What you'll do

No trip to Istanbul is complete without a cruise on the Bosphorus! We will meet at the pier and embark on our private motor yacht, meet our captain and start our journey on this beautiful strait. The journey will take us through the southern part of this waterway where I will tell you all about the stories of its houses, legends and Istanbul's elite as we make our way to the north. So be sure to settle in with a glass of Turkish tea or coffee as the locals do! We will cruise about an hour and a half, enjoy the refreshing breeze and the colors of the Bosphorus, set our eyes at the beautiful palaces, yalıs (waterfront mansions), fortresses and forests. You can do this experience at any time! Morning, afternoon or during the breathtaking sunsets of Istanbul. NOTE: If you book for more than 3 people, there will be a discount for the additional guests. Contact me for details!

I love Istanbul and its stories, especially all the secret ones from old times and this can't get better at anywhere else than the Bosphorus, a place that has been a home to the Istanbul's elites since the 17th century. No trip to Istanbul is complete without a cruise on the Bosphorus!

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 4 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age. You should be ok with cruising on the water. Depending on the weather conditions, the water can get a little rough occasionally, if you always get sea sick…

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

Alcohol

This experience includes alcohol. Only guests who meet the legal drinking age will be served alcoholic beverages.

What to bring

The yacht has an inner area, but you might want to bring a shawl or light jacket with you in case you get chilled by the breeze on the Bosphorus.

More tips

Please confirm the time before confirmation, beginning time can be changed depending on the availability at the time of confirmation. The cruise is 1,5 hours, can be longer upon request or if you wish to do the cruise at a different time, this can be arranged as well.
