Take 2 Tours, was founded in 1998 by Wayne Milne, to serve clients with a desire to see the best of South Africa PRIVATELY. The name of the company originated from the fact that when we started operating, we could only transport 2 people at a time, because we had only one Mazda 323 sedan.
With a little help from our friends, and even more help from the bank, we have grown to become a network of like-minded people across South Africa and Zimbabwe, who market themselves jointly for the benefit of the total tourist experience. We now have agents and partners in Johannesburg, Durban and Victoria Falls.
Wayne Milne – Managing Director
Wayne was born in Harare, Zimbabwe and has lived in 5 countries before deciding (finally) to settle in South Africa. He holds a Higher National Diploma in Hotel Management and has 11 years of hotel and hotel-related experience to his name. He stumbled upon the idea to take up guiding on a professional basis after having difficulty in finding suitable employment in Cape Town, back in 1997. Wayne has been principle driver and guide (in Cape Town) for the company since it started.
His main focus, since founding the company, has been on attracting tourists who are interested in seeing the sights of Cape Town suggested by the guide books, but who also want the FLEXIBILITY of making changes to proposed routes based on their individual preferences. He also enjoys the challenges of working with small conference groups……..because their schedules change faster than Cape Town weather, and this sometimes makes the day EXTREMELY interesting!
To ENSURE that visitors to South Africa, leave with such happy memories, that they inadvertently become ambassadors for the Southern African region.
The other driver/guides that work alongside this team are not mentioned here but, they are selected using the following criteria:
