How to make walking tours more accessible

For many, the thought here may be that it may not be easy to make walking tours accessible to persons with a disability. However, this is not quite true. It may be easy to say that all that it takes would be a bit of imagination and logic and I am going to give you some tips to get you started.

  1. You would need to provide an escort who is well trained in the rudiments as to how to accommodate the needs of the one that they are guiding or escorting. That is, how to provide sighted guide to someone who is blind or wheelchair assistance to someone requiring a wheelchair.
  2. You will need to be able to provide adequate descriptions to the one who is blind.
  3. Your walking tours should be designed so as not to be too long so as not to tire out your attendees.
  4. Your walking tours should be designed with just enough content to attract and hold the attention of your attendees.
  5. It is always a good idea for you to meet with the potential attendee to discuss their needs before hand. Never meet with them on the same day that you are carrying out your walking tour.
  6. Advertising your services to accommodate those with special needs could be a huge bonus for you.

This should be enough to get you started but of course, there are other tips that you can certainly follow.
