    What to Expect
    Get an up close look at Soweto daily life during this bicycle tour of this historic neighborhood. Follow a local guide past the Orlando Soccer Stadium, Orlando Towers and other highlights. You'll learn about the local schooling system and pay a visit to a hostel for mineworkers. Your guide will take you to the houses of Winnie and Nelson Mandela, as well as the home of Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu--some of the most famous names to come out of Soweto.

    I did the half day tour. Getting there: I used their taxi service however the guy was late and got lost and he ended up calling me an uber two hours after my pickup time. It was still cheaper than an uber but not the greatest start. The ride: It was a pretty easy going pace.
