“A Great Boat Ride”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We took the 2 hour boat ride and it was a wonderful trip. Just seeing the buildings and such as you cruise along is worth the price of the trip. Lots of ships of all kinds out on the water and you get a good sense of how busy and important this port is.

“Cruise trip”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Travelled on a cruise to Istanbul up the Bosphorus.The approach to Istanbul is out of this world!. The sun shining off the domes of countless mosques and the constant excitement of river traffic.

“The beautiful border between Europe and Asia”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

This strait has been open since the great flood (which filled up the Black Sea. Istanbul is on both sides. There are bridges and ferries to take across, or take to view all the palaces on its shores.

“So quiet, with warm breezes and bridges lights..”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Located at the border between Europe and Asia, Bosphorus strait defines Istanbul.. makes it be what it really is... If you are there, don't miss taking a tour of the strait by boat.. There are many options.. Cruises or the tours offered by Turyol.. In the night, a cruise is just amazing... In my opinion, it's a must-do in Istanbul!
