The time has come for me to announce the next Wandering Earl Tour…
“I Love Istanbul” Tour
Dates: May 1st – 6th, 2013
This unique tour of Istanbul is being organized by myself and my good friend/fellow travel blogger Anil from FoxNomad.com after the idea to organize such a tour came to us one day while discussing how much we both, well, love Istanbul. And the more we talked about, the more we realized that, as a result of our own travel experiences and the contacts/ connections we’ve made in this city, we could put together an amazing itinerary, one that offers an experience unlike any other. So, we got to work and put together this tour, and now we’re ready to take bookings!
Here’s a description of what this tour is all about….
“The tour will cover major sights such as the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, but will also focus on lesser known locations and neighborhoods throughout this city. The “I Love Istanbul Tour” offers an experience that simply could not be had on your own. You’ll have visits to impressive Ottoman-era palaces, unique and educational walking tours, a hamam experience (Turkish bath!) and even behind-the-scenes access to Turkey’s most famous baklava factory (complete with a baklava ‘tasting’ session) all as part of the adventure as well.
That’s not to mention the incredible Turkish cuisine that you’ll enjoy along the way, with nightlong traditional mehane dinners, lunches at some of the best local joints, incredible Ottoman cuisine and the most delicious street food the city has to offer. As for entertainment, how about some Turkish folk music at a popular late night venue, a night out along famous Istiklal Street and a relaxing evening or two chatting with locals, sipping tea and puffing away at a shisha cafe. It’s all included, plus plenty more, part of this unforgettable six-day experience to one of the greatest cities in the world!”

If you’re interested, just send me an email and I’ll forward you a more comprehensive description of the tour. Once you have a read of that, if you then want to confirm your spot, just follow the deposit instructions and you’ll be all set to go.
Keep in mind that space is very limited. We’ve already had a few people sign up from those who asked to be placed on our early list and we’ll only be taking a maximum of 8 participants. This way, we can keep the tour truly personal and ensure that this is the most rewarding adventure imaginable!
