Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin your 3.5-hour Bosphorus dinner cruise with either a coach pickup from your hotel or join your guide at the port. Then, board your festive boat for a sightseeing cruise of the Bosphorus Strait and see the monument-laden European and Asian coastlines.

To help you settle in, grab a complimentary drink from the cabin bar, and then pick your favorite viewpoint to gaze out at Istanbul’s stunning monuments. See the Blue Mosque, the Kiz Kulesi tower and Dolmabahçe Palace glow gold at sunset. As dusk turns to nightfall see the last slivers of light illuminate Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, famously known for connecting the two continents.

Continue your evening cruise with traditional Turkish fare and relish unlimited drinks served from your friendly host. See the sample menu in the itinerary. As you sip your drink comfortably, the folklore show will begin. Enjoy this exciting performance of music and dancing which sheds light on the city’s Anatolian culture. As the show picks up, get ready for classic belly dancing with playful twists and shakes enjoyed by all.

Once the show is over, spend the last few minutes admiring the sparkling city as your boat arrives at the port. Next, either head back to your hotel by coach or continue your evening from here at your leisure.

Avoid this tour. This was a disappointment. We arrived with the tour company's van pick up service. Dinner was unorganized and cold. You feel like you are eating at the high school cafeteria. The dancing show starts after dinner service and you have to go upstairs. Unless you are lucky enough to get in the front row, you can see nothing. The belly dancer must needs lessons, all in all, a big disappointment and not worth the money.

Don't Miss it. Sit-down dinner -Excellent service though seating bit cramped multi course, right from Salad to Coffee. Music and Dance performances were very good with active guest participation. Well Worth the evening gets over at mid-night. The focus is not to show tour places, but to keep you engaged

I booked this tour because of the excellent reviews it had gotten. The overall experience was good and the food was tasty as well. However, they came to pick us up one and half hour late because they did not have any information of our booking even though I called and confirmed our booking a day before our cruise and they told us they'll come to pick us up at 7 pm. On the day of our cruise, I called at 7:10 pm and they said they do not have any booking with my name. I had to send them a picture of the receipt and that's when they sent a driver, who came around 8:30 pm. We were really bummed out because we thought we would probably miss the cruise but we made it on time. We were probably the last guests to arrive. Also, the pictures they have uploaded on this page are misleading. The dinner and the show takes place inside, not outdoors.

Nice tour. It really combines cruise dinner with a scenic tour, showing the main attractions along the Bosphorous Cruise. Nice dance show and good food complements the tour.
