Back in April, we announced that Viaventure guide Carlos Vivar was shortlisted for the prestigious UK travel magazine Wanderlust’s World Guide Awards 2013. Well, the results are in, and we’re thrilled to announce that Carlos was awarded “Highly Commended!” (Rumor has it, he was just points shy of making it into the top three spots—so close!) Many of you submitted testimonials about your travels with Carlos, and we’d like to thank you for your support. As one of the Wanderlust judges noted, “Carlos’s love of his country, his people, and its history really came across. Reading the testimonials, you can feel that he wanted to share this passion with the clients… and that he wanted to get the local communities involved wherever possible.” Stellar words about a stellar guide who is clearly appreciated by his clients. Thank you, and congratulations to Carlos!
