Great experience travelling up one side of the Bosporus and down the other side at sunset. Able to enjoy some Turkish pastries, glass of wine and a tub of fruit whilst taking in the sights. There’s also a professional photographer for those that want to feel like they’re an influencer (much to our amusement).

In a very nice yacht you can see other areas of Istanbul, it is a very nice experience with very beautiful views, the sunset makes it even more magical with the colors that the sunset over the Bosphorus gives it, unforgettable. It is highly recommended to wear a thick jacket.

Great tour on bosphorous, our guide was good narrator (English). Saw bosphorous bridge, ortakoy mosque, city skyline, etc. There was also a photographer on the cruise who take your pictures and if you like it then you can get it for minimal payment. Overall the tour was great, the start location was easily accessible via tram and also by bus. It was like 30 second walk from Karatos station. Our hotel was in sultanahmet and we took tram to karatos, reached in 25 mins.
