Having done a Bosphorus Cruise on a previous visit to Instanbul, I decided to do something different this time. I was therefore sold on IBO's Bosphorus with swimming in the Black Sea Cruise. On the day we were picked up from the hotel around 12:30 and then spent the next hour and a half driving around Instanbul picking up others... More

What a great thing to do in Istanubul. We got picked up on time in a nice van, then got taken on basically a tour of the city whilst we picked up other people on our tour group. We then got taken straight to the boat and were served an amazing lunch and refreshments, fruit etc. The food was great!!!... More

My husband and I did the half day tour with IBO which was recommended by our hotel. It was much more expensive than the ones you can book at the pier, but we were told that it was a smaller boat of 15 people....however it was not. There was probably 50 people, which was okay, but not our expectation. Overall... More

My husband and I booked this as many people told us a cruise on the Bophorous was a must. This tour is great value for money, including entrance fees, hotel pick up/drop off and generous amounts of food (morning tea, lunch, fruit and drinks). Our tour guide Aslan was friendly and very knowledgable. We didn't bring our swimwear as we... More

This was to be the highlight of our silver wedding trip to Istanbbul. We had booked it before we left, and was to be a brilliant full day on the Bosphorus, up to the Black Sea. We were so much looking forward to it. They phoned our hotel the night before it was due to take place, and said it... More

This cruise was a highlight of our trip to Istanbul! Aslan, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about Turkish history. He was a treasure trove of information. It was a bit cool on the day we went, so we were unable to swim in the Black Sea (even though our group would have gone in!) The food was good, and... More

We booked the full day cruise - paid €65 each for cash - possibly could have got it a little cheaper. Everything went as promised. Guide was good - enough information without being boring. Food served was fine - there was no choice but there was plenty and it tasted fine. It was what I would expect from such a... More

We couldn't make it! Ibrahim took so many days to answer my emails. Once we were in Istanbul, the same...he finally answer my emails the day before late in the night and he pretended us to meet him at the port instead of the promises they make of picking us up. So, we couldn't make the cruise and there was... More

It is well worth taking a boat trip on the Bosphorous River but think twice before going with IBO tours! Staff at the hotel we were staying in recommended this company so we decided to do the half day, afternoon cruise with lunch included, to the black sea. The cost of the trip was 45 Euros per person and was... More
