Our tour with Deniz was the perfect way to spend a morning. He was very informative, and the Bosphorus cruise was gorgeous and relaxing, after having spent a couple long days touring on foot. It was a treat to view the waterfront Kücüksu Palace gardens (included), and we opted to tour inside as well for a very small additional cost - worth it.

The tour was canceled at the last moment. I had to call the local tour operator to confirm whether the tour was going on as La Vacanza Travel claimed that they were unable to do so. This was after full payment was made.

The boat was huge for a party of 40, so there was lots of space to spread out on the open deck and in the cabin below. This was good for social distancing. The views from the top deck were fantastic and the commentary very detailed and informative. We had two guides doing the commentary in turn. The stop at Kucuksu palace was very welcome and it was a very attractive place. Too bad there wasn’t time to explore the museum inside. This is a good tour, good value for money and I would recommend it.

The cruise was fascinating, the tour guide knew his stuff. The Rumeli fortress was also quite a good stop in between.
