This is a cycle tour you won't find anywhere else. I shall take you where other tourists will not know about and have no need to use vehicles as we start right on the cycle path making us a low impact business. There are other cycle tours in Edinburgh, but as I take small groups, you will be able to go at your own pace, ask as many questions as you like and take numerous photos without pressure of being rushed. This tour requires you to be able to cycle for a maximum distance of 20 miles with regular stops and at a slow -steady pace. This tour is not suitable for under 12 years. From Craigmillar Caste, to the stunning Dean Village, Leith and Portobello, you will be cycling through all the 'must-see' parts of Edinburgh that are off the tourist trail. E-bikes can be hired at an additional cost of £15pp cash on the day. Please let me know if you would like this option. (If you think you would prefer a shorter tour, please check out our 'cycle tour to the coast' which is 12 miles, 3 hours)
