We had a very nice tour in Masiphumelele. It was good to hear and learn how people live. Also for our children of 9 and 10 years old this was very informative. Tourguide Shwaai, who lives in the township himself, made this tour very special by showing us everything and by arranging a very nice lunch!

We went biking and hiking at the Cape Point, including visit to the penquins. It was a great day and a great experience. We had an excellent guide (Niels) who gave a lot of insights and was very observant in creating a good experience for us. Good bikes, plenty of wind in the back and a lot of downhill cruising...

it is very interesting to meet the township people and have a dialog with them, also to eat with them was very nice, it is a bit pricy so, and you are ask to give tips here and there on top of it, makes me wonder where the money goes to?

2 person individual biking tour to the Cape. Could not have been better - nice walks to the penguins, short walk along the cape coast and easy biking in the hot sun - short lunch break in a "perfect" place followed by a nice cruise down the coastal roads... Will for sure be back - the bikes were better than... More

Awol tours have a lot of options for bike tours. remember to book in advance and enjoy. We did the city bike tour and the guide was great showing us how safe is to ride a bike in the Cape Town. You will see the Waterfront, the Gardens behind the parliament, city centre, bookap and much more.

Zwai was a great guide. Our family of five did the township bike tour on Christmas Eve. We wanted to give our kids some perspective during our trip to South Africa. We were of two minds. Beforehand it seemed strange that we would be biking through to see how they live. In fact, I found it incredibly awkward and our... More
