Frankly, I am gatvol of being in retail, 20 years of it and I am now done. So have been scouting around and looking as other possibilities, and the one I like and more importantly, I feel I could be very good at, is becoming a tour operator. Nothing huge, just me and a 8 seater mini van - something like a Hyndai H1. I live a little outside Cape Town and an sure initially would be operating more as a "taxi", with the tour part taking a little longer to set up.
I have around a year and a 1/2 to plan and implement and am starting a tentative business plan/ checklist and would really like to hear from anybody in this sector. Things like licenses, type of vehicle, course I should do, and what market I should be aiming for. And of course, any pitfalls that I can expect!
