Curators of Detailed Experiences

Gay travel (and LGBTQ+ travel in general) has seen remarkable changes and growth in the past decade. As a gay tour pioneer, this change has led to amazing opportunities in the kinds of lesbian and gay vacations that we are able to provide. For instance, LGBTQ+ and gay travel is now embraced in destinations and hotels where it wasn’t just 10 years ago. All gay group tours and vacations can now offer the same (or perhaps even better) quality and breadth of experiences as our straight counterparts.

Zoom Vacations® offers fun, luxurious, affordable LGBTQ+ and allies tours to the hottest destinations in the world. We understand that successful gay tours must entail personalized, sincere attention at every step of the journey, and getting to know our travelers is one of our favorite aspects of what we do. While we use the phrase gay vacations throughout this site, it may be more accurate to say that we provide gay-friendly travel (specifically gay-friendly tours). We encourage the friends and families of our gay travelers to come along, and we are always happy to assist gay-friendly travelers in any way we can.

As global prejudice continues to fall, gay travel, and certainly travel in general, is evolving in exciting, powerful ways. Zoom Vacations® is poised to meet this evolution, providing the most modern, fun, stylish gay vacations possible.

Our travelers say our trips are “over-the-top”, “magical”, “the best trip I ever had”, and “worth every penny”. We create experiences unique to Zoom Vacations® that you simply won’t find any place else. It’s as if you are traveling with a well-connected best friend who lives in the destination you are visiting, and who is inviting you to the hottest events, taking you on the most incredible excursions, and introducing you to the best restaurants. When you travel with Zoom Vacations®, you leave all prior notions of touring behind, and prepare yourself for something truly magical.

Your vacation awaits…
