If time permits go on the longer tour (5-6 hours) but if not, be sure to go on the short tour at least. The views from the sea are great and there are many interesting sights along the way.

When so many countries are separated from each other, thanks to such a physical treasure, you should not miss it. Almost anything happens and crosses these waters everyday and it's very interesting to travel across it and to visit each of it's soares.

Whether you coming or leaving Istanbul, you need to do the cruise. It is a good starting point or nice relaxing end to a full tour of the city.

Truly amazing. I am stunned. The Bosphorus Strait, along with its two significant bridges crossing from the European side of Turkey to the Asian side, are a truly wonderful view for those interested in photography and natural views. Lots of mountains and greenery!

In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for
space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green
parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather
wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of
opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For
folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a
constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s
waterways are to its rich history, there's the
