A dinner show worthy of cabaret on a very beautiful boat. In addition, the cruise on the Bosphorus at night is just surreal, it is so magnificent. Istanbul is definitely a magic city. The dinner served on board is correct the service at the top only one to say it is to be done at all costs. We left with perimeters especially do not hesitate to negotiate the prices when booking they are making great discounts.

We attended this dinner cruise to celebrate my partner's birthday and we had a wonderful time. We informed them about our birthday and the company informed us that they would prepare a birthday cake.- staff was friendly and worked hard to meet everyone's needs, the views from the deck are spectacular at night, and the nights shows performed a very lively dance trip were very successful further to a great evening. We also found the dinner served quite sufficient and food was delicious.Prices for such a good service was affordance as well. Altogether - a great experience and highly recommended!

We were picked up by minibus from our hotel at 7pm. Then the bus made several hotels and an hour later we were on the boat. From 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., dinner was served on the lower deck as the boat sailed across the bosphorus. Then everyone got on the upper deck where a very pleasant show of oriental and Turkish dances took place at 10pm. At 11:30 pm the show ended, the dj took over and we danced until our return to the port at midnight. Then we took the minibus the opposite way to our hotel.
The meal was good and the drinks were free. To recommend but take a sweater because the nights on board in the open air are cool. Overall, we loved the dinner cruise and the night shows on the Bosphorus.

Cruise was nice, food was good. Limited alcohol choices available. Dancers where great. Biggest issue was the show as difficult to see as it was on the main dinning deck (due to cooler weather) and there where a lot of dinners blocking the view. The dinning room could have been laid out better so that people could see better. They also had the table t o crowded with dinners shoulder to shoulder. I would suggest they cut available seating by 25-30% and rearrange the tables so everyone is facing the dance floor.

What a wonderful cruise! I was picked up on time at my hotel and brought over to the port. I was seated at my table and was offered great service during the show. Had a full 3 course meal. I chose the traditional meatballs since I haven't tried it and it was so delicious. There were several dance performances throughout the night and a highlight tour of some of the landmarks off the Bosphorous River. Towards the end of the show a photographer took some photos for a very small fee and they actually came out pretty good. Awesome way to end my last night in Istanbul with a ride back to my hotel.

Reading all the excellent reviews my expectations were high, but the experience was rather poor in the end.
The whole night started with a 40 mins waiting at our hotel lobby, the pick up bus was late and no one informed us about it, barely responding to our texts. Same on the way home, we were dropped last, took a long time to reach our hotel.

Arriving to the boat, we were seated by a crowded table between random families. Even non covid times it would be way too close to strangers…
The show was fine, the waiters were doing an excellent job. The selection of food was quite poor, but the quality was good!

I wish we knew about the seating conditions, I would have not take this cruise. It’s more like a big family experience, not for couples who might want a little more privacy, at least a private table.

The cruise was jam packed; there were signs promoting COVID safety but attendees were seated shoulder to shoulder with NO social distancing. People were smoking on ship deck and keeping the door to the seated area open so they could watch the show at the same time. Bought unlimited drinks but wait staff was so busy only enjoyed one. Guess it served as a box check but I wouldn’t recommend.

We booked Bosphorus dinner cruise with Turkish night shows with Istanbul Bisphorus Tours, we sent a reservation request and they responded back so fast. We were not asked to pay for the cruise in advance. As promised,they picked us up from our hotel which was a big help. When we boarded on the boat,our table was already ready and we were placed right by the window so that we could see the sights of Istanbul while we cruise around the Bosphorus. The dinner served was rich and fresh. But what we liked the most was the Turkish night shows presented by a professional dance team,we really apreciate their enthuaism. When the cruise was over,we were safely droven back to our hotel. We spent a pleasent evening on this cruise and strongly suggest any one wishing to have a dinner on a boat cruise with some nice entertaintments.

Amazing cruise, really recommend it. From the pick up to drop off, everything was very well managed and the food was delicious from starter to dessert. We had ordered chicken meal which was cooked perfectly so soft and full of taste. We finished off our dinner with their kehwa. Also the dances were great everyone followed strict SOPS due to covid -19
