Inclusive Tourist Guiding - Handbook by the ELEVATOR project

02/12/2018 | 0 comments

This Handbook provides a handbook with learning material focused on Inclusive Tourist Guiding. Its creation was initiated by tourist guides, who meet tourists with access needs more and more often in their work, as their number is growing mainly due to the ageing population.

Training offers on this topic are weak or completely absent in most countries.

Inclusive (or also accessible) guiding is based on the concept of Accessible Tourism, that endeavours to improve tourist destinations, products and services so that they are accessible to all people regardless of their age, abilities, permanent or temporary limitations and impairments.

End-users: Training providers, curriculum designers, professional tourist guides, policy makers (primarily in education and vocational training).

Form: Electronic document
