Full description

Spend a magical night on the water during this 3.5-hour dinner cruise departing from Istanbul. You will sail along the Bosphorus, also known as the Istanbul Straight, which is the water boundary between the European and Asian continents. After being picked up from your local hotel, you will be transported to a waiting yacht and be welcomed with a cocktail to help set the mood. As your boat moves along the waterway, it will pass under suspension bridges and alongside Ottoman summer palaces, grandiose mansions, and modern villas lining the coast on both sides. Watch and listen as you are given a show you likely won't forget, complete with music and dance. Then choose from a menu of various starters, main courses, and desserts, ready for the tasting. At the end of the night, ride home in the provided air-conditioned, non-smoking transportation and relax knowing that you will be returned safely to your hotel.

    To try

    I booked through get your guide, they were quick and helpful in responding to the booking. The cruise was very nice. When you arrive they make you sit in long tables, you have your starter and main course, the kind staff. Good food and plenty of alcohol. As a cruise to do once in Istanbul I recommend it.

    Fun but not for the Fancy

    It is a great way to see Istanbul at night which is amazing. Food was great normal Turkish fair. The cruise entertainment is mostly good and has a really fun magic show that gets the audience involved. All fun but not a really Fancy experience which shouldn't be for the price. If I would make any improvements it would be the selection of beverages but again the cruise is pretty inexpensive so you can't complain too much.

    It was a very pleasant experience. We were able to meet some traditions of Turkey around shows, monuments and food. The staff is helpful and pleasant and the atmosphere is in the spotlight! Several proposals for extra services on the boat. We recommend.
