2017 Accessible Escorted Group Trips – Where do YOU want to go?

Group travel is a fun and different way to experience Europe! After escorting our accessible Paris group trip last month, I am even more committed to offering our clients and their families memorable, fully accessible group travel options in the future..
– but I need your help!

Below you will find some of the options we are considering for 2017. We won’t be offering all of these.  So help us decide! 
(I have numbered them for your reference)
 
As you read through these descriptions, be thinking about these two questions:
