        Istanbul is a bridge between Europe and Asia, the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, a position that endows it with one of the most unique and beautiful settings in the world. For, between the hills on the European and Asiatic shores flows the Bosphorus, the brightest gem in the diadem of nature.

        Amazing experience in Sunset Cruise!
        AMAZING! Better than expected. Small luxury yacht - great service. From the clear ci tact’s pre cruise to the hotel pickup to stepping off at the end (we didn’t want to!). Lights snacks and beverages provided and small cash bar on board. Tour guide throughout with music intervals was terrific and really enjoyed being able to walk about the small boat in 2 levels. And the views were excellent t and then the stop for the sunset and photo ops was even better! Highly recommend you book this when visiting Istanbul!

        Beautiful way to see the city away from the heat and crowds
        Such an awesome way to see the city. The crew was lovely, their service was wonderful and we saw a beautiful sunset and all of the main sites we wanted to see in Istanbul from the water with a perfect breeze on the day we went.

        Great sights, boat, and guide!
        This was a wonderful way to finish a great trip to Istanbul! The boat was comfortable and very clean, and the service was impeccable. Best of all, the guide explained everything we were seeing (a lot), and we learned a great deal of this quite historic area. We even stopped for amazing yogurt on the Asia side! Highly recommended, even if you have a few hours.

        Beautiful Bosphorus tour!
        Deniz is a brilliant guide with encyclopedic knowledge ... morning tour was lovely... friendly staff and good snacks along the journey. Might have wanted a bit more time to wander at the stop over... or the option of seeing the fishing village (currently only on lunch cruise). Highly recommended!

        Amazing experience.....not to miss.
        It was a great experience. This sunset cruise covers the european as well as the Asian coastal line with the iconic palaces and the nearby famous places. The yacht itself was very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and punctual. They do serve some light snacks and lemonade. The running commentary by Deniz was wonderful, having good knowledge and very clear to understand. There were hardly 25 tourists on board so definitely not crowded. It was about 2.5 hours long but definitely worth every minute for the magnificent views .....highly recommend it.

        Must see as a way to see the city
        If you are coming to Istanbul, a sunset cruise is a wonderful way to see the city. The views of Istanbul’s skyline at dusk are breathtaking, with iconic landmarks like the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque glowing against the evening sky. The crew was amazing, providing attentive and friendly service throughout the journey. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, sharing fascinating insights about Istanbul’s history and culture. This experience offered a unique perspective of the city, making it a must-do for any visitor. Highly recommended!

        Amazing tour with professionals. They knew about Istanbul’s culture, took photos and made the trip a 5 star tour. We were served free tea, dessert (baklava), fruits and some nuts.

      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.

      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.

      We are a group of friends having short weekend visit to İstanbul. Apart than historical sites we heard that Dinner Cruise must do. We booked online and they immediatly inform us for pick up time. They pick us up from pür hotel as they promise. We get in in a huge boat and have a table close to stage, embarked around 20.30 and sail on Bosphorus in the night, foods were vere good but too much, folkloric dances and Belly Dancer I enjoyed specificly.
      I really ilke it.
      Thank you for everyone in İstanbul Bosphorus Cruise
      I trully recommend their servise

      What a nice way of ending sightseeing in İstanbul. Even we did a say time boat cruise on the Bosphorus we wanted to city from the water by night, which i belive was a good decision after all. The city of İstanbul has a different face at night and this cruise added something special to the night, good food and amazing Turkish dances were the essentials of the night.

      This cruise was the highlight of out trip in Istanbul. The boat was in good conditions, dinner was delicious but the best part was the dancers performing typical Turkish folk dances along with belly dancers and dervishes. Overall, this was a great experience for all of us.

      Not sure what the bad reviews are about. For the price you are being picked up and dropped off from your hotel, food is good (choose from chicken, fish or beef), quality entertainment, GORGEOUS views around the Bosphorus!!! There are three levels on this boat. You are free to move around.

      The only improvements needed are--sometimes it was a bit hard to see the performers. It would be nice if they could move around the room a bit more, perhaps go down the aisles. Also, there are photographers there that take your pictures and sell them to you at the end for a really cheap price, only if you want of course. However the actually photographers are a bit aggressive. They should pick up on people's cues and leave them alone if photos aren't wanted. They photographer kept telling me to "show teeth." I NEVER show teeth in pictures and told him so, but he kept insisting.

      A little annoyance from a photographer did not deter me though. My mother and I had a wonderful time as did the people around us. This really was underpriced.

      Seeing Istanbul at night via cruise was nice. But the food and drinks were very mediocre, and the staff were not very efficient. They kept mixing up orders and were not very responsive when we asked for drinks, seemed like they were very short-staffed. They were also behind schedule on everything. The cruise is 4 hours long. For the live Turkish dance performances, it can be difficult to see anything if you don't grab a good seat early as the deck and dance area are not elevated. Also, be aware that the ride back to the hotel can take a long time if you have to go through Istanbul traffic; we left at midnight on Saturday night, and traffic was very bad due to Istanbul nightlife in the area, we took 1 hour to travel a 10-min walking distance by car; might be better to walk back if your hotel is in the area.

      It was a nice experience! The staff was nice and the food was okay, I was actually pretty impressed that everyone was served at once for the whole boat and the food all seemed to come warm fresh from the oven. The staff was a bit overwhelmed with drink orders though so it took a while to receive refills. The dancers are talented and entertaining, even had my colleague invited up on the stage to dance along with them at one point. There were definitely some amazing sights only to be seen from the water point of view which I’m grateful to have experienced.
      The transport wasn’t an issue for us since we were in the area and simply walked to the boat and then walked to Taksim square afterwards for a drink but I could see a cluster of busses and throngs of people trying to find the right one, and at that time of night on a Friday, the traffic was horrific. I actually bad for those riding the buses.

      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

      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.
