About
Embark on a fun and unique tour experience as you explore the urban complex of Soweto on a bicycle. Get to experience the township like a local. Get a glimpse of Hector Pietersen Museum, Mandela House and Tutu House. Start your cycling tour in Killarney, to learn how Soweto was created in 1904 and share the history of this Township. Continue to Mama Lilian Ngoyi's house, an anti-apartheid activist. Cycle to Hector Pietersen Museum where the Soweto uprising transpired which was one of the turning points of apartheid. This tour will get you closer to all the highlights of Soweto. See the Mandela House, where Nelson Mandela lived from 1946 to 1962. Then, pass by Tutu House on Vilakazi Street, where Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his family once resided. Talk about the Nobel Laureate's contribution to apartheid's downfall in South Africa. Give your feet a break by stopping for lunch. Taste South African sandwiches called kota before cycling back to the starting point.

Sipho was really knowledgeable about the history of his hometown. What really blew me away was the fact that I was able to break bread with him along with some natives after it was all said and done

This tour is an incredible way to learn about the history of Soweto while getting a really genuine feel of the vibe and culture in Soweto. This awesome experience was amplified by our super friendly and very knowledgeable tour guide “Rambo”. I could not recommend this tour enough it really is a must do!

fabulous day spent in Soweto
Sep 2020
Rambo was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the history of Soweto and SA. We had a fabulous time tasing the local cuisine as well as the welcoming Soweto community.

Definitely a tour i will be doing again with my kids to open up their minds and knowledge of the country that they live in. A must do for anyone living in SA.
