Does anyone know if there is a way to locate and hire a tour guide to show you around in a European city?
Next year in September,I will be spending 2 nights in Rome (pre cruise) and thought it would be great to hire a gay or gay friendly tour guide to get me through the city...especially in the evening. To have a gay guide take you through the sights and describe the city from a gay perspective would be a unique experience, rather than with a straight group of tourists you could not "dish" with. I am not talking about a paid escort, but someone who is trained in touring the city. At night it would be even more advantageous to see the restaurants and night spots for the locals...again from a gay/lesbian perspective and insite.
I have never seen this topic discussed and wanted to know if any other readers had any experience or knowledge in this area.
Thanks for reading.
I was really surprised to find that someone (Harry Martin???) struck my advice letter to you bkz there was nothing in it that was objectional, as far as I could see. But I do understand WHY the other letter was struck: You cant post an email address advertising a business on Cruisemates........makes sense.
Hope your search won't be too difficult finding a tour guide in Rome.
But excellent question, Tom. I know my parents had private guides in Europe, which they really enjoyed. But I dunno about one who would be able to point out the gay areas of town, etc. Hmmm, this is probably a good time for a knowledgeable TA.

If anyone is going to Venice...I would suggest hiring Tony Bird. He is about 37, from England, has a Gay B&B outside of venice. we have hired and stayed with him several times. He is very funny and a professional guide! Knows everything from 5 star restaurants and art to gay beaches and cruise bars!
