“Short Tour”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

The boat was old and battered. The tour was long enough to see main attractions along the Bosphorus. The restroom is horrid. There was no tiolet paper, tiolets not flushable and leaking, and terrible stench. I guess you get what you pay for. Thankfully the day was clear and sunny was able to see some attractions.

“Great value for money”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is the non touristy good value for money tour. It cost 15TL each and lasted 1.5 hours, which was just long enough for the kids. It goes from galata bridge, over past maidens island & up to the second bridge and back. There is a commentary, but it is difficult to hear, so take your guide book. It takes you past all the palaces and fantastic waterside properties.
From the Eminonu tram stop, walk past all the touristy cruise boats, through a short underpass (essentially going under the bridge), past the boats with red canopy roofs & gold coronets making fish sandwiches & you'll see the Turyol ticket office.
Cafe on board and men selling Turkish tea for 1TL.
This web site is good and has more detail http://www.turkeytravelplanner.com/go/Istanbul/Sights/Bosphorus/turyol.html
Negative - one toilet, a bit grotty,so go before you board.
