Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Dolmabahce palace

If you take a Bosphorus tour, youll pass many lavish and intriguing buildings, but the most opulent of them all, surely has to be the 600m long Dolmabahe Saray (Dolmabahce palace). It took 13 years to build and was completed in 1856, and served as the administrative center of the Ottoman Empire until 1922.
The palace was commissioned by Sultan Abdlmecid (who decided there should be a more European palace than Topkapi) and designed by Armenian architect Karabet Balian and his son Nikoos Balian. (read Balyan family on wikipedia). It is an ostentatious blend architectural styles including Baroque, Rococo, Neoclassical and modern Ottoman, dripping in luxury.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Beylerbeyi palace

Described by some as a miniature Dolmabahce Palace but without the crowds, the Beylerbeyi Saray (Beylerbeyi palace) was commissioned by Sultan Abdlaziz to act as an imperial summer residence. With 24 rooms, 6 halls, and a hamam, it would have been quite the summer home, and was also used to entertain visiting dignitaries.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: The Bosphorus bridge

The Bosphorus bridge is one of two bridges that spans the Bosphorus strait, connecting the European and Asian sides of Istanbul. It stretches from Ortakoy on the European side to Beylerbeyi on the Asian side and is sometimes referred to as the First Bosphorus Bridge.
At 1560 meters long, the Bosphorus Bridge was the fourth longest suspension bridge in the world when it opened in 1973 and was the first bridge to connect Europe and Asia since a bridge spanning the Dardanelles in 480 B.C. Today, it is the 21st longest suspension bridge in the world. In 2007, an LED lighting system was installed to illuminate the bridge at night and the computerized system is now used to create a colorful light show every evening.
While the bridge is typically closed to pedestrians, it opens each October for the Istanbul Eurasia Marathon the only marathon that crosses from one continent to another.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Rumeli Fortress

Rumeli Castle (Rumeli Hisar) is an Ottoman fortress dating to 1452. It was built by Ottoman sultan Mehmed II (Mehmed the Conqueror) in preparation of the conquest of Constantinople. The castle is situated on the shore of the Bosphorus strait at its narrowest point with approximately 660 meters. It is just opposite of Anadolu Castle (Anadolu Hisar) that is another Ottoman castle built in 1394 by Bayezid I. Both Anadolu Castle and Rumeli Castle were built by Ottoman sultans in order to prevent military and economic aid to the Byzantine Empire coming from the north, Black Sea. Thus, Bosphorus strait connects Black Sea with Marmara Sea.
Rumeli Castle consists of three large towers, one small tower, and thirteen smaller towers, which all are in very good condition. The architect of the castle was architect Mslihiddin and by the time it was built, its name was Boazkesen (Strait Cutter).

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Fatih sultan mehmet bridge

he Fatih sultan mehmet bridge, also known as the Second Bosphorus Bridge, spanning the Bosphorus strait. It is named after the 15th century Ottoman Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror, who conquered Istanbul in 1453 and ended the Byzantine Empire.
The bridge was designed by Freeman Fox & Partners, who had previously also designed the Bosphorus Bridge. An international consortium of three Japanese companies, one Italian and one Turkish company carried out the construction works. The bridge was completed on July 3, 1988 and opened by Prime Minister Turgut zal who drove his official car by himself as the first to pass. The cost of the bridge amounted to USD 130 million.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Ortakoy

The mosque which decorates many postcards of the city is right on the Bosphorous, in Ortaky. It is officially called Byk Mecidiye Camii (Grand Imperial Mosque). It was ordered to be built by Sultan Abdlmecid on the grounds of an earlier mosque.
The mosque was built between 1854-1856, in neo-Baroque style. Nikoos Balyan was the architect of the mosque, who was also the architect of the Dolmabahe Palace. Within the mosque, there are several examples of Islamic calligraphy executed by Sultan Abdlmecid himself.

    Una noche muy agradable que cubrió todas mis espectativas. Cena correcta, bien atendida y un espectáculo muy ameno.

    Den Service die Unterhaltung und die Aussicht Das Essen hat alles super geschmeckt War einfach alles super

    Die Show war in Ordnung. Essens Portion haben geschmeckt, fand ich persönlich aber zu klein. Es gab allerdings nur einen Stern, weil der Fahrer der uns zu der Tour gebracht hat, nach der Show einfach weg war. Unsere Gruppe hat dann da eine halbe Std in der Kälte gestanden und auf den Fahrer gewartet der nicht mehr gekommen ist. Das schlimmste daran fand ich, dass eine Gruppe Frauen mit Baby auch dabei war. Wir haben dann beim Boot und per WhatsApp bescheid gesagt, gekümmert hat sich aber niemand. Am Ende haben wir uns dann ein Taxi genommen und sind dann auf eigene Kosten zurück ins hotel gefahren. Dann sollte man einfach keinen Transfer anbieten. Hat den ganzen Abend versagt.

    It’s a tourist trap. Not worth it. Unless you are a fan of belly dancing the food is average. The views are great but over all not too impressive

    Nunca pense que Turquía tenía los lugares que visite. Un país lindísimo. Estambul es una ciudad muy moderna y organizada

    The Dinner Cruise was not what I expect. The food was not so nice, the service offered was poor, waiting long between meals, we r sitting at the tables like sardines , not enough eoom to move, hard to see the show as other people came in front of out tablw to take photos. At the end staff came and asked for a tip asking if you like the show to give them some money, the tip must be included in the tickets. The driver pick us up one hour late. I really want half of the money back.
