A person with an intellectual disability can manage an ordinary room. Someone in a wheelchair probably cannot. How many people will there be in all and how many accessible bedrooms and bathrooms will you require. This looks like a large number, maybe 36 or more people and that is asking a lot, so any further info would assist.

You can find a lot of places by Googling something like "Accessible group holiday" so that might be a good start, but be careful, some places think that if they have a lift the hotel is accessible, and forget the need for adapted bathrooms or space beside the bed for transfers.

I don't know of any places but I can help you search if I have more info.

"Waiting for your offers"

Hi Izhar;

The need for special services accommodations, buses, flights, etc...Perhaps you misunderstand how the TripAdvisor website operates.

The people on this site are users / members just like you and I. This site does not offer the services similar to that of a travel agency.

Other users / members may post on this thread with some ideas, but before it becomes too late, I would suggest using the services of a travel agent in Israel.

Best Regards
