I had been in Istanbul before and skipped the cruise. Being with friends this time, I decided to give it a go. It was very chilly and windy on the boat, but we were prepared for that. We also got the audio guide which was quite good for the journey. We took the advice of one of the reviewers here and sat on the left side, which proved to be very valuable (All the main sites are on the left!) because on the way back, I slept for the entire journey! We also had a sample of the famous yogurt with the powdered sugar, it was alright.
On Anadolu, It is very ideal to spend at least 2hours on the island. No one told us the path to the castle would be long and steep!! I was so tired at the top but it was worth it. We definitely should have eaten before setting off, but the trek worked up our appetites, so that when the sea bass came, it was attacked with a certain ferocity.
It was a very good day out with my friends. Second highlight of my trip to Istanbul this time.
