Toto Tours News ~ October 2022

 
Message from the President

While composing this newsletter I’m also running around and packing for our Morocco tour. We have a great group of 17 guys for this tour, and amazing adventures are in store for us! You can follow along by checking my posts on our Facebook Page. I’ll try to upload a few photos every day once the tour kicks into gear on Halloween. We’ll be costumed as very happy Toto Tourists enjoying our welcome festivities in Casablanca. “Here’s looking at you, kid.”

Peru Itinerary Published

The detailed itinerary for our exciting new Peru adventure is now available on our website. Within a few hours of it being published we received reservations from some who had already expressed interest in the tour! The highlight of our expedition will, of course, be our time spent at incredible Machu Picchu. But things get even better from there as we board the luxury Belmond Andean Explorer train and continue for two nights to Lake Titicaca and on to beautiful Arequipa, a World Heritage City at the foot of a stunning volcano. Click here to see the full details of this unique journey to discover the mysteries of the Inca.

South India Tour
January 2024

In our last newsletter we indicated that we were in the planning stages for a tour of the best of southern India, focusing on the states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Those plans are nearly complete, and it is shaping up to be a 14-day journey beginning in Chennai on January 10, 2024, and ending in Cochin on January 23. Those dates do not include international travel to and from India. In addition to sampling the dazzling temples, beaches and a special festival (Pongal) in Tamil Nadu, luxuriate in the beautiful highlands, tea plantations and canals of lush Kerala. If you have only experienced North India, you haven’t seen anything yet! Please let us know if you’d like to receive an advance copy of this new itinerary via email.

Looking Ahead . . .

We are happy to announce that we have secured a luxury hotel barge for a leisurely trip on the canals of France, from the Upper Loire to the Ile de France in late September 2024. For those who have never been to Paris before, an optional 3-day Paris city tour will be available before the cruise begins. The main tour starts with a night in Paris, followed by a transfer to Briare to begin our seven-day / six-night cruise north, taking in many quaint villages and grand estates along the way. Among the highlights will be a visit to the village of Barbizon and the sumptuous castle of Fontainebleau. All meals and beverages (including fine wines) are included aboard. We’ll end with a farewell dinner and one more overnight in Paris. Let us know if you would like us to add you to the list of people to notify when more details are available.

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

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

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

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.
