I did the Bosphorus Strait Afternoon Cruise and it was worth the time. There are so many buildings with nice architecture and designs along the European side. Its a must when one visit Istanbul.

We got on a hop on/off tour. Very good value. 25tl each. You get to see some palaces and castles on the route. It’s generally very lovely scenery. The bridges are quite amazing. So big.

Unfortunately, the sound system was poor and upstairs we couldn't hear any of the commentary. We did have our guide who filled us in though.
