Istanbul: Two Sides of The City Half-Day Bike Tour

1. Istanbul: Two Sides of The City Half-Day Bike Tour

Meet your tour guide in the historical neighborhood of Balat, in the European side of the city. Choose your bike for the day then board the public boat to Uskudar. From the boat, admire views of the city skyline and take photos of Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Maiden Tower, Süleymaniye Mosque, Bosphorus Bridge, and more. Arrive in Uskudar, which is on the Asian side of the city, and admire the cultural influences that surround you. Hop on your bike and pedal to Fenerbahce Park, stopping along the way to take in the sights and listen to your guide share information about the area’s history and culture. Once you’ve worked up a sweat from the bike ride, enjoy a refreshing cup of Turkish tea or coffee at a local cafe and admire the view of Princes’ Islands while you relax. Jump back on your bike and pedal to Kadıköy Pier for a boat ride to Karakoy. Next, cross over the Golden Horn Bay via the Metro Bridge then head back towards the tour’s meeting point in Balat. Tours usually finish around 1PM, depending on the group’s cycling tempo. Afterwards, spend the day exploring the vibrant streets of Balat at your own leisure, and enjoy some fresh, local cuisine from one of the many street-side food vendors.

Once you have seen the main Istanbul attractions, I can't imagine a better complementary experience, and a better way to see more of Istanbul - both the older European side, and the newer vibrant Asian side - than this 5h biking tour. Organization was smooth, the ride was safe and scenic, punctuated by ferryboat rides and stops at points of interest and coffee places. Our guide, Cem, was both very professional/knowledgeable, and very friendly. One can tell he has a talent for working with people, and a passion for his native Istanbul. He made the experience in our small group the highlight of our 5 days in Istanbul. Warmly recommended!
