Welcome Holy Land Pilgrims! Here at 206 Tours, we are always fully commited to ensure that our pilgrims travel comfortably & in the highest possible manner; and that includes pilgrims with disabilities. For this reason, we created this information page with specific details to our Holy Land Tours:
Israel is a newly developing country and making strides towards accommodating wheelchair passengers. However many of the sites tourists visit are old sites and not built with wheelchair access. Much of the program involves extensive walking around sites that are not wheelchair friendly (such as the Jerusalem Old City). In additions many places may have crowds in relatively small areas (such as the alley ways of the Old City). Therefore wheelchair passengers will find some challenges and should be ready for inconveniences and difficulties.
Wheelchair participants must travel with a companion, a strong and capable person who will assist them throughout the journey.
