VICTA is excited to be launching its biggest adventure yet – a cultural discovery tour of Thailand. The trip will take place in February 2018 but due to its nature and larger contribution required, we are launching applications earlier to give participants the opportunity to pay in instalments.

The multi-centre itinerary is being organised by Seable Holidays who specialise in accessible holidays for travellers with a visual impairment. Together we are preparing what looks to be an incredible itinerary which you can help shape.
