What a great way to experience Soweto! Traveling with a family of 5, we did the 2 hour bike tour of Soweto. Everyone was extremely friendly - with kids high fiving us as we rode our bikes. We had numerous stops along the way where the local guide would provide information. We got to sample a local brew and dishes,... More

Good tour with knowledgeable local guide who was very informative about life in Soweto now and in the past. Shame the tour doesn't include time to go into Nelson Mandela's house. However, a must to do in Jo'Burg. Very manageable.

As a family of 4 (2 adults, 1 16-yr old and 1 13-yr old), we took the 4-hour bike tour. It was amazing in every way. The guides were informative, friendly, and perfectly responsive to the group. The biking was very manageable for all of us; it was a great way to get around. We would recommend this as an... More

Don't be fooled, this is the only authentic way to see Soweto. We scheduled ours for the day we arrived in Jozi (from New York!) thinking we could use the exercise after such a long flight. You don't have to be Lance Armstrong, as the cycling is very easy going. You'll see Mandela's and Tutu's houses, as well as the... More

My students and I loved our bike tour. Thando was a delightul guide, and a great meal was included, too. There's no better way to be immersed in Soweto, and truly feel like part of the community. I will definitely bring students back for this experience. A visit to a shebeen was unforgettable! And we ended with the Hektor Pietersen... More

We (family of four) were really enjoying this bicycle tour. we arranged with the organizer a pickup at our hotel and everything worked out fine. We really felt safe the whole time and the guide gave us good insights into the local every day life.
