The pickup area is not clearly described, we could not be picked up from Besiktas. Then they reserved a seat for us inside, right by the speaker. We asked for a table for 2 outside on deck. For this we had to pay an extra 20 EUR on site. food average. The dance and this whole tourist number didn't interest us anyway. We just wanted to see Istanbul at night from the boat. And it was worth it for that.
