For the price, amazing! Very busy noisy boat but the views make it worth it. The food and drink offering is perfect for a snack and a chai.

This was one that we booked through Viator and it was only about £8 each. It was 2 hours and excellent value taking in quite a lot of the beautiful sights at night. There was no commentary but they gave you a guide and map. The only negative was that it was not a sunset cruise

Nice tour. You can see many monuments from the bosphorus. You can also enjoy the view of the city before and after sunset. However, the boat is a little bit crowded.

Fantastic excursion along the Bospherus, good value for money best to book an hour before sunset so you can capture so epic photo's of this beautiful city.
