    1. Bosphorus Sunset Cruise on a Luxurious Yacht

    A sunset on the water is an amazing way to end your cruise experience and an equally amazing way to start your evening. Whether it is to impress that special someone with a picture-perfect moment or just to appreciate a great time with great friends, a sunset cruise is something everyone will remember.  Few places in the world are as mesmerizing as Istanbul in the setting sun. Aboard an elegant yacht, drinking traditional Turkish drinks, and nibbling on canapés and fruit from tastefully arranged platters, glide by palaces and minarets as you sail along the Bosphorus. When dusk sets in, a soothing breeze arrives from the Sea of Marmara and the sky over the city puts on a colorful show, tinted with shades of orange and rose. The muezzin calls from a towering minaret. Majestic palaces and villas standstill along the strait’s banks, as if nothing has changed over a millennium. Breathe in t...

Best decision I made! The tour was fantastic; I believe that there is no better time during the day to do a Bosphorus tour than this period, 6.30-8.30 pm. The guide Haluk was an incredible man who knows the history very well but presents it objectively. His level of English is super comprehensive. Always pick this type of tour instead of the crowded boat because you get one of a kind experience for not much of a price difference.

Actualy it was the best decision. All the crew was amazing, we learnt a lot from the guide because he was born in a bosphoros near site, good food and treats, great iate and they prove us that Istanbul is better seen at the night from bosphoros. For the price, i would always choose this instead of a public or big bosphoros trip. Amazing memory and experience. Highly recommend!

Wonderfully organized walk with amazing views !!! I recommend this particular variant of a trip to the Bosphorus to everyone!

Amazing experience and the snacks provided were absolutely delicious. Best tour of the Bosphorus that is available.

The greatest trip that you can buy! Our guide Haluk was a very nice and funny guy! I recommend this to everyone!
