“take the long cruise it's well worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I loved the boat trip along the bosphorus passing lots of palaces and stopping at pretty fishing villages.

beware of the prices in some of the fish restaurants at the end of the trip, out bill included prices which differed from the menu and items which we hadn't ordered. but this was just a small gripe on an otherwise fantastic day

“Classic İstanbul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

There is no better way to see this timeless city than ferry. Watching the city go by, bridges pass over you and cargo ships cruise on by is an experience savored by visitors and locals alike. Tip: wake up early on a weekday and take the commuter ferry from Eminönü near the Galata Bridge. You won't have any commentary or Top 40 pop music, but you find yourself having tea with a nice İstanbullu on their way to work.

“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.
