Accessible tours

I care for accessibility. Everyone, regardless of functional ability, should be able to explore Stockholm.
My policy for accessibility includes:
- Attendants go for free.
- Guide dogs are welcome.
- I can arrange attendants.
- At the spots, I know where the accessible WC:s are.
- I arrange guided tours with audio descriptions.
- I can arrange guided tours in sign language. This will be to an additional cost.
- I do my best to find alternative ways, if necessary, for wheelchairs.

Below you find programs, specially designed for people visually impaired. These tours are tactile in that sence that we feel and touch facades, doors, statues and so on. I describe what we see and use aids, such as tactile maps and models so that everyone can understand what we see. These tours are also suitable for guests using wheelchair.

Welcome to contact me and explore Stockholm on your own terms!
