Very well organized and informative bycicle trip in Soweto, it was such a great way to get to know a REAL South African neighbourhood. It worths as 10 South African history lesson or twice as a visit in Apartheid Museum. When going to the meeting point, just copy the address in Google Maps and don't worry, yes, thats an ordinary house with no signs of a bycicle tour. Actually I was very confused if am I on the right place, but yes, that it is. :)

This was an amazing tour of Soweto made special by our excellent guide "Rambo", who was very knowledgeable and cheerful. The tour was brilliant mix of informative, serious and fun and leaves nothing out. Bicycles are brand new and work well on the slight inclines of Soweto. Inspiring tour.

The park is a must see, we saw the feeding of the lions. Our guide from the tour company, Tumi was very friendly and knowledgeable.
