star experience.
