The Bospherous is beautiful, day and night, but find a better way to enjoy it than on a dinner/dance cruise. A truly horrifying experience that left us wishing for an iceberg to suddenly appear. Don't say you weren't warned.

These cruises start from docks located on both sides of the Galata Bridge. Our hotel suggested a tour that was around $80 per person. We booked a shorter and more informal cruise for 12 TL per person ($7.00 or so). The boat took us out...More

A very inexpensive day out. To take a tour of the Bosphorus on a cloudless sunny day and sit aboard the ferry as it slowly eases its way down the European side from the Galata Bridge to the Black sea is to witness history unfold....More

Our tour included a trip on the Bospherus. We went over to the Asian side and visited an old "Yalli" which was fascinating. The Bospherus is exciting to be on--many years of history and many different kinds of buildings. Was great to see many fishermen...More

In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for
space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green
parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather
wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of
opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For
