For Travellers

The Guide of the Year awards rely on travellers just like you to leave reviews of your tour and guide to help us honour the industry’s best guides. If you have taken a tour in 2018, leave your guide a review to help them win!


For Guides

Guides have the opportunity to compete as either a Cultural Guide or an Adventure guide. Both distinctions offer two separate awards and each boasts their own set of requirements. Find out which one you qualify for below.
