The first graduating class of 26 tour guides was recognized at a recent ceremony at Yad Sarah House, helping to insure inclusion for tourists with special needs.  The course, designed to heighten awareness of travelers with special needs, reviewed the options for accessible tourism with practical information and resources.  The course also shared information on how technological advances can support the tourist with mobility issues.  Israel's Minister of Tourism, Amir Halevi, was on hand to congratulate the graduates.

Yad Sarah's Tourist Services division provides support to travelers with special needs by offering the same services available to residents:  lending of medical and home care equipment, wheelchair-accessible transportation, guidance on accessible tourist sites and accommodations.  Although there is no charge for borrowing equipment, tourists may opt to pay to have the equipment delivered and picked up from their hotel or residence.  To make arrangements for Tourist Services through Yad Sarah, please use this link:  https://www.friendsofyadsarah.org/services-for-tourists
