Despite paying and getting a confirmation for this tour and emailing urban adventures to ensure they collected from my hotel, I was not picked up. After waiting an hour and a half in the hotel lobby, I called the emergency number to ask when I would be collected. I was informed I was not on his list for the day... More

The guide was lacking in interesting information or amusing anecdotes, without this there wasn't much that made the places visited on the Jozi by Foot tour worthwhile. Tour was listed as 5 hours but actually lasted less than three hours from pick up to drop off. Good points was that it was relatively cheap to do as a solo traveller... More

I loved this tour! It was extraordinary. Why? Because our (there was one other woman) guide Goodnight really got us into the mix. These are my favorite tours--the kind that let you experience a place up close. For those who may be deterred, I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable. On the other hand, I know I would not have ventured... More

This tour included an observation tower, a museum, and the World of Beer. It was supposed to have included the market, but it was closed for renovation. It would have been nice to have been told that at booking, as I would have probably chosen the Soweto tour, had I known. A portion of the tour takes place in a... More

Our guide was only be capable of being our driver, not a guide. In the end, we changed the tour to suit us, but I would not recommend the Jozi By Foot tour to others Our gide arrived at our hotel at 8:55 which was great and asked for me at the reception desk. The room was not registered under... More

At 8am right as we were being picked up we were kindly informed that the bike portion of the tour will not be till 4pm. This was a surprise since the company advertises itself as a bike tour. How did we get picked up for a bike tour at 8am only to get on a bike 8 hours later?! What... More

We enjoyed this tour but it would have been made better if we had been able to go into the Mandela House. Our cycle part of this tour had been booked for 3.00pm (which we found out on the day) - only problem is that they cannot guarantee the time...due to previous tours etc running late ... and we had...

What a fantastic trip. I loved every minute of my Cycle Soweto Urban adventure. It was a very interesting way to cover alot of ground in an amazing part of the country. The people were so friendly, the kids all came out to wave and give high fives. Our guide was just amazing, singing and ensuring everyone was safe and... More
