Namaste! I am Narender (you can call me Narsa or Naru).
I started working in 1996 as a freelance tour guide till I joined Enchanting Travels. The freedom that Enchanting Travels gives me to plan the sightseeing program together with our guests is a wonderful thing.
Many travel companies plan all the details of sightseeing in advance, and if guests are not so keen on the program we have to check with the company if we can change or add to the itinerary. At Enchanting Travels I can take such decisions myself and this flexibility works out much better for the guests.
I love the recognition. Enchanting Travels understands the amount of work, effort and ability required to give a stellar performance and ensure that a guest’s trip goes from being ‘Good’ to ‘Excellent’. They are very motivating with the way they reward their guides and I am proud to have won the Enchanting Travels India Guide Award three times.

Hola! I am Nicole. I was born in the northern suburbs of Buenos Aires, and grew up with a bilingual background as my parents are Swiss and German.

To me, traveling means, perhaps contradictorily, to shorten distances and to connect dots. At the end of each journey, I am convinced yet again that there is no better place for me than my home in Argentina.
My dream is to continue growing, personally and professionally, surrounded by the people I love and care about.
I am from Yangon and I initially started working as a German tour guide. In all of these years, my guests from Enchanting Travels have been simply wonderful!
