Full description

Enjoy Turkish food and entertainment on a scenic cruise with the mesmerizing city of Istanbul as the backdrop. Come across sites such as the Dolmabahce Palace, Bosphorus Bridge, and Anatolian Fortress as you watch a vibrant dance show and listen to live DJ music.

Get picked up from the European side of Istanbul or arrive at the meeting point by yourself, depending on the option chosen. Begin your experience with the Whirling Dervishes show, a spiritual ritual performed by the followers of famous mystic Rumi.

Be captivated by the Zeybek, an Aegean folk dance with heroic vibes. Admire the energetic celebration dance of Latin and Halay from Central Anatolia. Witness Turkish belly dancing and some fast-paced Roman dancing. Move on to the jaw-dropping Kafka dance performed with Caucasian music.

End the experience on a high note with a demonstration of the Black Sea's Horon dance before dinner. Taste a delicious meal of fish or grilled meat, accompanied by unlimited soft drinks. After dinner, a live DJ performance will make your night even more magical as you head back to the port.

Great experience! Pick-up time was sent out the morning of the cruise and the driver sent out a picture of the car numberplate ~30mins before. The driver was prompt. When we arrived we were seated pretty quickly. They were unable to verify that we had purchased the unlimited alcoholic drinks package (nothing on booking page nor email confirmation) but trusted our word. Food left much to be desired but was by all means ok. What really stood out was the entertainment and shows. All performers were amazing and were truly the highlight of the night. There were also photographers roaming who set up impromptu photoshoots and photos were available for purchase at the end of the night. Overall, a fun night out with a beautiful view!

They do not respect their commitment, we took a package with return shuttle except that we were surprised that the driver came on foot asking us to follow him and go up a length of 1km when we wanted to avoid this climb by reserving the shuttle. Arrival, we had to fight to have our private table when they wanted to place us anyhow. Which spoiled our whole mood during the evening and on the way back, the driver dropped us off far from our residence. It's amazing these people

We really liked the cruise, especially the traditional dances, it was so much so that we rarely went out to enjoy the night views. An observation with the intention of improving is that they took time to serve the drinks that were ordered, we opted to go to the bar instead. In conclusion I would recommend it.
