Since 2010, the Tourist Office has been awarded the « Tourism and Disability » label for 4 types of disability: hearing, mental, motor and visual for the reception area. The brand was renewed in December 2018 for both the Périgueux and Sainte-Alvère offices for a period of five years.
The Tourist Office has also been awarded the « Tourism and Disability » brand for guided tours since 2013. The Tourist Office thus offers tours adapted for people with disabilities. These people can therefore book guided tours adapted according to the type of disability (presentation of visuals of monuments that are not accessible for people with a motor disability, the possibility of touching certain architectural elements for people with a visual disability, simplified comments for people with a mental disability, transcription on paper of the guide’s comments for people with a hearing disability, but also amplifying the sound).
