To me, the Strait is the most beautiful aspect of the city which can offer everything to everyone, from colorful traditional landmarks around it to the excited birds following ferries for “simit”. Try any restaurants around it like Banyan Restaurant and you’ll have the time...More

I went in a colder month, and took a half-day tour of the Bosphorus. Our boat traveled to the Black Sea. It was a bit too cold...so I am happy I did only the half day. The interesting parts are all in Istanbul, but we...More

For around a few pounds we went on board the big ship docked in Eminonu which appeared to leave every half an hour. The trip took a couple of hours. Coming back at sunset time was lovely.

Allows you to view multiple historical sites i.e. Topkapi palace, Sulemaniye mosque from the strait. Our cruise was approximately 1.5 hours long and cost 10Liras per person (same price for adult and child). I thoroughly enjoyed it but the rest of the family got bored...More

Thought this would be a bit dull but was quite the opposite. The day was gorgeous and the boat comfortable. The man in the bar/ cafe sensibly came round with ready made panini and fresh orange juice and later coffee and tea. No time wasted...More

With nearly 5 euros, you have to see Bosphorus!! Catch the boat in the evening and the colours of the sky combinated with the bridge, make something that will remain in your mind with nostalgic feeling!!

interesting tour of the bosphorous strait. Would be good if there were a guide I think as lots of places of interest along the way. You can have tea (Cay) and snacks as you tour. Good for a sit down tour

Cruising on bosphorus is unique. It takes back you in tome. You plus see the old houses along the water front.

The perfect boundary between the European and Asian sides of Istanbul and the best way to see this throbbing metropolis, whose streets can feel clouded and polluted. We had a luxury boat to ourselves and I can recommend sitting at the bow for the best...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

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

Don't fall for the boat company thing unless you want to just drive around the water. When we went, we went specifically to visit the princess island, we took the tram to the dock and got tickets. It was a really nice ride... More
