Some of our fellow travelers spent $60 on a Bosphorus Cruise... we took the short cruise for under $5. Sure, they got commentary and a more intimate experience... but I don't think one of them enjoyed it more than we did taking this public transportation...More

Took the 6 hour cruise. Great day out, and incredibly it cost less than 100TL for our entire family of four. Can't recommend highly enough.

Not to be missed! If you're in Istanbul long enough to spend most of a day on the water, do it. If not, the 2 hour tour is maybe a good substitute. First the tickets, 25 TL for the long cruise - best bargain in...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
