Had a personal tour with Richard, as I was the only tourist. Great bike tour around Edinburgh, mostly on bike paths. Richard was a great guide - very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour, and will do another Wee Pedal tour.

This is an excellent cycling trip and we got to see parts of Edinburgh I didn’t know existed. Fantastic, knowledgeable and friendly guide. The starting point was very easy to get to using local transport and the bike was very comfortable.
