we took short Bosphorus tour (2 hours) and to be honest we were a bit bored. I would prefer to take boat one way to see great views, bridges, building, city from the water. But once you there I would prefer to take a bus tour back to see one of the sides of the Bosphorus. Return trip was no fun.

Lovely, but a cruise more than 30-40 mins can get boring. I go some of my best pictures on the Bosphorus cruise.

I went by boat...and it was very chill and cheap! Drink a tea while you feel the beauty of the views...

The sea is great, the boats on the water looks like a taxi service on wheels, You can cross with a ferry boat for 3 Turkish lira or do a 2 hour trip for 10 Turkish Lira. It wa great doing the 2 hour trip.

We then (only my husband ) had a fish sandwich consisting of bread, salad and a fillted fish for 6 Turkish Lira - he said he was very happy having the sandwich.
