In the current issue of ManAboutWorld we shine a spotlight on four smaller group gay travel tours operated by gay tour companies on four continents offering unique trips that just a handful of guests (relatively speaking) are able to experience each year, guaranteeing indelible memories, bragging rights and loads of Facebook likes. Note: The SCUBA trip has a special offer for ManAboutWorld & Towleroad readers.
