we went on a bike tour in Soweto with Lebo bike tour. The 2 guys who took us there were really good. We experienced and we could smell what Soweto is like. You cannot say you have been to S.A. if you have not visited Soweto. The place where we were on holiday in Johannesburg was safe but did not... More

Really good tour to do - we did the four hour trip and although I knew a lot of the South African history, this was presented really well. The guide (Jazz) was great - fun and lively - good history but not too much and very careful to go at a pace that suited all. We went the day after... More

Fantastic bike ride and opportunity to see Soweto. Jazz was fantastic. We rode away with a much better understanding of Soweto, Nelson Mandela and and the history of South Africa.

We did the 4 hour bike tour. It sounds like a long time but it flew by quickly because there was so much to do. Our guide was Jazz. Very funny guy with a lot of enthusiasm. You could tell her loved his job. On a bike it was so much better than being in a car, or on a... More

The bike tour through Soweto (did 4hrs) is something everyone should go on, given the opportunity. There's no way to compare it to a bus tour, as on bike you're really right in between the houses and people, being able to meet and chat with them. We had an awesome and very fun, young guide who tought us a lot... More

Bicycle tours were unheard of until I experienced this tour which opened my eyes.This is not only for outside tourist but for locals too to have intimate knowledge about their own backyard. I would recommend it for young and old.

This tour was okay... when it actually took place. I was staying at the Brown Sugar in Johannesburg. I had arranged for my cycle tour including the hotel pickup through Intrepid/Urban Adventures. I was even given a confirmation email that I would be picked up at 8am. When it was 9:30am and I still hadn't been picked up or otherwise... More

This was our last day in Joburg after our organized tour left. We booked this and it was a great decision. The Company picked us up at our hotel (for an additional fee that was pretty reasonable) and brought us to their location and dropped us off afterwards. The tour lasted several hours and took us to various areas of... More

We are a family of four (we have two kids ages 9 and 11) who are touring Johannesburg during our trip to South Africa. We took the four hour Soweto tour which was amazing. Our tour guide (Jazz) was very informative, funny, and kept the tour entertaining. We cycled up and down hills, through very poor areas, past Nelson Mandela's... More

This was an in depth yet relaxed tour through the streets and back alleys of soweto. Our guide was a local so very knowledgeable and quite charming. The tour takes you through a lot of incredible sights and important historical locations. It's brilliant doing it on a bike to get an 'insiders' perspective. All round, well worth doing.
