Wonderful tour! I was the only one taking part that day and it almost felt like a private tour as we had a lovely chat with the tour guide riding around the scenic areas of Edinburgh. My bike was easy to ride and even though I'm not very fit, the tour wasn't challenging. I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to have a fun activity and wants to go off the beaten path a bit.

It was a lovely, leisurely ride to the beach and it was good to be taken to a part of Edinburgh we hadn’t seen. Would highly recommend it for any level of cyclist. The bikes were easy to ride and the distance and effort required suitable for all levels. We went as a group of 4. The guide was patient and super friendly.
