I enjoyed the walking tour of Amsterdam - the guide was excellent. I enjoyed the tour to the villages (Volendam) outside of Amsterdam - an excellent guide there too. However the handicapped accessible part of the trip (which was why I booked it with Sage) had some deficiencies. The location to meet the driver at the airport was wrong. The information on the canal trip was wrong and the map to find it was inadequate. And the reservation at the hotel (the only one that had twin beds) was under the wrong name. Also they failed to tell me that I could get into my room early if I had given the hotel an arrival time.

Tour Sage Traveling Company Reviews

Stride Review

Launched in 1999, they offer exclusively handicap accessible tours around the world, and are there to help with the entire planning process.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Extensive knowledge and expertise with offering handicap accessible tours and advice about traveling when you or your companion is handicapped. You can even rent travel wheelchairs through them, making them a great one stop shop for planning travel. They help take care of every aspect of your travel to ease the stress of planning and logistics.

Who Travels With Them?

Wheelchair travelers and other handicap travelers of all ages are welcome on their tours.   

Where Do They Operate?

They focus in Europe (including some select locations in the Middle East) and offer cruises as well. Each destination has multiple travel articles which detail advice and tips from experts and bloggers for traveling as a handicapped person.

Why Travel With Them?

For wheelchair travelers and those who are otherwise handicapped, they’re dedicated focus on handicap travel inspires a great deal of confidence. Multiple tours are offered in each destination, so it’s a great site to search by your desired destination to find the tour that’s right for you.

From Sage Traveling

Sage Traveling is committed to providing customized, truly accessible holiday travel for our disabled and elderly clients. We deal exclusively in accessible travel to European destinations, and make it our job to understand all the challenges that disabled travelers may encounter during their trip and how to overcome them. Not only do we plan your worry-free accessible vacation, we also offer comprehensive, detailed, and organized disabled travel information on accessible European tourist attractions, ports, hotels, and transportation.

John Sage was injured in a snow-skiing accident in 2001 when he was 22 years old and sustained a T-4 incomplete spinal cord injury. He has some sensation but uses a wheelchair to get around. John quickly adapted to his new lifestyle and retained his passion for life. Since 2001, he has visited Europe 16 times to over 140+ cities in his wheelchair.

In the spring of 2008, after his sixth trip to Europe, he realized there had to be a better way to plan a wheelchair accessible trip to Europe. He had spent dozens of hours researching accessibility trip to Southern France and Italy and was still met by accessibility surprises during the trip. The existing internet accessibility information was sporadic, vague, non-existent, or completely incorrect! Some information would describe a place as “totally inaccessible for wheelchairs” (Venice) yet with the right information they can absolutely be visited by wheelchair users!

 

Upon realizing that there was really no one out there who was providing all of the comprehensive information that someone in a wheelchair or with other mobility issues would need to make a trip to Europe he began creating and setting up his accessible travel company, Sage Traveling. No one had pulled all the necessary accessibility information together and presented it like a guide book with maps and pictures but John was determined to change this.

 

John Sage has spent the past several years learning accessibility phrases in various languages to be able to call hotels and museums to inquire about accessibility. He has taken numerous trips to top European travel destinations to make Sage Traveling a leading expert in disabled European travel.
