This ride will take few minutes from you while standing in queue will take much more than that unless you go very early. A short ride crossing crowded roads with a nice view. Good to stop for ice cream or a cup of Turkish coffee

Visitors must not miss this. It gives you best view of Istanbul. If you are interested in photography, you can take best photographs from it.

residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining
