“Great Experience”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

We did the half day Soweto Cycle Tour. It was brilliant. Riding a bike around the township is a great way to explore it. The guides were good and gave you a lot of interesting information. The people are friendly and the children love you being there. It is not dangerous in anyway and we felt very safe at all times.

The bikes are little old but you don't ride that far and there are plenty of stops along the route. We had some local beer and meat and one of the small 'bars'. We also bumped into Winnie Mandella.
When we returned to the backpacker hostel we were given a really tasty lunch and drink all included with the price. The transfers from there to are hotel were efficient and on time.

This is the best way to see Soweto and I would strongly recommend it. It was easily the best thing we did in Johannesburg.

“Explore Soweto by Bike”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

I joined this tour in June and must say I really loved it. Its a great way to explore Soweto apart from the usual bus tour. The bikes are in a good shape and the guides are excellent.They are all local Sowetans and know the area by heart. They share lots of information with you about the history and people and tell you how its like to live in Soweto. We also tasted some home made Soweto beer & food and had lunch in a local restaurant.
Its an active way to explore Soweto and absoulutely recommendable!
