Oscar Wilde Tours – Gay History for Gay Travelers

Sappho and Socrates, Michelangelo and Shakespeare, Marcel Proust and Oscar Wilde: we all know that many of the great figures in art and literature—as well as in other fields—have loved people of their own sex.  And while in some places (such as Classical Greece and Renaissance Florence) a culture of same-sex love has flourished, in others (such as Victorian England and pre-Stonewall America) it has been driven underground.

Up until recently, gay people curious about the places where this history occurred have had limited opportunity to visit them — with the launch of Oscar Wilde Tours, that has now changed.  Dedicated to connecting gay people to their own history, Oscar Wilde Tours is a tour company with a difference.

Schloss Neuschwanstein Oscar Wilde Tours   Gay History for Gay Travelers

Schloss Neuschwanstein

Our tours will take you to the sites where gay history took place. You will visit some of the world’s most enchanting cities and find yourself immersed in their beauty and charm. Yet unlike any other tours you have ever experienced, ours will also show you history from a different perspective—a gay perspective, that dares to speak aloud the triumphs and tragedies of gay life and gay culture in times gone by.

Our tours are exclusive affairs, for the sophisticated traveler. They are designed for small groups of no more than 18 people, and they combine carefully planned and escorted travel with time for you to explore on your own—or with new friends you’ve made on the tour.

We will visit not only famous places, but also lesser-known sites not accessible to larger groups—in particular, places where famous gay people in history have lived and loved. And in keeping with the standards of our tour, our hotels and restaurants are chosen for both their historical associations and their superb quality.

Fascinating Cultural Adventures

Our tours are planned by eminent gay historian Professor Andrew Lear. Accompanying every tour, Professor Lear employs his long experience in group travel to make each tour an unforgettable occasion. In addition, we will enjoy the expertise of local guides in each city, carefully selected for their professionalism and extensive knowledge of gay issues; and we will round out our experience with a range of exciting cultural activities—from lectures by distinguished gay writers and academics, to evenings at the theater and culinary tastings of local artisanal products. An Oscar Wilde tour is always a truly memorable experience. We look forward to creating wonderful memories for you.
