We had a great time on the tour - enjoying Peters knowledge and experience. We upgraded to the electric bikes a must for the hilly terrain in and around the city which took us to places we wouldn’t have found otherwise.

Peter was a great guide showing us lots, we managed to have a tour with just us and Peter, a very nice ride. Be aware, Peter has an electric bike and will be fast, but he'll wait up haha

Amazing experience around in the historic parts of Edinburgh. The guide is friendly and calm and makes all the journey a real pleasure.

The is a unique experience, discovering areas of Edinburgh we would have missed had we not booked this tour

Peter is a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. Tour could not have been better
