Good news for handicapped travelers: TourCrafters publishes accessible vacations in France brochure

LIBERTYVILLE, Illinois - TourCrafters, the tour operator with 33 years of experience arranging packages and tours in Europe, has published an Accessible Vacations in France brochure with five varied tours of France that should please disabled Francophiles.
 
Certain to be a popular choice, a land-only, 5-night/6-day tour of Paris includes airport transfers and transportation in either a specially-equipped Black Cab Taxi (with driver/guide) or rental car, accessible accommodations in a 3-star hotel, daily breakfast, two dinners, and sightseeing not only in Paris but in the Palace of Versailles, as well.
 
The lowest (off-season) price starts at $1,345 per person, double occupancy, for a group of four people sharing a taxi or car equipped for one or two wheelchairs. The price per person, double occupancy, for two people sharing starts at $1,715.
 
The City of Light, however, is not the whole story.  TourCrafters’ brochure offers a 5-night/6-day Unforgettable Normandy tour that starts and ends in Paris, and includes Normandy’s beautiful landscape of apple orchards and half-timbered houses, its historic cities and towns—Rouen, Caen, Honfleur and Bayeux—and the unforgettable D-Day Landing Beaches and American Cemetery.  The price starts at $1,175 per person for a group of four people (one or two wheelchairs).
 
A tour of Burgundy includes the 12th-century Cistercian Abbey of Fontenay, the splendid city of Dijon, and the famous vineyards of the Cote d/Or (Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot, Chambolle-Musigny) as well as wine tastings. Wine tastings are also featured on the Loire Valley tour, which takes in photogenic chateaux like Chenonceau, Chambord and Villandry.  The 11-night/12-day Best of France journey, which starts at $3,089 per person for a group of four people (one or two wheelchairs), covers Paris, the Loire, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Carcassonne, Arles, Nice and Monaco.
 
TourCrafters’ carefully-chosen hotels all have accessible rooms and restaurants.  The rental cars—for those who prefer to travel independently—are specially equipped to handle one to three wheelchairs and the Black Cab Taxis are equipped to carry one wheelchair.
 
The brochure is sponsored and certified by Tourism and Handicap, a collaboration between the French Ministry of Tourism, industry professionals and associations for the disabled.
