Going on Ventura next April, visiting Madeira, La Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and La Coruna. Are there shuttle buses in all these ports to the centres if we want to do our own thing and do they take folding wheelchairs? I can walk up a few steps to the bus.
At any of these ports can we walk instead of taking the bus?

You can walk or take the local bus in all those ports. Spain is very disabled friendly these days and all public transport buses are accessible.

Recently back from the Canaries and Gran Canaria and La Coruna do not have shuttles but are an easy walk into the centres, Tenerfife and Lanzarote are berth dependent, the others do have shuttles, and if you can walk onto the bus you will not be limited to the accessible buses.

We have just booked to go to the Canaries at the end of January (took advantage of the misfortune of the people who had their 50 days on Oriana cancelled). Last time we went I used a manual wheelchair and hubby pushed. This time I will be taking a powerchair so it will be interesting to see the difference.
