Cape Tourist Guides Association (CTGA)
The Cape Tourist Guides Association (CTGA) can trace its roots back to the mid 1970's when a group of persons undertaking guided tours decided to form an association. CTGA represents a significant number of registered tourist guides with diverse backgrounds, who speak a number of different languages.
Members range from those legally accredited to guide a particular site or limited geographic area, to those who guide several provinces, to some who have the coveted National accreditation allowing them to guide throughout South Africa.
CTGA is respected in the tourism industry as a body without political, racial, religious or gender bias. It acts as a pressure group, as a consultative body on matters concerning guiding and provides constant professional updating to its members.
