What To Expect
Bosphorus is the most scenic and the most romantic part of Istanbul. It is a strait that connects the Black Sea on north with the Marmara Sea on south and a natural border between Europe and Asia. It is the only outlet of the Black Sea, which is connected to the Aegean through the Bospohorus and the Dardanelles.
Istanbul's most beautiful mansions and palaces, mosques, restaurants and beaches are located on two sides of this natural waterway. There are two suspension bridges that are illuminated in the evenings, fortresses both from the times of Byzantium and the Ottoman Empire.
The Bosphorus looks majestic in every season and is especially impressive in May when Judas trees are blooming. We will embark to our private boat at the Kabatas Pier. Upon your arrival, you will be treated to a welcome cocktail (non-alcoholic). Dinner will be served on board as your guide explains everything that you shall see.
A show with traditional performances like Uskudara Gideriken (traditional Turkish musical performance), Asuk Masuk (a play of dwarfs), Henna Ceremony (a traditional ceremony for brides before the wedding), Belly Dancing and Turkish Romany Dance will provide you entertainment on the cruise.
