Discover the best of Soweto as you cycle past some of the most popular local landmarks! Visit the Apartheid Museum, ride past Nelson Mandela's former home, and indulge in a traditional lunch.
Your guided tour begins at Johannesburg's Carlton Center, where you'll get to climb up to the 50th floor to take in superb panoramic views of the city. Next, you'll board a bus and enjoy a tour of the city's most popular sites, and also stop at the Apartheid Museum, where you'll learn interesting facts about South Africa's fascinating history.
You'll arrive in Soweto just in time for lunch and enjoy a feast of local specialties at a buzzing restaurant. Following lunch, you'll hop on a bike and soak up various aspects of the people's daily life as you explore the streets. You'll find that Soweto is a very interesting region, its people speaking all the 11 official languages of South Africa. Highlights on this tour include a former migrant workers' hostel for men, Meadowlands, and the memorial site of Hector Pieterson.
