I spent a lot of time online trying to figure out how to purchase Turyol Bosphorus cruise tickets in advance. Finally decided to try Tiqets, and was very glad I did. The instructions I received cleared up some of the fuzzy info I had been finding about where to locate the ticket booth. The only thing I would suggest is to make clear that the Turyol Bosphorus Cruise ticket booth is separate from the main Turyol office.
