This trip gave me a new perspective and appreciation for all that Johannesburg has to offer, and I really enjoyed exploring Soweto on a pushbike.

I loved. And I'm a terrible cyclist and the guides waited me and were very pacient. They showed us everything and talked about the most important events. Amazing experience.
