We did a half-day Bosphorus Cruise to the Black Sea which in my opinion was more than enough to fully experience this attraction. We opted for the afternoon cruise as it included lunch. The price is a bit steep at 45Euro/person but we feel we got our money's worth. Despite cheaper cruises being available - we were picked up and... More

I will chime in with the review done by another traveler (Laura87p May 27th) that the boat crew on our trip was helpful but the transportation arranged by Viator was unacceptable. We called several times to check on our confirmed pick up (for 4) at our hotel and were given numerous excuses for why they were being delayed. Then they... More

This tour was a lovely relaxed way to see Istanbul beyond the old city area. The tour guide provided lots of interesting information, we had plenty to time see things at each of the sites and the boat was very comfortable. I would highly recommend this experience with this group. The waffles at ortakoy were the best-be sure to treat... More

Today my partner and I did the Bosphorus and Black Sea half day cruise booked through Viator, they use this company (IBO) who are not great. This is somewhat a mixed review, because the people that looked after us on the boat -ALL of them- were nothing but helpful, friendly and wanted to make our tour as good as possible.... More

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

Really enjoyed the full day tour and the lunch was amazing! Guides very helpful and speak v good English. Stopped at few places ibcluding rumeli fortress, each stop about 1 hour to look around.Well worth the 79 euro! All entrance fees, lunch and soft drinks included.

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...
