Expert Private and Custom Tours

More than 30 YEARS OF


Wanderlust is all about creating exceptional travel experiences.

With more than 30 years of experience creating custom itineraries for friends, families and small groups, we can help you organize a custom, one-of-a-kind travel experience, tailored to your interests. 


We offer you the highest level of personal service, responding pro-actively and keeping you informed every step of the way. All of our accommodations are hand-picked for their ambience, personal service, location and quality. Because all our groups are small, each guest gets special attention and we can stay, dine and travel where traditional tour groups can't. You will travel in style in premium vehicles driven by our friendly and informative chauffeur-guides. 


Private does not mean pricey. You will be pleasantly surprised how well our prices compare to other travel companies. We offer custom travel as well as a small number of scheduled departures in France, England, Scotland and Ireland — see those destinations on our website for more information.

Our vast experience makes Wanderlust the perfect starting point for creating the tour you want. We can customize any of our existing itineraries to your needs....or we’ll create a unique travel experience just for you, catered to your tastes. Whether you are interested in cooking classes, wine tastings, gourmet food, culture or history...we do all the work, you just have to show up!


Hugh Barnes, founder and owner of Wanderlust, is a cultural and hospitality expert with over 30 years of travel and tour experience.

Whether you are a couple, family or group of friends Wanderlust offers you exceptional quality at the most affordable price.
