Best Travel Bloggers 2017

Welcome to the CityGuide.Guru's list of top 30 best travel bloggers for 2017! At CityGuide.Guru we are a team of two (husband/wife), and when we aren't travelling we love to read travel blogs. So we went through our bookmarks and saved links to come up with our fav travel blogs.

To get on this list, a blog has to:

  • Have regular updates
  • Post interesting topics, hopefully with nice and high quality photos
  • Must still be updated in 2017
  • The writer(s) must be experienced travellers, and write about travels all over the world (or at least all over a continent - none that only blog about one country)

(They are displayed in a random order. If you think we have missed your favourite travel blogger, get in touch and if we like the blog too we will happily add it to this list!
