Bosphorus Cruise

Bosphorus Cruise, IstanbulFor me the most enjoyable part of my visit to Turkey was the 90 minute Bosphorus Cruise by Turyol, which is also a ferry company. It begins in Eminonu on the other side of the Galata Bridge right next to where the Balik-Ekmek(fish sandwich) boats are. There is nobody to tell you what you are looking at, you are basically just sitting on a boat and watching the shore go by, down to the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and back the other shore. Boats leave about every hour and stay pretty close to the shore, close enough to take decent photos and see people. The cost is about 12 Turkish Lira and if it is a hot day this is a great way to find relief and see some amazing architecture as you pass palaces, mosques and the homes of some of the wealthiest people in Istanbul as well as a castle or two.

There are other cruises available including the Sahir Hatlari Cruise which is done by another ferry company and you can actually get off at the last stop and hang out, have lunch or whatever and then go back, but it takes about 6 hours. There are some smaller companies too but there were boats out there that I would not have wanted to be on. By advice is to go with the Turyol Cruise If you click on the first photo you can get an idea of what you will be seeing on the cruise.
