Full description
Saddle up and sample the rich diversity of Edinburgh’s landscapes on a small group, 3-hour bike tour of the city center, Holyrood Park and Portobello Promenade. Using picturesque cycle paths, you will reach iconic sites in the heart of the city and cycle a beautiful coastal path. Start by heading west from the meeting point, cycling along a designated path to the New Town area. After a gentle climb through residential streets, cross Princes Street, admiring views of Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street Gardens. Now, pedal down The Royal Mile, immersed in the history of the Old Town. Cycle towards Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament. The scenery changes as you enter Holyrood Park and pass Arthur’s Seat, formed by an extinct volcano more than 350 million years ago. The paths now follow the route of a disused railway line towards the coast. Finish with a spin along Portobello Promenade and back to Leith, to experience the dramatic and contrasting cityscape of Edinburgh. Only suitable for aged 14 and over.

Le centre ville, l'ancienne ville, la banlieue jusquau la plage. C'etait un super trajet. Notre guide était très sympa. Elle nous a expliqué pleins d'histoires Ecosse. On a bien découvert. C'etait un des meilleur moment dans notre voyage en Ecosse cette année. Je vous le conseille fortement. Un grand merci!! des bisous!

Still nice trip, after initial communication disorder

There was no guide at the meeting point on the day of appointment. Organization appeared to have received no booking from Getyourguide. Still arranged a guide for the next day, after which we did a nice and interesting bike tour. A lot of climbing and descending!
