Great way to see the city, didn’t go into the Black Sea, but close enough to see it... great opportunity for diving off the boat on the Asia side.

Description

Put your stay in Istanbul on cruise-control with a luxurious afternoon cruise along the Bosphorus Strait and the Black Sea. This sightseeing spectacular will take you sailing between two continents, and includes a mouthwatering lunch of Turkish delicacies while you soak up the city's iconic landmarks and beautiful scenery.

Marvel at the Baroque elegance of Kucuksu Palace, and the impenetrable-looking Rumeli Hisari as you cruise on by.

After exploring the fortress, savor a delicious Turkish lunch. Think richly spiced grilled chicken and traditional meze - vegetarian options are also available!

As you approach the northern end of the Bosphorus Strait, the tour will continue into the Black Sea, and stop at a beautiful cove on the Asian side where you can soak up the sun and even take a dip in the water.

A final stop at the sleepy fishing village of Anadolu Kavagi will let you stretch your legs, or grab an ice-cream or waffle in the sun before the journey back to Kabatas.

I was really surprised at the quality of this trip. The lunch was basic but tasty.
The drive to the pick-up was quite long and started some way up the Bosphorus, but we were dropped off at Kabatas so saw a lot on our return.
The guide had great English and was very knowledgeable and friendly.
I was really pleased and surprised to get a free pick-up and drop off in the price.
For what we paid, this was an absolute bargain.
I'd advise you to take your swimming costume. The water was lovely.
Try a fish sandwich at Anadolu.
Be aware of the beer prices. 😉
