Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul 34122 Turkey

"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."

Peaceful , well guided, good ‘ nibbles’ friendly staff. A lovely way to round off the day. I preferred the yacht to a big boat.

Everything is as advertised. Crew was professional and the guide provided a great overview of the city and some of the major sites along the strait. You are absolutely on a (modest) yacht, get served some snacks, and alcohol is available (we did have to ask - they missed an opportunity to ask us much earlier in the cruise).

Absolutely wonderful! We took this tour on June 26th, 2022. It was very well organized, on time and efficient. All the team members were very friendly and helped with our enquiries. The Bosphorus sunset tour was just the right duration - enough time to learn some interesting historical facts , take pictures and enjoy beautiful views. And we even enjoyed Turkish baklava with fresh fruits , snacks and tea in bardak thanks to a good job from Fishe (sorry for misspelling) And many thanks to the guide who was very informative and kindly answered all our numerous questions. We absolutely recommend The Bosphorus Sunset Cruise Tour!
