At night, the view from the already amazing Bosphorus Strait is even better! The shining lights of the city, Maiden's Tower and Bosphorus Bridge provide a magical setting from which to enjoy an evening learning about the city from you guide while tasting the classic Turkish street food, "Balık Ekmek", which is a white bread sandwich with a fillet of fried or grilled fish and vegetables served with chips.
Meet your guide, who will be holding a white flag with the Istanbul Tourist Pass logo, at 7.45pm at the entrance to the Spice Bazaar. After a few minutes walk, your guide will take you to the boat which departs from the port at the entrance of the Golden Horn and you'll start your cruise on the Bosphorus, the legendary waterway of Istanbul. A trip to Istanbul is not complete without a cruise along its dazzling waters which divide Europe and Asia.
From your boat, view the incredible sights along the Bosphorus including Ortaköy Mosque, the Bosphorus Bridge and Rumeli Hisarı Fortress which is the massive fortress built by Mehmet the Conqueror in just three months as he prepared to conquer Istanbul. Also noteworthy are the 19th century mansions of the Ottoman elite and the "gingerbread palaces" and hunting lodges of the Sultans.
At the end of this unforgettable trip, you will be returned to the same port at the Golden Horn from which you departed.
