One of the most breath-taking places I've seen around the world! If the incredible turquoise colour of the water isn't enough to take your breath away, the surrounding views of the mosques and rich architecture surely will! Highly recommend a cruise along the sea and...More

Highly recommended trip on the boat to see both continents. Taking the trip with a guide for the group was extremely helpful to understand all we Hat you see and the history behind

Well, this is THE activity one needs to do while in Istanbul - to watch Europe on one side and Asia on the other side is a truly unique experience. There are plenty of possibilities to enjoy it but I would recommend using the regular...More

We really enjoyed the river cruise. It was easy to find where to go to access it and the boat was very stable on the water, great views along the river.

Ofcourse the loveliest views of all. The boats, the fishermen, the sunset, the sea gulls. The cafes and restaurants.

I recommend a short tour unless you just love to be on open water. 90 minutes is adequate, The cruise boats are comfortable. It was cold on the upper deck in April - most will need warm clothes

We went out on a late afternoon cruise. The sights are well worth the two hours on the water. Thank you

I took a tour by boat in this Bosphorus strait. I was able to see both side of Europe and Asia of Istambul. In the Europe side and the Asian side it seems to be the same developments. But then the famous church and mosques...More

Besiktas
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

it is easy, just get to know the ticketing office. We went with a private guide, just much easier, and you can request the sites you wish to see

We had a simple tour, no stops on the way - departure from a pier between Halic and Eminonu. It was 15 Turkish lira per person, not crowded and very nice cruising speed, so we can enjoy the view. There were people inviting... More
