We’re hard at work on our annual Tours of a Lifetime issue, which lists the 50 best guided tours of the year. (See last year’s package here.) You can’t have a good tour without a good guide, so we’re putting a call out to our readers to tell us about the best guide they’ve ever had. Be sure to tell us what made him or her so special.
I’ll never forget Natu, for example, our guide on a family trip with Costa Rica Expeditions several years ago. His enthusiasm for the natural wonders of his country was infectious and he had the kids and their parents hanging on his every word. That he wielded a machete like Indiana Jones and let enormous insects crawl up his leg didn’t hurt either.
Your turn to tell us. Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter by using the hashtag #ngtguide.
