This cruise is a wonderful way to see Istanbul's major sites and should be added to anyone's itinerary when visiting the city. The boat itself is the perfect size, making the cruise feel intimate yet comfortable. Guests are provided with small snacks and drinks - with wine/beer is available for purchase upon request - but definitely recommend bringing your own bottle of wine if you prefer. Sinal and his team were extremely helpful from starting to finish (we opted to be picked up/dropped off from our hotel. The tour hits all of the major sites and your given enough information to know what you're looking at but also enjoy your own conversation on the cruise.
Tour the Bosphorus Like a Boss
Alright alright alright! You're much anticipated review here. Listen folks, the tour is cool. It is just the right length, and in summer weather a light jacket is the max you'll need (slightly windy). Easy to hang out, very calm on the boat (despite choppy-looking waters). The tour guide hits all the highlights, which is cool, and Bosphorus sunset is good for photos. Seeing the Asian side, and far up and down the coast, is best seen from a boat so also a plus. Finally, I recommend you bring your own (white) wine. It's a boss move to fit the boss cruise. They pick you up from the hotel, and take you back (also clutch and seamless). That is all.
Very nice cruise, good guidance and boat! It was easy to find where to meet and it started on time. Nice appetizers were served and the guide explained historical facts from the area.
This cruise is fantastic. It’s really a wonderful way to take in The city and to see many of the popular sights: Dolmabache palace, Galata Tower, Maiden’s Tower. The boat is the perfect size so the tour feels intimate and special and it’s full of sweet treats: baklava, tea, fruit, etc. Also, I have to give a shout out to the staff who went above and beyond and waited for my brother and I as we were late on the tram. Any other tour would have left us behind, but they kindly waited as we ran to try and make it. Would highly, highly recommend. It was a great way to cap off our trip!
Great Ending to a Great Day in Istanbul
After a full day walking tour we hopped on this sunset cruise to experience Istanbul from the water. The crew was incredible, the food was really tasty and just the right amount. The commentary was informative but not overwhelming so we could enjoy the sights and sounds while knowing the basics. Extremely relaxing end to our busy Istanbul day.
It was amazing!
I booked this for myself and my wife whilst visiting Istanbul and really enjoyed it. I wouldn't normally book something like this for myself but thought my wife would enjoy it. She loved it and so did I. I would recommend anyone to do this when visiting Istanbul, it's worth every penny and a great experience!
Great way too see Istanbul Europe and Asia
We chose this tour because we wanted a quite trip up the Bosphorus straits. It was really enjoyable. We received 1-1 treatment from our Guide Sinan was who was very knowledgeable.We received things to nibble and a non alcoholic local drink. The Yacht really was luxury. A perfect end to our trip to Istanbul. Well done Sinan and his team.
Very good experience
I recommend this cruise to everybody. Good organization, our departure was in time, and we were back also at a reasonable time to the Galata Bridge area, where a lot of restaurants were available for dinning. The explanations provided enough information, the sightseeing of both sides of the Bosphorus very good. We really enjoyed the cruise, included the snacks served during the trip. Additional drinks also available by demand, including beer or wine. Definitively, it is worth to do it.
Amazing Trip Totally Worth the Money!
Really enjoyed this trip, it was just as advertised! The staff was very friendly and helpful, even organized a birthday surprise for us including singing the song and a birthday cake. We really enjoyed our time on the Yacht, it was luxurious and comfortable. The guide was very good at explaining the surroundings, and they served fresh fruits, beverages, as well as Turkish Desserts. I would strongly recomand this Yacht Trip to see the Bosporus Canal in a Luxury Style!
SUNSET LUXURY YATCH CRUISE
I would recommend everyone to go for luxury yatch sunset Cruise. Bosphurus looks beautiful during the sunset and also the yatch is amazing. The crew took a great care of us. The guide is fluent with many languages English, turkish, Spanish. Desserts, nuts, refreshments are continuously served throughout the tour. It's a 2 hour tour with very limited people around 20.
Booked this trip last minute, all good and confirmed straight away. Took a little while to locate the guide at Dolmabahce as there were no exact spot mentioned but was glad that he took the effort to locate me. Guide on the cruise was informative but would be better if she used a microphone since it was very windy and a little bit noise from the cruise so sometimes some of us couldn’t hear her clearly. Appreciate that staffs bring some of us to taxi and metro station after it ends.
Amazing, unforgettable romantic experience.
I was looking for a private experience in Istanbul to celebrate a personal event and I booked a yacht with dinner for two, at sunset. The booking was very easy online, the guide was very friendly and helpful in giving me the details for the trip and facilitated the yacht for only the two of us. We communicated easily in English, via WhatsApp. The actual trip was amazing, we enjoyed the stunning view of the European and Asian side of Bosphorus, with beautiful buildings, palaces and bridges along the way, at sunset. The thing we liked the most was the private setup and the friendly guide, who really tried to make us feel good and even played our favorite music on the boat. I really appreciated it. I fully recommend this trip, is a unique, priceless experience.
