For those who want to enjoy Istanbul's beauty at night while tasting rich Turkish cusine and watching the Turkish dances, Bosphorus dinner cruise & Turkish night show is the most ideal activity in Istanbul. Hop aboard your sightseeing boat and cruise out into the Bosphorus - the strait that splits Istanbul onto two continents.Spend your evening in Istanbul cruising around the beautiful Bosphorus Strait while enjoying dinner and an Anatolian folklore show with belly dancing, henna ceremony and much more. Gliding through the water, your boat follows a route that includes views of Istanbul's top attractions - all enchantingly illuminated at night. Cruise past the Blue Mosque and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge while eating, drinking and enjoying the show!As you cruise through the waters around Istanbul, your host will serve a traditional Turkish dinner with unlimited drinks. Sit back and watch a folklore show to give you a taste of Anatolian culture in the city.
