Bosphorous cruise

We will only be in Istanbul two nights and one. Is an evening cruise of the Bosphorous as good as a day cruise?

Mttolentino, yes, they are. Some are even better. You can take the 8.00 pm or 9.00 pm cruise by Turyol Company for 1.5 hours. They depart from Turyol pier at Eminonu. It costs 12 TL.

good luck,

Thanks enigma! My husband and I will be on a cruise in Oct. 2014. Do you know if there are taxis in that area to take us to the Turyol pier? Also do know an authentic restaurant and a good show, maybe whirling dervish or folk dancing?

Our ship also stops in Marmaris, Antalya, and Kusadasi if you have any suggestions there as well. I have read about the shared taxi (doumos ?). Wondering if they're safe or shore excursions with English speaking guides are best. We really like to get to know the real country and it's people. Thanks. Mary
