Culture Site Guide
A Cultural Site Guide is a person that conducts short localised tours with an emphasis on cultural wealth, both to enlighten and entertain visitors. South Africa offers many opportunities for international and local tourists as a tourism destination where people can experience a variety of tourism resources and attractions. These guides are generally very well informed about the history of the site and have a broad overview of where it fits into the diverse history of our country. A Cultural Site Guide can operate in one specific site or qualify to work as a competent guide in numerous sites in a given area. A site can be a particular city, cultural centre, monument, museum, village, municipal area, township, battlefield, etc. A Cultural Site Guide can also qualify as a specialised guide in an area that conducts tours such as wine tours around wine estates, walking tours around historically rich towns, cultural food tours through townships, architectural tours in a given city, etc.
