About me

DANIEL SIDIS T / a Guide Me Cape Town Tours Your French and English Tour Guide. Hi my name is Daniel Sidis and I would like to tell you a little about myself. I was born in Kisangani (formally known as Stanleyville) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. My parents come from the Island of Rhodes Island in the Mediterranean and are from Spanish ancestry. After a few years my family moved to Lubumbashi (formerly known as Elisabethville) where I grew up until the age of 11. This was a province known as Katanga where brutal wars and conflicts have taken place. From these events my family decided to immigrate to Cape Town in South Africa where I have lived since 1967. I hold an Italian & South African passport and speak French, English and a smattering of an old dialect of Spanish. I started working in the fashion clothing industry while being a student, to pay for my way. I left South Africa and returned to Congo in 1980 for 4 years when I worked for import and export companies linked with Belgium and France. I have traveled extensively in Congo and explored the mouth of the Congo River. Back in South Africa I started a record & music retail business (vinyl records and Hi-Fi sales) called The Record Library. In the late 80s I switched to the textile industry getting involved in manufacturing of mainly cotton knitted fabrics. Seeing the potential in the tourism industry in the Cape, I decided to become a tourist guide in 1996. I have traveled in Namibia, Zambia, Congo DRC, Spain, Portugal, USA and Mexico. In 2005 I started a Guiding Touring service with a luxury vehicle for exclusive private tours under the name “Guide Me Cape Town”. My interests: I am deeply interested in the beauty of The Cape, The Wine Regions of the western Cape (one of my Passions), The Garden Route, The Cape West Coast and The Eastern Cape. On my tours, I love intertwining our amazing history with our present life. My life in Africa has led to a natural affection with our nature, sea life, plants, birds as well as our current affairs and politics in our young miraculous democracy. In many ways, I am your quintessential South African and in this way I am also sports crazy about football, rugby, cricket and golf. Another one of my passions is the The Wines and culinary delights of the Cape. I will show you cuisine from Cape Malay, African to Euro-African and some others in between as well. It's not just The Cape Of Good Hope that you will experience - it's the Cape Of Good Food. My philosophy is to build relationships with my guests culminating to friendship for a long time to come. I enjoy Cinema, theater as well as music and live performances and art events and I am a character model for film and TV advertising. I also am a collector of old Bakelite radios and vinyl records. I am an accredited guide by the department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism. WC 0444. I am qualified for the Western Cape as well as the Northern Cape, Eastern Cape. I am a member of the Cape Town Tour Guide Association. I have a certificate from the Cape Wine Academy in Stellenbosch. I am a subscriber and member of the National Geographic Society • I have a diploma in production management. I am qualified and hold a diploma in Estate Agency. ”Cheers” My BioSalut my name is Daniel Sidis and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself.
