Cape Tourist Guide Connection was created and designed by Tourist Guides and is driven to find work for the Tourist Guide.
CTGC was established when it became evident that there was a need for avenues for the freelance Tourist Guides to have direct contact and exposure to the Visitor. The issues that were identified included the need for a commercial intervention that will not only create new and diverse employment opportunities for the Cape based Tourist Guide, but also create awareness to the unique and safe possibilities visitors would be offered by using a Tourist Guide.
The Cape Tourist Guide Connection represents a body of independent Tourist Guides and looks after their commercial interests by making them accessible to the Visitor. It is run by a set of co-ordinators who endeavor to provide immediate service and unforgettable experiences by connecting Visitors up with the appropriate qualified, accredited and passionate Tourist Guide on our database.
The mandate of the Cape Tourist Guides Association (CTGA) is to look after the best interests of the Tourist guide and as such the Cape Tourist Guide Connection has been created to find work for the Tourist Guide, with their support.
This means that the CTGA will be the watchdog of Cape Tourist Guide Connection (CTGC) to ensure that the best interest of the Tourist Guide comes first, that the standard of guiding and the Guides Code of Conduct is adhered to and that Cape Tourist Guide Connection (CTGC) does what it has been mandated to do - find work for the tourist guide.
Our Tourist Guides are qualified in various disciplines, specialities and interests. We are able to tailor make a tour to suit your interests, language preferences, needs and budget.
The Tourist Guides are independent contractors, and have a variety of different sized vehicles all of which have the appropriate legal documents and licenses in place.
Our database is constantly growing with more passionate and interesting Tourist Guides wanting to give you a unique tour of Cape Town or any of the beautiful surrounding areas and routes.
