Paris at Sunset - Makin' Tracks wheelchair accessible tours

Think of Paris, and your mind conjures up so many images.  The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre Dame, the Sacre Coeur, Centre Pompidou, Moulin Rouge and the Champs-Élysées only begin the list.  Even the names of districts, like Montmartre, set off idle daydreams.  Then there are less tangible yet ubiquitous elements that display Parisian style, revealing themselves in décor, cuisine, art, dress, and even the way people hold themselves.
No wonder, then, that Paris continues to be one of the world’s top 10 city destinations for tourists.

Cafe near Hotel - Makin' Tracks wheelchair accessible toursWe have found a hotel on the bank of the attractive Canal de la Villette, within easy reach of the sightseeing highlights.

In the course of the week, we’ll take in all those famous sights, plus the smaller but memorable like the Rodin collection & Orsay museum, and relax in the gardens of Luxembourg & Tuileries.

Of course, with our own accessible vehicle, we are free to explore outside Paris.  As ever, I will assess the overall quality of experience, balancing fame against accessibility and overcrowding, before coming up with a final programme.

Accommodation & Dining
Our Hotel in Paris - Makin' Tracks wheelchair accessible tours

The Holiday Inn Express hotel is modern & practical, well located on the side of the Canal de la Villette just 3 miles from the very heart of Paris.

Each of the wheelchair accessible rooms has one large bed, with an adjoining room for an assistant, making the experience more spacious & private than usual.

Breakfast will be at the hotel, while most of our evening meals will be taken in restaurants around the area, so that we can enjoy a variety of cuisine and ambience.

As usual, we will have our extensive collection of accessibility aids, including hoist, shower chairs, & mobility scooter, at no extra charge.
