Istanbul Bosphorus Guided Cruise and Spice Bazaar, Breeze and Beauty
I am a licensed professional tour guide and PhD candidate. I have experience in the best tourist attractions of Istanbul old town like Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Sultanahmet Square etc. Book for a memorable tour!
A Bosphorus cruise is the best way to discover Istanbul while sipping tea and relaxing on board of 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.
For the quality of the tour, we have a limit of bookings.
Please write me if you want to join a tour closed for bookings.
We also offer private tours.
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

The cruise takes about two hours on the sea. The boat is big, have cafeteria and snack shop inside.
This tour (cruise) is a bit different than my other walking tours. Since we have expenses, it is assumed that you pay at least €20 per person (for guide, boat, etc.) based on satisfaction. The licensed guide is doing this job professionally.
IMPORTANT: This is a guided tour and will cost you more than a solo cruise. Please consider this before booking. We have limited seats. You can write me for any questions before booking.
If you are a group speaking English, Spanish, Arabic, Persian or Turkish please contact for available times for a tailored tour.
