If you have a disability and you would like to travel to a destination such as Peru in South America, then read on Travelperu may just be what you are looking for.
Although I am British by birth I have lived in Peru and South America for more than twenty five years and nearly all this time in the travel industry managing an Incoming Operation, dealing with people from all over the world. I am also an experienced program designer as well as a Tour Leader and have in the case of Peru an intimate knowledge, as I have travelled extensively.
In those years I also have received passengers with disabilities , not huge amounts as few venture to such destinations, as it can be quite daunting.
I would not try to convince anyone that Peru is totally equipped for someone who has a disability, but it will work fine providing everything is organised. The country has a limited number of good hotels which will provide the infrastructure needed and then the rest is down to planning and knowledge of where you are going.
The designing stage will always involve a certain amount of interaction between ourselves to arrive at the best program and if required, myself or someone from Travel Peru would accompany yourself as a companion and also to ensure that everything runs in the best possible way.
I think anyone who decides to take this journey will have an unforgettable experience as Peru offers tremendous diversity. You have many different climates, regional customs and dress, a very interesting local cuisine with international recognition and of course its geography, the coast , the desert, the mountains and the jungle. Its history is rich and although Peru is known for the Incas, there have been many more civilizations that existed before, in areas such as Huaraz, Trujillo, Chiclayo and Chachapoyas.
