We departed late, therefore the city tour was pretty much made up of what we could see on the way to the spice bazaar, which was interesting to have a look through. The cruise, however, was fantastic. As with most cities, a cruise is often one of the best ways to see the main sites. However, unlike most cities, Istanbul has so much to see - it's incredible and you don't have a chance to put your camera down. Highly recommended - just for the cruise. One thing to note - for the half day cruise (I took the morning one) there is no hotel drop off. Depending on where your hotel is, we were dropped off in Taksim square for hotels in the new city - I believe the others were dropped back at the pick up point in the old city. Worth planning ahead about how to get back to your hotel !
