Gay Bar-Hopping frequently asked questions
• Group Fun is always more fun! We have singles, couples, groups celebrating special events, first timers, repeat visitors and even locals who know how much fun our tour is. We bring the group fun to you especially when you haven’t had time to meet anyone.
• We’re connected! We also own GAYPV Magazine so our tour has invitations to private men’s parties which are not open to the public. Our tour includes many events you would not find on your own. We also know the bar schedules, when the go go’s starts, what drag queens are performing the night of your tour, etc.
• You can’t know what you don’t know. We know weeks in advance about new bar openings or closings, schedules of entertainers who are in town, and special events coming to the city – so we can assist your vacation planning and make sure your tour includes that event. We get daily updates on bar hours, drink specials and special entertainment so you don’t have to bother trying to figure it all out. We develop a schedule that meets and greets celebrities, porn stars, and drag entertainers who are in town and that you probably wouldn’t meet on your own. We have them join us on the tour or we visit the place where they are hosting their event. Topher Dimaggio (text him to join you while you are in town and see if he responds lol), Seth Fornea, Andrew Christian, Miss Richfield 1981, Miss Conception, and Coco Peru are just a few of the hundreds who have joined us on our tours over the years.
• No Cover VIP club access and VIP seating. No other tour in town can walk right into the dance club when the line is down the street any day when it is busy (New Years, Semana Santa, Latin Fever, El Grito, Atlantis Cruise Day, a typical Friday or Saturday night). We get the VIP seating in bars where they have it. Most tours include all cover charges. Some exceptions may apply during special events.
• No Waiting on Drinks. How long have you waited on a drink in a bar on a busy night? We pre-order your drinks so upon your arrival at the bar your drink is ready.
• No Waiting on your bill, change or tip money. How long have you spent on a night out waiting on the bill, change, or credit card slip at a busy bar? When is the last time you walked out of a bar without paying? We’ve even taken care of server tips so you don’t have to fumble looking for change. All we ask is you show your appreciation to your local tour host with a thank-you tip at the end of the night.
• We provide a great gay map that includes value and discounts to many gay businesses that you might visit when in town.
