Our gay vacation group tours are ideal both for single gay men and lesbians to meet new friends, and also for couples to enjoy the camaraderie of exploring new places with other gay and lesbian travelers.

“Our Iceland trip was great. What a unique and fascinating place to visit—from the glaciers and the tectonic plates, to the waterfalls, geysers, and lava tubes. Great guides and a great group of guys.” – Click to see this tour

Octopus’s Garden Scuba Trip
“The location was amazing. It’s hard to choose what I loved most about this destination, the food, the locals, the diving, hotel was amazing and friendly staff. Our hosts were most accommodating and every F&B place that we attended served an amazing dinner, the trip should be called Dine and Dive. If you’re looking for amazing views, diving and want to feel like a local, Saba is your place! I cant wait to return.” — Click to see this tour

Jewels of India
“Seeing the Taj Mahal and the Mt Everest flight were on my ‘bucket’ list. It was my 16th (I think…) trip with HE travel and my 6th with Andrew as guide. Y’all must be doing something right… :=) Now if my bank account could have some time to catch up! The Kathmandu pre-trip was very good and the Everest flight was a dream come true.” – Click to see this tour
