Chief Explorer Cassie has been with Explore Tours Perth for over a year and is amazing at juggling being a tour guide and working on the operation side in the office. We thought it high time to learn a little more about her:
Tell us a bit about yourself:
“I was born and bred in Perth, but my parents migrated here from South Africa. Before I was a chief explorer, I went to university here in Perth and studied Contemporary Arts. I then worked for Disney Cruise Lines in Florida as an entertainer on board. I loved that job because I got to travel the Caribbean and Mexico every day and do something I really enjoy, performing. After that, I worked as a travel agent then moved to Vancouver Canada on a Visa and worked at a dance academy.
In my spare time I love playing basketball, spending time with my friends & family and singing and dancing.”
Where is your favourite holiday destination and why?
“My favourite destination was San Francisco. I loved the hustle and bustle of the city but also being right near the water. The city had plenty of history and fantastic food. Also the architecture of some of the beautiful houses was incredible.”
What Is Your favourite Explore Tours Perth Tour?
“My favourite tour is Penguin Island & Caversham Wildlife Park. I love seeing all the animals and getting the ferry across the Shoalwater marine park. The look on the guests’ faces if they get a chance to see a dolphin is always worth it! Then eating a great lunch at Pengos, visiting Caversham wildlife park and ending the day with delicious chocolate from the chocolate factory.”
Why do you love being a tour guide with Explore Tours Perth?
“I love showcasing what WA has to offer, allowing people to see first hand, the country I was lucky enough to be born and raised in. Seeing the guests faces when they experience new things is amazing as well as being able to educate them.”
Thanks Cassie – we love having you on the team!
