A cruise on Bosphorus is a must do - great view of the places and the city. We did not have too much time, so did the 2 hour cruise if you have longer - suggest you take the late evening one, so that you...More

I took this ride with a group of travelers, The old palace, the shore line of unusual buildings, the changing building structures everywhere. We got a really interesting perspective on the "suburbs" of Istanbul. A great 2 hours well spent.

The Bosporus Strait (or Bosphorus) connects the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara. It also separates Asian Turkey from European Turkey (Trace), thus it separates the two continents.

Take a ferry ride from Europe to Asia. It is a beautiful trip from the continent of Europe to the continent of Asia. On a sunny day, the Bosphorus is turquoise.

You can get many cheap tickets for a 2 hour cruise on the Bosphorus. It is a great way to see the sights from the water. But don;t forget to bring a good jacket. It can get very cold out on the water.

We took a 1 hour fairy tour in the Bosphorus and couldnt be happier. Though there are many locations for Fairies, i took the one off of Ortakoy. Its well worth the 1 hour and the price is fairly low. It cost 20 Turkish Lira...More

When you come to Ortakoy you can walk, eat very delicious dishes, drink all kind of things or just sit down near the sea side across the charming view of the bosphorus. Its very fascinating place at night as well. Small shops gives you many...More

I would recommend taking the tour offered by the ferry company rather than the private tours. It is cheaper and just as good. Takes 1.5 hours.

it is easy, just get to know the ticketing office. We went with a private guide, just much easier, and you can request the sites you wish to see
