Accessible tours in Barcelona for limited walking visitors
Getting around Barcelona in a wheelchair is better than in many European cities. Barcelona is working to achieve accessibility for disabled people in order to offer autonomy, quality of life and respect for diversity.
Currently, most of the city’s sidewalks have ramps to cross the streets. Although mountains and the Mediterranean Sea surround the city, most of Barcelona is flat, which facilitates mobility for people with walking issues or in a wheelchair.
In addition, all public buses are accessible with wheelchair ramps, and most Metro (underground) stations have escalators and elevators to reach the metro platforms.
More and more taxis, hotels, restaurants, museums and tourist attractions are designed to be accessible to everyone.
Our tours in Barcelona are suitable for people with reduced mobility, in wheelchairs or with mobility difficulties.
You simply have to inform us about it when you fill out the tour request form. If necessary, we will provide an adapted vehicle. We will offer you information on various options, adapted taxi, minivan or bus, depending on the number of participants.
The more information you offer us about mobility difficulties, the better we can design your tour. Remember that our tours are private, only for your group, so we customize them according to your interests and needs.
Tours in Barcelona for deaf and hard-of-hearing travelers
We also offer tours to the deaf and people with hearing impairments. If necessary we can use a portable magnetic loop or other systems that help you hear the guide.
Although we don’t speak sign language, if you can do lip reading, we will gesticulate clearly so you can understand us.
As the sensitive guides we are, we adapt our tours to people with special needs, since we believe that each one of us is unique and has special and personal needs.
