Detours Gay Adventure Travel
Detours is not your average group tour operator. If the idea of a clipboard-wielding tour guide at the front of a 50-person bus barrelling through 15 countries in 10 days makes you cringe then Detours may be just what you’re looking for. They’ve done away with restricting daily itineraries and daily travel days, and replaced them with what they like to call “structured spontaneity”.
Each Detours trip takes their philosophy of care-free and easy-going travel and adds an emphasis of fun, social, new experiences in incredible places around the world. Each Detours trip leader understands that every traveler has different interests so instead of pre-organizing activities to suit everyone, the leader is responsible for ensuring that each traveler takes part in activities that are going to make that person’s trip unforgettable. Is this new style of trip working? Absolutely. Dozens of uncensored trip reviews have been left from past travelers and every single one raves about the experience.
With 12-15 day Thailand, Costa Rica, and Greece trips in their current offerings Detours reaches many exciting parts of the world, with many more to be announced in the coming years. Many of these trips fill their 15-person group member capacity so booking early is definitely recommended.
And when you book you can feel good about supporting a family-run company who gives back to the community as well. Since their launch in 2012 Detours has donated thousands of dollars to LGBT non-profit organizations as well as donated trips to further the reach of community fundraising campaigns such as the Vancouver-based Out in Schools program through their annual lottery fundraiser.
So why group travel? People decide to travel with a tour operator for many different reasons. Many travel solo and are looking to meet new people. Some are looking to be led out of their comfort zone to really experience something they wouldn’t do on their own. Others are just looking for someone to take care of the annoying details of travel and ensure they have a fantastic experience in a new place.
The guys behind Detours have been leading trips around the world since their early 20’s and have become experts in orchestrating incredible international adventures for all types of travelers.
The majority of travelers on Detours trips are North American single males but they have warmly welcomed many couples, females and travelers from as far away as South Africa, Australia, and Switzerland just to name a few. Any pre-trip fears of “not fitting in” have very quickly been dispelled by a friendly mood of inclusion that’s paramount in their group adventures.
Take some time to compare Detours to other LGBT group tour operators and you’ll quickly find that there’s no better value and no higher-rated tours out there.
To sweeten the pot even more, Detours will take $100 off every trip signup who mentions this site during registration.
