The Wanderlust World Guide Awards launched in December 2005, to recognise the unsung heroes of the travel world: guides and tour leaders.
Each year, thousands of guides from around the world are nominated by their clients, all eager to tell us about an individual who has gone beyond the call of duty to make their trip a remarkable experience.
Nominations close at the end of February each year, and the winners are announced each October at a life-affirming celebration at London's Royal Geographical Society.
