About
Our 4 hour Sky to Sea bike tour takes us to the highest and lowest points of Edinburgh accessible by tarmac on a choice of manual or e-bike. From our very own volcano, Arthur's Seat, with its panoramic views across the city, to the golden sandy beaches and sea views at Portobello. We also pay a visit to the Port of Leith, with over 600 years of maritime history, and the Georgian New Town, a UNESCO world heritage site with grand streets and town houses. Transport to the start of the route is provided free of charge, in our custom bike bus. Your tour will end centrally, close to the Waverley Station.

It was a brilliant way to explore Edinburgh for the first time. Johann was a fantastic tour guide - very knowledgeable about the areas he takes you too and of course friendly. I would highly recommend this tour! :)

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.

Thank you so much Kevin, I'm humbled by your kind words. I'm so happy you enjoyed our bike tour. It was good to chat about Panang and Georgetown, such a great part of the world to visit. I hope you and Michelle enjoy the rest of your honeymoon, and all the best of everything for the future.

Johan is a friendly, easy going leader... The Edinburgh tour was fantastic!
I knew I wanted to do something active and also see the city while only in Edinburgh 2 nights. After researching the bike tours, I chose The Tartan Bicycle company because Johan got so much praise and well worth it. He knows the area, the history and was easy to hang with all day. Next time I come I'll hopefully do the lengthy one up in The Highlands.

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.

Such a lovely morning. Johann was so helpful and had lots of local knowledge. The bikes were good and the ride was less demanding than i expected, plus he stopped lots to look at views etc. Amazing experience- and Johann was such a gentleman he even stopped to mend a girls bike (who wasnt part of our group) on the way!

We booked this tour with Johann for 3/9/21. We were worried that we might struggle on the ebikes as our group of 4 were not very fit and hadn’t been on bikes in many years. Johann was great, very patient and encouraging. We all had a great day sightseeing and a quick cuppa. Sore bums the next day!
