MESSAGE from the President - April 2022

 
A Fresh Start in Iceland

Are you sick and tired of staying home and feeling isolated by this pandemic? Are you casting about for a safe place to go on your first post-pandemic international trip? Are you weary of the steady bombardment of negative news about politicians trying to take away your rights, and the seemingly endless images of humans inflicting pain and suffering on others?

Refocus your view of life on this planet during our tour of Iceland this summer. Remind yourself that harmony with nature, and peace and equality among human beings, can (and do) exist on Earth. This beautiful land is a shining example of all that is right with the world. Celebrate life and heal your spirit on our first tour offering after a 2-year pandemic hiatus.

Due to heavy demand for hotel space in this much-sought-after destination, our tour must close to new bookings at the end of April. Don’t delay if you want to join this amazing adventure!

Dates are July 29 - August 7, 2022. Click here for details.

The Good Life in Italy (for less)

Few experiences can compete with our “La Dolce Vita” tour of Italy for inspiration and grandeur. This is the best of Italy! We unveil the magic and romance of Venice, the pastoral beauty of Tuscany, and the breathtaking art and culture of Florence and Rome, including the dazzling Vatican museums. Having recently eliminated pre-arrival Covid testing requirements for vaccinated travelers, Italy has truly rolled out its welcome mat, and Toto Tours wants to add an extra flourish!

For a limited time, Toto Tours is offering a special incentive to book this tour. All reservations received between now and the end of April qualify for a $200 price discount! That will cover more than a few Espresso, Gelato, and/or Campari to make “La Dolce Vita” even sweeter!

Dates are September 2 – 12, 2022. Click here for details.

Jewels of the Adriatic

Montenegro, Croatia and Slovenia line the beautiful coast of the Adriatic Sea, just across from Italy. When you search out the top ten reasons to visit each of these countries, spectacular wonders of nature are the common theme: the dazzling beauty of the bays, islands, seaside villages, mountains, forests, and waterfalls. In short, this is a nature-lover’s paradise!

The list of highlights on this tour includes: UNESCO World Heritage sites; filming locations for the series Game of Thrones; culinary delights including special tastings of oysters, wines, prosciutto, and truffles; stunning National Parks; the Julian Alps; and medieval cities. It's all topped off with a private farm-fresh farewell dinner in an ancient grove of olive trees. Early October is a spectacular time to explore this region amidst autumnal bounty and glory.

Dates are September 30 – October 14, 2022. Click here for details.

Exotic and Spicy Morocco

Morocco is a country of dizzying diversity. Here you'll find spectacular seaside vistas, epic mountain ranges, sweeping deserts, and ancient cities bursting with fabulous markets and warm hospitality. From Saharan sand dunes to the peaks of the High Atlas Mountains, Morocco is tailor-made for adventure. Its cities are some of the most exciting in Africa. Lose yourself in their ancient hearts, from the winding maze of the Medina in Fes to the carnival-like atmosphere of the square in Marrakesh. Enter walled fortress casbahs in the rocky desert and stroll the sea walls protecting port cities.

Toto Tours has hosted previous magical journeys to Morocco, but this departure includes many new places. Repeat visitors will have a distinctive and exclusive experience in this exotic land. Come with us to “ze casbah!” Book soon — The tour is almost full.

Dates are October 31 – November 11, 2022. Click here for details.

About

Toto Tours has been serving the LGBT community since 1990. We have the distinction of being the only gay tour company in existence which has been operating with the same ownership and management for such a long span of time. We are dedicated to creating exciting travel opportunities that enable our community to explore the wonders of the world in comfort and safety while having the time of our lives. Our clients come back year after year to travel with friends they met on previous trips, meet new people, and explore different parts of the world. We constantly develop new adventures to appeal to everyone, from those venturing on their first international trip, to even the most experienced and frequent world travelers. Our name is derived from the Latin word meaning "all-inclusive." The rainbow colors of the gay flag weave through the word TOTO to symbolize our connections to each other, our communities, and the world. Welcome to Toto Tours, where gay men, lesbians, their close friends and adult family members are invited to travel together to discover all the delights this world has to offer -- "in Toto."

KEEP HOPE ALIVE

In this difficult time we have created a short video message (at the right) to offer encouragement, and to remind everyone that this pandemic will someday be a memory. We might feel helpless right now, and unable to do all the things that we love (like exploring the world), but we can use this time to take an exciting inner journey to explore more about who we are and what we believe. We could very well emerge from such an adventure as more centered humans who are better able to cope with unexpected situations, and grateful for all the good things we have. This is the Toto Spirit. We support you on this inner journey and look forward to the day when we can once again travel together! -- Dan Ware, Founder

Ty Dote

Words cannot describe the beauty of Africa -- seeing wildlife in their natural habitat along with the beauty and landscape of the Namibian desert. I had such a great time that I returned for my second Toto Tour (to the Balkans) one year later!

Grover Hartt & Charles Foster
Dallas, TX

The meticulous arrangements, including knowledgeable and accessible lecturers with comfortable and luxurious accommodations, impressed us a lot during our incredible trip to Antarctica.

Nick Barrett and Piero Bonino
Brighton and Hove, UK

Our Normandy tour with Toto in 2016 was fascinating, with a brilliant local guide who had an encyclopedic knowledge of French History, Customs and Culture.

Gary Ku

I had an excellent time with the Toto Tours family for our Antarctica cruise. Dan is always making sure everyone is taken care of and included. I would encourage people to give Toto Tours a try because it is awesome!

Hima Pamoedjo

I am a retired illustrator, and I enjoy traveling all around the world with Toto Tours. I've gone with them to Costa Rica, Newfoundland, Germany, Turkey, and most recently to Tanzania where we saw incredible wildlife! I love meeting new friends on Toto Tours, and hope I will meet you on a future tour -- somewhere in this beautiful world!

Russell Andrews
Lawrenceville, Georgia, near Kotor, Montenegro

It was such a great tour with an expertly thought-out itinerary visiting a mix of "can't miss" sites and small out of the way gems that a larger group might not have been able to do. I truly look forward to my next journey with Toto.
