“Boat Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

We drove over the bridge then later took a Boforus boat tour.
The bridge is lit for night.
The waterway is full of traffic
Locals catching dinner
The shore is lined with expensive homes
Lots to see
We loved it

“Cool looking bridge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Saw this bridge as we went underneath it on the Bosphorus boat ride, nice looking bridge. Wouldn't have seen it if we weren't on the boat, nothing special.

“Nice Suspension Bridge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

We actually went under this bridge on the Bosphorus Straight boat ride. The bridge looks well maintained and the surrounding views add to it's beauty. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this bridge, but it did add a nice touch to the boat ride.

“Cross it !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

If you can cross this bridge do it! It is not the bridge itself, it is not beautiful or something like that, but the surroundings make it special. With a simple metro bus, or normal bus, you can cross it, enjoy the golden horn view and, of course, take some pictures. And, it is quite cool to feel between Europe and Asia :)

“An average use of your time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Being on the Bosphorus is a grey thing to do. Doing it by going over the bridge is probably the least satisfying...... too short a time and limited view if you are driving. As far as the bridge itself, yes its long and its high but it's no Golden Gate Bridge - somehow its just lacks that something special
