Gaze over Europe and Asia in one journey on this 1.5-hour guided cruise on the Bosphorus in Istanbul. Settle on a spacious boat and view the city’s Asian and European sides as your guide shares facts and tales about the sights.

  • 1.5-hour guided Bosphorus cruise in Istanbul
  • Sail along the Bosphorus between Europe and Asia
  • See top Istanbul sights including the Dolmabahçe Palace and Rumeli Fortress from the water
  • View the Bosphorus Bridge, Asian-side Ottoman villas, and more
  • Learn about the sights via onboard commentary from a guide
  • Round-trip minivan transport from central Sultanahmet to boat pier
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
Meet your guide in central Sultanahmet, and hop inside your air-conditioned minivan to travel to the departure pier on the Bosphorus.
The Bosphorus connects the Sea of Marmara to the Black Sea, forming a natural border between Europe and Asia, and making Istanbul the world’s only city to straddle two continents. A cruise along the strait offers a unique opportunity to sail between two continents, viewing their waterfronts and skylines in one scenic journey.
Find a comfortable spot on your spacious boat and enjoy your first views of Istanbul from the water as your vessel pulls away. Then, sail along the strait, enjoying the offshore breezes and passing sights such as the Dolmabahçe Palace, Beylerbeyi Palace, Ciragan Palace, and medieval Rumeli Fortress.
Along the way, listen as your guide shares background about the landmarks, and points out other sites of interest that you might otherwise have missed. Gaze at the grandiose yali — wooden Ottoman mansions — along the Asian waterfront — and drink in views of the Bosphorus Bridge, and dome- and minaret-studded skyline of the European side.
After 1.5 hours on the water, dock back at the pier, and finish with a drop-off at the original Sultanahmet meeting point.
