What are Concierge Travel Advisors Hosted Trips?
Each year, Concierge Travel Advisors hosts a number of intimate small group trips, which offer single travelers, couples, and groups of friends, the opportunity to explore a new part of the world in the company of like-minded travelers and a Concierge Travel Advisors host. These trips allow travelers to share their adventures with newfound friends while having significant freedom to explore independently. Some of these trips are specifically designed for the LGBT community (but allies are also welcome) while others simply tend to have a significant number of LGBT guests.
