    We took tour on Bosphorus departure at 6 pm and it was very nice . Everything went smoothly and on time. The boat even stopped for 10 minutes in the middle of the Bosphorus so we could enjoy the fireworks for Ataturk's National Day. Really beautiful and exciting. To do it again in the daytime as well. Worth every euro spent. Thank you

    It was a nice 2 hour tour of the Bosphorous. Totally worth the money. Not too crowded.

    A relaxing 2-hour cruise along the Bosphorus is the perfect way to take in Istanbul’s many magnificent palaces, castles, mosques and bridges, all while beating the city traffic! Start off by meeting your expert English-speaking guide walking down to the pier to begin your tour. Float along the Bosphorous waterway and get superb views of the city including the Dolmabahce Palace, the Topkapi Palace, and the stunning 15th-century Rumeli Fortress. Take photographs at the Golden Horn, the freshwater estuary that separates the old and new parts of the city. Your guide will tell you interesting tidbits about the history and culture of Istanbul as you pass by these sights.
