This tour is of high quality and we were very satisfied with it ! The crew was very professional and the tour includes a guy that is very attentive to clients. The boat is a nice yacht. The crew provided us with blankets as it was cold outside. Even in covid conditions the crew packed the food to take away after the tour and it was a nice set of appetizers and fresh fruits. We highly recommend this tour.

Hi again, It was our pleasure to see you on our Bosphorus Sunset Cruise. We keep the cruise running even during the Covid days we take all the necessary precautions for the safety of our guests and crew. We are not allowed to serve snacks, cookies, fruits nowadays that is why we pack them and give them to our guests to take away. We hope to see you back in Istanbul when everything is normal. Best wishes,

Amazing views, nice tour.

Boat was clean and nice, but was not the one pictured. It was a bigger and older boat. There were around 15 people. We sat on the upper deck. It was perfect, there was only another couple and us. The ride was great. The snacks were good with some fresh pomegranate juice, fruit, tea. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. It was windy and a bit chilly. We were able to capture amazing pictures. Other reviews mentioned they provide blankets but they didn’t even after I asked. Also I wanted a glass of wine and they never came to offer. I asked once and was told they’ll be back but again didn’t. Overall not impressed with the service. It’s a fair price coming from the US for a boat tour. They could also improve their snacks.

Hi Paulina, Thank you for taking part in our Bosphorus Sunset cruise. As stated in the cruise description, we use different yachts depending on the group sizes. All the yachts have almost the same standards, they are luxury ones as you took. We have enough blankets for every guest on board, sorry that our crew may have neglected your request, as I am the manager, I will inform the crew to be careful in responding to requests of the guests quickly. We wish you see you back on another cruise. Kind regards,

Sightseeing from a different angle

This was a great way to see some of the sights from the water and experience the sunset, and the guide gave us the highlights rather than overloading us with information. They were generous with the snacks. Overall, I thought it was good value for money

Hi Tanya, Thank you for joining our Bosphorus Sunset Cruise and your review about your experience with Bosphorus Tour Istanbul. Our guide has good knowledge about Bosphorus and Istanbul but he just points out must-see attractions while we pass by by the water. Our guests also like to have some time at leisure while taking pictures, so our guide is good at choosing the best time to talk about the sights. It was our pleasure to see you on our sunset cruise and we hope to see you back in Istanbul again. Best regards,

Must-see in Istanbul! Perfect tour!

This was amazing!! You must go with this boat tour! I spent a long time researching them and this one lived up to the reviews!! We booked in less than 24 hours yet they still handled a special request for transportation to the boat. Erdal was so patient and accommodating. He made sure we had all the food and exactly the drinks we wanted. He even got us a sandwich! The tour guide was also excellent-- he knew when to speak and when to let us have relaxed times enjoying the views. He was a good storyteller and had great English. The boat was very nice and we enjoyed all the Turkish snacks. There was even fresh pomegranate juice. There were blankets in case we got cold. The views were incredible!!!! This tour gave me such a better understanding of the city of Istanbul and made me connect to the city. It is very breathtaking and we took so many great photos!

Dear Ivy, Thank you so much for taking part in our Bosphorus Sunset Cruise and sharing your experience with Bosphorus Tour Istanbul. You made a last-minute reservation and requested to be picked up from your hotel, which we happily provided. The city of Istanbul may seem crazy for first-time travelers, as we know that fact, as much as possible, we try to inform our guests how to get to the pier or even we pick our guests up from their hotels if requested. Our staff from the operation team to the captain, waiter, and guide are all tourism professionals and always ready to help our guests with anything they may need as Erdal did :) We are so much delighted to see your post and comments about our cruise, seeing that our guests get happy courage us to go one step further for perfection. We wish to see you back in Istanbul. Kind regards,

Tour meeting point was easy to find, the boat was well-appointed and the snacks and non-alcoholic beverages served on board were delicious. The information presented was interesting and the tour guide was kind enough to offer us a ride back to our hotel after the tour.

Dear Stanley, Thank you for taking our Bosphorus Sunset Cruise in Istanbul and also your post about your experience with our company. We believe that the sunset cruise must be as intimate as possible, that's why we run this cruise on a luxury yacht and in small groups so that our guests can really enjoy the ambiance of the moment during the sunset time while being on the water between two continents, Europe and Asia. We hope to see you back in Istanbul again. Best wishes,
