Unfortunately we couldn't do the Bosphorus tour that day because the weather wasn't good. The guide Binnur showed us other sights. She was very nice and we enjoyed spending a few hours with her. It is highly recommended to do such a tour, we will do the next tours with this group again. Thanks to Emre and Binnur.

Trip on the Bosphorus

The trip on the Bosphorus was fabulous and we enjoyed the Bebeleye palace. The spice bazaar was very rushed and we spent a lot of time on the coach. We went to the Asian side for the cruise and then back to. The European side for lunch and then back to the Asian side. It would be better if we ate on the Asian side and that would reduce the tie on the coach.

Best full day Bosphorus tour with lunch and an experienced local guide

We were three adults on this tour with another family of four; and it was very well organized. Our English speaking guide was the best. His knowledge and experience made the day trip itinerary work like clockwork. A driver and minivan provided was large and very comfortable. We would highly recommend this tour; and found the price to be good value!
