Since 1972, thousands of men and women with developmental challenges, autism, down syndrome, and other special needs have achieved greater independence through special needs travel experiences provided by The Guided Tour, Inc. The focus of The Guided Tour is to offer special needs vacations that provide a growth-producing experience, in which our travelers are able to travel and socialize independent of their families. Through our special needs trips, many of our travelers can share of their own experiences, many for the first time, with their families, their supervisors, co-workers and friends. The Guided Tour staff make sure our travelers not only have their independence, but they also make sure our travelers have assistance with money, medication, and of course, a fantastic memorable vacation!
