    Pass By: KIz Kulesi, Uskudar, Istanbul Turkey


    About 180 metres away from the shores of Üsküdar stands this tower which bears two different names. Europeans who named it the Leander's Tower thought that it was here where Leander was drowned while attempting to swim the Bosphorus to reach his beloved Hero, the priestess of Aphrodite. But, in fact, Leander never crossed here even in the legend which refers to the Hellespont, Dardanelles.

    If you want to see Istanbul from a different angle then you have to take this cruise. Great opportunity for photos. Well balanced cruise between providing short information on important sites and having time for yourself. Well with it.

    Very nice tour along the bosphorus. Guide explains very well and you get to take a lot of nice pictures. Food (nuts, baklava and fruits) were very nice. Price is a bit too high though.
