Excellent, a must do!

My family and I went for a 3 hour bike tour around Istanbul, the guide Samet was superb. He had an in depth knowledge of all the history behind the monuments and 3 hours just passed by fast. We had some stops at the most beautiful monuments which we would not have experienced as well as we did with Samet. If you are a biker, this is a must do tour. Also the person we booked the tour with Emre picked us up from the apartment and drove us to the starting point.
