The article examines possible ways of developing inclusive tourism as a social service for people with disabilities. The state of the provision of rehabilitation services for people with disabilities to improve the level of full-quality life has been determined, and the feasibility of providing rehabilitation services through inclusive tourism among social field professionals.
