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
