We offer tours for people who are blind or visually impaired in The Hague: the royal city by the sea. The tours are provided by specialized (English-speaking) tour guides. The tours can be booked by small and large groups. The tours are designed by Accessible Travel Netherlands in cooperation with local guides.
During the tours the senses will be triggered by the senses tasting, feeling, smelling and hearing. The senses tasting and smelling are used for tasting Dutch cheese and the traditionally served fish called Haring. Apart from tasting and smelling, participants can touch and feel many objects during the tour. Objects that can be explored are small minitures of buildings but also actual buildings and structures. The participants can experience the smallest alley of Amsterdam or touch the structures of the smallest house.
Apart from tasting, smelling and feeling, the tour guide will explain about the history, art, infrastructure and inhabitants of the cities. They will explain this to give you a good idea of what the cities look like and who live in them.
Transportation to the starting points of the tours in The Hague can be arranged. The cost for transportation is not included in the price given on the website. If the accommodation of the participants is centrally located, the tour guide can meet the participants at the accommodation.
