“Take the turyol tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The turyol ferries, they're provided by the government and are much cheaper then other tours around for the same experience. They cost 12 TL per person and go past the Bosphorus bridge and you get clear views of both the European and Asian sides of Istanbul, don't be tricked into paying 20 TL or more for another tour!

“Great site for a short boat ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We took a tour that included a boat ride that lasted about 1 1/2 hours. This is a great way to see the European and Asian sides of the City from the water. Night boat rides are available with dinner and shows. Totally recommend it!
