Sky to sea cycle ride
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.

So glad I booked this.
Sieze the day.
I am so glad I booked and went on this trip. My guide arrived promptly, collected me and drove to the starting point. He provided me with the E-bike and gave me some time to get used to it.
We started the tour riding alongside the canal on the towpath. It was very different from the streets of Edinburgh. Calm and relaxing. We rode through a mix of environments around Edinburgh and Leith, my guide was knowledgeable and informative. The mix was great, from Arthur's Seat to Leith beach, alongside the canal, through parks and quieter streets, along old railroad routes.

For me, the E-bike was the right option, it made it an easy ride.

Surpassed expectations
I booked as a surprise activity for my husband's 40th birthday and we both had a brilliant day out that was the highlight of our trip.
The bikes were lovely, the route was good and varied and included many interesting points and views.
We were picked up with a very warm welcome and Johann kindly let me post a balloon to him before hand. Johann was a brilliant host who was happy to answer all my questions about Edinburgh culture!
Thanks very much :-)

Fantastic!
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.

Great day out
We did the Edinburgh "Sky to Sea" E-bike tour today. It was a great day out and we visited many parts of Edinburgh that I had never actually seen before, despite spending my university years here, winding through miles and miles of cycle paths led by our superb tour guide Johann. This is definitely the bike tour company to choose and their many 5 star ratings are well deserved.

Excellent Bike Tour with the Tartan Bicycle Company
Sep 2020 • Couples
Everything about this tour was perfect. Picked up punctually from our hotel and taken to the start area for the tour. Johann was the perfect guide and his love and knowledge of cycling was clear to see. We visited parts of Edinburgh we had never seen and would never have found on our own, all with a commentary and explanation of the history of our surroundings. If you are thinking if doing a cycle tour whilst in the area, don't bother looking at other companies. The Tartan Bicycle Company is by far the best - and we have tried others! Thank you Johann for a lovely tour on great, well maintained bikes. We'll definitely be back for another one of your tours on our next trip.

Sky to Sea by E-bike
We had a most enjoyable tour , starting in Portobello as our rendezvous point with Johann- then we followed our leader along cycle paths and brief linkups on side roads for 31 km. The E bikes made it all very simple and the ‘turbo charged’ ascent of Arthur’s seat was a highlight. Johann gave interesting historical insights at several brief stopping points. Thoroughly enjoyable trip and look forward to another cycle adventure on next visit to Scotland.

A tour to remember
Aug 2020
I had a solo tour with Johann and though I hadn't ridden a bike for over 20 years The pace of the tour really helped me to experience an excellent morning of cycling. Though I have been visiting Edinburgh for most of my life Johann had taken me to areas of Edinburgh and Leith that I hadn't explored before, giving me a great experience. For me, this was a great history tour and a fantastic way to explore the sights of Edinburgh, Portabello and Leith. This tour is definitely worthwhile and a pleasant way to spend a morning.

Great way to see the city
Aug 2020
My wife and I were fortunate enough to have a private trip (Sky to Sea tour), as there were no other bookings that morning (no doubt something to do with the fairly miserable weather!). Johann was a very friendly and informative guide and took us through parts of Edinburgh we would not have otherwise seen. It was a great way to see the city, including a great view from Arthur's seat (the weather had cleared by then, luckily!). The route is almost all on paths and parks, so is perfectly safe. As such, it does not go through the city centre (you won't go down the Royal Mile for example), but it is all the better for it - you can see those bits on foot later. A good tour and thoroughly recommended.

I absolutely loved this tour!
Jul 2020
I had a solo tour with Johann; it was amazing and the highlight of my trip to Edinburgh. We cycled along the canal, through beautiful lush parks, up and around Arthur's Seat ...very pleased i chose the E-Bike! Along tree-lined railway cycle trails to the beach and the port then back toward the city to New Town. Johann was friendly, easy going and knowledgeable about the history and landmarks we visited and you can just see how much he loves his job! I thoroughly recommend taking this tour.
