In addition to his wealth of experience as a BBC and Channel 4 presenter, Amar is an award-winning entrepreneur. In 2004, Amar founded Traveleyes, the world’s first commercial tour operator to specialise in holidays for the blind as well as sighted travellers.

Amar also works with schools around the world taking students on a wide range of travel adventures whilst having them describe the sights to other blind travellers.
By broadening the mindset of young people today, Amar hopes to create a more accessible world for those with vision impairment in the future.
