Afternoon Bosphorus Cruise with a Stopover on the Asian Side
Istanbul is often referred to as the bridge between the East and the West, being split by the Bosphorus into the European side, Avrupa Yakası, and the Asian side, Asya Yakası. Enjoy the view of both at once, as you sail the Straight on this luxurious yacht tour.
Departing from Kabatas Pier, you will cruise for 2.5 hours, sipping traditional Turkish coffee or tea with lokum. The point of view from the water certainly adds charm and gives you a different perspective, as you pass suspended Bosphorus bridges, wooden Ottoman villas, classy neighborhoods Ortakoy and Bebek, and historical sites like Topikapi Palace, Blue Mosque, the Leander Tower and the medieval Rumeli Fortress.
Learn about the history of these sites and hear the stories and anecdotes from your local guide. Make a stop at Kanlıca, the picturesque district on the Asian side where the nobles and wealthy build their mansions on the waterfront. Taste the creamy and thick Kanlıca yogurt, served with powdered sugar, honey or jam.
