A table full of condiments of the following items: Eggs (menemen), vegetables, fruits, 3 diff kinds of cheeses, special Turkish style breads, spreads, peppers, cucumbers, jellies, honey, Turkish Coffee, Juice, Tea and more!

After Breakfast we will tour around Besiktas which is one of the hippest and liveliest neighborhoods around. We will walk past Istanbul's most famous Doner Kebab stand. Its gigantic and a must see! We will have the chance to try some after the tour (optional). From there we will take a 10 min walk to the ferry station to board the Ferry Boat(Private Luxury Yacht Upgrade is Available). The total time on the sea is about 1.5 hours. We will do a full 360 cruise around the Bosphorus. The views are amazing. You will see 2 Bosphorus Bridges, old Ottoman Towers, lush green landscapes along with famous water front mansions. Cruising both the European and Asian coastline, it is one of the best experiences you can have. We highly recommend it. The Bosphorus is one of Istanbul's greatest treasures and is a true highlight of the trip. The tour ends after the boat ride. FYI: Groups can pitch in together for Private Yacht Upgrades. Thats what we do in most cases. Sea you Soon :p

What a wonderful experience! John took us to a terrific Turkish breakfast spot and then on a private yacht for a tour of the Bosporus. John's knowledge of the area was extensive and his high energy made it fun.

I’m so thankful for having a tour with John and Mert, they are exceptionally attentive and friendly! Not only I had a lot of fun on yacht but fully immersed myself in a local environment. Even after the tour we kept in touch and they would help me directions, restaurant recommendations and other things to see in Istanbul. Would love to have another our with them again!
