Full description
Climb aboard a pleasure boat for a romantic dinner cruise of the Bosporus at night, and see some of Istanbul’s top attractions on 2 continents. Following a pick-up and transfer by air-conditioned, non-smoking coach, climb aboard the boat with the help of your guide. Boat staff will welcome you and present you with some authentic Turkish Delight. Then, the wait staff will escort you to your seat and take your order. By the time you sit down, your starters will be served. Choose from 3 different options for your main course, such as grilled sea brass, grilled meatballs, and grilled chicken. Once dinner is over, relax as you watch a program of folk shows, starting with katibim (a traditional Turkish melodic musical performance), and followed by Aşuk Maşuk (an imitation play of dwarfs), belly dancing, the dance of the tambourine (Gaval Regs-i), and a henna ceremony, See performances from around Turkey as the Turna Folk Team take to the floor, and marvel at traditional Turkısh Romany dances.

Great experience, very nice show

This was my first time in turkey, after looking at lot of reviews of cruises, this one was the best one to get highest reviews. I tried it and it’s really nice, the shows are beautiful, we enjoyed every minute we spent at the boat. Also the top level is very nice and easy to access to (in case you want to take pictures). The inside is clean, nice and the staff are friendly and professional. The only cons is the food, I highly recommend that you order fish or ground beef, I personally didn’t like the chicken thighs. Thanks again to everyone working on this cruise.
