What connects Europe and Asia? The only correct answer in Turkey is the Bosphorus. This strait connects the Black Sea to the Marmara Sea and is the main transportation and tourist artery of the city. It is the only place where you can see the main attractions of both the European and Asian parts of Istanbul to their full extent. And this is exactly what the classic sightseeing tour has to offer. In just two hours, you will have time not only to admire the most spectacular panoramas of the city and immerse yourself in its atmosphere, but also to carry out the sacred duty of every traveler visiting Istanbul — to fall in love with the city.
To admire beautiful views of Istanbul we set off from the Eminonu area. If you have booked a transfer, the car will take you directly to the meeting point. If you plan to get there on your own, you should meet the representative 15 minutes before the beginning of the tour at the newsstand, which is located between the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Once all guests are gathered, you will be taken to the pier and finally board the boat. The cruise begins with the Sea of Marmara and then the boat will enter the Golden Horn Bay and pass through the most picturesque part of it. We will go along the left bank of the Bosphorus past the mosque and the Dolmabahce Palace towards the Bosphorus Bridge. Then we move towards the Black Sea and reach the bridge of Sultan Mehmed Fatih. The boat will turn around next to it and go along the opposite bank of the Bosphorus to the point of departure.
You can enjoy the classic excursion with an audio guide on a spacious two-deck motor boat. Its upper deck has several open viewing points with an awning, and on the lower closed deck there are places for guests, cafe and bar. During the whole trip, you can freely move around the boat and enjoy the city views from different angles.
