Bosphorus Sunset Cruise on Luxury Yacht The sunset cruise was good, my friend and I had a lovely time. We met Bugra and his team at Kabatas pier.

"Bosphorus Sunset Cruise on Luxury Yacht If there were 6 stars I would give 6 stars. We hired the private yacht for my 50th birthday celebration and it was absolutely amazing. We had food, drink, belly dancing, music touring up and down the Bosphorus and a laser show onto the bridge wishing me happy birthday. This tour was exceptional, that staff, organisation and experience was amazing. Thank you for the amazing experience, it made by 50th celebrations very memorable"
