JPS Tours provides all-inclusive vacation packages for travellers from the ages of 16 to adult with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
We offer the best ratio of chaperones for travellers--one chaperone for every three or four travellers. Our average group size is 8 and we strive to match the mobility, ages, social skills, and capabilities of trip participants.
Our expertise shows our affinity for, and sensitivity to, those with special needs. JPS Tours has over 18 years experience in special needs travel and has provided peak experiences and treasured memories for more than 300 travellers from Belgium. This innovative organization has earned high praise featured in many major daily newspapers across the country.
Why we're special
There are many reasons why travellers choose for JPS Tours year after year: Our foundation in special education, our caring and knowledgeable team, our length of trips that offer plenty of fun and relaxation, our included airfare package costs are just a few.
We're Rooted in Special Education
We're rooted in special education, rather than in the travel industry. Japie Swings, the founder and executive director of JPS Tours has enjoyed over two decades of working with those with special needs. He has a master's degree in special education and has been the director of residential programs for adults with developmental disabilities in Belgium.
Our background is evident in our affinity for and sensitivity to those with special needs. We are more inclusive than many similar organizations, and tailor trips to accommodate a broader range of developmental/intellectual disabilities.
We've Got Experience
Our founder and executive director, Japie Swings, has a proven track record of over 27 years of leadership and expertise in both areas of special education and travel. During that time, he's organized over 600 trips throughout Europe, Asië, Africa and internationally, providing cherished memories to over 350 travellers from all Belgium. We get rave reviews from our participants, their parents and/or their caregivers.
We've Got the Best Chaperones
All JPS Tours chaperones are respectful, warm-hearted, fun, and inclusive. They have a keen sensitivity to the needs of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and they appreciate how important JPS Tours adventures are to our special travellers. Our chaperones are school teachers, counsellors, residential care providers and other caring individuals. They are carefully screened and reviewed before and after every trip!
