I was born in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1989. I was raised and educated in Cape Town. Growing up in a very poor community I always wanted to become a doctor. When I finished school in 2006 my parents did not have money for me to study further.
I worked at a packaging company for 8 months, knowing that this will never be my final destination.
An opportunity came my way to study tourism for 3 months in Rome, Italy.
I came back to Cape Town in December 2007 and could not find a job in tourism. I eventually ended up as a cashier at Ackermans. I worked there for 8 months. After Ackermans I got a job as a hostess / cabin attendant on the Greyhound Bus service. I worked there for 5 years. The Greyhound is a luxury bus service that travels all over South Africa.
After my contract ended in 2014, I sold funeral policies. After two years I realised that selling funeral policies is not for me. I resigned not knowing what I will do next.
After being unemployed for 2 months, I got a job as a marketer at a small tour company. The tour operator told me to accompany him on a tour to see what happens on the road, so that I will be able to sell the tours better. On this tour is where I’ve realised my passion to become a tour guide.
Afterwards I did a Tour Guide Course and worked for Hilton Ross for a year.
This is a great way to have a first hand experience of the Oldest city in South Africa. Your Tourguide Driver will be someone that was Born and Bred in Cape Town, and like they say who knows the place better than the locals.
