“a must do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

the 1 day cruise to the bosphorus, reaching the gates of Marmara sea, was one of the great moments during my holiday. the journey is nice and comfortable, on the boat there is a coffee bar.
go on the hill to see the ancient fortress and have lunch at the spectacular terrace of the restaurant.
muat be done with nice weather conditions

“Simply enchanting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is absolutely what someone must do when in Istanbul!You can use the Istanbulcard, it is really inexpensive to get one of the frequent ferries to the Asian side.Arrange to be en route during the sunset when returning from the Asian side.Th traffic is dense with large cargo vessels passing fron and forth of your ferry.Get a tea (chai) if in winter and you are in the external board.

“Orientate yourself on this short cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Take a cruise from the far side of the Galeta Bridge - takes around an hour and a half and enables you to orient yourself in this vast city. Dress warmly if you go in winter - there are seats inside but it can be chilly. We wore winter coats, hats, scalves, gloves.
