What an awesome tour with Johann. He made it fun, very informative, easy going , helpful, gave us all water bottles to keep & a snack, we felt cared for and safe. The bikes are primo! We rode nice legit bikes. Could not believe how much we saw of Edinburgh in this tour, he knows routes even the locals prob don’t know. Book this tour!!! It was loads of fun. We did this our first day so we would get the lay of the city. Highly recommend. A few hills , but he allowed for some to walk the bike if necessary and they never felt bad about walking. The others waited for them and we took pics. Only our group of 4 plus another couple. Easy to keep up with him. Can’t say enough good about this tour.

Johann was a wonderful guide … despite a range of biking capabilities in our group, he worked hard to make each experience personal and the entire group engaged. The prior “5 star” reviews are accurate … varied and beautiful scenery, history, and fun conversation. The tour gave us a chance to experience so much of Edinburgh not visible from days and shops along the “Royal Mile”. Another plus … my wife and I hadn’t used an e-bike before, and they are simple to use, powerful on the hills or flats, and in excellent condition. Our tour was almost 6 hours, so do coordinate with Johann if you have other commitments to manage. Hope you are as lucky as we were with fair skies and sunshine!

We had an awesome day touring Edinburgh by bike with Johann. We saw so much of the city and surrounding areas that we otherwise wouldn’t have known to visit. Definitely recommend this tour for those looking to get some fresh air, stretch their legs a bit and explore!

We had a great time seeing the sights of the city from a different view point. Glad I knew that I was slightly unfit and went for the e-bike option! Johann was a great tour guide pointing things out, stopping for breaks and just general chatting about the area where we had stopped. Lots of photo opportunities to be had. We have learned lots of things about Edinburgh and he even gave us tips of good places to eat.

We took a guided e-bike tour with Tartan Bicycle Company and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Edinburgh. We were a party of 5 people who varied in age from 27 to 78. The two older folks in our party didn't have experience riding e-bikes and were a little nervous about it. Johanne was extremely patient and kind explaining how the bikes worked and reassuring them that we'd go at their pace. He took us on a lovely route that allowed us to see much more of Edinburgh than we had imagined. Johanne was a wealth of information about Edinburgh. The bonus was that he was genuinely good company and a very nice guy. Every one of us enjoyed the tour. I strongly recommend Tartan Bicycle Company

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.

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.

On our first morning in Edinburgh we managed to see so much thanks to Johann’s bike tour. We started in the city centre and took in Arthur’s Seat, Hollyrood Park, headed down to the beach at Portobello for a hot chocolate and the Port at Leith. The trip was not hard - we took the manual bikes - and only had to get off and push for a bit in the last hill. The ebikes looked like fun and would be good if you want a less strenuous experience. It was a glorious morning and the views were well worth the short climbs. Johann was very engaging and knowledgable too.

Wonderful!! Johann led a great tour, keeping us safe and well informed as we circled the great city of Edinburgh. We chose to rent eBikes, which proved to be a sound decision at several points along the way; namely Arthur's Seat and the return from the Leith at the end of the ride. Johann was knowledgeable and personable. Truly no better way to see the city!

This is such a great way to see the city. Johann is a really knowledgeable & interesting guide. The tour takes you out of the city centre to places you’d probably miss otherwise & you get great views of the city & beyond.
