Full description

Experience the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be in two places at once. Join a boat trip along the Bosphorus Strait, separating Europe from Asia. Depart from Istanbul by evening and admire a colorful sunset over the city skyline as you feast on delicious canapes, coffee, lemonade, and tea.

Board your boat and take in close-up views of Dolmabahçe Palace, Ortakoy Mosque, Maiden’s Tower, Bosphorus Bridge, Rumelia Fortress, and many more landmarks along the way. Listen to your guide's commentary to learn about historic sites on both European and Asian sides.

Go as far as the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and watch the sun go down, bathing the buildings in a golden haze. Taste traditional Turkish drinks and canapes as you relax and enjoy the view, before traveling back to the starting point.
