Great experience, we covered so many places and things I otherwise wouldn’t have seen on my trip. Super fun small group experience and even though I went by myself everyone was very friendly and we all had a great time as a group. I would say, get the e-bike! I didn’t and the hills were at times quite challenging and the rest of the group was able to zoom up and then we’re left waiting for me lol. Overall super fun and I highly recommend!

Great way to get an overview of Edinburgh in one day

We were only in Edinburgh for one day on a cruise stop. This tour took most of the day and was amazing. Guide was so knowledgeable and made sure everyone had a great tour regardless of their biking ability. Our 13 year-old son bonded with the tour guide and thought he was the greatest. Very nice addition to our vacation when the teenagers don’t want to follow mom and dad any longer. If you are trying to do a castle tour with this excursion I would schedule the castle tour after 3 pm.

Even in flip flops

The airlines lost our luggage so all my wife had was flip flops for this biking journey instead of proper biking shoes (which were in the suitcase) but it didn’t matter; it wasn’t even noticeable to her she didn’t have the proper foot gear. The bikes were comfortable and we’d never ridden an e-bike before. The battery pack attached to each bike completely blended into the bike itself and never have we enjoyed trekking uphill like we did with the e-bike on this tour. The controls for the battery pack are on the handlebars and it’s effortlessly controlled; use it, don’t use - totally your choice in the moment. Incredibly user friendly. We saw so much by riding through town and against the coastline. The UK’s queen was at her Edinburgh palace and I’m pretty sure she was checking us out as we rode by. ;) This was a great way to spend half the day. If you’re not at least somewhat active, don’t do this. If you’re active, this is an outstanding way to spend a few hours. Loved every minute!

Great way to see different parts of the city and to get some exercise. Johan was a great tour guide in keeping everyone together and showing the sights. Would suggest getting an e-bike. There is not a lot of hills, however there are two big ones on the route.

One of the best tours ever and we travel A LOT!! I wish Johann was able to lead all of our tours. He was quick to respond to inquiries before the trip, prompt and showed us a fun time! The bikes were great, the scenery was amazing, and the commentary informative. We were able to see historic sites in the city, the green hills and city from Arthur’s Seat and the beautiful shoreline. Thank you Johann from this unforgettable adventure. My family cannot stop thanking me for booking it on our trip to Edinburgh.

I couldn’t recommend this tour more highly. We were able to see and learn so much about Edinburgh in such a beautiful and relaxing way. It was nice to get away from a lot of the cliche tourist stuff, and get a feel for authentic Edinburgh. Our guide was so kind, encouraging, and just pleasant to be around! 10/10 recommend.

Johann was a great guide. He took us around a well planned route to see parts of Edinburgh that would be difficult for you to find on your own. If you want some exercise while touring some off tourist locations I would recommend this tour.

Tartan Bicycle Co. and Johann provide an exceptional tour around Edinburgh. The E-bikes were great and allowed us (slightly) older folks to navigate the trip easily. There is so much to see in Edinburgh beyond the Royal Mile and the city centre. Phenomenal value and time well spent. Johann related lots of local lore and maintained a smooth, easy going pace.

Amazing experience

This was the perfect way to explore Edinburgh. Hotel pick-ups and drop-offs were on-time. Johann was an excellent guide, friendly, very knowledgeable with the right level of detail with the history of the city. It was a very pleasant ride with many stops. We were small group of people. The bikes are easy to ride, comfortable, great for everyone and perfectly suited to the variety of the paths and roads. The route was nice and easy to ride, mostly on cycle paths and very little on roads. Being on the bike meant we could get to places not reachable by a tour bus, which means we saw many sights we wouldn't have been able to find on our own. I have never ridden an e-bike previously but it was a great experience. This is a unique experience that shouldn't be missed! Will definitely return for a future tour! Highly recommended everyone x

Awesome way to explore Edinburgh, will give you a totally different perspective

This tour is a different experience, you get to explore the city of Edinburgh and mostly the outskirts via the defined cycle routes. Tour being a guided one helps you further with understanding history of the places you will visit and how things have evolved over time to tea h a point as you see right now

This tour made our city break in Edinburgh

Five stars for this tour. This tour took us along the canal paths, parks, back streets, and Edinburgh's cycle paths. We took the e-bike option, which made the climb near Arthur’s Seat a breeze. This tour is a great way to see the highs and lows of Edinburgh. The bikes are in perfect condition, and Johann is friendly and knowledgeable. This tour made our city break in Edinburgh, and we will contact Johann to take one of the other tours if we return to the city.
