Well worth the 15 lira we paid which is under 4 quid! I would advise hopping on around sunset as the views are stunning at this time. It treks along the Europe side then turns at a big bridge and returns down the Asian side...More

The evening tour before sunset was beautiful as we were able to experience the European side as the sun dipped and the Asian side of the Bosphorus and the night fall came in.

Basic trip, with seating around the sides and centre, with no cushions, total duration 1.5hrs. Some waiter was shouting "Portukal"!, selling orange squash, in flimsy plastic cups. Felt sorry for him. The on board commentary was difficult to listen to, and not of much use.

It was spring, so it was a perfect time to go cruising on a boat. The view was enchanting. We were able to cross to Europe from Asia. The one hour spent only to the boat was very relaxing.

The cruise is a must do for a first timer in Istanbul. There are many private tours offered by folks throughout the city, these in my opinion are unnecessarily expensive. Take the public cruise that takes of from karaköy - you won't get the guide...More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
