See Istanbul's Golden Horn and explore its historic peninsula by bike, boat, and cable car. Take in the best views of the city and many of its iconic monuments on a full-day guided tour. Bike on a route that runs along the world’s greatest natural harbor.
What to Expect
The perfect way to see the major attractions of Istanbul’s historic peninsula is on a combined bike, boat, and cable car tour. You’ll take in the sights, both on and off shore, on this 7-hour excursion.
Historic Istanbul is situated on a peninsula flanked by water on 3 sides: the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus, and the Golden Horn. It has been the capital of 3 great empires: the Roman, the Byzantine, and the Ottoman.
For more than 1,600 years over 120 emperors and sultans ruled the world from Istanbul. No other city in the world can claim such a distinction!
The bike route is a moderate one, running along the world’s greatest natural harbor. Take in some of the city's most historical and cultural attractions, as well as some of the best views of the Golden Horn from Pierre Loti Hill.
The final part of the ride takes you to the Sutlice, Balat, and Kasimpasa districts, the naval yard, marinas, and more, until you return to the Eminonu district by ferry.
