Best bit....no loud disco music, just sit back and enjoy the view.
Glad to see the meeting point address has been updated on TA, so no more confusion for travellers.

It is a two hour trip. It was very confusing to finally locate the boat that will take us on this cruise.
The boat when it embarked was very crowded and the benches you sit on were very uncomfortable for a two hour trip.
Having said that the sights were amazing. I wish the narrator had a higher voice and slowed down in the explanation of each attraction we passed by.

This was one that we booked through Viator and it was only about £8 each. It was 2 hours and excellent value taking in quite a lot of the beautiful sights at night.
There was no commentary but they gave you a guide and map.
The only negative was that it was not a sunset cruise as it was already dark by then.

But well worth it

I paid 56 AED per person for this cruise and when I reached the mentioned location, to my surprise the actual price was around 17.5 Turkish Lari which is around 12 AED. The providers are charging way more than the local prices. Also, it's mentioned that tea and simit will be included which is not true. There was nothing complimentary and 5:45 evening cruise was also hop-on-hop-off during the whole trip.

We arranged this spur of the moment with a local ticket seller near the Blue Mosque. I was a little apprehensive about organising the tour this way but glad I did as the tour was excellent. We bartered for the tickets and got them half the original asking price (which actually was a good price as I had already investigated other options). The walk from the meeting point near the Blue Mosque to the actual boat was quite a way and was at a fast pace. The mad rush of everyone trying to get to the front of the queue to get a good seat was crazy however once on board it was much more relaxed. The cruise lasted 2 hours, information on sites was provided in English throughout and was very interesting. Snacks and drinks were also available. The sights were beautiful and seeing the city this way is definitely a must.

This cruise was amazing - offering excellent views of Istanbul from both the European and Asian side. I prefer the evening cruise as the city looks fantastic at night lighted up. The atmosphere on the boat was great with music and dancing. Snacks and drinks also available. It's one of the things you have to do when in Istanbul.

I’ve been on many of these evening boat cruises all over the world. If you want to relax and enjoy the views, this isn’t for you. The boat is organized with benches along the left and the right running the length of the boat. The guys tell you to get on the right side but because of the design you can’t take quality photos. Either you get good photos at the expense of the people behind you or you have the guy and or selling chai and snacks constantly going up and down the aisle. If you don’t mind random people standing up so they can get a good shot not caring if you want a photo and people selling and stopping by then this trip is for you. You get what you pay for. Do yourself a favor and spend more. I wish I did.

Disappointed. The tickets were not accepted for the cruise. Had to purchase tickets again privately. Better to purchase tickets there as it’s cheaper than that which I paid for on tripadvisor.
Have emailed tripadvisor about this asking for refund but no response received.

Cruising the Bosporus Straight reveals a side of Istanbul not normally seen from land. Amazing architecture, sights and sounds as well as being able to see the European continent and Asian continent at the same time makes it a unique and worthwhile experience.
Tip: grab a window seat on the left hand (port) side of the boat as the boat stays close to the shore in both directions and the view is much better.

Honestly, as a first time visitor, this is a must as you will get to experience the many beautiful sites and faces of Istanbul! The Asian and European side. The different architectural design and different historical influences.
