A great option for seeing the Bosphorus at night, though the focus is more on dinner and dancing. I would only recommend people bring extra cash, in case a photographer offers to take a picture, and keep in mind you’re on a boat - seasickness is entirely possible, so if you don’t know how good you are on a boat, take pills just in case, and bring a warm jacket to go outside and enjoy the scenery.

Great service from all the staff, a warm welcome, great food and performances. Picked up on time by the minibus to take us to the boat and also dropped off to the hotel afterwards. The alcohol included ticket did not cover Raki. Overall a great time, thank you!

My wife and I really enjoyed the evening. If your hotel is located on the European side of the city center, free round trip from hotel and back is provided. It really was unforgettable 4 hours and one of the best attractions we visited in Istanbul. Everyone, hosts, service people were nice and considerate. Food was good and the show-excellent, dances from people of Anatolia. Special thanks to the cute young lady who among other dances, performed the belly dance. As our hotel was located downhill next to Taksim square, we had to walk up a steep hill to get to out bus to the cruise pier. (keep calm and face the geography). Driver walked to our hotel and lead us to his bus. Definitely, it was worth it - all well organized cruise.
