“Cool views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

There are lots and lots of really nice cafés which have views over the bosphorus. Maybe a bit more expensive then other cafés but for European standards still cheap and the cool views and photos are included

“A Must!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

A visit to Istanbul will not be complete without a cruise on The Bosphorous Strait. We did it on our last evening in Istanbul and it brought our whole vacation to a wonderful end. We booked a cruise which included dinner and entertainment. The trip took about 4 hours and the city view at night from the Bosphorous is truly something to behold. We could identify all the places we visited but they looked different at night in coloured lights.

“Great view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

The cruse on the boat is well worth doing. You get a good view of all the buildings on both sides of the Bosphorus. Very interesting. It is a trip well worth doing. We did it in the day time, but, I suspect that it would be much better at night.

“Unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

I loved the concept of being separated from Asia by a strait but united under a same town. One of the best trips of my life.

“Amazing international highway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

The best way to enjoy the view of the strait is from the Konyali cafe at the Topkapi palace grounds. The number of ships going to the Sea of Marmara or to the Back Sea is fascinating to watch.
