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

Lunch was really nice :). My friends and I chose not to swim we got off and relaxed with some ice cream... More

The full day trip is very nice it starts with a boring stop at some houses with nothing to see. The tour guide (aslan?) spoke a nice english and could tell alot about the stops and the history of the places. After that the stops improve with a nice stop at the hunting lodge of the sultans and an evan... More

We took the half day morning tour. There was maybe twenty of us on the boat. The boat was comfortable. The morning tea was industrial packet cakes. The guide was very informative when asked questions by individuals but as whole did not give much information over the PA on what we were seeing on the river. We visited Ortaköy first,... More

Our family had seen most of the popular tourist attractions in an earlier visit, so we decided to take a cruise up the Bosphorus to swim in the Black Sea. It was a pleasant journey with an excellent lunch and great service.
