As sisters we love to travel together. During one of our summer holidays abroad we had an eye opening experience that change our holiday and mindset forever.
What apparently seemed like a small event, such as one of us twisting an ankle and using temporarily crutches, had a tremendous impact on our holiday experience.
Instead of exploring spontaneously the destination, we faced the reality of planning in advance and carefully choosing the places and the activities that we wanted to do. Although it was an amazing destination and we had a great time it was quite challenging since it was the first time that we ever experienced how it feels to move around in an unfamiliar place with physical limitations.
Coincidentally, although in different ways, our professional background addressed the importance of accessibility as well. Launching our own business was a long lasting desire and combining accessibility and travelling felt like the perfect match. That is how Portugal 4all Senses was born. We are a tour operator specialized in accessible tourism for people with special needs, their friends and family.
We are highly motivated in contributing to make our beautiful country welcome to all. We believe in an inclusive society and we aim to be a key player in promoting a positive change through tourism, that is our passion that keeps us going further.
