Great Sunset Trip Along the Bosphorus
Patrick_M
, Jun 2022
Everything is as advertised. Crew was professional and the guide provided a great overview of the city and some of the major sites along the strait. You are absolutely on a (modest) yacht, get served some snacks, and alcohol is available (we did have to ask - they missed an opportunity to ask us much earlier in the cruise).

Amazing experience!

It was an amazing experience. The staff were lovely! Istanbul is a beautiful city, and getting to experience it on a yacht going through the bosphoreus was amazing. The view and the sunset was just incredible! Definitely a must on your to do list! Me and my friends were in awe during the whole ride.

The best experience in Istanbul
Jatinder_P
, Jun 2022
It was the best experience in Istanbul. Magnificent view of both the Asian and the European side of Istanbul. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Snacks and drinks are served on the yacht. They even offer you blankets as it can get windy. Don’t think one can ask for more.

Wonderful evening
Vivienne_M

Very informative approachable staff, generous food and drinks. Wonderful harbour to cruise, especially in evenings, one of the most beautiful in the world. Only issue was pick ups were delayed from two very expensive hotels due to selfish people, not the cruise operators. I suggested to the staff they do not wait more than five minutes for people who are not ready to Baird when they know they need to.

Obviously a Bosphorus...
Sameer_P
, Jun 2022
Obviously a Bosphorus cruise should be on the list of to-dos in Istanbul and this is a 2.5 hour long cruise where they serve you plentiful snacks. But please know that this is a boat and not a yacht. The cruise has some 20 odd people and unfortunately the few seats in the front are where you get the best experience and money's worth in my opinion. So it is a hit or miss!!

Great tour
Anthony_G
, Jun 2022
It was great because it was a small group of maybe 20 people and the boat and food were very nice. Our guide was excellent the only things is there was no PA system to hear him so he would go back and forth between the front and back of the boat which was a little annoying but he did answer all my question and I felt it was well worth the money.

A lovely way to see the sunset over an entrancing city
Mark_R
, Jun 2022
The yacht is beautiful and very comfortable. Bear in mind that you are going on the water when the sun is going down and you are outside. You can get undercover if you wish. The boat provide blankets but we were shocked at how unprepared some people were for the drop in temperature. The trip takes you up to the Bosphorus bridge on the European side and then back down the Asian side. The guide points out the major sites and explains the history in a light hearted manner and is happy to answer questions. Nibbles and soft drinks are provided at regular intervals. Overall we found it to be a memorable experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip

Fairly organised and very nicely executed. The cruise went seemlessly with snacks and non-alcoholic beverages provided. Our tour guide Sinan was cool and funny. Highly recommended.

A special way to see the city
Sam_B
, Jun 2022
Really enjoyable - the cruise timed it perfectly so we saw the sunset over the famous skyline. Friendly guide who gave us interesting snippets of information that didn’t drag on. Nice snacks but don’t expect to be full by the end - they were very much just snacks. Make sure to wrap up warm as even when we went (mid June) when the wind came up it got quite chilly! They provided blankets too which was nice. Felt intimate and plenty of space on the boat so everyone gets a good view. A nice way to see such a vibrant and diverse city, either to help get your bearings or to cap off a nice trip.

Lovely experience but not as appears.
alice_O
, Jun 2022
The experience is lovely, and the staff are really warm and welcoming. however, the cruise is slightly misleading with the advert as you don't actually witness the sunset as they go up the river where the sunset isn't visible. you go up the European side then the Asian. be aware it is very cold when on the boat even at 30degrees when the wind is against you.

Beautiful sunset boat tour
Michael_S

The views from the Bosphorus are incredible. The guides were very hospital and gave us all a great tour of the city. The drinks and snacks were very nice and we were able to order alcoholic drinks for an extra charge. The boat is quite large and the views from up top were amazing. The group sizes are bigger than expected but that larger boat made up for it.

Not what we expect
Verapong_T
, Jun 2022
Boat is different from picture. I think because tour is fully book so they rent another boat for additional customers. It is too crowd on board and we cannot hear anything from guide since the sound system is real bad. so basically you ride a bit better boat but it doesn't worth your money much. Good side is you get drink, snack, fruit for better ride experience.
