Combinez une croisière touristique sur le détroit du Bosphore avec une visite du palais de Küçüksu ou de la forteresse de Rumeli lors de cette fabuleuse excursion de 2 heures et demie à Istanbul ! Avec un guide à bord, apprenez tout sur la ville et profitez, depuis l'eau, d'une vue imprenable sur le palais de Dolmabahçe, la Tour Galata, le pont du Bosphore et bien plus encore. Servez-vous en snacks à bord et remettez ensuite le pied sur la terre ferme pour une visite de la forteresse de Rumeli (le lundi et le jeudi uniquement) ou du palais de Küçüksu, l'un des joyaux cachés opulents d'Istanbul.
The guide was enthusiastic and checked with everyone. I hoped we were able to roam the Rumeli Fortress as we were only allowed on a certain viewing point which does not provide appreciation of the beauty of the fortress. I am giving this a four because of the guide.
The boat trip was enjoyable and informative with the right amount of commentary. However we did not visit Kucuksu Palace as advertised on a Saturday, but instead visited Maiden's Tower which is basically a restaurant in a tower on a very small island. One of the reasons for booking this particular trip was the landing on the Asian side of the Bosphorus, so we were disappointed. There was no refund of the entrance fee to Kucuksu Palace which was included. At the end of the boat trip we got the Mamaray metro to the Asian side of Istanbul for 5TL.
First and most importantly the river is beautiful with lovely old buildings along the shoreline to photograph including palaces. Important too there were two staff smoking in and around the enclosed space downstairs where the tables were and serving behind the food and drinks area. There is a sign 'no smoking' on the door. The toilets are in a disgusting state and should be replaced. The tap was black also the toilet inside black too. The floor was soaking wet! If you expect decent people to recommend your tour you should address these problems. The coffee was not drinkable although it was from a packet which are usually fine, it must be the water they use or what they boil it in? However we enjoyed the river trip but were very disappointed with the facilities. Cannot recommend your choice of boat for this trip. IBO should sort these problems soon as possible.

We were the first to be picked up in the bus we were in the old town so made a 45 minute trip around Istanbul which was great from a seeing other hotels perspective and perpetual astonishment at the bus driving acumen of the driver in small Istanbul streets before we got on the boat. The boat trip itself was lovely, relaxing and and the guide on the boat was very informative. Highly recommend this part! I might stay on the boat rather than doing the Kücüksu Palace Tour - it was very cold and windy when we were there and it's not so much Turkish as European. Lovely to be out on the water.
Good tour. Only concern is that there was not drop-off and they leave you at the Bazaar to take a taxi, which is difficult in Istanbul due to the taxi drivers try to rip you off with ridiculous prices.
We weren't told prior to arriving on the cruise that we would not be visiting Rumeli Fortress. Instead, we went to the Maiden Tower. We would have appreciated being advised that this would not have included the visit to Rumeli Fortress prior to arriving on the boat. The day before, we went on a similar cruise. It is a very pleasant ride and gives you a wonderful view of the city, but had we known we weren't going to visit Rumeli Fortress, we would have spent the day on our own visiting other sites.
It was as I expected, but the coordination for the pickup was not good. I was given a phone contact number but could never got someone in the other line. Fortunately the staff in the hotel was smart enough to connect me to the tour company.
