Having been on several bike tours around Europe, this was disappointing in comparison. Whilst the route was as advertised - starting in the town and out through Holyrood and beyond - the guide offered sporadic information and the depth of knowledge was questionable. Several questions...More

We’ve had a very nice day and Peter is a very relaxed guide, who will show you many places in and around the city center which you’ll never find by yourself. We’ve had a very nice day!

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers

place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
