Wanderlust Guide of the Year

Everyone at Imaginative Traveller would like to wish Luca Alfatti, guide at
our sister company Dragoman, all the best for the Wanderlust Guide of the Year

From over 1000 nominations (as voted for by the public), it
has now been whittled down to the final Fab Four. The winner will be chosen by
judges including Bill Bryson and Kate Humble at a prestigious ceremony at the
Royal Geographical Society in London
this Thursday.

Luca is one of Dragoman’s longest-serving crew members and has driven up and down
South America, Africa, India,
and from London to Beijing and back again. He even inspired one
of his own clients to go on to become a Dragoman driver. His supporters loved
his enthusiasm, his seemingly unlimited knowledge (“from history, politics, to
where to find the best local kebab”), and his determination to add special and
unique experiences to his tours - “A one-man Lonely Planet” to quote one

Congratulations to Luca and Dragoman whatever the outcome as this is a great honour for both of
them.  Dragoman seem to be making a habit
of this as last year one of their other guides, Gaetano Barone, close friend of
Luca’s and fellow Italian, came second.

Enjoy the awards ceremony Luca and good luck!
