Golden Horn & Bosphorus Cruise

We'll meet at 3 pm outside the Şirvan Sofrasi restaurant in Istanbul. After meeting with the local guide, and before the Bosphorus cruise, we'll first take a guided walking tour

For about an hour, we'll explore the city and discover some of the most iconic monuments of the city, including the Hagia Sophia. Did you know that this building is considered one of the most important Byzantine constructions in Constantinople?

Then, we'll walk to the port to board the boat that'll take us to explore the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn and embark on a sightseeing adventure to visit the most outstanding tourist attractions in the city from the water. For an hour and a half, we'll sail through the Golden Horn, the oldest quarter in Ottoman Istanbul.

From the boat, we'll see iconic landmarks such as the Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace, and the Galata Tower. Afterward, we'll continue sailing along the Bosphorus, crossing its famous bridges and continue admiring other major sights of Istanbul, such as the Dolmabahç Palace, Çırağan Palace, the Ortaköy Mosque or the Rumelihisari Fortress.

As a finishing touch to this cruise along the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn, we'll hop off the boat on the eastern side of Istanbul, where we'll enjoy a beautiful sunset view

We'll get back on the boat to return to a pier located near the historic waterfront, ending the tour at 6 pm.
