Le Tour - Edinburgh Ltd

Cycling Tour

24 Alnwickhill Gardens, Edinburgh, Lothians, EH16 6NF

    Le Tour is a service that offers you the perfect way to see the beautiful city of Edinburgh - by bike

    Scotland's capital has a well designed network of off-road cycle paths that allows access to many of the historic buildings and landmarks within 5 kilometres of the centre. Most visitors are unaware of this and do not have this chance to see all that the city has to offer. We want you to have great memories of your visit to Edinburgh and to know that you have seen as much as possible during your stay, so why not let us help you see the best of Edinburgh with either our bike hire or bike tour services.

    If you simply want to hire a bike and explore for yourself, we can deliver our Specialized Hardrock Suntour mountain bikes with all the necessary accessories directly to your accommodation. However, if you prefer to have a guided historical cycle ride around both famous landmarks and some of the city's best kept secrets, then join one of our tours. Should you wish us to plan an itinerary to the sites you want to visit by bike, simply contact us using the web-site booking forms and we will plan a bespoke self-guided tour that follows cycle lanes wherever possible.

    The Lochs and Castles tour

    The tour takes two and a half hours and visits the following sites:

    The Innocent Tunnel, Craigmillar Castle, Duddingston Village, Dr Neil's Garden, The Sheep Heid Inn, Duddingston Loch, Holyrood Park, The Palace of Holyroodhouse, The Scottish Parliament and Our Dynamic Earth

    The route follows mainly off-road cycle paths throughout some of the most scenic areas of the city, and affords numerous opportunities for photographs. Not only do you have an historical commentary which describes the characters and stories behind the sites your will visit, but also a 20 minute break in the Sheep Heid Inn (the oldest pub in Scotland) or outdoors in Dr Neil's Garden if you prefer.

    Included in the price is the hire of the bicycle, quality lock, helmet, rucksack and rain cape, plus commentary in English from the tour guide.
