Each time I see a new article or anything that relates to accessible tourism, I stop to realize that it needs to improve in places that are not limited to hotels and restaurants. After reading about the Wheel the World company mentioned in the article about making Machu Picchu and accessible location, I googled the website for the company to see what else they had made accessible.
The website has a lot of very useful information about the trips and they are honest about the level of accessibility. I thought this was important to add because the hotel rooms they would stay in all have a tub shower… I found that to be a little bit strange based on the fact that the company is mainly focused on people who have mobility disabilities. After seeing there were videos about their trips I wanted to watch and see if they would show any of the rooms, but once I had seen about 8 minutes of this video I realized maybe I should stop and think. The fact that people with disabilities now have the opportunity to experience these amazing places is phenomenal. They deserve the same sense of inclusion when traveling and making sure that ANYONE can feel that at your establishment/location should be necessary.
