One of the days of our trip Monday, 10/23 is the first day of Seker Bayrami. Since all the museums and other touristic sites will be closed this day we thought we would hop on the 10.35 Bosphorus ferry in Eminönü and enjoy the trip. (Since it is a holiday it may start at 10.00 instead of the usual 10.35?).
1. Is it best to take the ferry or a private boat? Read that the ferry is often very crowded and smokey???
2. If we took the ferry should we go as far as Anadolu Kava?? or is it best to leave the boat in Bebek or in Sar?yer and have lunch in one of the fish restaurants and return to Sultanahmet
Any suggestions would really be helpful!
