Istanbul Bosphorus Boat Cruise

At 10:30 am, we'll pick you up from your hotel and head to the port of Kabatas, where we'll board a cruise ship that'll take us along the Bosphorus Strait.

We'll hop aboard and gaze at the scenic European and Asian banks. Both embankments are lined with wooden houses, palaces, fortresses and bridges of various periods. Relax as the boat rocks on the waves and you feel the sea breeze.

During the first hour of the cruise, you'll sail past the European side of Istanbul. Admire the area’s most important landmarks including the Galata Tower, Dolmabahçe Palace, Ortaköy Mosque and Rumelihisarı, commissioned by Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II in the fifteenth century.

Float underneath one of the city’s major bridges and you'll get to the Asian Side of Istanbul. The Ottoman legacy is visible in the part of Istanbul. Marvel at the impressive Küçüksu Palace, the Anatolian Fortress and the oldest Military School of Turkey.  

After enjoying a relaxing day aboard a comfortable boat, we'll end the cruise in Karakoy at approximately 1:30 pm.
