At the end of your cruise, start a perfect romantic evening by enjoying a sunset on the water. It is an excellent way to impress someone special or just have a good time with great friends. Everyone will remember this wonderful rest.

Istanbul in the setting sun is one of the most incredible sights in the world, mesmerizing in its beauty. Aboard an elegant yacht, drinking traditional Turkish beverages and tasting canapés and fruit from elegantly arranged platters,enjoy this landscape. Marvel at ancient palaces and minarets while you sail along the Bosphorus. When it starts to get dark, a gentle breeze from the Sea of Marmara caresses your face, and the sky over the city is glowing with bright colors, tinted with shades of orange and rose.

The excursion begins at Kabatas Pier and ends at Karakoy Pier. There are still proud palaces and impressive villas located along the strait’s coasts, as if nothing has changed over a millennium. There’s still a breath of ancient Byzantium, Constantinople, and the mighty Ottoman Empire in the fresh, salty air. Have a rest and ride soft waves on the comfortable yacht while admiring the city landscapes and famous sights.

Great way to spend 2 1/2 hours during our first trip to Istanbul. There were 24 guests on the boat but there was room to spread out and the staff gave everyone individual attention. Beautiful sightseeing of both sides of Istanbul from the river. Snacks (fruit, nuts, sweets) were included in the price of the ticket. Drinks were extra. Highly recommend

Very nice sunset cruise, great way to see the Bosphorous. The organisation and communication was prompt and efficient. The yacht was modern and not too crowded. The guide and crew were attentive and informative. Snacks and drinks provided were okay.

My husband and I and our 2 teenagers took a sunset cruise down the Bosporus. Booking online was easy, we were sent the details of where to meet by WhatsApp and the boat was as described. There were a total of around 30 people on the cruise. On board we were provided with water, orange juice and some snacks including baklava, which was very nice. You could also buy alcoholic drinks. The cruise was a great way to see many of the key sights along the river and helped us get our bearings. We enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend the trip!

This was a nice sunset cruise with narrations of the scenery and buildings that we saw along the way. For myself the mosques and minarets in the sunset was worth the trip alone. I got some amazing pictures on this tour, and also had some fresh in season fruit and some amazing baklava.

The cruise was amazing, we saw the beautiful parts of Istanbul from sea side wich you cannot see and experience from the groubd. The tour guide and all staff were very kind and welcoming. This is something you need to do if you want to experience the best of Istanbul.

This would be a great cruise if you are a smoker, which I am not.. There is no designated smoking area and lots of people were smoking all over the ship, upwind from other passengers. In fact, I felt like I had smoke in my face the whole time, no matter where I moved. Even the captain and crew smoked unabatedly upwind from guests. This pretty much ruined the beauty of the experience. Otherwise the information given, and music played was fine. The food seemed okay, but I lost my appetite from all the smoking. Seriously, if you are going to allow smoking, have a designated area at the back of the boat.

Just one word - AMAZING!!!! This is a MUST HAVE experience if you are visiting Istanbul. Watching the sunset at the Bosphorus was definitely one of the key highlights of my trip. The tour was well organized, the guide explained all the places we passed by during the cruise. It did get very cold but, thankfully the team offered us blankets and tea. ;)
