“Romantic cruise”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Don't forget to have a small cruise to Bosphorus. You will never forget about. Take your camera and enjoy the view! Best time before sunset, so you will get more nice pics!

“Once in a lifetime!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Although there are many beautiful cities with amazing seafront segments or riverside banks, the Bosphorus is a unique experience in itself. The best way to enjoy it is to catch a boat and cruise along it taking in the views from both sides namely Europe and Asia. You can catch one of the city liner boats leaving from Eminonu (but these are just a few times during the day) or hop on a smaller boat leaving Ortaköy these are much more frequent but only run during high season that is May thru September.

“Enjoy it ;)”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Take a short trip to enjoy looking at beautiful Istanbul from the Bosporus.

There are short trips(an hour or so) for as little as 12.5TL!!! I thought it was € or maybe dollars!!

So enjoy th short trip with your beloved ones in the heart of the Bosporus.

“Full day tour”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Catch the ferry at Eminönü at around 10.30 on a sunny day. Enjoy the criss-crossing up the Bosphorus. Get off at Anadolu Kavagi (final stop), walk uphill to the old ruin and enjoy the view of the Black Sea. Then lunch at the harbour, a stroll in the small village, and then back. Don't forget to keep your return ticket. Back in Eminönü 16.30. A memorable day!

“See Turkey from both sides”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

When in Europe, that is what you do. You ride the hop on hop off busses, you take a boat cruise and a river. In our instance, we had a private guide that took us onto a age old boat all the way to the golden horn. He then took us up with the cable car to look at graves as well as a beautifull site from above. Definately every cent (and minute) worth our while!!
