Wandering Earl Tours 2017 - small group tours
Since 2012, I’ve been running my Wandering Earl Tours as a side project through this blog, offering unique, small group tours to countries around the world. I’ve now welcomed 190 people on a variety of trips to all corners of the globe.

This is not some big tour company of course. I don’t make contracts with tourist hotels, I don’t pre-plan every single aspect and I don’t create rushed itineraries that only allow you to take a couple of photos before being forced to move on.

It’s just a small operation, with a focus on laid-back travel, learning through first-hand experiences and diving into a country beyond the main sights. It’s also about having a blast together, meeting people, eating great food and having free time to experience each destination in your own way…and of course, keeping it at a reasonable price.

That’s the concept of Wandering Earl Tours.

And now that I’ve had many people join 2, 3, 4 and even 5 trips so far (along with the fact that I already have bookings for 2017 before I even announced the trips), I believe more and more in this concept each year.

So, for those who are looking for this kind of a travel experience, I am extremely excited to announce…

      Hey Molly – I’ll be announcing the tours in about 2 weeks!! Lots of cool trips coming up for next year!

    This is a wonderful idea! I think it is really awesome that you take what you like to do, and share it with others. It would be quite the experience to go on one of these tours. Having a personal guide through a new location can be really handy. Keep doing you!

    Oh my gosh Earl~~~so fun to see all of our smiling faces from our fabulous trip to India. Your 2017 trips look enticing and good to see two of them are already full. We did Portugal this past fall….lovely country and so easy to get around. Hope you’re well. Sending kind regards

      Hey Debbie – Thanks for the message and it’s good timing as I’m actually in Delhi now. Today is Day 1 of my current India tour that I’m leading! Portugal is a great place and glad you had such good time over there! Hope your 2017 is going well!!

    Hi Earl, I first read your blog when you went to Yemen. It is now heart-breaking of course. But I wondered if you might consider offering a backward glance, if only a re-post, to when it was intact? With appreciation, mgw

      Hey Mary – Here is the link to all of my posts about Yemen: https://www.wanderingearl.com/category/countries/yemen/

      Such a beautiful country and I really do hope that it gets back to a state where life has improved for the people there and others can come and visit.

        Hi Earl! I’m another reader who started with your posts about Yemen, and I’d also be interested in a current post looking back on the country in light of the more recent turmoil. Thanks for sharing the world with your readers.

          Hey Samantha – I’ll add that to my list of posts to write! I’m also putting together a Wandering Earl Tour to Socotra Island for 2017 as that has now opened up again. Super excited about returning!

            Woah! Really? Socotra Island has opened up again for 2017?!? That is some great news!!!!
