Istanbul Bosphorus Cruise and Spice Bazaar, Breeze and Beauty, discover it with Sib
I am a licensed professional tour guide and PhD candidate. I have experience in the best tourist attractions like Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Archaeological Museum, Sultanahmet Square etc. Book for a memorable tour!
A Bosphorus cruise is the best way to discover Istanbul while sipping tea and relaxing on a lovely boat. The cruise will take place closer to the coast, allowing you to see many historical landmarks as well as the natural beauty of Istanbul. The cruise will take you to two continents' coasts (Asia and Europe). At the end of the tour, I will drop you off at Egyptian Bazaar (Spice Bazaar) where you will find thousands of stores selling everything from food to gadgets, spices to apparel, and good small restaurants with reasonable local prices. I'll drop you off right in front of Spice Bazaar so that you can go shopping or wander around freely.
With so many historical sights to see in Istanbul and so little time to explore them, this event should not be missed.
Some attractions that you will be able to see during the cruise:
- Galata Tower
- Dolmabahce Palace
- Ciragan Palace
- Ortakoy Mosque
- Bosphorus Bridge
- Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge
- Anatolian Castle
- Kucuksu Palace
- Kuleli Military School
- Beylerbeyi Palace
- Camlica Mosque (The biggest mosque of Istanbul)
- Camlica TV Tower (The longest building in Istanbul)
- Maiden's Tower
- Historical mansions and more...
Services not included in the tour (transport, cruise etc) are used for this tour so a payment NOT INCLUDED of 20 € / 20 $ / 400 lire per person is required. The contribution to the guide for his service will depend on the experience at the end of the tour.
The afternoon cruise takes about two hours on the sea but the morning tours mostly finish a bit earlier. The boat have cafeteria and snack shop with reasonable prices.
This tour available in English and Spanish languages. When you make a reservation in one of them we close the other language for bookings. If some of the guests need the other language I can provide service in both (rarely happens).
