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.

The food was decent, big portions. All the dancers were professional and very talented. The views from the boat were beautiful. Photographers took pictures of us as soon as we were seated at our table. The pictures were stunning, be sure to take some extra cash for this. We only bought a few pictures, tho they try to sell you all of them. Overall, a definite must do!

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!

cruise's departure port is in a very central location. We walked around Sultanahmet Square and Eminonu during the day. In the evening, we reached the meeting point easily by walking. We were greeted very friendly. Our meals were very diverse, we were very satisfied. They were all quite delicious. I wanted their dance to never end. I highly recommend. You should definitely attend.
