Experiences with misterb&b: experience the city like a gay local

When it comes to exploring the world and experiencing your pride, misterb&b is not just committed to providing you with beautiful accommodation. It is also committed to making sure you get the most out of your travel experience wherever in the world you may be. By providing a platform of connection with 210,000 hosts, along with our comprehensive gay city guides and our host insider tips, our goal is to help you nail your gaycation and strengthen the global gay community, one country at a time. 

 

To make your next gaycation all the better, we have also recently introduced our experiences feature, which offers a curated portfolio of different gay-related experiences. From New York and London, to Barcelona and Rome, we offer a range of experiences that allow you to meet like-minded individuals and discover something new about the place you’re visiting. Here we round-up a few to give you a little nudge of inspiration for your next experience with misterb&b.    

 

In order to book your experience, simply contact the host of the experience through misterb&b, and book directly with them. In turn they will provide you with a code which you can later use to leave a review about the experience on the misterb&b site. We encourage this, so if you have some love to share about your experience, tell the community all about it.  

Barcelona

 

When it comes to things to do in Barcelona, the opportunities are endless. From bar-hopping through the city’s hipster El Raval, to grabbing your Insta-winning shot of the famous Sagrada Familia, this city will keep your pulse beating. The city is also home to many of our experiences, which are catered to different tastes. If your idea of heaven is a serve of local food accompanied with new people and wine, you’ll love our Clandestine Dinner experience. The four-hour journey is compared by Rodolfo, who offers an exclusive cooking show, followed by a 9-course dinner, then dancing with a private DJ. 

 

 

For something a little more active, Rainbow Tours offers private LGBTQ walking tours of Barcelona’s hottest locations, including the Sagrada Familia and the Gothic Quarter. This is the ideal way to blend a bit of culture, a bit of socializing, and plenty of fun! Otherwise, you can try out a fitness experience with Jamie, who provides boutique personal training in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. Whether you’re a fitness novice or an absolute gym junkie, Jamie will guide you through a series of exercises in his peaceful, light, and airy studio. This is all concluded with a green juice at neighboring cafe, Federal. Who ever thought you could return from a gaycation to Barcelona actually healthier than when you arrived?

 

 

Sydney

 

Heading down under? Sydney is Australia’s largest city, and is packed with plenty of experiences to make your Aussie adventure all the more exciting. If you’re traveling with your respective other, why not treat yourselves to some couple photography? Frank has been specializing in photography for 15 years, and offers a 1.5-hour shoot, along with 20 edited, high-res photos to keep. Alternatively, if you would rather get behind the camera, Frank also provides a two-hour photography tutoring session, which covers both technical and creative aspects of taking the winning shot - life skills accomplished! 

Paris

 

If Australia is a little too far, and you’d like to indulge in a romantic gaycation to the city of love, you’ll be pleased to know Paris is jam-packed with different experiences too. The city’s gayborhood is Le Marais, and it offers a charming labyrinth of streets filled with gay bars and venues. If you would like a tailored experience of Le Marais, sign up for Brian’s gayborhood tour with gay locals. You’ll learn about the vivid history of the quarter, and visit some of its best venues including a dreamy chocolate shop and the city’s last gay bookshop. Otherwise, you can capture a piece of Paris to take back home with our infrared photography experience. Here you will learn the technique of infrared photography, and snap your very own shots of the Eiffel Tower and the Invalides. 

 

While a trip to Paris may be most commonly represented by leisurely strolls by the River Seine and afternoon sessions in quaint wine bars, several of our experiences also give gay travelers some unique holiday opportunities. If you’re a die-hard Yogi, or you’d like to give the lotus flower pose a shot for the first time, sign up for partner Yoga and Meditation adventures with Benjamin. During the one or two-hour sessions, you can experience either uniquely-crafted Yoga sequences and harmony-based Meditation practices through partnership.

 

“We'll explore the dynamic realm of Partner Yoga, where we find deeper, more delicious sensations by using each other as an aid on our Yoga Journey.” Benjamin   

New York

 

If you’ve got your sights set on the Big Apple instead, sign up for one - or many - of our listed experiences and see New York like never before. While it’s rare to never be left short of things to do in NYC, the various experiences on offer will give you something a little more unique than a Times Square selfie for your next gaycation. Cocktails are good at the best of times, but how about delving into the art of mixology with a Craft Cocktail Tour? Not only will you visit some of the city’s best Speakeasies and cocktail lounges, but you’ll also learn about new spirits and get the chance to make your very own craft cocktail. It’s time to get creative! 

 

 

Otherwise if you would prefer to walk in the footsteps of your favorite big screen actors, check out the NYC movie and TV series tours. Curated by On-Location Tours, you’ll get an insider’s perspective and behind-the-scenes information on all your favorite TV shows and movies. Whether you want to channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, or you’d like to go gangster for the day with a Sopranos Sites tour, On-Location Tours has you covered. Cosmopolitan anyone? 

 

Madrid

As one of Europe’s gayest cities, Madrid should also feature on your travel itinerary. After sinking one or two cervezas in Madrid’s gayborhood, Chueca, fill your hungry tummy by signing up to an incredible tapas experience. Over the course of three hours, let Raúl take you on an original tapas crawl, where you’ll get to sample local treats at five different venues throughout the city. From a slow-food tavern to a one-century old bodega, you’ll be charmed from the get-go with this experience. The following day, burn off all that tapas with a ride - a horse ride that is. During this experience, Marcos will take you on an incredible one-hour journey through the Spanish countryside on horseback, and conclude everything with a tasty tapas picnic with locals, perfection! 

 

So are you ready to do your next gaycation a little differently? Whether you plan to dig into some locally-crafted food, or you’re tempted by a historic tour of a city’s gayborhood, our experiences ensure you can explore the world, and experience your pride, everywhere you travel.
