We decided at 8.30pm on Friday that we wanted to cruise up the Bosphorus to the Black Sea the following day! I completed the online booking form on the Ibocruise website and received a confirmation email and a telephone call later that evening. We were collected from our hotel by minibus and taken to the boat. For the morning part... More

Went on the full day Bosphorus Strait and Black Sea Cruise. The morning was fantastic. We stopped at a local port and visited a really nice mosque, then stopped on the Asian side to visit a palace, then stopped again at the Rumeli Fortess which was brilliant. Lunch was fine, BBQ food made on board, but well cooked. Then we... More

This tour has some very good points but also some areas that could be better. Definitely good but not great. We signed up for this half day morning tour through our hotel. Great thing is that they collect you from your hotel in the morning so no need to make your own way to the dock. Downside is that we... More

We bought two trips from this organization. The first was a 2 days and one night trip to Cappadocia. This was a very enjoyable and amazing experience. This place was very historical and unique. Definintly worth going there. This tour consisted of an overnight stay in a cave hotel (Flinstones) and offered a North and South Tour of Cappdocia. They... More

We had booked a Dolmabahce and boat T7 tour through our hotel. We arrived at the boat at around 12.30pm after our dolmabahce visit. Information about the boat was very poor and no boat safety announcement were given. Toilets are outside at the rear of the craft. They smelt awful and as the top deck was closed our only outside...

My husband and I purchased the half day Bosphorus boat tour, cost 25 euros each. The tour rep. picks you up at your hotel beforehand. We stayed at the Tan Hotel, and were picked up at 0920; after picking up several other parties at their respective hotels,the actual tour started at 1210. Wished I'd taken a book. The tour itself...

Wasn't sure if this was going to be a good or bad experience. We were planning to meet my daughter, who studies in Istanbul, at the boat at a particular time based on what IBO had told us would be the disembarking time. IBO was half hour late picking us up and then had more people to pick up...we arrived... More

Lovely day, started on the Bosphorus with a relaxing cruise up & down the river with a stop at a Summer Hunting Palace midway. The cruise ended at the Spice Market then on the bus for a drive up to Pierreloti for a quick meal & cable car ride down to the bus again. We then followed the Old City... More

This was a highlight of our stay in Istanbul because it gave us a break from the busy city and the scenery was beautiful. But beware, like many others have mentioned, we did not get to go into the Black Sea or Poyrazkoy and were never given an explanation why. We sailed near the mouth of it. So that was... More
