Jeremy was a terrific tour guide. Very attentive to our needs, answered all of our questions, and made us all feel very welcome and comfortable. We did not bring jackets and were surprised how cold it got. He brought us blankets to keep us comfortable. His depth of knowledge about history and the city was very impressive. Would highly recommend this tour. Thank you!

Informative. Comfortable on the yacht. Great little trip on the bosphorus. Smaller crowd so more private than other cruises.

Well worth the price paid to get a different view of the city. Istanbul is best seen from the water, and we got to see it during the day and night as the sun wa setting. Boarding process was a little hectic as people were just trying to get in first to get the best seats. We sat in the front of the boat and Kerem made the effort to come out share the facts about the city with their sitting outside as well. He was friendly, welcoming, and shared just enough facts to be entertaining. The gentleman handing out our snacks, drinks, fruit, and desert was great as well. Do not hesitate to book! Bring a jacket it’s here cooler at night.

Definitely worth the money, our favorite thing we did in Istanbul and doing it at sunset makes it even more special, the light is amazing. Our Guide, Kerem is a lovely young man, great sense of humor and his English was perfect(which is rare in Turkey). The crew handing out the snacks was really hard working and pleasant. Communication before the trip started was really good and we kept in touch via whatsapp. At boarding everyone rushed in to get a seat upstairs but to be honest, the best places seem to be laying down at the front of the boat. Thank you very much for such an enjoyable evening, my entire family loved it
