Very good and efficient food service. Dancers were entertaining and energetic. Lots of opportunities to take pictures of lighted up bridges and scenery which were beautiful. Food wasn’t that great but acceptable. Music was a mix of genre to meet needs. Transfer service to and from was excellent. Overall a really fun night!

Really enjoyable experience! The transport was very well organized, the boat was clean and big. The dinner was OK, but the main point was about seeing Bosphorus at night and that we did. We were seated with some great people from all over the world and had a great evening on the cruise! Definitely one of the highlights of our stay here

The tour was supposed to start at 8:00 p.m., our pick-up service was way too late. We only got to the boat after 9:00 am, stressed about eating because the show was about to start. It was supposed to be a 4 hour tour, for us it was just 2.5 hours. Best to book locally.
