As in all river cruises, the best part was it was really quiet and breezy. the trick is to find the right spot on the cruise so you're not in the sun. I think the cruise at sunset would be a better one than in the day.

When in Istanbul, you can easily do a local ferry trip on the Bosphorus, it really gives one a better sense of this gateway between Asia and Europe. You can also see much of the Bosphorus on a ferry trip to the Princess islands, 1 hour away.

The cruise we took was a little "shady". We should have shopped around a little more. There weren't enough seats for everyone in the covered area of the boat (and it was cool and raining). I didn't feel that the boat was the safest vessel either. I wish I could remember the name but I can't. I advise you to shop around and maybe get a look at the boat before booking a cruise.

A cool ride on a ferry to see the sites of Istanbul's city harbors is a pleasure on a hot day. The Bosphorus is a working river, with many cargo ships sharing space with ferries and pleasure cruise boats. An excellent time to relax and enjoy a cool breeze and a cold drink.
