Enjoy the romantic image of sunset over Istanbul on this boat trip down the Bosphorus. Experience unforgettable views of the beautiful Turkish city in its best light.

Sunset Cruise on the Bosphorus

The tour meets in the Istanbul port, at Kabatas pier, where you'll climb aboard a boat ready to cruise on one of Turkey's most important waterways. Set sail down the Bosphorus for a magical evening enjoying captivating views of this fascinating city.

Throughout your cruise, see how the skyline of Istanbul is illuminated purple, orange and red in the light of the setting sun. Admire iconic monuments including the Maiden's Tower, originally built in 1110 on a tiny islet in the Bosphorus strait and shrouded by myths and legends; the Bosphorus Bridge, which connects the European and Asian sides of the city; and the majestic Baroque-style Ortakoy Mosque located on the waterside. 

Learn all about the landmarks you pass on your boat trip and their fascinating history thanks to your professional English speaking guide.

To complete your experience of Istanbul at night, you'll also be served traditional refreshments during your cruise. Enjoy a cup of sweet, chilled sharbat, a typical Middle Eastern drink made of fruit or flower petals, accompanied by Turkish canapés

You'll finish your unforgettable sunset boat tour of the Bosphorus at your original port of departure.
