A Taste of Istanbul: Dinner Cruise on the Scenic Bosphorus

Approximately 3 Hours
Easy Activity  Meal 

Meet your guide at the pier for an evening to remember in Istanbul. Istanbul is the only city in the world that is located in both Europe and Asia. Tonight you will have an opportunity to view both sides of this marvelous city from a private boat.

Leave the port by coach and travel a short distance to the pier to board a motorboat for a cruise along the shores of the stunning Bosphorus Strait. Take in the sights as you enjoy refreshments. On the European side, you will view many palaces, old mansions, and modern villas. Watch for the first intercontinental bridge that connects Europe and Asia. Spot Dolmabahce Palace, formerly an opulent 19th-century Rococo palace, and now a museum. The boat will turn around at Sariyer fishing village to cruise back along the Asian side. On your left is gorgeous Beylerbeyi Palace -- one of the finest summer palaces of the Sultans.

Dinner will be served on board during the cruise. At the end of the evening, return to the ship, viewing the magnificent city of Istanbul by night with all the famous monuments lit up.
