Ever since 2018, we have been hosting our own gay sailing trip each summer. Our first hosted trip started in Croatia and then the following year we sailed the Greek Islands. Since we first started our own trips in 2018 we have hosted hundreds of guests on some amazing summer adventures.

We've enjoyed getting to know readers of our blog and our social media followers since we all share the same passion. We've had a blast on all these trips and gotten such great feedback from our guests that we've decided to expand our hosted trips in 2024/25. 

In 2024 we'll be hosting two gay group cruises on Virgin Voyages cruises! The first porting at Greece, Croatia and Montenegro. The second Spain, France and Italy. As for 2025, we're excited to announce we're embarking on a brand new Virgin Voyages cruise from Miami through the Caribbean. Finally, after the resounding success of last year, we'll be hosting two land tours in Spain, where we'll be exploring Barcelona and Sitges plus Madrid, Toledo and Segovia.

All of our friends and followers are invited to join any (or all!) of these trips!

Spain is an amazing destination and it's one of the most progressive places in the world for the LGBTQ+ community. We've partnered with The Queer Travel who helped assemble the itinerary of this gay Spain group tour and will manage the reservations as well as all the on-the-ground logistics. This will be an awesome gay group trip so you can come with a friend, that special someone or even come alone. In fact, many guests on our hosted trips are solo travelers so you won't be alone and you can make new friends while we explore together. Spain is famous around the world for its cultural traditions, great beaches, history and welcoming atmosphere. As the third country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage back in 2005, it’s no surprise that Spain is welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community. For the 2nd year in a row, we'll be your hosts on this incredible trip to Barcelona and Sitges where you can tickle your imagination with images of flamenco dancers in the night, sounds of wine glasses clashing amongst Spanish banter, infinite tapas landing on your table and the sea breeze lightly brushing your skin as the water crashes onto the coast. The Spaniards live with passion and a thirst for life. Open your heart, mind and drink it in. Let us show you the magic of this amazing destination.

Gay Group Tour of Madrid, Toledo & Segovia hosted by Two Bad Tourists

Dates: September 13-19, 2024
Destination/Route: Madrid, Toledo & Segovia, Spain
Trip Type: Gay group trip (10-20 guests)
Hosted by: Two Bad Tourists, yep that’s us!

Madrid is perhaps not as well known of a gay destination as its Catalan sister in the northeast, Barcelona. But the truth is that Madrid is a bigger city with more offerings from a nightlife perspective and many LGBT+ oriented events throughout the year. There are very few cities in the world that offer the same kind of welcome to LGBT+ residents and visitors. Madrid is a fantastic destination especially if you enjoy local neighborhoods, art, the gay scene, nightlife and beautiful weather. After exploring the capital city for several days, we'll later head out on day trips to both Toledo and Segovia, which are both just an hour's drive from Madrid. Toledo is a medieval town that was once the capital of Spain before the Royal family moved the capital to Madrid in the 1500's. Segovia is another famous town nearby known for its Roman aqueduct as well as the fairytale-style castle. We'll spend the days exploring these medieval towns through their curving alleyways, cultural museums and historic monuments. We'll be your hosts on this incredible trip to Madrid with day trips to Toledo & Segovia from September 13-19, 2024.
