What You Can Expect

Istanbul Bosphorus Cruise with Dinner and Belly-Dancing Show

Istanbul Bosphorus Cruise with Dinner and Belly-Dancing Show

Either start your evening with a hotel pickup by luxury coach, or meet your guide at the port for your dinner cruise. Hop aboard your sightseeing boat and cruise out into the Bosphorus – the strait that splits Istanbul onto two continents.

Help yourself to a welcome drink from the on-board bar, and then sit back and enjoy the enchanting scenery. As the sun sets on the Bosphorus, admire Istanbul’s famous relics from the comfort of your window-side seat, seeing highlights like Dolmabahçe Palace, the Blue Mosque and the Kiz Kulesi tower. Watch out for Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and gaze in wonder at the iconic structure that connects Asia to Europe.

As you cruise through the waters around Istanbul, your host will serve a traditional Turkish dinner with unlimited drinks. See the Itinerary for a sample menu. Sit back and watch a folklore show to give you a taste of Anatolian culture in the city. The vibrant floor show features live music and, of course, belly dancing – the ancient traditional dance enjoyed by Turks of all ages!

After 3.5 hours of cruising up and down the Bosphorus, your tour finishes back at the port. Continue your night from here on your own, or return to your hotel by coach.
