What you'll do

We will meet at the pier and embark on our private motor yacht, meet our captain and start our journey on this beautiful strait. The journey will take us through the southern part of this waterway where I will tell you all about the stories of its houses, legends and Istanbul's elite as we make our way to the north. So be sure to settle in with a glass of Turkish tea or coffee as the locals do! We will cruise about an hour and a half, enjoy the refreshing breeze and the colors of the Bosphorus, set our eyes at the beautiful palaces, yalıs (waterfront mansions), fortresses and forests.

You can do this experience at any time! Morning, afternoon or during the breathtaking sunsets of Istanbul.

NOTE: The experience is 90 minutes. You may request a private cruise if you wish start your cruise at a different time or if you wish to do a longer cruise.

Hello!
I am a travel advisor and a professional tour guide who has been working in a travel industry since 2008. I truly enjoy being a host to show travelers beautiful Istanbul from all aspects and have them see how locals live their lives. I love Istanbul and its stories, especially all the secret ones from old times and this can't get better at anywhere else than the Bosphorus, a place that has been a home to the Istanbul's elites since the 17th century.

Where you'll be

We will be on a beautiful private motor yacht where we will enjoy the views of the Bosphorus with a luxury. We will see all the “yali”s -waterfront mansions- , palaces, fortresses and forests closely from the water and you will hear many stories of the “yali”s, palaces and the neighborhoods of the Bosphorus. Cruising on the Bosphorus is the best way to see the Istanbul!
