Accessibility

My tours are accessible to all: children, adults, seniors and people with handicapes*.

I don’t have seat belts in the back of my cars (vintage cars) so if you need a seat belt attachment or other hardware, it will be difficult. Let me know what you need.

*Please use my contact form to send me your needs and expectations. The wheelchair equipment does not fit in a 2CV, but the alternative is possible – with the Estafette (minivan).
