About The Tour:
The Inka program is a tour that combines a bit of adventure, culture, nature, and leisure.
It is an all-inclusive tour, meaning that all meals, transportation, accommodation, guide, and activities are included.
Hotels throughout the Highlands and Amazon present a good level of accessibility. Some have grab bars and roll in showers, some have a small step (5 inches) to get into showers, but in general they adapt their facilities to host guests using wheelchairs.
Where required, an accessible van and/or a bus is provided. Individual or assisted manual transfer into seats is required.
Bilingual certified guides for all activities are provided throughout the tour.
Re: assistants or help; we do recommend clients use a manual chair since the entire country is not 100% accessible; therefore, one assistant per client to assist with the wheelchair when needed is provided. This will only be for tours and activities, NOT personal activities or duties.
