TOURIST GUIDE WORKSHOP
27 March 2014
Gauteng Guides Association delegated 4 of the committee to attend the International Tourist guide Day held in KZN near Matubatuba.a well organised event by the NDT with many people attending.
The conference held over 2 days (20, 21 Feb) was quite enriching and the speakers were interesting.I would have like more feed back on actual guiding issues as this was not touched at all other than an excellent presentation by Mr joe Samuels CEO of SAQA and the changing educational landscape for tourist guides.

Both courses will be held at the following venue
Gauteng Tourism Authority (GTA)

Fare Paying Passenger Liability
Attached is an article that have appeared in the IOL weekend newspapers.
The essence of the article is that certain insurers has dropped passenger liability from their covers they offer and some not. The conventional big 3, Santam, M&F and Zurich did not, where Hollard and Telesure did.
A well attended meeting in Parys on Friday 13 September saw our Association formally established, with the acceptance of the Constitution and its signing by founding members. Thanks were expressed to the ad hoc steering committee – especially Jan Fourie, Christo Meyer and Julius Moloi – for their work in bringing interest groups together and writing the Constitution.
We don't all agree with the same politics but this was a great man that did so much for South Africa. My Isreali group and I witnessed this moving tribute to Mandela on Saturday. Getting into Vilikazi str afterwards was not an option. I was also "ambushed" and caught unaware by Radio 702 and a French TV crew who interviewed me on camera! I hope I made South Africa proud..

Please note that there will be a church service on 16 December in the Voortrekker Monument. The service will run from 07:00 to 11:30. Entrance to the service is free of charge but normal entrance fees will apply after 11:30. Seating is limited and you should arrive early if you would like to attend. After the sunlight has shone on the Cenotaph at 12:00 an ox wagon will be put together in the parking lot by members of the Centurion ATKV to celebrate the 175 Commemoration year.
Changes are planned for the God's Window view site. I noticed a poster at the site for some changes which would seem to be major!
Have a look and see what I mean http://www.sefsa.net/skywalk-project-gods-window/ ! A restaurant and visitor complex with an elevated glass cantilever walkway proposed that will take guests over the gorge with a drop of 600 meters beneath them. My only concern is the exact positioning of the project. I love the area and especially the wonderful array of plants and would hate to see wholesale excavations destroying the ambience and natural beauty of the place!
