Fascinating to watch the 100s of ships on this strait everyday going back and forth from the Marmara Sea to the Black Sea. Wonderful place for long walks and just enjoying being close to the water.

Difficult to review this as Bosphoris strait offers a lot and depends on what you want to do/see.

Few things that we did and recommend are:

A Bosphorus cruise is recommended if you are in Istanbul as a tourist. Nice pleasant experience and it is not very expensive at 15 TL (for the short 1.5-2 hour cruise). Try taking the tickets from the good/recommended cruise companies at the ferry terminals or from Şehir Hatları, the official ferry company and avoid the agents who try to sell you the cruise tickets at other major tourist attractions or near the ferry terminals.

So many walks along the different parts of the strait is also a great experience with its views, atmosphere, the suspension bridges (great view at night) and the historic sites.

Have food from any of the good restaurants and cafes and just enjoy the evening hustle bustle and the breeze.

A normal ferry ride like a Istanbul resident is also a great experience and pretty cheap too.

Starting from Eminonu, the tour takes almost the whole day. Have tea on the ship and enjoy the view. Food at Anadolu Hisari was also great. You can get off in Besiktas on the way back.

No trip to Istanbul is complete without a cruise of the Bosporus. It is the best way to cap off a trip to the city.
