“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Great experience to cycle in Alexandra. Interesting to see how the people live here. They are so happy with everything they have. They don't need expensive stuff, they are happy with what they have. Conditions are not as bad as in slums in India, but it can still be shocking for people who didn't expect this poverty.

“Thanks Jeff for an exciting and interesting tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We appriciate very much that we had the opportunity to bike around in Alex together with You! Its one of highlights on our journey in South Africa. We felt that we came the people living in Alex very close in a natural way. The passionate way you explained life in a township will stay with us for long time.
Its good to wear gym shoes and be prepared for a warm tour and sunshine. Bring camera and a bottle of water.
Keep on biking!

“By far the best thing to do in Johannesburg!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

This is something you really cant miss out on if you visit Johannesburg!
The tour guide Jeff is very inspiring and he works with a professional young team, most of them born and raised in Alexandra.
If you want to see the real life of a township and you want to interact with the people living there this is the tour you should do.
Jeff teaches you some words in Zulu and then he takes you to the local Shebeen, Mandelas first house in Johannesburg and the women hostel.
I have been on the tour several times now (I live in Joburg for a yesr) and I have never felt unsecure. There is possibilities for safe parking and Jeff can come and meet you at the Gautrain station.
This is so close to Sandton so if you stay there it is a really good opportunity to understand a little bit more about South Africas history and get to now we warm and open people from here.

“Mulaudzi Alex Tour & Jeff the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Went on a tour this afternoon with Jeff from Mulaudzi Alexandra Tours - thoroughly enjoyed the experience although you see alot of povery most people were smiling and friendly. All the children were happy and saying hello and "sharp sharp" - which I think means hello. Jeff is a homegrown Alex boy who knows all the ins and out of the area and well done to him as he started the tour himself and now employs 4-5 people. Good Luck to Jeff in the future.

“Don't miss this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

This is a fantastic experience for so many reasons. The tour guide Jeff is extremely inspiring and passionate. Everywhere you go you are met by big warm South African smiles and curious and playful children. This tour will definitely leave you with a better understanding of Johannesburg, a more positive outlook and memories for life in a way the glitz of Gold Reef or Sun Cit could never do!
