TRIP DIFFICULTY LEVEL
Perceptions of trip difficulty vary widely so it is often impossible to characterize this in a single word or phrase. We will try to give indications in the trip write-up, and will point out any major considerations (e.g., We will indicate when a site is not wheelchair accessible). The volunteers in the Travel Office will have more details, so if you have questions, please ask.
In most cases, we hope the general information will be sufficient. For example, a theatre trip usually requires no more than being able to enter and leave the bus. Some theatres, such as the Glendale Center Theatre, have steep aisles which you enter at the top, but there is a wheelchair section or you can always sit in the top row (it's a small theatre). Museum trips typically involve walking with strategically-placed benches to sit when necessary. Outdoor events, such as the French Festival in Santa Barbara, involve more walking than other trips.
If you are planning to go on one of our "Long Beach Gondola" tours, please note that you will have to step from the dock into the gondola. Gondolas range from small (2-6 people) to larger (7-14 people), and of course, people will be there to help you get into and out of the gondola.
We want our travelers to know what to expect on a trip. We welcome any suggestions for effective ways to share information relative to the difficulty of our trips.
