• I often recommend Traveleyes holidays to people who haven't heard about them. I tell them it is 'full on' and quite tiring at times but so interesting to meet people that I wouldn't normally be with and learn their difference perspective on life.
    Valerie Pelletier, sighted traveller - Finland, December 2017
  • My Finland trip was full of new experiences and excitement. Husky Sledge and river floating are my favourite. On the reindeer farm visiting day, I was with Fiona, one of the most wonderful guides, she gave me the chance to touch the reindeer using their food even though it was not easy.
    Nayoung Lee - Finland, December 2017
  • 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
  • Don't be afraid to undertake a trip with Traveleyes, you will have a lot of fun and make new friends. Do take time to read thoroughly all the information sent to you and make sure you take your walking shoes!
    Lynn Martin - Brussels Christmas Markets, December 2017
  • These holidays are such good fun and in good company. They also give the sighted an attitude of gratitude and are real eyeopeners into the "can do " capability of our V. I 's

    I have now been on three, all different and that says it all.
    Margaret Mills, sighted traveller - Kerala, November 2017
  • Everything Traveleyes says about its holidays is true! On the Kerala holiday we really did share with each other, and the VI travellers. A truly amazing holiday. The colours, the noise, the friendliness and experiences, some sublime and some surreal, all with an inspiring local guide and behind the scenes care and expertise of the Traveleyes Representative all created the most memorable and unforgettable holiday.
    Angela Jacob - Kerala, November 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 - 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
  • I'm sure I'm typical of those who, when they think about Colombia, their first thought is the drug scene. This is a very unfortunate and uneducated assumption. People there have done so much to put the infamy of drugs behind them and improve their standard of living. They want tourists to go home with memories of the good things, like the friendly people, the beautiful country and the fantastic coffee! As for the Traveleyes holiday, it was wonderful. The highlight for me was the chance to try scuba diving in the Caribbean Sea. Other experiences included a bath in warm volcanic mud and a visit to a town which produces amazing ceramics. We saw the production and painting processes. This holiday had a good variety of activities. We had a wonderful group in Colombia and our tour manager as always did a great job. Please go there! The people are very keen for you to visit and boost their economy.
    Moira Wilson, sighted traveller - Colombia, November 2017
  • Great holiday, challenging walks but great fun.
    Sandy Goler, Sighted Traveller - Sicily, October 2017
  • Having injured my ankles in a stupid fall the week before my walking holiday in Sicily - it was truly a team effort as a I steered and my new found friends pushed and pulled me up the steep bits. But as always a truly wonderful holiday - and the sadness of it ending tempered only by the email confirming the next one in 2018!
    Deborah Bowles, sighted traveller - Sicily, October 2017
  • This was my first time with Traveleyes and I was somewhat apprehensive and nervous however both the tour guide and the people who'd been on previous Traveleyes holidays quickly helped me to overcome my concerns.
    It was a great experience and I would, and have, recommend Traveleyes

  • Each Traveleyes holiday is different but the common thread is one of great enjoyment and friendship. I have just been to Venice as a sighted guide, go, go, go!! It was like walking through an art gallery and it is such a joy describing it all to your fellow travellers.
    What is often remarkable on these holidays is the unexpected!
    Jean Sharp, sighted traveller - Venice, October 2017
  • Traveleyes has given me travel with a purpose, among a huge range of places and length of time away.
    Rosemary Cahill - Venice, October 2017
  • Each Travel Eyes holiday is different but the common thread is one of great enjoyment and friendship. I have just been to Venice as a sighted guide, go, go, go!! It was like walking through an art gallery and it is such a joy describing it all to your fellow travellers.
    What is often remarkable on these holidays is the unexpected. Four of us went to the Peggy Guggenheim house and art collection. We were overwhelmed that we were showed round by a lady called Valeria Bottalico who by chance had done a workshop that morning, along with a nationally important sculpturer, for visually impaired school children, saying we could have attended that if we'd wished. Valeria took the personal time to guide the hands of the two VIs over some resin casts she'd had made of four of the painting and also over two of the sculptures in the garden. It was a joy and bought tears to my eyes to see Sherry's face light up as her hands were guided over the resin cast.

  • If you are reading this, don't hesitate to choose your adventure and have one of the best experiences of your life!

    Cathy Mcsweeney, sighted traveller - Tandem Cruising in Holland, September 2017
  • This holiday gave me the opportunity to meet visually impaired persons and I learnt so much. I only hope the V. I's got as much pleasure from being in my company as I did from being in their company. Thank you Traveleyes :)
    Pam Jones, sighted traveller - Tandem Cruising in Holland, September 2017
  • A well organised and executed holiday. A good selection of interesting tours suitable for all abilities and giving a good over view of each city.
    Elizabeth Hudson, sighted traveller - Imperial Capitals, September 2017
  • The tandem tour of Holland was excellent. The experience was made very special by the mix of wonderful people, humor and camoradory . Some of the cycling was tough and you needed a level of experience and fitness, but the support of the group helped make it a fun experience. A trip full of interesting places, windmills that crushed mustard, the sweet smell of the fields with the last of the years flowers filling the air with scent. The heat of the kiln in the Delft factory, and the feel of the pottery moulds. The cheese tasting and noise of the machinery to make the clogs. The tour was varied and interesting. The guide and tour manager ensured we were safe and provided support throughout the experience. A week full of cycling, interesting places, friendly travelers , aching limbs, homely food and laughter. What a great experience.

    Sian Healey, blind traveller - Tandem Cruising in Holland, September 2017
  • I did note the number of VIs who had been on several Traveleyes holidays previously, and some already knew each other from previous trips. That perhaps is testimony enough.
    Alex Grant, sighted traveller - Tandem Cruising in Holland, September 2017
  • Travel with Traveleyes - all my breaks have been really good value for money and enjoyable experiences. I love the social aspect of it too - nice meeting up with and talking to new people. The representatives from the company on all my trips have been helpful and knowledgeable and, most importantly, there when needed.
    Carol Frankland, sighted traveller - Leicester, September 2017
  • I recently travelled to Lanzarote with Traveleyes and, after nearly a week back at home I am still feeling the benefits of this relaxing break. There are rare moments of true happiness in anyone's life but on that holiday, when I was able, with the help of my guide, able to swim freely in the sea and walk along a sandy beach which we swam to from a yacht, it doesn't get much better than that for me. I am totally blind and the holidays with Traveleyes are, firstly, about removing some of the restrictions I face in my daily life for a time, and secondly, being able to relax, knowing that I don't have to bother planning journeys, getting menus read and many other minor tasks which can add to the daily stresses of life.

    Here's to the next one.
    David Buckley, blind traveller - Lanzarote, September 2017
  • This was my first time away with travel eyes. We all laughed a lot, and by the end of the week I had discovered that there is no difference to anyone except the way we deal with things but above all I think I learnt a lot about me. it was good fun.
    Jeanette Gilmore, sighted traveller - Lanzarote, September 2017
  • I'd happily go with Traveleyes again and again. Describing the sights to visually-impaired colleagues makes me really look at what I'm seeing, so I get more out of the experience too.
    Peter Fisher, sighted traveller - Burma, September 2017
  • I'm a seasoned traveller and this has been perhaps one of the most rewarding and enlightening trips I have taken. The group was multicultural, diverse and got on remarkably well. The behind the scenes work provided by both Traveleyes and the local tour guides made the trip stress free and enjoyable. The following days agendas were discussed over dinner and drinks. We were advised what was/was not needed for the each day and it made the whole experience worry free and relaxing knowing that everything has already been taken care of. 5 Star Traveleyes!
    Christopher Massey, sighted traveller - Burma, September 2017
  • As I had never done a Traveleyes trip before and was going solely upon the recommendation of a woman in Sydney who went to Swaziland with Traveleyes, I was unsure of what to expect. I am used to planning my own trips entirely and being more of a "rough around the edges" type traveler (chicken bus, camping, hostels, street food, backpack...). I was really impressed with the diversity of activities, various locations we traveled to, education we received on all of the places we visited and the luxury we were afforded in all aspects of the trip. It was an easy trip to be on and one which provided a great overview and experience of the country. I quickly adapted to the comfort and well planned itinerary. It was a really great experience.
    Stephanie Sherwood, sighted traveller - Burma, September 2017
  • My first experience of a Traveleyes holiday was a joy and a privilege. Sharing a wide range of experiences with visually impaired travellers heightened my appreciation of our adventures together. Great fun, great people and I'll be back for more!
    Jean Robinson, sighted traveller - Burma, September 2017
  • Certainly a holiday with a difference and one that I would not have wanted to miss.
    Carol Barrett, sighted traveller - Ischia, September 2017
  • A wonderful way to travel with a small group, you will gain some fantastic memories.
    Sue Francis-Duma, sighted traveller - The Orkneys, September 2017
  • Meet interesting new people and hear their experiences of visual impairment whilst enjoying the cultural and culinary offerings of a wonderful location!
    Hilary Skipworth, sighted traveller - Avignon, August 2017
  • As a first timer on any trip of this type l found it very rewarding and will do it again.
    Paul Scoreby, sighted traveller - Isle of Wight, August 2017
  • Traveleyes provided me with a well organised very enjoyable experience. It was a pleasure to share this with my fellow travellers, both visually impaired and sighted. Thank you.
    Robin Ireland, Sighted Traveller - Iceland, August 2017
  • In Iceland I dared to do a lot more than I expected. This is partly due to the encouragement from some of my sighted partners.
    Ana Murray-Rochard, Blind Traveller - Iceland, August 2017
  • I had a marvellous time on my first TravelEyes holiday. As a Sighted Guide with experience of family and friends with differing sight issues, I was still a bit nervous of what the Iceland trip would throw at me. I needn't have worried as the whole set-up was super. Sharing my vision and descriptive powers was fun and getting to know each VI that I guided, as well as the whole group, was tremendous. I came home tired, but uplifted, after sharing a great holiday with a raft of new friends from many different backgrounds and places. I've already booked my next trip, need I say more?!
    Alison Wilson, Sighted Traveller - Iceland, August 2017
  • Iceland was my second holiday with Traveleyes and it was just as good as the first one. I can't wait for the safari in November.
    Aaron Fowler, Blind Traveller - Iceland, August 2017

  • I love my trips with Traveleyes. It is such a humbling experience to spend time with motivated and interesting people and a privilege to be the eyes for somebody else. I find that I think about what I am seeing so much more when I have to share the experience.
    Helen Fletcher, sighted traveller - Iceland, August 2017
  • Having just returned from my first Traveleyes trip as a sighted guide, it is challenging to put into words the many experiences that I enjoyed on my holiday in Georgia and Armenia. The holiday was packed with surprises and I have many special memories which I am sure will stay with me for a long time. I was a little apprehensive about guiding VIs, but I didn't need to be as my fellow holiday-makers were very patient and easy to be around. Traveleyes certainly lived up to their promise of exciting adventures!
    Susan McGarroch, sighted traveller - Georgia and Armenia, August 2017
  • First time flying at 71 years young, brilliant holiday, feeling safe with people who are experienced and caring.
    Richard Bradford, blind traveller - Georgia and Armenia, August 2017
  • My trip to Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia was the second experience of a holiday travelling on my own with people that I didn't know previously. It has been a very enjoyable experience which has helped my confidence and expanded my knowledge of the world. It has also given me an insight into the technical advancements that benefit and assist visually impaired travellers in their every day lives.
    I am looking forward to my next trip which is in 3 months to Venice and I can highly recommend a Traveleyes holiday to anyone wishing to gain a new experience.
    Maureen Smith, Sighted Traveller - Baltic States, July 2017
  • A fantastic trip with everything you could want from a longer European break: cities, castles, beaches, national parks and an array of sites from churches to museums and riverboat trips. The food was great and you were never very far from a fresh beer. Can't recommend this trip highly enough.
    James Barrett, Blind Traveller - Baltic States, July 2017
  • This holiday is fantastic. I went on it last year and hopefully it will run next year and I will be able to go again. The walking itself was brilliant, also the food and the apartment was excellent. Our hosts are very friendly and couldn't do enough for us.
    Lesley Buckley, Blind Traveller - Bulgaria, July 2017
  • I have just returned from walking in the Bulgarian mountains, my third Traveleyes holiday. The experience was amazing, the walks were challenging and my companions full of humour and quick wit, even in the pouring rain! Traveleyes Holidays are such a unique way to travel. I have met many amazing people, both visually impaired and sighted and have made some life long friends.
    If you like to travel, try something different, take yourself out of your comfort zone, you won't regret it.
    Karen Dalziel, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria, July 2017
  • Walking in the high mountains of Bulgaria was a wonderful experience, with rocks, rivers, lakes, forests and wild flowers all around us. It was a pleasure for me as a sighted person to be able to help visually impaired people enjoy this experience. There was the sound of water flowing and birds calling, the sun and wind to feel (and rain one day!), the ski lifts and the sensation of walking up and down mountain paths to enjoy. I felt we all had a lot of fun, as well as learning a little about Bulgaria, its culture and traditions and delicious food.
    Clare Meiklejohn, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria, July 2017
  • I was impressed with my first Traveleyes holiday. Well-organised and a lovely bunch of people. I'd really like to travel with them again.
    Sarah Tummey, Blind Traveller - The Channel Islands, July 2017
  • Indonesia might not prosper economically, and need better health and education, but it has enormous wealth in the warmth of its people, a geography that's spectacular and a vastly diverse culture.
    The way Traveleyes structures its group tours brings people who may never have taken the opportunity to come together to do so. I would imagine that in my group of a dozen folk each would have come away knowing eleven others well enough to make ongoing contact a probability.
    So if you are one who likes exotic food eaten on a beach at sunset with kites and fireworks overhead; likes meeting monkeys, sea turtles and Komodo dragons face to face; want to hike to emerald and sapphire volcanic lakes; join in with the traditional dances of the villages; barter in the local markets; swim in tropical warm seas at dusk; and relax amongst good company; then pull out your wallet and sign up.
    Rick Hoskin, Blind Traveller - Indonesia, July 2017
  • The Traveleyes holidays for me have opened new doors and have given me the chance to travel the world. This is with sighted guides who describe the surroundings and activities which brings things alive for me.
    Jane Hawthorn, Blind Traveller - Indonesia, July 2017
  • To any visually impaired traveller who has not gone on a Traveleyes holiday before and is thinking about going on a trip..... Don't worry just go ahead and book one. It will be a great experience. This holiday was a lovely break in a friendly hotel in a good location. There was no hassle, no drama, just good company, good food, a good mix of activities and time to relax in the sun. What are you waiting for?

    Steve Ewens, Blind Traveller - Mallorca, June 2017
  • The experience of travel with Traveleyes will remain with you for the rest of your life sighted or unsighted.
    Laurence Jay, Sighted Traveller - Mallorca, June 2017 - Mallorca, June 2017
  • I really enjoyed the Northumberland trip and it was extremely well organised. It was great to meet such a lovely group and everyone really enjoyed everything. Our tour manager was always ready to help and answer questions and made sure we all a really good time.
    Jean Meyer, Blind Traveller - Northumberland, June 2017
  • My apprehensions as a first time sighted guide were soon dissipated. It was interesting, challenging and exciting and I will be back.
    Peter Wyeth, Sighted Traveller - Lisbon, June 2017
  • The holiday to Lisbon has been my first experience with Traveleyes and I really didn't know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised. All of my guides were well trained, helpful, and gave me different perspectives. It definitely made for an incredible experience, an experience of a lifetime really. I highly recommend it to anyone and could just kick myself for not booking for Traveleyes sooner.
    Sandra Sermons, Blind Traveller - Lisbon, June 2017
  • I have recently returned from my fourth Traveleyes Trip and you can be sure I will be back again for another one. My experience of these holidays is that they are very well organised, packed with fun and interesting activities and a great way of meeting interesting and adventurous people.
    Helen Rhodes, Sighted Traveller - Lisbon, June 2017
  • A vibrant holiday with some wonderful people.
    Clare Deal, Sighted Traveller - Madeira, June 2017
  • My first ever holiday with Traveleyes was incredible, I laughed and cried, met some amazing people and learned a lot about Madeira and people with sight loss. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
    Carol Pattison, Sighted Traveller - Madeira, June 2017
  • A week later, I am still thinking about the trip and how much I enjoyed it. One of the VIs thanked me as we were saying our good byes, and said the sighted guides had no idea of the gift they gave, but truly, each one of the guides received so much more than they gave. It was a revelation to me to see that visually impaired people can do everything I can do – as long as they have someone to help them. And that is tremendous.
    Xenia Taliotis, Sighted Traveller - Madeira, June 2017
  • Always a really interesting experience.
    Heather Dawe, Sighted Traveller - Madeira, June 2017
  • Travelling with Traveleyes was an amazing experience, I had a wonderful holiday and made lots of good friends. It also inspired me to become involved with my Regional Association for the Blind when I got home, volunteering as a sighted guide on local walks. Can't wait for my next Traveleyes holiday.
    Ann Luck, Sighted Traveller - Madeira, June 2017
  • My first venture with Traveleyes as a sighted traveller was an eye opening experience for me. I enjoyed walking each day with charming and engaging companions, and dining in local restaurants each evening with entertaining and engaging company. Madeira is truly a delightful island.
    Elizabeth Butterworth, Sighted Traveller - Madeira, June 2017
  • My first trip with Traveleyes has a sighted traveller was very enjoyable. The experience proved to me "let no difficulties you may have stop you from achieving your goals in life".
    Kay Kirkham, Sighted Traveller - Texas, May 2017
  • I enjoyed the trip to Texas it was a fascinating place. My greatest achievement was getting on the horse at the ranch to go horse riding with the cowboys. I enjoyed it so much I did it 3 times. The Space centre in Houston was amazing, particularly if you're into space and what made it all the more special was whilst we were at the ranch we watched the space station pass over us in the evening. I've met some amazing people on this trip and we've had a lot of fun and laughter together
    Helen Whatley, Sighted Traveller - Texas, May 2017
  • A great way to see places you might not get to see on your own and share the group experience. The Dixie Dude ranch was 'awesome' and San Antonio is a striking contrast to noisy Austin with its lovely Riverwalk bars and restaurants. An amazing introduction for me on my first visit to the USA.
    Pat Adams, Sighted Traveller - Texas, May 2017
  • The Traveleyes itinerary triggered an interest in China that I never knew I had. The Traveleyes holiday brought this interest to life. Colourful descriptions of glittering cities. Dressing up in silky traditional costume. Downing shots of snake blood in a rooftop restaurant. Crunching deep fried scorpion and clawed chicken foot. Fighting with chopsticks. Imaginatively shaped rocks, world breaking bronze Buddha’s and playful pandas. From bustling Hong Kong to peaceful Guilin to lively and carefree Yangshuo, China was a true multi sensory destination. An adventure of discovery and defying expectations, whether you are visually impaired or not.
    Rachel Nafzger, Blind Traveller - China, May 2017
  • As with my previous Traveleyes Holiday, this once again surpassed my expectations. Expertly organised, fun, laughter-filled, educational and awe inspiring. Made some new friends whom I am certain I will be life-long friends with.
    Nick Wyer, Sighted Traveller - China, May 2017
  • Great concept
    Ian Powell, Blind Traveller - China, May 2017
  • An amazing chance to see new parts of the world with the support and company of a tour guide and other travellers. As you are partnered with different people each day you soon establish good friendships.
    Each day is packed with adventures and made easy with a great tour guide who looks after all the boring admin bits of the holiday e.g. buying tickets, sorting out check in . A quality holiday with quality people.
    Denise Sparkes, Sighted Traveller - China, May 2017
  • You guys are in for an amazing experience. This is such a cool trip. A well as visiting amazing places, you get to meet some amazing people. The VIP's have such cool stories and you learn so much from them. This trip will give you another outlook on life.
    May Parkes-Young, Sighted Traveller - Romania and Transylvannia, May 2017
  • Romania was a beautiful country and I was very grateful to have the chance to experience it with a wonderful bunch of both sighted and visually impaired travellers - one of the only downsides was the occasionally rainy weather! Our Traveleyes representatives were extremely kind; the schedule was very flexible; we had more than enough to eat at every meal; and the activities were varied and fun; so there was a little something for everyone. Most importantly, I feel as if I have made some lifelong friends on this trip that I will not ever be able to forget!
    Kristi Wong, Sighted Traveller - Romania and Transylvania, May 2017
  • It's my third time to take my students on a Traveleyes trip. Our destination was Romania. There were 20 students, 3 teachers, 9 VIs, 2 sighted travellers and 2 Traveleyes Tour Managers in the trip. All my students have "taken away" a lot throughout these nine-day trip.
    Romania is a beautiful country. We learned a lot about the culture and history. We spent a couple of nights in Bucharest; then we have enjoyed a few days country life in Transylvania.
    However, the most meaningful part of the trip would be the things that my students learnt from the VIS. They found that people should not just take someone at face value. Instead of judging a person based on first impressions or their appearance, people should learn to listen and appreciate what they have in life. Through the guiding "job", the students learnt to describe the surroundings to the VIs; at the same time, they listened to different real life stories. The VIs' positive approach to everything inspired them to be grateful for what they have. They might have lost their eye sight but they didn’t let it get to them. Instead, they try their best to enjoy and live a life.
    It's amazing, I witnessed how the VIs affected the life of my students and my students truly love the VIs.

    Echo Li, Sighted Traveller - Romania and Transylvania, May 2017
  • What a brilliant idea to give visually impaired people such opportunities for travel. We really really enjoyed our holiday which was enhanced by the wonderful and interesting people we shared it with. They were all so positive and gave so much to each other - loved the whole experience.
    Gwen Wiggins, Sighted Traveller - Mykonos and Santorini, May 2017
  • Thanks very much, Traveleyes, for a wonderful experience and I am so pleased to have had a taste of Norway. I would love to go back there again and have longer in Bergen and see what else this lovely country has to offer me
    Wayne Chapman, Blind Traveller - Cruising the Norwegian Fjords, May 2017
  • Really looking forward to the next Traveleyes Holiday, what ever and where ever that may be!
    Jennifer Murray, Blind Traveller - Mexico, April 2017
  • I have just returned from a trip to Thailand (April 2017). It was my first trip with Traveleyes as a sighted traveller and from the experiences I had and the memories that I will always cherish it certainly wont be my last. I laughed until I cried and also shed a few emotional tears when after giving a little assistance fellow travellers that were blind/visually impaired undertook new experiences which were on their 'wish list'. It was a truly rewarding holiday.
    The whole trip was well organised with first class accommodation and excellent excursions which provided a good overview of Thailand. A Traveleyes tour manager who travelled with us ensured it all ran seamlessly.
    If you are looking for a holiday with good company, new experiences and memories that you will cherish book with Traveleyes.
    Lyn Davies, Sighted Traveller - Thailand, April 2017
  • My husband and I are both partially sighted and have travelled with Traveleyes for over ten years going on twelve holidays. Most of them have been long hall, to South and North India, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and America to name but a few. We have been privileged to travel with Amar several times and have also met some lovely people. The sights, smells, atmosphere and food of the many places we have visited will stay in my memory.

    I certainly recommend a holiday with Traveleyes and it may look expensive but it is worth every penny. Most of the sighted guides are wonderful and fill in what you can not see. So if you haven't been yet, what is stopping you....
    Anne Howell, Blind Traveller - Thailand, April 2017
  • I found this a win - win experience! I looked, I described, we experienced and thus the memories are deeper and richer.
    Elisabeth Bush, Sighted Traveller - Swaziland , April 2017
  • Traveleyes offers exciting travel adventures for both sighted and VI travellers within a safe and caring framework. I have thoroughly enjoyed both my Traveleyes trips and plan to be a guide to my fellow travellers on future trips. Itineraries and excursions are diverse, interesting and well designed for both sighted and VI travellers. A great value and a great travel experience. I have met such wonderful companions I will always consider to be friends.
    Francine Eisenman, Sighted Traveller - Swaziland, April 2017
  • This holiday to Swaziland was my first time going on a wildlife safari. It enabled us to get up close to the big 5 animals and many more other animals and birds. Visiting the local people and finding out how they live and their culture was very interesting and enjoyable. I would recommend anyone to not miss the opportunity to go on such a holiday
    Ian Taylor, Blind Traveller - Swaziland, April 2017
  • Swaziland is a wonderful country, and this trip makes the most of experiencing both the cultural and the environmental side of the country. The safari experiences will give you goosebumps and the visits to the local villages will inspire you.
    Fiona Gilmartin, Sighted Traveller - Swaziland, April 2017
  • I would like to thank Traveleyes for an extremely enjoyable holiday to Swaziland. A very different side of Africa, much less developed than other parts and more cultural. Although you will not see the huge herds of African wildlife you will get to know a more cultural holiday. Lovely group of people and some very memorable sights and sounds. VI, don't assume a safari holiday is not for visually impaired people. You can get so much out of Africa so well worth a trip.
    Sharon Hogben, Blind Traveller - Swaziland, April 2017
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, and l now know how Traveleyes adds to the whole quality of life of many who sign up! It was my privilege to participate! - it was a fantastic exhilarating holiday! Describing the scenery and historic sites and artefacts to my perceptive VI companion - who quickly became a friend - was challenging, humbling and invigorating! I shall never again take my sight for granted.

  • Traveleyes holidays never cease to amaze me with the unusual, interesting and different destinations. Once there the tour Managers and local guides work so hard to bring the place to life. Whilst adding to the holiday with generous amounts of good humour and there is always such camaraderie from the fellow travellers.

  • This was an amazing holiday. It was my first holiday with Travel Eyes as a sighted adventurer and has changed the way I see the world in many ways. We shared so many interesting and exciting experiences together I can't wait to start on another adventure.

  • Traveleyes holidays are well planned and full of new experiences for both sighted and visually impaired travellers. Itineraries are varied to suit all tastes and the accommodation is of a very high standard. I met some lovely people and enjoyed it very much. I want to go back next year!

  • A week away on a Traveleyes holiday is like putting yourself into another world, where things look and feel more ...........[insert the adjective].......
    Susan Stewart, Sighted Traveller - Romania and Transylvania, March 2017
  • It was such a great experience. It may sound cheesy, and cliche, but it really is. As well as getting to go to this new place and see a completely different culture, you get to meet new people, try new things and see the world around you in a totally different perspective

  • The Traveleyes school trip was a very different experience from other Traveleyes tours as our guides were students from the International School of London. The students brought their enthusiasm, liveliness and positivity to the trip, not only guiding and describing but also throwing themselves into everything we did. We stayed on a traditional farm with the opportunity to interact with the animals including milking cows, riding horse carts and collecting eggs and also to try our hand at pottery and other local crafts. We enjoyed home made and home grown food every morning and evening and had the place all to ourselves to relax, roam and enjoy. For a Traveleyes tour with a difference the school trips are not to be missed!

  • Nepal is not for the faint hearted as the quality of the drinking water, food, public toilets and the roads pose a number of challenges. However, the Nepali people are some of the kindest I've ever met-- and I've travelled widely. This was particularly true when the hotel staff in Kathmandu provided a lovely birthday cake for my partner. The culture is so different from ours that it gives the traveller food for thought, partly because it makes you reassess what you take for granted in a Western lifestyle, but partly also due to the magic of the varied landscapes, the vibrant colours, the wildlife and, of course, the people. Nepal is the first country I've visited where the souvenirs were unusual, tasteful and calling out to be bought!

  • Once listening to a radio show couple of years ago I was moved to hear Amar's story and all what Traveleyes is about. Since then I was waiting for an opportunity to visit Madrid where my local knowledge might be useful for others. I've enjoyed my time there and especially the conversations which go beyond small talk. Once again I was convinced that on this journey through our life we might experience different hardships, but if we learn how to share it, we can create a mutual benefit. Thank you all! Dali

  • I always enjoy travelling with Traveleyes. As a sighted traveller, guiding VIP's is an enriching experience. There is always a lovely group atmosphere, better than in other organisation I have travelled with. I have met many wonderful people and it is a great pleasure to share this experience with others.
    Dominique Simpson, Sighted Traveller - Harrogate, March 2017
  • Another wonderful trip, whenever I tell people about Traveleyes I always feel confident in telling them about the consistently good quality of the trips and the support from the Traveleyes staff.
    James Barratt, Blind Traveller - Madrid and Toledo, March 2017
  • My first trip with Traveleyes so didn't really know what to expect. However I can honestly say it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had. From the first meeting at the airport I found everyone was chatting away to everyone else as if they already knew one another. This continued right through the holiday. It was a lovely experience and having to help my 'friends' who were visually impaired actually made me far more aware of what was around me. A great experience and can't wait for the next Traveleyes holiday
    Val Pelletier, Sighted Traveller - Madrid and Toledo, March 2017
  • As this was my first Traveleyes holiday, I was a little apprehensive maybe. I was made to feel completely at ease immediately we met at Gatwick. I very shortly became completely immersed in the group and within a couple of days, I knew I would be booking another Traveleyes holiday soon!
    Val Oviatt, Sighted Traveller - Madrid and Toledo, March 2017
  • I enjoyed myself so much I have been busy telling all my friends about it, in the hope that they will sign up as sighted travellers, which will mean that you have even more holidays available.
    Valerie Williams, Sighted Traveller - Madrid and Toledo, March 2017
  • Traveleyes have developed a wonderful model for blind and sighted people to enjoy holidays together. AS a totally blind person I found the sighted travellers both warm and very very helpful, enriching my holiday experience with their guiding, explaining scenery and what we are walking passed as we travel around. Also I had a strong feeling that the sighted travellers also gained a lot from their experience, and at no time was I made to feel they were simply looking after me.
    I would heartily recommend these holidays for both blind and sighted travellers, try one you will be amazed!
    Colin Palgrave, Blind Traveller - Harrogate, March 2017
  • The trip to Malaysia and Borneo proved to be an interesting and exciting trip for both guides and VIs with a good itinerary. The group gelled well together and having a mix of sighted and VIs proved beneficial to all, as both got an added extra from the experiences. The VIs were able to enjoy the many adventures with the help of the guides and the guides as always got more from each situation as they had to 'see' for the VI as well as themselves.
