    Bosphorus Strait
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    "This beautiful strait, sometimes spelled Bosporus and sometimes Bosphorus, was so called from the earliest ages by the ancients; from the mythology of 10, the mistress of Jupiter, having passed over it in the shape of a cow. It resembles the Dardanelles, in length, breadth and current, and like it, is a narrow separation which divides Europe from Asia; but it has many features familiar to itself. Instead of being a solitary stream running between deserted shores, it is a body of water full of life and animation, winding its way through banks covered with palaces and villages, shaded with magnificent forest trees, presenting to the eye, at every mile, a new scene of crowded existence."

Best way to watch sunset in Istanbul
Aug. 2021 • Solo
Must-do activity in Istanbul, especially during the sunset! The atmosphere and the colour of the sky during the sunset in Istanbul is amazing, and watching it in a yacht in the middle of bosphorus was something unforgettable! Highly recommended

Marvellous Evening on the Bosphorus
Nov. 2021
Despite the weather being a little cold, we spent a marvellous November late afternoon on this cruise along the Bosphorus. From the pick up at our hotel to being returned later in the evening, we cannot fault this experience.

The boat itself is quite large with plenty of room for everyone to sit inside in the warmth (it was a bit too cold to be outside). The information provided by the tour guide was exceptional, and we were provided with drinks and snacks throughout the journey.

Highlight of the evening for us was the presentation of a cake to my wife as the sun set over Istanbul, as it was our wedding anniversary.

This trip is highly recommended.

Excellent Bang For Your Buck
Oct. 2021
This cruise is a little more money than the average Istanbul boat tour, but it was very worth it. The boat is large and spacious and big enough to accommodate everyone without crowding. Lots of room to stretch out and take photos, with complimentary snacks and tea (alcohol available for an extra fee). The tour itself is beautiful and easy-going. You get to see and learn a good amount without it being intrusive. Lots of photo opportunities, and you see the sunset over the old city. Staff was very kind and friendly, and did not mind taking photos or bringing extra blankets when it got cold. Peaceful, relaxing, and beautiful, it felt personal. Highly recommended, especially for couples looking for a romantic evening. Last note: make sure you show up on time, they don't wait long for stragglers, so budget getting there a good 10-15 minutes early so you don't have to scramble.

Must do in Istanbul! Going back!
Aug. 2021 • Couples
I wish I could give more stars! 6/5! Stars!!!

We spent our honey moon on Istanbul and this was the first thing we did! We loved it so much we decided to go again before leaving!

The staff are really accommodating and professional! Helped us take photos on the boat along the bosphorous!

The tour was super informative, taking us to all the major attractions across the bosphorous while we feasted on delicious food and Turkish chai!

This is a must must do in Istanbul and we can't wait to come back and do it again!

Fantastic trip and an amazing small business
Oct. 2021 • Solo
A beautiful trip with a yacht owned by two brothers. I can honestly say that the trip was amazing. The food offered was beautifully prepared and deliis and the staff were so hospitable. No trouble was too much. They collected me from my hotel. And, when I had a last minute health problem, changed my trip from the daytime to this one. I would really highly recommend this trip and this brilliant small business.

The only boat I would recommend to my friends for Bosphoros.
Aug. 2021
I'm from New York and I wanted to be relaxed on a quality boat to see the sites of the Bosphoros. The quality of services and boats range dramatically in Istanbul and I did not want to be hearded into a cramped and crowded sketchy looking boat. Bosphorus Tour Istanbul exceeded my expectations regarding the quality of their yacht and the friendliness and graciousness of their service on the boat. Beware: Istanbul traffic can be horrendous. There were a little mishaps with their offer to get me to/from the boat trip, but if you make sure they pick you up 2hrs before launch, you can relax easily on the boat after enduring that afternoon traffic to get there. They are also very responsive thru WhatsApp +90 554 797 26 46, which was extremely helpful to me. I'd use them again and tell my family and friends to do so also when they visit Istanbul.

A must while in Istanbul
Sep. 2021
We were really tired after an early visit to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, and Topkapi Palace. This tour picked and dropped us. A luxury Yacht was waiting for us and it was a most incredible tour with live music and commentary. Highly recommended.
