“For a title like Condé Nast Traveler to recognize our work and select me—from among the best travel planners in the world—as a top travel specialist, is an incredible achievement for me and my team.”
St. Michaels, MD (PRWEB) November 23, 2011
Pascale Bernasse of French Wine Explorers has been honored with an enviable spot on the 2011 List of Top Travel Specialists, published by high-end luxury travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler.
The annual list by Condé Nast Traveler, the country’s premiere travel publication, represents the world’s finest travel companies, and is one of the most highly sought honors in the travel and tourism industry. Specialists are chosen for offering the best combination of specialized knowledge, first-hand travel experience, local connections, user-friendliness, and value. Every year, the Condé Nast Traveler team evaluates hundreds of new applicants. Each undergoes a rigorous screening process that includes a 47-question application with sample itineraries and client references and phone interviews.
While French Wine Explorers has been honored with other industry accolades, including several prestigious Magellan Gold Awards, being named to the Top Travel Specialists List is special honor for Pascale Bernasse, French Wine Explorers president.
“We work diligently to create the finest luxury travel experiences for our guests. For a title like Condé Nast Traveler to recognize our work and select me—from among the best travel planners in the world—as a top travel specialist, is an incredible achievement for me and my team,” says Bernasse.
The 12th Annual Top Travel Specialist Collection will be published in the December 2011 issue of the magazine, and will be available through Condé Nast Traveler’s various electronic formats, including an on-line digital edition for the iPad and a new web site that will be launching soon. Bernasse has also been invited to attend the elite 2012 Top Travel Specialists Summit, the travel industry’s leading annual conference.
