    Bosphorus Strait
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Istanbul is a bridge between Europe and Asia, the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, a position that endows it with one of the most unique and beautiful settings in the world. For, between the hills on the European and Asiatic shores flows the Bosphorus, the brightest gem in the diadem of nature. "This beautiful strait, sometimes spelled Bosporus and sometimes Bosphorus, was so called from the earliest ages by the ancients; from the mythology of 10, the mistress of Jupiter, having passed over it in the shape of a cow. It resembles the Dardanelles, in length, breadth and current, and like it, is a narrow separation which divides Europe from Asia; but it has many features familiar to itself. Instead of being a solitary stream running between deserted shores, it is a body of water full of life and animation, winding its way through banks covered with palaces and villages, shaded with magnificent forest trees, presenting to the eye, at every mile, a new scene of crowded existence."

The sunset cruise was an excellent way to tour both the Europe and Asian waterfronts of the Bosphorus. The live guide shared fun facts and information we could use to inform our own itinerary for exploring the city. They also provided light snacks and there was a cash bar (definitely try some Turkish wine!). The sunset views were beautiful and the cruise gave us plenty of angles to capture pictures. Time wise, it was around 2-2.5 hours roundtrip, leaving/departing from Kabatas, which has a nearby metro station. I would recommend this cruise to anyone wanting to get beautiful views of the Bosphorus and the waterfronts.

It wasn’t just great in itself, it was great in treating customers and their unexpected problems. On the day that was booked, all trams suddenly stopped and it was not possible to find another option to get to the place of departure of the yacht quickly. We have already put an end to this event, what a pleasant surprise it was when, after learning the reason why we missed the trip, we were invited to repeat it the next day, without any additional payments. We almost missed her, but still managed. We caught a beautiful sunset, along the route we were told about the sights and just interesting places that we passed by. Snacks and drinks (alcohol is served for a fee) were very helpful. An excellent option for cruising along the Bosphorus, I highly recommend it! Bosphorus Sunset Cruise is a must in Istanbul.

Hello
I took the tour with my girlfriend. The tour startet around 6pm and everything was well organised. There were around 25 people on board of the yacht. However it didn’t feel crowded at all. There was enough space inside as well as outside in the front and back of the yacht. The tour took around 2.5h, so there was plenty of time to take photos. Every time we passed some famous or special building the English speaking tour guide gave us some interesting information. It may have not been the best English there ever will be, probably like my own, but it was easy to understand and not too much information. When he stopped talking they played some music which helped me to enjoy the tour even more. We were lucky with the weather condition, so I can’t tell anything about wind or rain. To my own surprise they offered some free drinks (water, tea, lemonade) and free little snacks (fruit plate, Baklava, nut mix). So all in all it was really enjoyable and I think it was worth the 50€ pp.

A very pleasant moment on this boat with a very nice guide who gives importants infos (even in Spanish!). Comfortable with lots of little starter, coffee, fruits, deserts etc. A final just at the right time of sunset with the angle of the boat just in the right place to take a picture of the sun disappearing behind the great mosque. Highly recommended.

We took the cruise instead of the big boats. Im so happy we did, we could see the boats around with so much partying and noise. This is an 80 foot yatch that is available for tours and rental. The boat is well maintained , everything is clean. They have a guide that speaks a few different languages and will tell the story of the sites around while we sail up the Bosphorus . They will bring good snacks and drinks. Alcohol is also served for a fee. I recommend it. Beware of the time, try and arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled time. The meeting point for the cruise is the ferry station, it is big and may not find them. if that happens run to the marina next to ferry station and look for the bat and guide. The boat only comes in to bard and unboard the passengers. 8 of 10

Highly recommended - I discovered the Bosphorus Sunset Cruise online and from the minute I called them to reserve the cruise to getting on board the cruise these guys made sure that we were treated in the best way possible. Highly courteous crew and amazing hospitality is what you will enjoy through out the course of the cruise. The light bites and drinks served on board are top quality will keep on coming with unlimited supply of Turkish Tea. On request they even dropped me to my nearby Hotel Pier at Ortokay post completion of the tour. Summing up - the best tour available in its segment, if your planning to take the Bosphorus Cruise just book it with your eyes closed.

We had a fantastic time on Bosphorus Sunset Cruise by luxury yact. The cruise itinerary was perfect, we saw all the sights of Bosphorus from our luxury yacht including Dolmabahce Palace, Ortakoy, Rumeli Fortress, Bosphorus Bridges, Beylerbeyi Palace, Maiden's Tower and much more. The views of the city at dusk was breathking and we were fascinated while watching the chaning of the skyline colours.
Tour guide was very friendly and gave information about the places we saw.
Of course, the snacks and other items served were just delicious, i loved baklava:)
Thanks for this great experience, strongly suggested.

The cruise on the Bosphorus was simply beautiful at the sunset. Amazing city views along two sides of the Bosphorus were all wort of seeing while hearing the live commentary of the informative tour guide. Yacht crew served delicious snacks, baklava, fresh season fruits, tea and coffee, all delicious. From the first moment till end of the Bosphorus Sunset cruise, we enjoyed every seconds of it. Thanks for such a fantastic cruise.

What an amazing experience! The cruie started daytime, we witnessed the sunset from our luxury yacht and the cruise ended up after it got dar, it was like a magical ride on the calm waters of the Bosphorus.
The cruise began from kabatas pier and we went up to the second Bosphorus bridge, then crossed to the other side, the Asian side. We came back following the Asiatic shorelines and our friendly guide gave information about the sights we saw and information in general history and daily life of Istanbul.
They also kept serving delicious snacks, cookies, Turkish baklava, frest season fruits, home-made lemanode, tea and coffee..all tasty and more than enougn.
We approached to the Maiden's Towere, a very well appointed point to wacth the sunset ove the old town of Istanbul, Sultanahmet while the enchanting from the minarets heard.
Overall, we had the best time on the cruise in Istanbul. If we resturn, we will definetlly do it again.
