There is no better way to see this timeless city than ferry. Watching the city go by, bridges pass over you and cargo ships cruise on by is an experience savored by visitors and locals alike. Tip: wake up early on a weekday and take the commuter ferry from Eminönü near the Galata Bridge. You won't have any commentary or Top 40 pop music, but you find yourself having tea with a nice İstanbullu on their way to work.

It takes 1:30 h and worth every turkish lira ( 12 tl). The cruise takes you up to the sexond bridge that connect the 2 parts of Istanbul. You will see nice palaces and beautiful houses while enjoy the wonderful view.

Loved it. Beautiful views on both sides of the strait which bridge connects two continents.Two or three hour boat trip for only $6.00 per person is a real deal for an unforgettable experience.

Lovely 2.5 hour cruise on the Bosphorus. By far the most beautiful cruise I've been on. Snacks are available and there is plenty of seating.
