We went on a combined Soweto gospel & cycle tour about 2 weeks ago. We had a great day! Busi, her 2 guides Lerato & Tsepo, showed us a fantastic day. The gospel and church service was wonderful, and then the cycle tour was great fun. We saw Orlando Towers, Orlando stadium, Mandela's house, the Hector Pieterson memorial, the old... More

When we parked our car next to the Hector Pieterson museum, we were directly approached by Pule, our guide. Guess our skin color made it quite obvious what we came for. After a cup of coffee, we stepped on our bikes. We spoke with the mother of a South African celebrity, visited Pule's high school, ate a deep fried snack,... More

This was one of our best days of our visit to South Africa. Our guides, Pule and Lita were locals knowing everything about the area and most of the people too. We were taken to places we would never otherwise have seen and introduced to Pule's family too. The tour should have been four hours but we ended up taking... More

An amazing tour that went around Soweto for four hours. Everything that I had read and heard about Soweto was wrong - it is a bustling township that has a sense of community that would make most cities envious. As a guide Jazz was entertaining, informative and engaging - everything you would want from a tour guide. Cycling enabled you... More

My husband and I hired bikes from Cycle in Soweto for Critical Mass in Joburg last night. The guys arrived on time and were great fun, they treated us like old friends! It was so easy for us - pick up the bikes at the start line and drop them at the end. No fussing around. The guys rode the... More

The bike tour was really great. We saw Mandela's house, went to the local brewery, and road around the city. We got lunch in a non-touristy cafe and ate near a popular rode. It was really amazing learning all the history about Soweto and our guide answered all of our questions and took a lot of pictures of us! Great... More

Cycling in Soweto was an eye opening experience for our family with 2 girls of 12 and 10. We were received in a very welcoming way and first enjoyed a nice cup of coffee; our guide was a local person and quickly he introduced us to the local habits (I don't recall having said "Hi there" so often in 2.5...

Staff is really friendly and the guide was from Soweto which makes the tour even more interesting: we tasted local handmade beer and listened about Sowetan stories, we even sang! Do it!

So, I almost always do bike tours when I am in a new city, as I really enjoy a more grass roots visit and a chance to exercise. Why I chose this tour company over Soweto Bicycle Tours I can't remember but I regret it. I can't remember the tour guides name, but #1 he was more like a local... More

We had a marvellous day, cycling in Soweto with our kids, having fun, meeting people. The best way to discover Soweto for sure. One of the best day of our fabulous trip in South Africa.
