I am extremely delighted to have taken the much awaited break I needed after a very busy post-Rio medal buzz. I wanted to spend time with myself. Exploring the interiors of Goa the touristic way had been on my wish list for a very long time. But doing this on a wheelchair was always a challenge. Thanks to Enable Travel, I finally got the chance to live an experience I've always wanted to. I had the most comfortable and the most accessible holiday. The itinerary and Enable's trained staff in wheelchair handling made it flawless. I look forward to exploring more of India and the world with Enable Travel. Thank you!
We are close to end of our 15 days Western Europe tour. The arrangements made by Enable Travel have been excellent. The tour managers Mr. Cyrus Bathena and Mr. Pragyesh Singh have been doing their best to make our trip comfortable. Mr. Cyrus has been assisting us in hotel check-ins, breakfast, lunch, dinner and also escorting us to all the points of interests. He is doing his best and remains available round the clock for us.
Most of the hotels were disabled friendly and we were given larger rooms with disabled friendly features. The food has not been an issue since we have been getting good Indian dishes all throughout. We also got to taste a bit of the local food in Italy and have got lot of assistance in our shopping.
With all the logistics and comforts taken care off, we have been able to enjoy the dozens of places we have visited already. Looks like it will become one of our most memorable tours.
After the trip ends, we will be happy to share our experiences in detail.
I especially enjoyed the camping food the most! I think having all of our classmates there made the whole trip a special experience because I did not have to worry about communication barriers. Enable Travel was very generous in making sure we all got a chance to experience camping! I had a blast!
The highlight of our camping experience in Rishikesh was when the white water rafting leaders realized we are able to orchestrate communication skills with perfect accessibility by using only hand signals. We did not need interpreters to guide us. With the support from Enable Travel, we were able to connect the best of both worlds in building an accessible and collaborative relationship where everyone wins and have fun without any language barriers at all!
It was my first camping experience, and it was a success! My team and I had planned the camp, and Enable Travel was a huge help in making this happen! I loved hiking, swimming, water rafting, and sightseeing!
I loved the camp experience! It was my first time camping; I got tired of hotels and hostels. It was wonderful going water rafting, and it taught me valuable communication and teamwork skills! Also, the entire camp was for the Deaf students, which made it much more fun! Thanks, Enable Travel, for your support! I would love to go back again!
When I reached Camp Aquaterra before 0800 hrs on April 28th, the Enable Travel group of 32 deaf students was having breakfast before the drive home.
I met Animesh and Dr. Alim Chandani from Team Enable. They shared the group experience on the river and at camp, and how much they enjoyed being in the valley. As i was listening, i was also getting uncannily aware of the joy permeating through the silence at the dining area. It was of joyful faces, communicating with each other, a language i could understand, of paddling hard in rapids, smiles, camaraderie and bonhomie, the sheer enthusiasm breaking the silence.
Being involved with adventure travel for 25 years, it was a humbling moment, realising the absolute sharing of that joy of the outdoors with the disabled. We as a team, are grateful to Enable Travel for showing us the satisfaction of sharing these moments by taking small steps, to ensure everybody knows what it is to love the planet.
We congratulate you on your great effort and hope to partner you on more such efforts.
I recently flew to Delhi from Mumbai and all the arrangements were made by Enable Travel. I was very happy with the airline and the services they provided to me, all thanks to the Enable Travel team. I would recommend that everyone plan their trip with this company; I ensure you that you won't face any trouble, rather you will enjoy the experience and it will become one of your most memorable holidays.
Keep up the good work Enable Travel!
My husband and I have just returned from a wondrous journey aboard the Deccan Odyssey. And I am not sure who I should address this letter to; the management, the staff, the guests; everyone played a part in making our journey beautiful.
Starting with the sight-seeing tours, everything was managed flawlessly, we faced no issues whatsoever. For this, I would like to thank Deccan Odyssey & the Enable Travel Team for their superb arrangements.
Next up is the staff aboard the train. Their service was exceptional! We felt loved, cherished and protected. They ensured that my husband who is wheelchair bound was taken care of round the clock. I would specially like to thank Mr. Joydip Mitra for going out of his way to help us. Not to forget, the dining staff. They were patient with our special demands and served us gourmet food each day. But the trip would have been incomplete without the company of our fellow passengers. We met some really interesting and fun-loving people.
Lastly, I would like to thank two lovely young ladies, Aditi and Smriti. They accompanied us everywhere and despite resistance from us insisted on helping us put on and take off our shoes at the places of worship. They kept saying that they would have done the same for their grandparents. Since my husband and I are 90 and 85 years respectively, this was a very touching gesture.
Personally I felt my husband was enveloped in a comfortable cocoon, which in turn helped in making my journey comfortable and carefree. We thank everyone at Deccan Odyssey and Enable Travel for fulfilling one of our bucket-list wishes. Here's to many more journeys.
