At Journeys Within, we know how important our guides are to making every tour unforgettable for our guests. It is up to our guides to bring the Southeast Asian destinations we showcase to life. Looking to honour the people who go above and beyond as guides, Wanderlust has opened up the nominations for World Guide Awards 2014.
Time and time again the feedback we get from guests highlights just how important guides are to their overall experiences. From facilitating conversations with locals to taking guests to their favourite local haunts, travelers have never hesitated to share their appreciation for our guides with us.
For those guests looking to spread the love, Wanderlust is now accepting nominations for their World Guide Awards 2014 — a global award meant to recognize those guides who create unforgettable memories.
The winner of the Awards will be announced next year, on the 21st October 2014, at a prestigious event at London’s Royal Geographical Society.
I’m sure any of our guides — be it the much-beloved Sina from Cambodia or patient and thoughtful Pong in Thailand — would be overwhelmed to be recognized in their field. Journeys Within is encouraging any guests who have had positive experiences to nominate the guides that touched their lives on the Wanderlust page.
Feel free to check out last year’s winners to get an idea of what kind of guides they are looking to honour.
We know that the Journeys Within team is special — now its time to share that with the world.
The Wanderlust World Guide Awards were launched in 2005 in memory of Wanderlust’s co-founder Paul Morrison.
