Owner description: For those who want to enjoy Istanbul's beauty at night while tasting rich Turkish cusine and watching the Turkish dances, Bosphorus dinner cruise & Turkish night show is the most ideal activity in Istanbul. Hop aboard your sightseeing boat and cruise out into the Bosphorus - the strait that splits Istanbul onto two continents.Spend your evening in Istanbul cruising around the beautiful Bosphorus Strait while enjoying dinner and an Anatolian folklore show with belly dancing, henna ceremony and much more. Gliding through the water, your boat follows a route that includes views of Istanbul's top attractions - all enchantingly illuminated at night. Cruise past the Blue Mosque and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge while eating, drinking and enjoying the show!As you cruise through the waters around Istanbul, your host will serve a traditional Turkish dinner with unlimited drinks. Sit back and watch a folklore show to give you a taste of Anatolian culture in the city.

“The whirling derwishes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Semah (ritual dance), semazen (the whirling dervishes), semah is not a dance, it s real way to arriving God by music and it s all transcendence...
I can suggest to all tourist who going to Turkey.. It should be seen and experienced...
Btw.. I was about to forget belly dancer of Turkey.. This is a tradational dance and the dancers really talented.. In Turkey those are unforgettable memory for all us...

“Tourist trap!!! Not worth the money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

We did the Bosporus cruise with dinner and dance show. This is not a folkloristic performance! The belly dancer is entertaining, but all in all the performance is quite short. The second half of the cruise is disco with house music. The food started nice with bread and delicious dips, but afterwards we just got a piece of fried chicken/fish.
The service could have been better and the staff more friendly. All in all we expected something nicer for the price we paid (135 TL per person).
We still give two points because the dancers really made an effort, and the view was quite nice.
