Stunning sunset views on the Bosphorus
krithika_p, Jul 2022
We were treated to some delicious snacks as we cruised the Bosphorus at Sunset. Initially we were a little disappointed as being last on the boat, we were seated in an area that did not have a clear view of the coasts. However after some moving around the boat, we were able to find a good vantage point. It was a lovely way to spend a sunny evening, and a great way to see a different view of Istanbul.

Great sunset cruise!!
Luis_V, Jul 2022
It was a great tour on the Bosphorus! the boat is quite spacious, we all felt pretty comfortable, many options to sit down and admire the views and just enjoy the ride. The crew took care of us all the time with plenty of snacks and beverages(non-alcoholic). The guide did a great job of explaining all of us the different places we were seeing along the way, even with plenty of suggestions for what else to visit during our stay.

Beautiful sun set
RANDI_L, Nov 2020
This boat ride was so beautiful! We went in November 2020 during the COVID pandemic and I know people are afraid to travel. But honestly it’s the best time to do so. This trip can have up to 30 guests I believe the description said, but because bookings were low, we had the boat to ourselves with one other couple which made it perfect! We chose the 5pm schedule so we were able to watch the sun set and it was so perfect. The shuttle they picked us up in was cool and comfortable and each person involved was very kind and courteous. They gave us bread to feed the seagulls so we could get some great shots and they even took a bunch of pictures of each of us from our phones while the sun was setting. I would highly recommend this experience if you are in Istanbul!!

A cool way to ride along Bosphorus in the evening.
anton, Aug 2022
A good tour, with snacks and fruit, and decent narration. A cool way to ride along Bosphorus in the evening. Note: Viator description is WRONG as you meet on the pier and NOT "next to tram station" as the description says.

Good way to see the sights
Namy_S, Jul 2022
Nice size boat but you need to get on quick to get a good spot on the deck. Lots of snacks and drinks offered throughout the ride and an informative guide.

Great way to enjoy this splendid city
Ansar_B, Jul 2022
The guide was clued-up about all the sites and made a point of narrating interesting anecdotes about various sites together with a wry sense of humour. The refreshments are nice and I was just hoping there would be tea/coffee as well for a caffeine connoisseur such as myself but other than that, it's a pretty good cruise.

Good cruise but need to read the fine print.
Gerardo_L, Jul 2022
The cruise was good, again the tour company gave no instructions on the pier and when the guide would be there, had to call them. They say they will pick you up but an extra cost. The guide asked like 10 times to give a good review but his attitude was I could care less. You should do it if you can it is a wonderful experience.

Beautiful Cruise
Sammy_M, Jul 2021
Transportation to/from our hotel was terrible. The cruise was beautiful. It would be nice if the snacks had a little more quality. The fruit didn’t look too fresh.

Good not great
Shweta_S, Aug 2022
The yacht tour sounds more fancy than it is - quite a basic boat ride. It was nice to have snacks and lemonade served as we cruised up and down the Bosphorous.

Missed the sunset on the cruise
John_D, Jul 2022
I am very experienced sunset traveler. We left the dock 25 mins late and missed the amazing sunset promised by the Maiden’s Tower. By the time we traveled along Bosphorus the sun was setting to our left and not much of a view. Returning on other side it had already set and yes light was pretty but not what I expected. Guide was great.
