    Would recommend the Sites and Stories tour. Joined Paul Turner and others on Monday evening for a very pleasant cycle around Edinburgh. Unless he's increased his prices since Monday it was £16 or £6 if you had your own bike. Did say to him he was charging too little but don't think he'll have increased them quite so soon.
