What is the TGCSA?

What is the TGCSA, exactly?

The Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGCSA) is the only officially recognised quality assurance body for tourism products in South Africa. Simply put, when it comes to recognisable Hotel, B&B, Guest House, MESE (Meetings, Exhibitions and Special Events) Venues etc. grading, we really are the one and only – which makes our Stars the ‘real deal’. We have a team of 50 qualified TGCSA Grading Assessors who are 5 star people by nature. They cover 9 provinces as they carry out grading assessments and handle the grading scheme for South African Tourism, which we happen to be a proud business unit of.

Every year, over 6500 establishments are assessed. This keeps our Assessors extremely busy and the overall standard of South African tourism up there where it belongs. If you were to ask how we spend our time, we’d say we enjoy staying committed to maintaining high quality grading standards for everyone to be inspired by and enjoy.
