Western Cape Tours wins big at INDABA 2011
Western Cape Tours
Western Cape Tours, a tour operator that coordinates the most popular tours around the Cape, was named best operator at INDABA 2011’s Welcome Tourism Awards ceremony on Sunday May 8, 2011.
INDABA is Africa’s premier and most innovative networking event in the travel and tourism industry. Held over four days, this bustling trade show attracts more than 13 000 delegates each year.
The Welcome Tourism Awards recognise the outstanding work done by service providers in the tourism industry, particularly those who enhance visitor experience, inspire longer stays and turn guests into ambassadors for South Africa.
Western Cape Tours received the top award in the Best Operator category as well as in the sub-category for operators who have been trading for less than five years.
Apart from the prestige that the awards bring, the company also received a share in prizes valued at over R600 000 in exclusive marketing and promotional material.
This award represents another feather in the Mother City’s “tourism” cap after Cape Town was named TripAdvisor’s 2011 Travelers’ Choice top world destination earlier in the month.
