This is a great way to see the way many South Africans live - from those sharing community bathrooms to those with small gardens and no electric fences. The local guides clearly love their city and encourage you to interact with the locals - who were very friendly and welcoming. The cycling is very easy - probably less than 2km... More

We enjoyed our 4h cycle of Soweto from Lebo's. Got collected from our accommodation which was far out and driven to join the tour. Saw a real mix of things and felt perfectly safe the entire time. Bunny chow afterwards was a mixed bag, the veggie and sausage was very good but the meat ones were a bit gristly. We... More

A bike tour was such a good way to see Soweto. We saw Nelson Mandela's home, the Soweto brewery, and other cool things around the city. The tour guide was fabulous as well. I would suggest this to anyone who is thinking about traveling to South Africa.

I went for the 2 hour tour with two friends of mine and it was such a great experience that I want to go back and do the 4 hour tour with my wife. Our guides, Jazz and Lungile were both fascinating and exceptionally professional. The tour is a mix of history and current and I departed with a real... More

Lebo's bike tours is a fab way to see Soweto. We did the 4 hour tour, which started with a local lunch, before getting on our bikes. Tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We cycled through Soweto neighbourhoods stopping at sights such as Mandela's house and the very vibey Vilakazi street. There are more hills than you might expect, so... More

We did the 4 hour tour,the welcome was very warm started with a typical Soweto Lunch, hollowed out bread with the choice of sausage, chicken stew or vegetarian. The guide was very friendly , knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Our 14 year old son was a bit nervous about the tour but she made him feel at ease from... More

This was a great way to see Soweto. It let us get a real feeling for the area - seeing the way locals live in a hostel, learning more about the insanity of Apartheid, all while riding a bike with a very safe vibe. Just note that there are a few uphills... but it feels good to get a bit... More
