After meeting your guide at your hotel for a pickup in Istanbul, take a short ride to Rumeli Hisarı Fortress for your Bosphorus and Black Sea cruise. Learn about the history of this commanding castle that overlooks the slimmest section of the Bosphorus. Then, snag several selfies before you board your boat for a tasty lunch.
Sit down and indulge a meal consisting of a variety of delightful Turkish meze and grilled chicken. Then, grab a refreshing beverage and stroll out to the deck to soak up the sun and ambiance of Istanbul from the Bosphorus Strait. Gain insight into the many famous sights that line both the Asian and European coastlines. As you cruise, see Galata Tower and the immense Bosphorus Bridge that connect the Asian and European continents. During the cruise, snacks are available to munch on at the bar.
After your boat has traversed the Strait, enter the Black sea and voyage a short distance to the small coastal town of Poyrazköy. Here, your boat will dock and you can spend some free time unwinding with a swim or a short promenade around the verdant hills surrounding the area. Remember to bring sunscreen, good walking shoes, and a swim suit. In the event the weather is too cool for a swim, your boat will change routes slightly and stop at Anadolu Kavağı. Alongside your guide, admire remnants of this medieval fortress.
Hop back aboard your boat and return to Istanbul arriving in the late afternoon. Disembark at Kabataş port and meet your coach for a comfortable ride back to your hotel where your tour ends.
