Nice and quick 2.5 hours with hotel pick up. The you lads working on the tour were a good laugh and the ferry was comfortable. It gets very cold though, be sure to bring your jumpers and jackets!

Enjoyed getting away from the main part of the city and seeing how residents live along the river. From the humble to the ultra wealthy. Much to be learned and a nice respite on the water.

I did enjoy travelling up the Bosphorus on this day cruise, but given the crucial location of this seaway over centuries, I really would have liked much more information about the significance of the Bosphorus to Empires and trade throughout history. Some historic buildings were...More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere

an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a

relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
