Full description

Climb aboard a pleasure boat for a luxurious cruise along the Bosphorus Strait, while dining from a 3-course menu of Turkish meze and local drinks. Sail past some of Istanbul's greatest monuments, while watching traditional entertainment along the way. Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer to the yacht for the start of your journey. Get a welcome cocktail on deck as you begin to sail as far as the Black Sea. Cruise between Europe and Asia, passing under the Bosphorus Bridge and Fatih Sultan Mehmed Bridge. See the summer palaces of the Ottoman sultans, such as Dolmabahçe Palace, Çırağan Palace, and Beylerbeyi Palace. Admire the grand Ottoman fortifications of Rumeli Castle and Anatolian Castle.

Soak up some of Istanbul’s legendary nightlife as you pass famous nightclubs, such as Reina and Sortie. Marvel at the waterside mansions and villas that line the European and Asian coasts. As you feast on a meal of typical meze dishes and mains, watch live folk dances from different regions of Turkey. Be seduced by the sensual moves of a belly dancer, and relax to international music by the on-board DJ. Back on dry land, enjoy a free shuttle transfer back to your hotel.

Exceptional they took us on board at the hotel we had a table for two by the glass we had a typical cold appetizer plus a hot one from a standstill then we set off and immediately the second course or meat or fish of your choice water or Coca-Cola sweet coffee at will various typical turkish shows then disco all in the price. The long cruise we arrived far beyond the red-lit Bosphorus bridge is a show .. for the price paid we had fun

Great excursion. Enjoyed this and it was well worth £25 each. We opted for non alcoholic drinks and no pick up option. Entertainment was good. The food isnt the best- the starters were average, the vegetarian main was overcooked unflavoured pasta, dessert was grapes and melon. The experience however was great.
