“Nice boat trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

It takes 1:30 h and worth every turkish lira ( 12 tl). The cruise takes you up to the sexond bridge that connect the 2 parts of Istanbul. You will see nice palaces and beautiful houses while enjoy the wonderful view.

“Breathtaking views of the European side and Asian side.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Loved it. Beautiful views on both sides of the strait which bridge connects two continents.Two or three hour boat trip for only $6.00 per person is a real deal for an unforgettable experience.

“Must do in Istanbul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Lovely 2.5 hour cruise on the Bosphorus. By far the most beautiful cruise I've been on. Snacks are available and there is plenty of seating.

“Boat ride was beautiful...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Took boat/dinner cruise with a technical society... worth the comfort (breezy) and the views... I think this is something to do your first time to Turkey and without kids... otherwise, wander by foot/taxi and see the site close up & personal.

“Take the turyol tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The turyol ferries, they're provided by the government and are much cheaper then other tours around for the same experience. They cost 12 TL per person and go past the Bosphorus bridge and you get clear views of both the European and Asian sides of Istanbul, don't be tricked into paying 20 TL or more for another tour!
