There are long threads where people argue over 700c versus 26 inch for touring. They're both fine. 26 inch is the winner with a small frame (because of frame geometry) and probably the winner for third world travel as well (because of tire availability).

Otherwise it's just argument, opinion, and a food fight. Personally everything else being equal I prefer 26 inch because I like a larger volume of air to ride on when touring. Touring speeds tend to be slower than general riding and I like the extra cush. YMMV.
