Bosphorus Cruise & 2 Continents Full-Day Tour with Lunch
This full-day tour takes you on a journey through Istanbul's lesser-known Asian side. Learn about the city's 2 continents and cruise along the strait that forms a boundary between Europe and Asia.
Upon pickup from your hotel, cross the Bosphorus Bridge, which connects the European and Asian sections of the municipal. Climb the Camlica Hills, Istanbul's highest, and view the awe-inspiring city, which seems to stretch out endlessly.
Feel like a house guest of the former Ottoman regal family with a visit to the Beylerbeyi Palace; this French neo-Baroque style building was the summer residence of the Ottoman sultans. Admire the elegant interior, with its original furniture and European and Asian porcelain, and take a stroll through the immaculate gardens before continuing to Bagdat Street, a fashionable place for Sunday brunch.
Following lunch at a Turkish restaurant, cruise on the Bosphorus, a passage that joins the Sea of Marma and the Black Sea. Sit back and take in the magnificent sights, including the Dolmabahçe Palace, the Bay of Tarabya, and the Rumeli Fortress. Complete your tour with a visit to the vibrant Spice Market, where rare spices and herbs are traded.

A great way to see both sides of Istanbul from the distance! If you have a chance to take a cruise or to rent a boat, it is highly recommended! Just beware of the weather before going out on the sea :)

Istanbul is a beautiful city full of culture. A trip down the Bosphorus is nothing less than a lesson.
