Our style

Incredible, small-group tours that are anything but typical. Get to the heart of your destination. Interact with local people and their communities. Learn about their culture. Visit destinations that a regular group tour can’t visit.

Travel with us, as a friend.

Unique tours you can’t find anywhere else.

Through Wandering Earl Tours, we want to you to have authentic experiences and meet the people who live their everyday lives in the places you’re visiting. We want you to really understand the destinations you’ve explored with us, and never feel like you just “passed through.”

Our tours are built with the help of an extensive network of local contacts and friends in each country, contacts with whom we’ve formed wonderful bonds with over many years. We work together to ensure that our itineraries are full of genuinely rewarding activities away from the tourist crowds instead of a collection of quick photo stops.

And, most of all, we want you to feel like you took the trip you wanted to take.

Tours that are good for everyone.

Our tours are full of people and places we love. And, like anything else that we love, we want to take care of them. We want to make sure the people and places we visit together don’t just survive, but thrive.

That’s why we choose to support local businesses, especially women-owned and minority-owned businesses. We believe a rising tide lifts all boats, which is why we avoid mass tourism and big-bus itineraries, and instead focus on the people that make up the fabric of their local community.

No cookie-cutter trips.

We make a point of handcrafting every trip we offer, which is why we can say with pride that no two tours we offer are the same. Every time we sit down to make an itinerary for a tour, we build it from the ground up. We choose the ideal route, best lodgings, most rewarding activities, tastiest restaurants, and more, that will all lead to the most extraordinary trip possible.

We also allow for flexibility on the spot, so if we see something fantastic happening (ever been to an Indian wedding?) we can stop and join in the fun without worrying that we’ll be “off-schedule.”

It’s for these reasons that we don’t make contracts with hotels, restaurants, and tourist sites like so many other operators. We want to have the freedom to offer the absolute best trip, and we want to make sure it’s not just what you expected, but so much more.
