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.

  • Selection of 10 seasonal appetizers
  • Seasonal salad

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This cruise was really good and it really worked. We were picked up from the hotel as usual and taken to the ship. The ship took off and we went sailing. Then came dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were then able to go up and sit on top of the ship and watch a live Turkish and belly dance performance. The belly dancer picked up someone from the audience to dance with. We were cracking up laughing all night. The only thing I had reservations about was that it was to crowded. Having this much people on board can be to much. Regardless, I highly recommend this trip.

excellent food and great show

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was the most fun I have ever had on a night boat cruise. Mainly entertainment with a little history with surrounding building due to main focus is on great food and entertainment. It is beautiful to see the building and bridges all lit up at night. Also it is neat how some of the buildings/bridges change different colors. Everything is inclusive. Unlimited alcohol. Well worth the price. Met the owner who is very nice and very involved with making sure workers and everyone is getting what they want. A must see!
