Since Black Tomato’s launch in 2005, the company’s innovative team has been dreaming up some of the most creative travel experiences in the industry –– trips that place clients at the center of a cinematic-style experience. The company’s recent offering, 007, takes travelers on a James Bond-themed “assignment” through Europe in partnership with the film producers behind the franchise. It’s a 12-night journey stopping in London, Paris, Monaco, Lake Como, and Venice, where you’ll visit shoot locations and recreate famous scenes from the Bond films, with special appearances from consultants and cast members along the way. Though it’s geared toward avid Bond fans, Black Tomato’s 007 experience will thrill any traveler craving an adventure with plenty of pizazz.

Out Adventures

It was a life-changing trip to Antarctica (and a rare encounter with tens of thousands of penguins) that inspired the creation of Out Adventures, a travel company that plans small-group trips for the LGBTQ+ community. Next year, the company is planning trips to Antarctica and Greenland in partnership with Quark Expeditions, as well as a Gorilla Trek to Rwanda, a destination that isn’t typically viewed as LGBTQ-friendly.  “Along with global gay hotspots, we visit seemingly less welcoming places,” explains Out Adventures co-founder Robert Sharp. “This sense of adventure has taught us that despite sometimes hostile politics, a queer (and queer-friendly) community will welcome us and foster important conversations about inclusivity on a grassroots level. Ultimately, we provide a safe environment where guests can relax, be themselves, and open hearts and minds along the way.”

"Checking into Estelle Manor, the closest thing to a Saltburn-esque staycation you`ll ever experience in the UK. Imagine a beautifully restored Jacobean manor on the cusp of the Cotswolds and nestled within 3,000 acres of Oxfordshire parkland, with extravagant interiors to match (expect bold artworks and intricate details around each corner), a Riviera-style pool to lounge by, and three different restaurant to sink your teeth into. The addition of the hotel`s new Eynsham Baths (an incredible spa modelled on traditional Roman baths) really takes the hotel up another notch, despite it already being in a league of its own." - @ginagoesto ...
