Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul 34122 Turkey

"This beautiful strait, sometimes spelled Bosporus and sometimes Bosphorus, was so called from the earliest ages by the ancients; from the mythology of 10, the mistress of Jupiter, having passed over it in the shape of a cow. It resembles the Dardanelles, in length, breadth and current, and like it, is a narrow separation which divides Europe from Asia; but it has many features familiar to itself. Instead of being a solitary stream running between deserted shores, it is a body of water full of life and animation, winding its way through banks covered with palaces and villages, shaded with magnificent forest trees, presenting to the eye, at every mile, a new scene of crowded existence."

This tour is of high quality and we were very satisfied with it ! The crew was very professional and the tour includes a guy that is very attentive to clients. The boat is a nice yacht. The crew provided us with blankets as it was cold outside. Even in covid conditions the crew packed the food to take away after the tour and it was a nice set of appetizers and fresh fruits. We highly recommend this tour.

This was a great way to see some of the sights from the water and experience the sunset, and the guide gave us the highlights rather than overloading us with information. They were generous with the snacks. Overall, I thought it was good value for money

This was amazing!! You must go with this boat tour! I spent a long time researching them and this one lived up to the reviews!! We booked in less than 24 hours yet they still handled a special request for transportation to the boat. Erdal was so patient and accommodating. He made sure we had all the food and exactly the drinks we wanted. He even got us a sandwich! The tour guide was also excellent-- he knew when to speak and when to let us have relaxed times enjoying the views. He was a good storyteller and had great English. The boat was very nice and we enjoyed all the Turkish snacks. There was even fresh pomegranate juice. There were blankets in case we got cold. The views were incredible!!!! This tour gave me such a better understanding of the city of Istanbul and made me connect to the city. It is very breathtaking and we took so many great photos!
