Bosphorus Cruise, Istanbul

Posted by
While visiting Istanbul, we wanted to get out of the city center and see a little of the Bosphorus. While waiting outside the Hagia Sofia, we picked up a brochure from a very nice and multi-lingual guide. It turned out to be a great choice! They picked us up in a bus next to the Hagia Sofia and drove us to a dock on the Golden Horn, a body of water that divides the two main halves of Istanbul. We then got on an open-topped boat for a 2-3 hour cruise up to Bosphorus almost to the 2nd bridge. Along the way the 3 guides (all men in their 40s or 50s) divided us into language groups, and entertained us with a very well-informed and entertaining talk about the history of Istanbul and the palaces, mosques, and other attractions we could see along the way. They even provided us with Turkish tea along the way! We had a 45 minute stop on the asian side, almost underneath the 1st spectacular bridge that spans the Bosphorus, where we treated ourselves to some delicious Turkish ice cream and views of the local passers-by. Then it was back to the town center as the sun set on the Golden Horn. A great way to get out of the city streets and see another side of Istanbul! Just look for the Bosphorus Cruise and Golden Horn guides outside the Hagia Sofia!
