I’d like to show you my favorite cycling route in Kadıköy where you would also have the opportunity to view local life.
If you like cycling near the water your will love it. It is also the safest bike route in Istanbul. As we will cycle you will have the opportunity to see the amazing sunset view at the end of our route. We will meet in a historical neighborhood of Kadıköy. It is very easy to reach Kadıköy by ferry or metro.If you are staying in Galata, Beyoğlu, Sultanahmet, Taksim, Karaköy.

Where you'll be

In this route you will have possibility of seeing Asian side as a local people do. If you like cycling near to the water it is the best route for you. We will start historical neighbourhood of Kadıköy. Until we reach bike way you will have the chance to see old apartments and local shops. First ten minutes of the route will be in the road. As I'm using this way since 10 years, so I know the least busy and the most interesting streets to take.

Interesting experience. Most of the time we bike alongside the sea coast with picturesque views and beautiful sunset. Başak is very friendly and helpful, I feel like it was a meeting with my friend. for me the trip was not physically easy, I was tired after 2,5 hours on bike, but very happy.

Basak was simply amazing! My 3 other friends and I had a BLAST exploring the Asian side of Istanbul with her. She was professional, knowledgeable, and extremely friendly! We caught a gorgeous sunset towards the end of the tour. At the end of the trip, my friends were SO eager to follow her on social media-- they couldn't stop talking about how nice she was! You cannot afford to miss this experience!!!

This was such a FUN experience in a very UNIQUE and local part of town! I’ve been in Istanbul for a Little over a month now been on a few great tours, and seen much of the touristy places, but wanted to experience a different part of the city. Basak’s nighttime bike ride was the perfect answer! The area where we met up was filled with local artisans, coffee shops, and restaurants. And because we were on bikes we got to cover a lot of ground and see the variation of lifestyles throughout multiple districts. Basak was a GREAT communicator both through text and in person. Her energy was bright and warm. Her bikes were REALLY comfy, and great for getting up a couple steep hills. She did a GREAT job navigating through streets, and telling us about the local scene here, and stopping at some hugely picturesque moments in the city. This is a SUPER fun and unique way to see a more local side of Istanbul!

Je recommande vraiment ce tour d’Istanbul en Turquie. J’ai rarement rencontré une personne aussi investi dans son activité, nous voulions découvrir des endroits bien précis elle a été attentive à nos attentes. Hyper bienveillante ! Nous nous sommes senti en sécurité avec Basak, malgré qu’Istanbul ne soit pas assez habilité pour le vélo. Nous envisagions d’habiter à Istanbul , Basak nous a donc fait découvrir des quartiers qui correspondaient à nos critères. Nous avons vu Istanbul d’un autre angle, et à une autre échelle. J’ai l’habitude de faire ce genre d’expérience mais avec Basak c’est tout autre chose ! Foncé!!!!
