OUR COMMITMENT TO ACCESSIBILITY

AT WANDER, WE BELIEVE "DIFFERENT IS BEAUTIFUL." THAT'S WHY WE'RE COMMITTED TO ASSISTING OUR GUESTS AS BEST AS WE CAN BOTH ON OUR SITE AND ON OUR TOURS. 

 

WHILE WE'D LIKE TO THINK WE'VE WORKED HARD AT THIS MISSION- SOMETIMES WE FALL SHORT. PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT ELSE WE CAN BE DOING TO MAKE WANDER MORE ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL.

ON TOUR

SINCE DAY ONE, OUR FOUNDER HAS BEEN COMMITTED TO TOUR INTEGRATION AND INCLUSION. WITH AN EXTENSIVE BACKGROUND IN DISABILITY ARTS AND PROGRAMING- OUR LEADERSHIP CREW BRINGS ALMOST 20 YEAR OF EXPERIENCE TO WANDER. 

 

THROUGHOUT OUR TOUR WE'VE DEVELOPED WAYS FOR MORE PEOPLE TO GET TO WANDER AROUND NASHVILLE. FROM ONLY VISITING ACCESSIBLE LOCATIONS TO ENSURING THAT OUR GUIDES ARE TRAINED TO BE RESPECTFUL, HELPFUL, AND ATTENTIVE TO THE NEEDS OF OUR GUESTS- WE'RE READY FOR YOU TO WANDER WITH US!  

MOBILITY

NASHVILLE IS TRULY A CITY BUILT ON A HILL- THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT HAS TO FEEL LIKE IT.

 

WE'VE DESIGNED OUR TOUR TO PROVIDE A FUN, LEISURELY, AND NOT-SO-STRENUOUS PACE, INCLINE, AND TERRAIN SO THAT GUESTS WITH AND WITHOUT MOBILITY LIMITATIONS CAN SIMPLY RELAX AND ENJOY THE TOUR. 

SENSORY FRIENDLY

MUSIC CITY DIDN'T GET ITS FAMOUS NICKNAME BY BEING HUMBLE AND QUIET AND WE KNOW THAT "SCENE" MIGHT NOT WORK FOR EVERYONE.  

OUR GUIDES ARE TRAINED TO PROVIDE SENSORY-FRIENDLY HEADSETS TO GUESTS WHO'D RATHER REFRAIN FROM THE LOUD AND WILD ANTICS OF NASHVILLE. WE'VE ALSO PARTNERED WITH OVER A DOZEN LOCATIONS ALONG THE ROUTE THAT CAN PROVIDE A QUIET MOMENT OF RESPITE, SHOULD YOU NEED IT.

A CITY AS UNIQUE AND DIVERSE AS NASHVILLE ATTRACTS AN EQUALLY UNIQUE AND DIVERSE CROWD.  UNFORTUNATELY, NOT ALL VENUES, RESTAURANTS, ATTRACTIONS, AND TOURS ARE UNIVERSALLY ACCESSIBLE. 

WE'VE CREATED A LIST OF SPOTS THAT DO THEIR BEST TO MAKE THEIR EXPERIENCES AS ACCESSIBLE AS POSSIBLE. FROM BRAILLE MENUS TO AUDIO-DESCRIBED TOURS- WE'LL MAKE SURE YOU GET THE MOST (AND THE BEST) OUT OF NASHVILLE.  CLICK HERE TO RECEIVE A GUIDE.

IN THE MUSIC BIZ THEY SAY IT'S ALL ABOUT "WHO YOU KNOW." WE THINK THAT APPLIES TO OUR ACCESSIBILITY PARTNERS TOO. 

WE'VE PARTNERED WITH SOME OF THE MOST PROFESSIONAL INTERPRETERS AND TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES IN TOWN TO PROVIDE AT-COST SERVICES FOR PRIVATE, GROUP, AND CORPORATE TOURS. 

PLEASE CONTACT US TO DISCUSS OPTIONS FOR SETTING UP A CAPTIONED OR INTERPRETED TOUR. 

Online

A QUALITY, ACCESSIBLE TOUR EXPERIENCE IS ONLY GOOD IF YOU ARE ABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY FIND US, RESEARCH US, AND BOOK US ONLINE. 

LIKE OUR TOURS, WE'VE TRIED TO DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO ENSURE THAT OUR SITE IS AS USER-FRIENDLY AS POSSIBLE. WHILE WE STILL HAVE ROOM TO GROW, BUT HOPEFULLY WITH THE RESOURCES WE'VE IMPLEMENTED ONLINE, EVERYONE IS ABLE TO PURUSE OUR CONTENT AND EXPERIENCE AS MUCH OF WANDER AS POSSIBLE. 

WE ENCOURAGE GUESTS TO LEAVE FEEDBACK IF THERE'S ANYTHING WE CAN DO TO SEE THIS GOAL THROUGH. 

REAL CAPTIONING

THE GOAL WITH OUR ONLINE CONTENT IS TO ALLOW OUR GUESTS TO EXPERIENCE HOW AMAZING OUR TOURS ARE PRIOR TO MAKING THE DECISION TO JOIN US IN-PERSON. 

OUR TEAM PROVIDES HIGH-QUALITY, REAL-TIME CAPTIONING ON ALL OF OUR ONLINE VIDEO CONTENT AND ENSURES THAT IT MEETS THE SAME STRICT STANDARD AS OUR TOURS AND EXPERIENCES.

OUR TEAM HAS WORKED ALONGSIDE PARTNERS SUCH AS AUTISM SPEAKS, UNITED  WAY, L'ARCHE INTERNATIONAL, AND MANY MORE TO BRING HIGH-QUALITY TOURS TO GROUPS WITH VARYING NEEDS. 

OUR ONLINE PRE-TOUR GUIDE ALLOWS CARETAKERS, TEACHERS, AND CHAPERONES TO UNDERSTAND HOW OUR WILL IMPACT/BE IMPACTED BY SPECIFIC LIMITATIONS SO THAT THERE ARE NO SURPRISES. 

ADVOCACY

WANDER NASHVILLE DOESN'T WANT TO BE "A LEADER IN ACCESSIBLE TOURISM." WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT MAKING ACCESSIBLE PRODUCTS SHOULD BE AN EXCLUSIVE, TOP-OF-THE-LINE THING. 

WE PROVIDE TRAINING, RESOURCES, AND GUIDANCE TO OTHER AREA BRANDS AND ATTRACTIONS TO ENSURE THAT NASHVILLE IS ONE OF THE MOST WELCOMING CITIES IN THE COUNTRY. 

WE'VE CREATED A PLEDGE TO HOLD OUR PARTNERS ACCOUNTABLE IN THIS MISSION..
