“On a nice day, wonderful view of Istanbul”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

What a wonderful way to see Istanbul from another view, at the same time learn about the different buildings and areas. Would definitely recommend.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

See it from any side, any point and the view would be awesome. It is a picture perfect istanbul.
A boat/yacht ride across the strait might be touristy and sound cheesy but is definitely worth it and not to be missed.

“nice trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

We went on a 1,5 hour-long boat trip on the stream. The view was wonderful in the aftrenoon. we were floating back as the sun was setting, it was fantastic the city in that aftrenoon light. The other fantastic experience was the feeling that you are between two continents. It is a nice program after a tiring tour in the city centre.

“A cow crossed the strait?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

It took time to understand what was the lireary meaning of this word! But we took a ship ride at night and the city looked really colorful. The trip was very well organised with brilliant display of local dance and songs. The tourists were from almost all continents.

“A boat tour on the Bosphorus is a nice way to spend an afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

We heard that a boat tour up and down the Bosphorus was a different way to see Istanbul. So we booked a boat tour through our hotel for the afternoon and were not disappointed with all we saw. We cruised up the European side to the second suspension bridge crossed over and came down the Asian side. There is much to see, old Ottoman Palaces, beautiful homes and a lot of interesting ships, boats and ferries traversing the Bosphorus. We had a delightful time on our cruise and we would recommend it for a different perspective on seeing Istanbul.
