ITINERARY

The valleys we cover for our day by day rides rely on the weather situations and your riding experience.

Many of our rides are in and around Sword Valley, Meskendir Valley, Red Valley, Rose Valley and Cavusin Valley – as those are the most lovely trails to trip and we will reach many far off places – far away from the people – with amazing vistas and extremely good views at some point of the whole ride.

We provide early day rides beginning around 10AM and additionally overdue afternoon or sundown rides. Please inform us what works excellent for your program on the email form and we will respond with availability.

We offer personal 1-hour or complete-day rides as well. Please email us indicating availability and pricing.

Early in the morning you will be picked up from your hotel by our luxury minivan and transferred to the port where your boat will leave from for your Bosphorus & Golden Horn Cruise.

Cruise on the Golden Horn

Golden Horn, an estuary formed by flooding of valleys of two rivers confluenting just northwest of Eyüp by Bosphorus in prehistorical times, had always been Istanbul’s primary harbour. In fact, it can be argued that Istanbul would never have existed in such a grand way if it weren’t for this superb harbour (and also the superb trading route through and across Bosphorus, by the way).

Cruise on the Bosphorus

Along the Bosphorus, the strait that lies between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea, and separating Europe and Asia, lies a number of neighborhoods each with a different character (possibly due to the fact that they all started as seperate fishing villages and some are still physically seperated from each other by lush woodlands), palaces of the late Ottoman period, and parks. This is quite easily one of the most scenic—yet largely overlooked by travellers—parts of Istanbul, which reaches its zenith during late spring (especially in early May), when the Judas trees, which are some sort of symbol of the Bosphorus and dotting the hills along the Bosphorus, are in full bloom of their deep-pink flowers that engulf both shores of the strait.

As the boat sails, you can admire the old Ottoman wooden houses, Ottoman palaces, bridges, and medieval castles. Our magical journey which covers both European and Asian shores by our private boat will let you see the marvelous monuments and districts.

Rumeli Fortress (from the sea)

The biggest fortification of Istanbul can be seen clearly during our Bosphorus Cruise.

Our cruise concludes in Eminönü district where you can plan a visit to Spice Bazaar afterwards.

We may also drop you off back to your hotel as an alternative.

You may check out “XL Bosphorus and Black Sea Cruise” for the afternoon cruise.

We offer personal 1-hour or complete-day rides as well. Please email us indicating availability and pricing.
