Customer Reviews for Cruise Between Europe & Asia

Cruise Between Europe & Asia

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. You will also 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 suitable 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.
