This month saw the second annual award ceremony for Enchanting Travels in India celebrating the efforts of local guides from each of our destinations in India. Trip Coordination Manager Sarika Chopra reports back after the event.
It is always heart-warming to see how proud and motivated our local guides are in steadfastly assisting our guests throughout each Enchanting trip. We see this every day on-the-ground but it is fully appreciated when you witness their combined energy when they come together!
After last year’s inaugural event our second guide award ceremony took place at the Leela Palace hotel in New Delhi. It’s always a multi-lingual function and this year was no different with five languages represented. Enchanting Travels is the only travel company that hosts such an event and so the ceremony was hugely appreciated by all our guides and participating members. Co-Founder Alex Metzler opened the ceremony alongside managers from our Operations and Trip Coordination teams.
The purpose is simple: to recognize efforts and award our best performers.
The ceremony brought home to everyone involved that we are connected through a common vision. It also offered an opportunity for our guides to share ideas through an enjoyable interactive session that was peppered with fun stories. We heard so many positive comments as guides shared their experiences with us. They narrated small incidents and told us why they feel proud to work with us and why is it that they feel so connected.
The evening ended on a real high – with a High Tea, naturally!
The guides that were notably awarded for their contributions, based on guest and team feedback are:
- English: Vikram Khangarot (Jaipur) / PK Pant (Agra)
- German: Lalit (Jaisalmer) / Beena Mishra
- French: Bhupender (Delhi)
- Italian: V. C. Mishra (Delhi)
- Spanish: Prithvi Singh (Jaipur)
The Overall Local Guides Award went to: Vikram Khangarot (Jaipur)
All the efforts of personally handpicking our local guides through a stringent interview process are worth it. We feel incredibly proud that we have so many well-read, intelligent guides working with us and are contributing to the success of Enchanting Travels in India.
Congratulations to all our local guides in India for continually enchanting our guests!
Let our award-winning team plan and execute your journey of a lifetime in India.
