I strive to deliver the best that is on offer, a unique, quality filled informative personal tour experience. My passion to becoming a Tourist guide started in 2009 when I first began studying for my Cultural Guiding Course and progressing to becoming a South African National Guide. I am also a qualified Beauty Therapist ( so will be glad to arrange a relaxing Spa Treatment)at any one of the highly recommended Spa Resorts that we have to offer in Gauteng. I am also qualified as a Pharmacist Assistant and was previously working in a Hospital Pharmacy for many years, but my passion for travelling and exploring this wonderful country has taken first priority in my life now. I have set up a small Tour Operating Company which I also operate and take pride in. I am a great supporter of nature conservation especially the protection of endangered species, and I help in protecting our Rhino's from being poached! I enjoy the amazing response that is shown from the tourist when they see the diverse wildlife and the awe inspiring moments of a cultural tribal dance, it is such a pleasure to share those moments and know they will definitely take these splendid memories back home with them, and to be part of that is just amazing! The best part of being a a local guide is conducting a private tour which is so personal and you will feel more comfortable if you have more insight about the guide before going on the tour with them. My tours are family orientated and I will compile a tour to suit you and your families interests. You can also ' hang out with the locals" I can arrange an outing with the local's from shopping to eating with the local's. You can choose what you want to do I will arrange it( within limits)! Come and discover the treasures that our part of the world has to offer and let me take you on a journey to experience " THE ESSENCE OF AFRICA" with a local guide! Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
