First of all, the name of this trip is misleading. Yes you sail the Bospherous, but not the Black Sea, as implied, you are taken to the edge of the Black Sea and then return to Istanbul.The boat trip was a relaxing afternoon after the hectic sightseeing in Istanbul. The lunch served was ok, meze and BBQ chicken., but alcoholic drinks were expensive, soft drinks were included in the price. We stopped off at a little village on the way, very touristy and mostly restaurants, but we had a coffee here sat by the sea. There is an option to walk up to the Fort about a 20 minute uphill walk, some of our fellow passengers did this to find the place locked up!! The crew on board were very attentive and informative. Overall expensive for what it was.
Does what it says, "Discovery Tour", I feel the information given about the Tour should have emphasised that there is an awful lot of walking. Guide was very knowledgeable and if you like architecture then it is very good. Excellent traditional lunch. Two half day tours would have been less tiring.

Good and varied sites, enjoyed Stanley Market, although could have done with more than the 1 hour allocated. The Sanpan ride passing the Jumbo Restaurant was good. Victoria Peak was disappointing but this was due to the misty weather, couldn't see a thing!!!
We enjoyed this tour. The dinner at Clarke Quay was good. Raffles was added on to our trip and enjoyed the Singapore Sling in the Long Bar. Live music playing here, a good night.
