Experience Hout Bay Culinary Tour Video

At the end of 2016 the Hout Bay Partnership hosted a competition for Tourism micro-enterprises in Hout Bay Tourism. The initiative was an effort to tap into the huge opportunity for economic development and job creation identified in the Tourism sector in Hout Bay. The competition looked to cialis prix find businesses that had great potential as a Tourism product but needed assistance in taking the business to the next level. The Hout Bay Partnership partnered with a few key partners in order to make the experience for the winner of the competition one that was of significant benefit. The collaboration was between Open Africa, All Out Africa, Coffee Beans Routes, Nucleus Financial and the City of Cape Town. These partnerships were essential in looking at the businesses from where they were at the time of winning the competition; comprehensively assessing them, to determine what the businesses needed in order for them to grow and compete successfully in the current Tourism Market.

Two Tour-Guide businesses ended up as the winners of the competition and the journey that they have taken with the mentorship of representatives from Coffee Beans Routes, Open Africa and Nucleus has been remarkable. The Tour Guides were able to get their businesses formalised through streamlining the marketing and booking/payment processes and taken in a completely different direction. A direction that will see the tours become cultural food experiences that allow the guests to engage more intimately with the local environment and get a first-hand experience at being a local in Hout Bay. The Tours take the guests through Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg with each area providing unique food experiences that are connected to the cultural heritage and local tastes of those community’s.

The Hout Bay Partnership is very proud to have been able to create a video documenting the progress of the Tour Guide businesses that won the competition, with commentary from the key partners involved in the mentorship programme and its participants.
