Excellent and pleasant experience absolutely recommended for those traveling to Istanbul even just a few days. It allows you to combine the moment of dinner with something more special: the excellent service from start to finish: they took care to contact us already days in advance to agree on the time and place of the pick-up, with direct and immediate communication, even with the driver. Impeccable and on time transfer service. The frugal but typical Turkish dinner served at the right times and the show was pleasant and fun!

It was a beautiful boat cruise and we enjoyed it a lot. I was very impressed by the transportation services provided to us. I have used before too and their customer service is exceptional. The only reason I am giving 4 stars is that the entertainment was not that great

Pick up from hotel at 7pm. Appetiser and salad served on the table where we can eat right away. We can choose either one: fish, chicken or beef for the main dish. Food is fresh and delicious. Waiters are attentive and fast paced. A photographer asked for permission to take our photos and we can choose if we want to buy the photos or not for 20 tl each. After the dinner, we proceed to the upper deck to watch the shows. During the shows, they served us complimentary baklava and coffee/tea. Bakl...
