Istanbul Shore Excursions:
4) Private Boat Cruises

Istanbul Shore Excursions are the best ways to explore this city. Cruising with a Private Boat is one of the options.

Not all Istanbul shore excursions fit your plans..

If you don’t have all day for Bosphorus and you want to have at least a glimpse of it, there is an option for you; a private Bosphorus boat tour.

Tours are on small boats (60 to 100 people), each with a small sun deck.

Quick overlook to these cruises:

Down side: They only travel as far as "Rumeli Hisarı".

Best part: The boat travels very close to the shore.

Beware: Some of them play pop music very loudly. Ask before you buy your tickets.

Be prepared: Buy 2-3 bottles of water and some snacks before you get on board.
