Update, November 26
I had told numerous people that there would probably be Yellowstone and Western Canyons tours in 2016, but unfortunately, the number of ADA rooms that we require for our tours aren’t available on the dates we needed for either tour.
However, there have been requests for other tours, also. If lodging is available for us on required dates, I may offer the Mt. Rushmore again for those folks who missed it last year, and it has been a while since some other of our great tours were offered, two of which are:
The Northwest tour, which incudes days in Vancouver and Victoria (with Butchart Gardens), BC, Canada, and The Northern California tour, which includes days in the wine country (not the best tour for teetotalers!), Yosemite and Monterey.
Any tours offered will be in the latter part of summer or early fall. If responses from lodging we require are favorable, the itineraries for 2016 should be posted by December 15.
My own philosophy of touring is that I would rather see a lot of a little than a little of a lot and as always, these tours continue to reflect this perspective. If you do wish to join a tour in 2016, don't procrastinate, but sign up right away. Since there are typically only 8 or 9 people total, if you delay you may call only to find the tour full.
If you decide to take a tour, let me know via an email or phone call. I’ll pencil you in and email you a reservation form, which you’ll print and mail in along with your check. It’s that easy. Then, you’ll shop for the best flights and buy travel insurance, which is now mandatory, and you’ll be set.
I’m frequently asked questions such as ‘How much is a tour?’ or ‘When are deposits due? Before asking questions, please read the itinerary you are interested in carefully and then go to the General Information section, where you’ll find the answers to most of your questions. Then, if you have done that and still have questions, please email or call.
I believe that Access Tours continues to be the only service providing tours in this country for slow walkers and wheelchair users. If you do an Internet search using 'disabled tours', 'handicap tours' or 'wheelchair tours', many things show up, but not actual tours. So I'm always astonished that there aren't more folks clamoring for our Western tours, or even others.
Some of you have been coming back for these tours nearly as long as I have been running them and others not so long, but all of you who have enjoyed them have made it worth while for me. Providing you with the opportunity to get out and enjoy the West, doing things that are unusual and, often, things that you might not have thought you could do, has been a wonderful experience. A number of you have become good friends, and others special acquaintances. Thank you for coming along on the rides!
