A short drive will bring you to the pier to board your private boat for a panoramic cruise on the Bosphorus Strait, one of the most beautiful waterways in the world.During the cruise, you will have chance to see the traditional old, wooden Turkish villas, 19th-century Ottoman palaces, fishing villages and green hills on both sides of the Bosphorus.View the Rumeli Fortress -- the castle built by Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror in preparation for the siege of Constantinople (Istanbul).Cruise back to Istanbul and enjoy the magnificent views from the sea. Re-board your coach and return to the ship.Notes:Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair.

A great relaxing introduction to Istanbul. Having seen some of old Istanbul as the ship docked, this tour then went further into the Bosphorus giving a very good overview of the varied seaside life of the newer area of this fascinating city. And the evening timing was perfect.

Very enjoyable few hours, a lovely way to view Istanbul, and to return to the dock as the lights flicker on! Highly recommended.

This cruise along the Bosphorus was a great introduction to the geography of Istanbul. It also showed us several sights that I had heard
of but knew that I would not be able to see close up on this trip due to
time constraints. Anyone who likes boat trips should like this tour.
