Our Story



Exceptional Tours was established in 2002 by Telisha Feamster, Owner/Travel Director who has over 25 years of experience in the Human Services. It began as a hobby which combined Telisha's two passions, supporting people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and traveling. Telisha has a B.S. in Special Education and a Master's degree in Healthcare Administration.


Although this venture started as a hobby, today Exceptional Tours LLC has grown into a fulfilling small business focused on helping individuals with disabilities safely see the world.

Our companions are caring and compassionate people who have worked and lived with people with intellectual disabilities and autism. They are Direct Care Professionals, Program Specialists, Nurses, parents and siblings who care about the well-being of the traveler. The dedication and care our companions provide cannot be matched! We are committed to providing unique individualized vacations that will be remembered for a lifetime.
