Istanbul Shore Excursions are the best ways to explore this city and here is the most funny way to do it!
A private firm has built some caiques (replicas of the original boats of the Sultans) with gilds and decorations.
The name of the organization is “Sultan Kayiklari” (Caiques of the Sultan).
The boats are a little kitch and serve as touristical boats but if you have limited time you can choose these boats for a quick and probably fun Bosphorus cruise excursion.
The firm operates three tours. Two of them are quick Istanbul shore excursions of up to an hour, with no stops included.

Boats for three cruises depart from different docks.
Don’t forget to make a reservation. And always check the website, tours can change seasonally..
