I was Traveling with my husband while he conducted business . I was looking for an "active" sightseeing tour while staying outside Jo-berg in Alberton. This was the perfect tour for me. I choose the 4 hour. Soweto is bigger than I realized (home to millions of people!) this tour covered the highlights that the bus tours take you to;... More

Thank you for the great experience and the stories told during the tour. And now you can include Hard Rock Café as a place to visit! Br Thomas

We were there on a company teambuilding event, and had an amazing time. Very knowledgeable guides and great experience, tipped off with amazing food in a great setting, what more could we ask for? Definitely going back with friends. I'd only recommend that they stock Joburg Beer in the bar, to add to local flavour.

What a great day! This tour is not just for foreigners. We live in Johannesburg and took our young children along for the tour. We arrived a couple of minutes late, and then had to sort out the trailers and tandems. My 3-year old son was a little overwhelmed at first, and it meant we left after the rest of... More

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.
