Was given detailed directions to the meeting point prior. Staff were very attentive to all needs. Friendly and lively team of gentlemen guided the tour. Snacks and drinks provided. The yacht was not overloaded and there was enough room and time to enjoy the experience. Was a fun time for everyone.
Very nice evening boat ride
Michael_S, Jul 2022
Very nice evening cruise on the Bosphorus. The experience was as advertised. However, I would NOT consider the boat to be a luxurious yacht. Also, I was mistakenly expecting a dinner cruise. They do not serve dinner, only snacks (hor d'oeuvres). Reading the description of the cruise is very clear that dinner is not served, so my mistake.

Great tour! The tour guide was so informative and it felt like a luxury tour. Not many people on the yacht. My family was able to have their own private space. We enjoyed it. Highly recommend.

Very disappointed. I had missed the boat but they even refused to accommodate me on the next day. Absolutely no flexibility
Must not skip activity when you visit Istanbul!

The staff was amazing ! The boat was beautiful and clean. Great service , would definitely repeat when I visit Istanbul again.
Recommendable cruise
Ezgi_B, Sep 2021
We gave this as a birthday gift to a travel buddy. We all enjoyed the cruise. There were some snacks coming in (nuts, baklava, tea). They give blankets because it gets very windy and therefore cold. Can recommend it!
