This tour was amazing!
Well run, very good guide. Great way to both see the straight and the fortress in good time. Good value fir money. Recommended.
A relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Bosphorus cruising in style! The cruise boat was immaculate and very comfortable, with padded seats on deck. We had a lunch of chicken and meze, with soft drinks and water included (beer and wine were extra). This was taken indoors, immediately on boarding, and was well organised. We then moved up on deck. The views were scenic as we sailed towards the Black Sea .It reminded me of the Italian Lakes. We were given the option of off-boat swimming or a visit to the village for around 45 mins. On returning to the boat, watermelon was served (included) with wine (extra). There was also free coffee downstairs. On the return journey, commentary was provided, pointing out sights and places of interest along the way. I would recommend this excursion.
This tour is mostly a bus ride to spice market and a boat cruise. Very little commentary on the city or sights.
The tour was "over sold" relative to what you would do. The description stated "Pass into the open waters of the Black Sea" which was the reason we picked this trip. We asked a couple of times on the boat and were told "yes" but we could only see the new bridge (where the Black Sea begins) way off in the distance. Hotel pick-up and everything else was fine....we were just disappointed.
Cruise on river and Palace tour very enjoyable, (would have liked more historical facts), lunch bland, added fashion show and leather factory tour a sales gimmick, time should be added to spice market and lunch deleted. Would be at least 4 stars without lunch and leather factory.
the tour was great and enjoyable, the guide provided us with many useful information and we have spent a great day with him. However, there is one issue that the guide hadn't informed us (by phone) of the arrival time as he arrived by 40 minutes earlier than our tour starts!!, we had no information whether our coach has arrived or not!! we were waiting till 1 hour outside our hotel and when called him he said he has left, then we had to take a taxi to meet them at the assembly point after missing some places of visits!!
Worth doing for the great night light views. Apart from that do not expect too much. Entertainment was ok for a local experience but they could certainly do more on the dinner experience.
This cruise was amazing! With a smaller-sized group, we were able to have a pleasant lunch onboard while sailing up the Bosphorus Strait. We ended up in the Black Sea, swimming with dolphins and lounging around in the sun. I cannot speak highly enough of this cruise. This was an amazing deal.
Great view of the bay, Bosphorus and entertainment with Turkish music and dances
This was the trip I liked the most. We had a nice trip and lunch at the boat, but did not really start to talk to each other until we had gone for a swim near the Black Sea. Afterwards we had drinks at the deck and everybody was talking to someone else. I personally had an invitation to come to visit a family in Sicily.
This trip was fantastic. As promised we were fetched from our hotel on time and taken to the boat. As we motored down the river we were told what to look out for on the side and all the info. The lunch was great and very yummy. The staff were very friendly. Istanbul is a very busy city so to see all those sights on one's own is impossible so it was perfect having someone with knowledge showing us all there was to know. Will highly recommend the trip.
Awesome!! The tour guide was very good and very informative.
