There is no other city like it in the world and while Istanbul certainly has a well beaten tourist path, Wandering Earl and I would like to show you everything in between. Back in 2013 we invited you to our I Love Istanbul Tour and I’m more than excited to bring back the next version for 7 days and 6 nights beginning April 14th, 2015.

I’ll be hosting the tour with my friend Derek Baron (Wandering Earl) who’s been running successful tours around the world for the past three years. Accommodation, daily meals, transportation, entrance passes are all included in the Wander Around Istanbul Tour which costs $1,000 for the trip April 14-20th, 2015.

“When I first signed up for the “I Love Istanbul” tour I thought – What have I committed to? What if Earl is a total weirdo? But I had no reason to worry. It felt more like I was traveling with friends who wanted to show me everything great about the city. If I had traveled to Istanbul on my own I would have hit all the main tourist destinations, but the benefit of following Earl (and fellow tour leader Anil) is that they know how to find the real treasures.” -Amanda O.

In case you want to cure your wanderlust a bit earlier than next spring, Earl also has his Wander Across India Tour coming up on February 10th, 2015, a two and a half week tour of the world’s largest democracy.

I was with Earl to help out on his first India tour in 2012, which is a great deal at $1,850, considering meals, accommodation, transportation, and activities are included over 16 nights.

We try to keep both the Istanbul and India tour groups small and in both cases they’ve already got a few spots filled; so don’t want too long to let us know you want to join. Those of you who are interested in either (or both, hey wanderluster!) can find out more and sign up the links below:
