This was a very good cruise in the Bosphorous Strait. The food and wine was great as was the bell-dancing show. The driver delivered us to the boat right on time and picked us up and delivered us back to our hotel. It was great.
The food was great and it was entertaining. Met a nice couple from USA and had a nice conversation and evening
This dinner and belly dancing cruise was ideal for my family of four, with two sons in their early twenties. We were collected from our hotel and taken to the river to board. The cruise was nice but just about half an hour too long. The three course meal was ok with the drinks but do not expect a high quality menu. The food staff were polite but they were always in a rush to get the food out. We liked the variety of Turkish food provided in the entree but the main dish was not as good. The entertainment was very good and the dancers engaged many members of the audience. Everyone had fun. The views at night were spectacular and many great photos to be taken. I would recommend the cruise as long as you are prepared to accept a lesser food selection. Overall pretty good.
This was a nice dinner cruise and the Belly Dancer had amazing control over her body. We had a 3 course dinner which was an appetizer plate, a choice of fish or chicken (both were very good) and fresh fruit which was served during the belly-dancing/cultural show. I would recommend taking a coat or shawl for the show. You eat dinner on an enclosed deck but then go upstairs in the open air to watch the show. As the boat is going somewhat fast when you get up on deck, it is chilly. There are also capes/shawls you can buy on board if you want to. However, once the show begins the boat is going slower and it is not as cold. In summary, this is a worthwhile excursion and a nice way to spend time on the Bosphorus.
The cruise was pleasant and the food was good as well as the entertainment. It's a great way to see the city by water at night. Despite the picture, all eating is done inside which was a bit disappointing. The transportation to the cruise was late and we just got there on time. Overall it was well run and I would recommed it to travelers to Istanbul.
Even in the rain, it was a lovely outing. We enjoyed the meal and the performers were talented. Cruising the Bosphorus was very romantic - a great way to finish off our trip to Istanbul.
Nice pictures, but boat not at all like them. Sandwiched into long tables for dinner. Insufficient space to watch the entertainment. Food mediocre. Pickup/Dropoff was fine. Cruise was very nice.
well the pickup took long enough about 2 hours. And food/dinner was fine but at that price ? Not worth it
Terrible. Terrible. Don't loose your money. It is very expensive for what you have. It is too long!!!
They put you on a big table for 12 people and you have no space to move your arms. I tough I would have a nice dinner with my family but all of a sudden you have a lot of guests together. The drinks are ok but the food is far of something special. Ok, if you are one of the guys that is looking for a lady dancing around you and almost sitting on your legs, this is the place, otherwise spend your money and time on something else.
