The dinner cruise was a great experience, a wonderful way to see the historical constructions of Ottoman era. The dance show is well rehearsed and expertly executed. With cheerful performers and lively staff. Food was not-too-good-not-too-bad. But the rest of the experience was great. Hotel Pickup was in time and the drop off was without hassle.

Went with a large group of colleagues. The experience was great just for being on the Bosporus but the food was slightly lower standard than expected eg over cooked meat and fish served a bit cold. There was plenty of wine and beer though. The music and dancing was fun but that would depend entirely on your cruise mates of... More

This was such a wonderful experience. So here I am in Turkey and I'm solo going to this dinner cruise. My experience at this point led me to majority of people who did not speak English (expected). In my mind I'm quite nervous because I'm thinking I'm going to be thrown at a table with strangers and won't be able... More

took an evening cruise on the bosphorus with Turnatour company. it was organized, clean, efficient and entertaining. while the dancing was not of a professionally high standard, it was still enjoyable and I would recommend it. also , at nighttime, to see the Istanbul coastline and bridges lit up is very magical. I would suggest doing a day trip beforehand,... More

Food was not value for money! Pick up & drop facilities from hotel was good. Entertainment was basic commercial quality! Worth only to see the night sights on the Bhosphorous

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
