About
Begin your 3-hours Bosphorus dinner cruise with either a coach pickup from your hotel or join your guide at the port. Then, board your festive boat for a sightseeing cruise of the Bosphorus Strait and see the monument-laden European and Asian coastlines. To help you settle in, grab a complimentary drink from the cabin bar, and then pick your favorite viewpoint to gaze out at Istanbul’s stunning monuments. Enjoy this exciting performance of music and dancing which sheds light on the city’s Anatolian culture. As the show picks up, get ready for classic belly dancing with playful twists and shakes enjoyed by all. Once the show is over, spend the last few minutes admiring the sparkling city as your boat arrives at the port. Next, either head back to your hotel by coach or continue your evening from here at your leisure.

Crowded boat trip, no privacy
Oct 2021 • Couples
Reading all the excellent reviews my expectations were high, but the experience was rather poor in the end.
The whole night started with a 40 mins waiting at our hotel lobby, the pick up bus was late and no one informed us about it, barely responding to our texts. Same on the way home, we were dropped last, took a long time to reach our hotel.

Arriving to the boat, we were seated by a crowded table between random families. Even non covid times it would be way too close to strangers…
The show was fine, the waiters were doing an excellent job. The selection of food was quite poor, but the quality was good!

I wish we knew about the seating conditions, I would have not take this cruise. It’s more like a big family experience, not for couples who might want a little more privacy, at least a private table.

Great experience!
Organized pick up and drop off. The dinner was tasty. Dance show was great! Lots of fun overall. The views at night were really spectacular. Definitely recommend this for anyone looking to knock out multiple experiences in a short time. We were only in Istanbul for a day, so it was really great for us!

Great views, entertainment and service.
A bit of a cattle call even during the pandemic. The food is pretty marginal. But we really enjoyed the cruise, views, entertainment and service. Unlimited alcohol package was well worth it.

Jun 2021 • Family
The food was terrible service was ok at best the boat was nice and the dancers were the highlight of the 2.5 hrs. We ordered perch and chicken, the perch was disgusting unable to eat it probably was not perch, as it was dark and bitter the chicken seemed frozen and old.

Hi Miljana, Thank you for taking part in our Bosphorus Dinner Cruise with Turkish Night Shows and for your lovely review of it. Even though your plane was delayed, our driver was able to manage to pick you up from your hotel and bring you to the boat in time. While celebrating your boyfriend's birthday on the boat, a special atmosphere was created with the participation of the other guest's abord. We hope to celebrate another birthday on our cruise again :) Best regards,

Great service on Boat
Mar 2021 • Friends
We were picked up by minibus from our hotel at 7pm. Then the bus made several hotels and an hour later we were on the boat. From 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., dinner was served on the lower deck as the boat sailed across the bosphorus. Then everyone got on the upper deck where a very pleasant show of oriental and Turkish dances took place at 10pm. At 11:30 pm the show ended, the dj took over and we danced until our return to the port at midnight. Then we took the minibus the opposite way to our hotel.
The meal was good and the drinks were free. To recommend but take a sweater because the nights on board in the open air are cool. Overall, we loved the dinner cruise and the night shows on the Bosphorus.

Entertaining
What a wonderful cruise! I was picked up on time at my hotel and brought over to the port. I was seated at my table and was offered great service during the show. Had a full 3 course meal. I chose the traditional meatballs since I haven't tried it and it was so delicious. There were several dance performances throughout the night and a highlight tour of some of the landmarks off the Bosphorous River. Towards the end of the show a photographer took some photos for a very small fee and they actually came out pretty good. Awesome way to end my last night in Istanbul with a ride back to my hotel.

Amazing cruise, really recommend it. From the pick up to drop off, everything was very well managed and the food was delicious from starter to dessert. We had ordered chicken meal which was cooked perfectly so soft and full of taste. We finished off our dinner with their kehwa. Also the dances were great everyone followed strict SOPS due to covid -19
