A Recent Review of this tour

Toby was an absolute pleasure!! He is unbelievably knowledgeable about Edinburgh, St Andrews and all of the Fife coastline. The highlight of the trip was stopping for lunch in the small fishing village of Pittenweem! Five stars and two thumbs up for a safe and comfortable ride as well!!
