Get ready to tackle your bucket list while opening up your world to the most amazing people, places, and experiences out there. DETOURS isn’t just “travel”, it’s genuinely incredible experiences that promise to be unforgettable. Anything but your typical “group tour”, Detours is a laid-back approach to travel that feels more like exploring the world with friends than anything else.  Forget the clipboard-wielding tour guide at the front of a 50-person bus, you won't find that kind of trip here.

We don't believe in constructing "cookie cutter" daily itineraries which attempts to give everybody a trip that suits the masses.  Instead, we are passionate about helping each unique traveler have the time of their life. To achieve this, we understand that everyone is different and that our trip leaders are there to ensure our guests see and do everything that our amazing destinations have to offer.  The only structured itinerary is one that outlines what days and times we travel to a new destination; but we add the activities and experiences together, as we go!  Without a set daily plan, you can relax and do what you want, when you want, and there's always others ready to join you.

12 Days in Spain

Imagine the sound of live music filling the streets, the taste of wine and tapas on a patio in the Spanish sun, all surrounded by the exotic heartbeat of authentic Spain. We've all seen our friends' photos of the stunning architecture, white-sand beaches, dramatic flamenco dancing, and medieval fortresses. We've heard their stories of being blown away by the experience of it all. The food, the wine, the dancing, the cobblestone streets, the romance, the "fiestas and siestas" culture, the beauty at every turn... followed up with an emphatic "I could live there!". This is the Spain we know and love and can't wait to experience with you, whether you're a first time visitor to Spain, or a tenth. Spain is that rare country that will steal a piece of your heart and beg you to come back for it. Our trips through Spain encompass the greatest regions of the diverse country, from eccentric Barcelona on the Mediterranean coast, to the Andalucian towns of Granada and Seville which live up to all the Spanish stereotypes (think flamenco, bull-flights, sangria, and Ole!), and the warmth of the small but uber-gay beach town of Sitges. With 12 days and a laid-back pace we've got the time to fully immerse ourselves in each of these four destinations. Sip sangria above Barcelona on Montjuic, take in some live flamenco in Seville, learn to cook our own tapas under the shadow of the Alhambra in Granada, and take a couple days on the beach in Sitges to soak it all in.

12 Days in Thailand

An awe-inspiring place, Thailand has something for everyone. If you’re an adventure junkie, you’ll probably find yourself bungee jumping, SCUBA diving with sharks, or taking Muay-Thai kickboxing classes. If the wilder side of life isn’t your cup of tea, don’t despair – between Thai cooking classes, hiking to hidden caves, and the world’s most exotic beaches we’re confident you’ll find more than enough to keep you happy. As one of the most gay-friendly destinations in the world, Thailand is an opportunity to feel completely comfortable being yourself while experiencing a whole new side to life. Thailand has that exotic, mysterious, exciting appeal to it. Just hearing the name “Bangkok” can send shivers down people’s spines, and the allure of the country’s jungles and mysterious culture is mesmerizing. Thailand is the Mecca of adventure, carefree living, and open-mindedness. There are fewer inhibiting rules or Western nonsense here, and the Buddhist zen-like culture makes the country one of the happiest places on earth. Our 12-day trips have been designed to maximize your experience. Instead of rushing around in a panic trying to visit as many places as possible, we’ve specially chosen four locations that we know you’ll fall in love with. How are we so sure? Well, we’ve spent many years in this country tirelessly testing out beaches, bars, bungalows and bit of booze just to make sure we can bring you the cream of the crop

12 Days in South Africa

A country of undeniably unique experiences, where it’s possible to be in the presence of giraffes and hippos before breakfast is even served. Where by lunchtime you can have the surreal experience of being surrounded by hundreds of little penguins. Dinner comes with a glass of world-class wine, enjoyed on the patio of that very vineyard that produced it. South Africa is the country of wide open safaris with far more than just the “big 5”, underwater dives with great white sharks, white sand beaches that quickly morph into imposing mountains before fading into wide open plains. A real experience in Africa sparks not just all five senses, but also imagination and emotions quite unlike any other place you’ll experience. Nature has been more than generous to this place, visible as much in its landscape, as in its wildlife at every turn. History has been tumultuous to say the least, emerging in recent years as a world leader in social progress and tolerance. Local South Africans have been rebuilding a country to be proud of, while creating museums and monuments to ensure the past won’t be forgotten.

12 Days in Greece

There is no amount of photos, video, or stories that can prepare a person for the incredibly captivating country that is Greece. It’s a place that few people visit just once. Whether it’s the jaw-dropping scenery, the hospitable people, the fascinating history, the laid-back lifestyle, or the endless exploring opportunities, Greece leaves travelers in awe. Catch the sun setting over Santorini’s cliffs, start your day with a dive into the warm Aegean Sea, sip Ouzo in the shadow of the Acropolis, explore the famously gay island of Mykonos… so many options, all guaranteed to be unforgettable. Our Greece trips promise to deliver the best of Athens and the Greek Islands with stops in dramatic Santorini, cosmopolitan Mykonos, and peaceful Milos. Our trips are always laid-back, leaving plenty of room for spontaneity and adventure. No rushing, no stress, no limiting daily itineraries, just a group of guys who are all excited and ready to explore. And isn’t that what travel is all about?
