Name Richard McCully
Studied Certificate III in Guiding
Faculty Travel and Tourism
Career Profile Setting up own wine tour business

After working in the IT industry for 15 years Richard fancied a career change. With his love of travel he decided to complete a guiding course externally with TAFE SA which could fit around his work and life commitments.

“As part of the course I was required to plan and then run a real tour. I took five people on a wine tour in the McLaren Vale. This was the moment I realised that guiding is what I really wanted to do.”

Studying and working simultaneously was a more difficult than he thought but found that the lecturers were incredibly supportive.

“Whenever I had a question I just sent them an email or gave them a call and they were there to help and offer advice.”

“Ultimately, I’ve always wanted to own my own business doing something I have a passion for and now I’m able to fulfil those dreams!”
