2015~2016 Celebrity Guru

It is with great pleasure that we present the 2015-2016 Gay Travel Celebrity Gurus.  In years past, Gay Travel Guru has been a competition – an attempt to find the next gay travel star. But this year, we thought we’d shake things up a bit. We set out to find some of the brightest stars on You Tube and send them out around the globe to do what they do best — entertain you.

In the months to come, we’ll be bringing you videos, blog posts, photos and more from their many adventures around the globe. Check out the talent we’ve rounded up below, and if you’re a destination who is interested in having a guru visit you, click here to find out more info.

In the meantime, kick back and enjoy Davey Wavey, Willam, Bria & Chrissy, Princess Joules and our entire roster of Gay Travel Celebrity Gurus. And make sure to join our Gay Travel VIP list for chances to win free vacations, prizes and so we can keep you "in-the-know" of all the excitement that lies ahead!
