Read a lot of contradicting information about this beforehand, so I'm going to try to be as clear as possible. If you stand at Eminou pier facing the Galata bridge, the booth for this cruise is the second on your right. The kiosk itself is...More

Also agree with IngC. Beautiful cruise, cheap, interesting, easy to navigate, English-language announcements, easy breezy. The climb up to the castle ruins was well worth it--great views of the Black Sea. We were in Istanbul for only 3 days, and spending one-half of one of...More

Fully reinforce IngC's commentary (8th April 18). So much better value than the organised cruises. The boats have a café so you can get food and refreshments albeit the toilet facilities were a little basic on our boat. A great way to relax from visiting...More

For only 25TL you can get a round trip from Eminou to Anadolou Kavagi, which is a real bargain. Go to Eminou docks – there is a separate ticketing booth for the Bosphorus Cruise, so it should be pretty easy to find. The ferry leaves...More

Very poor service since the discount for having the museum card of 125TL is not applied. It's written that there is. Impossible to contact the sehir hatlari and the Muzekart agency by email.
