Lots of operators offer boat trips up the Bosphorus and back.. up to the second bridge, the one beyond the famous one. Don't take the 70 euro one.. there are plenty of boats offering a very nice one hour or 90-minute ride for 10 lira (less than £4 sterling). Very well worth doing.. great views of sumptuous villas on both banks. And superb views back to the city itself, Euorpean and Asian.

Loved our cruise along the Bosphorus. Take the public ferry and go all the way. The private tours don't go to the Black sea.

Seeing dolphins again in the Bosphorus is such good news. There were several swimming along our ferry as we headed up to the Black Sea for lunch. Do get there early to get in line for a good seat! The audio tour is quite good.

We walked from the northerly suspension bridge to the southerly suspension bridge across the Bosphorus (about three miles). In addition to enjoying great views of the Bospherous, we walked by a fortress constructed in prepration for the Ottoman invasion of Istanbul, encountered many fisherman, and passed several good places to eat and/or drink.
