Poor communication of meeting place, who was going to meet us there I.e. group, bus etc. only on my query was a photo of a “friend” that would pick us up. Booked for 12:45 to 1pm pick up, as said departure 1.30 with lunch. We waited till 1.55 then gave up. most annoying was that the excuse was traffic, but that applied to us too, we were 30 mins early gave ourselves double time google said.

The stop at the fishing village had no purpose but to offer expensive things at a store. The town is too small and there is nothing new to learn. Aslam was very helpful and generous with my husband and I. He helped us yo accommodate our luggage in the boat, as we went to the tour directly from the airport

We were a group of four Adult friends and we really loved this tour. The boat is the perfect size for easy sailing and mingling with the other guests and the crew was really fun and attentive. They serve a good hearty lunch and you have the chance to swim at a little private beach in the beautiful waters of the Bosphorus Strait. The sites along the way were amazing and there is a rest stop at a darling local fishing village.
