Jaime did an excellent job in giving the historical details of the city. He is bubbly and high energy. I would recommend this for an experienced bike rider. There are no bike paths so will ride on street at times and a lot of cars in area. I loved seeing the city on bike bc you get a great view in short time to then allow you to explore the areas you liked the most. Also provided us good communication in booking and flexibility due to the rain. Will do again!

We booked a private tour with guide Tavo. Beforehand, he asked us what we expected from the tour, so that he could tailor the tour to our wishes. We learned a bit about history that he knew a lot about, but we also got a good idea of how the different neighborhoods work. We have visited different neighborhoods and it is a lot of fun to cycle around in this bustling city! Traffic is busy, but apart from some extra mopeds and motorcycles, cycling is not very different than in Amsterdam ;)

It was very good, there were many people inside the wall that had to be avoided, some roads with cars to cross but for us it was the only way to get to know almost the entire old city with our 12 and 14 year old daughters because walking is terrible long ago hot, narrow streets typical of old town. It was very nice to choose the bike option.
