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!

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.

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. Baklava is abit too sweet for my liking. The shows go on for a an hour plus and is entertaining where guests could participate to dance. At the end of the shows, every guest is free to dance. It can be quite chilly at night, so be prepared to bring your own jacket. After that they send us back to a place nearby to our hotel. Overall I find the cruise tour to be worthwhile and its a must try for anyone who come to Istanbul.

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.
