Our Top 5 Favourite Travel Vloggers

Now it’s so much easier to watch YouTube on your Smart TV we seem to be watching less and less of the ‘regular’ television channels. Considering we love to travel it is no surprise that our favourite YouTube channels and vloggers are all travel related.

With over 300 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute, there is a lot of rubbish out there. A lot of vloggers want to be ‘celebrities’ and end up doing an uncharismatic 25-minute piece to camera on ‘How they discovered themselves in Thailand’ without actually showing any footage of Thailand. Another classic are coffee shops, please no more footage of random hipster coffee shops that could be anywhere in the world. Lastly, no more Yoga on the beach!!!!!

That’s enough moaning, what do we actually like and who are our favourite travel vloggers.

Wolters World

Mark Wolters has been travelling for years, solo and with his family. Although the production quality may not be Spielberg’s standard, what he lacks in videography he more than makes up for with really useful information. His videos are relatively short but contain essential information, destination top 10’s, travel tips, loves and hates and much more.

Also, there are very few places he hasn’t been.

Attaché

The YouTube travel channel Attaché is one of the more professional travel shows. It reminds us of an actual TV show rather than the ubiquitous vlog style. Alex Hunter and his cameraman Greg tour the cities of the world bringing you essential tips, travel info and how to avoid those ‘embarrassing breaches of cultural etiquette‘.

We love his ‘dry’ delivery style and that he is not overly gushing with praise like so many generic presenters.

TheTimTracker

Tim and Jenn Tracker mainly vlog about the theme parks in Orlando. We discovered their channel a few years ago when researching an upcoming Florida trip. Their vlog is a great example of a niche travel channel that gives current, local and in-depth information about a specific destination.

We like their upbeat style, they are not over the top and still point out the negatives as well as the positives. This channel helps to cheer us up on a cold, dark UK November’s day.

Samuel And Audrey

Samuel and Audrey are a favourite of Mrs W mainly because they feature local food as well as the sights. They are a young couple (most are younger than us!) but have a relaxed delivery, it’s not all ‘in your face‘ wackiness which can blight a lot of younger travel vloggers. They also actually show the destinations and don’t do 25 minutes of boring talking heads.

Casey Neistat

If your one of the few people who don’t know Casey Neistat he is a filmmaker, vlogger, YouTuber and overall internet celebrity, his video style is one of the most copied on YouTube.
Yes we know he is not strictly a ‘travel vlogger‘ but he does travel a LOT!

What we do love are his airline trips, especially the majorly successful Emirates flight. With Casey, you get to see a different travel lifestyle and get to go behind the scenes of some very interesting situations.

Also, he seems to be genuinely loving the experiences as you would if you were doing it.

Obviously, favourite travel vloggers are a personal preference. We all have our own loves and hates, I know there are a few channels I like but Mrs W hates and vice versa.

We have our own FlyDriveExplore YouTube travel channel where we show actual middle-aged, slightly grumpy travellers, trying to claw back the vlogging title from the beautiful young people!

Do you watch many YouTube travel vloggers? Let us know your favourites.

    Making videos is fun but extremely time consuming! I will definitely check out this list when I get a moment. Watching videos gives you a good feel for the destination and even better when there’s a personality to show you how to enjoy it.

    I have heard of Casey as well, but I have never seen any of his videos. Maybe it is time for me to check him out. I follow KickTheGrind and MikeandJayTravels on YouTube. They are very talented also.

      We are doing more and more video. Worth considering doing more especially with Smart TV’s making it so easy to watch YouTube on the bigger TV screens.

    I’m obsessed with Casey Neistat – I don’t sit through many people’s travel videos because as you said, there’s a LOT of rubbish out there, but Casey’s are always entertaining – I heard about him when the Emirates first class review vlog went viral 🙂 Thanks for this list!
