Disabled Facilities

APT welcomes passengers with disabilities or special needs provided they are accompanied by a companion capable of providing all necessary assistance. Any disability or medical condition requiring special attention must be reported to APT at the time of booking. It is the customer’s responsibility to advise of your circumstances to ensure the selected tour is suited to your individual needs. APT is not responsible for any loss of enjoyment, loss of touring or loss of monies should the customer be unable to participate in the tour or in any or all of the activities. Any costs incurred as a consequence of the customer’s need to return home as a result of non-disclosure are the customer’s sole responsibility. A Health, Mobility and Fitness Checklist can be requested at the time of booking and will then be sent to you with your invoice.

APT will make reasonable efforts to accommodate the special needs of disabled passengers, but is not responsible for any denial of services by carriers, hotels, trains, restaurants or other independent suppliers, or for any additional associated expenses. Coaches and minibuses are not equipped with wheelchair ramps. Not all river cruise ships and decks have elevators. Cabin doors and restrooms on river cruise ships are not wide enough to allow access by standard wheelchairs. Wheelchairs and walkers cannot be carried on coaches, due to space limitations. For safety reasons, passengers in wheelchairs cannot be carried on ramps in ports where the river cruise ship is at anchor. APT is unable to provide individual assistance to any passenger for walking, dining, boarding or alighting coaches or other transportation vehicles or other personal needs. 

Dress Code

The dress code is generally relaxed but if you wish, you can dress up for the Welcome and Captain’s gala dinners.

Special Dietary Requirements

Where a special dietary request is an important factor in your choice of holiday, you must advise APT when your booking is made. APT will pass your request onto the hotel, airline or other supplier but cannot guarantee that it will be accommodated.

Age Restrictions

Children under twelve years of age are not recommended on tours and cruises. Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult and share their accommodation with an adult.
