Context sensitive View ... I need it too sensitive (Drupal 7)

My site will show a Business Listing (using a View).
All my business listings are classified using many taxonomies. Three of them can be "City", "Kind of Business" and ... "State"

After clicking on a Business Listing taxonomy term I can see all the business that share the same "category".

For example, after clicking on "Texas" (a taxonomy term in my listing) I can see all the business in Texas. But I see them in a very rude listing. To avoid that I can see that listing using a contextual View with one contextual filter/parameter. Ok, no problem.

But if I make a click on another vocabulary (the "City", for example) then I need to create (or clone) my previous View because if I add a second contextual filter then I don't see any listing under the View. Under the second View (the cloned or new one) I delete the previous filter and create a new one, based on the "new" ("cities") vocabulary.

The problem now is that... I have about 30 vocabularies.

Do I need to clone 30 Views?
Is it possible to have this View sensitive to 30 taxonomies?

Any additional suggestion about implementation?

My site is in Spanish, please let me know if you need to see it working.

filter criteria

soare you after a single view that can show different information based on these different taxonomies? does it have to use contextual filters? assuming you don't need to pass the filter to URL you could always use exposed filter criteria. goto filter criteria in views and add a filter then just select the option to let the user make the edits. it'll give you drop down menus that let you choose data based on the criteria (you can then hide that field so it wont actually display in the views, just for the sake of your filter).

is that a helP?
