Albert P.

Tokai, WC, South Africa

I am a registered private tourist guide for the Western Cape (South Africa) - (WC4682).

I was the first South African registered to guide in Russian, but that doesn't exclude me from doing your tour in English or Afrikaans (for the Dutch or Flemish).

I was born in Namibia (South West Africa) lived all over South Africa and fell in love with the Garden Route and know it like the back of my hand. I also traveled extensively through Russia and parts of the former Soviet Union. All of this comes out as part of my guiding.
My approach to guiding is not to lecture people and give them boring dates, but to make friends and to show my new found friends this amazing place I live in!!

If you are the type that wants the dates and the facts. . . I can give you what you want!

I can do bigger groups, but always prefer smaller groups where I can build relationships and make the experience more personal.

After a tour with me you will definitely agree that I am not your stereotypical tourist guide!!

A Recent Review of this guide

An incredible tour with history, perspective and personality. We ventured off for a wine tour and got so much more. Not only was Albert relatable to us, he connected with our 6 year old like a long lost uncle. He had a plan but allowed us to make choices along the way, just as a friend would when one is visiting. If we could give more stars we would - we found he was available for the last day of our trip and immediately booked him for another adventure. HIGHLY recommended!

Credentials

As registered Private Guide for the Western Cape, South Africa I was the vice chair person for the Cape Tourist Guides Association. I have been doing private tours in the Cape since 2008.
Before becoming a tourist guide I studied Missions with Operation Mobilization and worked with orphans in Russian (Siberia) for many years.
Initially I studied electronics and computers and ran my own business in this field, but soon realized I need to be working with people.

Restrictions

I am licensed to guide in English, Russian and Afrikaans for all of the Western Cape and the town of Port Elizabeth.
I have a professional driver permit and am allowed to drive if the tour has 10 or less people.
