Climb aboard a pleasure boat and forget your worries as you enjoy a relaxing half-day cruise down the Bosphorus Strait. Marvel at the views of beautiful Ottoman-era mansions and the minarets of the city mosques as you sit down to a lunch of grilled chicken and typical meze dishes.

Go for a stroll on deck to soak up the sun and see the many famous sights that line both coastlines, such as Galata Tower and the immense Bosphorus Bridge that connects Asia and Europe. Sail to the Black Sea, and then make your way to the small coastal town of Anadolu Kavagi.

Drop anchor and enjoy a walk in the lush hills of the surrounding area. See the ruins of a medieval fortress and other landmarks before the cruise back to Istanbul in the late afternoon.

Very good in terms of price, the route is well programmed, in the boat there is a small restaurant with coffee, fruit and many other things. I advise you to take the circuit which starts at 6.15 pm.

It was a nice experience to cruise Bosphorus and see all the attractions from the river.

Mostly,seemed well organised. Bit of a rush to get seats on the boat when we boarded. Would have been useful for the person who you had to meet near the newsstand if they had a flag with the tour on it and not just some random something. Most people had paper tickets and the girl didn't recognise my e ticket on the phone either and it was only by luck that someone said I was in the right place.

What did not fit is the address of the meeting point. Not true and neither does Mape. That's why we almost missed it. It was already posted at the kiosk in front of Sofia but it is wrong with Mape. Please modify. Thank you

Wrong address for meeting place. Overcrowded boat. Not enough seating

Meeting point is a bit confusing because you are looking for the name of the kiosk, but this is not at the kiosk at all. The meeting point is when you stand with your back at the exit of Hagia Sofia and walk about 50 meters in the middle. Online booking was cheaper than on-site. The tour itself, well, nice to see everything from the water, but personally it annoys me to get something turned on every five minutes
