Istanbul Bosphorus Boat Cruise

At the indicated time, we'll meet up at the Kabatas Ferry Terminal and board a cruise ship that'll take us along the Bosphorus Strait.

We'll hop aboard and gaze at the scenic European and Asian banks. Both embankments are lined with wooden houses, palaces, fortresses and bridges of various periods. Relax as the boat rocks on the waves and you feel the sea breeze.

During the first hour of the cruise, you'll sail past the European side of Istanbul. Admire the area’s most important landmarks including the Galata Tower, Dolmabahçe Palace, Ortaköy Mosque and Rumelihisarı, commissioned by Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II in the 15th century. You won't be able to stop taking photos!

During the tour, you'll also enjoy coffee, tea and delicious Turkish sweets. What more could you ask for? 

Floating underneath one of the city's major bridges and we'll reach the Asian Side of Istanbul. Once there, we'll disembark in Kanlıca and leave you 30 minutes of free time to explore the neighborhood. During the time of the Ottoman Empire, numerous bourgeois mansions proliferated here. In addition to seeing these noble buildings, we recommend trying the delicious yogurt served in the cafes of this neighborhood.

After two and a half hours aboard a comfortable boat, we'll end the cruise back at the pier in the port of Kabatas.
