Excellent way of seeing Edinburgh with an expert!
Superb and Johan is exactly what you need when you book a cycle tour. I’ve been on cycle tours around cities all over the world. This guy is probably the best. Attentive, knowledgable, punctual. Excellent bikes etc etc. We also hired bikes out from Tartan a few days ago and top models. All in all I thoroughly recommend

Lovely way to see Edinburgh
Jul 2021 • Family
We thoroughly enjoyed our cycle tour of Edinburgh. Johann was good company and knowledgeable about the area and it's history. The bikes were well maintained and comfortable. We visited a variety of places. The route was well chosen with a good balance of hills and flat riding. Many thanks. Would certainly recommend.

Fantastic city tour with a twist
Amazing tour. I would highly recommend this tour and company! Johann was an amazing guide and the bikes were in excellent condition. We'd never tried electric bikes before but they were so much fun and a fabulous way to see the city.

Sky to sea cycle ride
A really fantastic cycling adventure for our family hosted by Johann. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and got to see the city from all different aspects, with so many interesting facts shared throughout our ride.
A great start to our short break away with us seeing parts of the city where we would never have ventured ourselves. Some great tips of some walks to do over the next few days too!
We would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to really see the city.

So glad I booked this.
Sieze the day.
I am so glad I booked and went on this trip. My guide arrived promptly, collected me and drove to the starting point. He provided me with the E-bike and gave me some time to get used to it.
We started the tour riding alongside the canal on the towpath. It was very different from the streets of Edinburgh. Calm and relaxing. We rode through a mix of environments around Edinburgh and Leith, my guide was knowledgeable and informative. The mix was great, from Arthur's Seat to Leith beach, alongside the canal, through parks and quieter streets, along old railroad routes.

For me, the E-bike was the right option, it made it an easy ride.

Surpassed expectations
I booked as a surprise activity for my husband's 40th birthday and we both had a brilliant day out that was the highlight of our trip.
The bikes were lovely, the route was good and varied and included many interesting points and views.
We were picked up with a very warm welcome and Johann kindly let me post a balloon to him before hand. Johann was a brilliant host who was happy to answer all my questions about Edinburgh culture!
Thanks very much :-)

Fantastic!
Thanks to Johann for a superb ride today, he was knowledgeable and passionate about his city and cycling. The bikes were superb and well maintained. We had the E Bikes and it made this approx 3 hour ride seem like a breeze, we highly recommend it even for the 'not so fit' cyclist as it was easy, even on the two big hills.
