Bosphorus Cruise Tour - Palaces & Pashas:
Discover the wealth of impressive sights all along the shores in a Bosphorus boat trip along Istanbul's famous waterway dividing Europe and Asia - take in the colors and aromas of the Spice Market, the tiny Rustem Pasha Mosque, a Bosphorus Cruise Sightseeing Tour, the sumptuously decorated Ottoman Beylerbeyi Palace and the small picturesque fishermen's village of Ortaköy.
Brief Itinerary:
This tour starts after breakfast, when you are picked up from the hotel or port by our private guide. Proceed to the mouth of the Golden Horn, to explore the bustling Egyptian Spice Market of 17th century origin - a colorful bazaar heaped with spices, Turkish sweets, dried foods and much more. Then visit the beautifully tiled tiny Rustem Pasha Mosque hidden among the narrow cobbled market streets nearby.
Next we take a Bosphorus Tour Sightseeing Boat Trip * (2 hr boat ride) up Istanbul's winding straits for a chance to relax and admire the shoreline of beautiful mosques, lavish palaces and decadent villas - you'll see Dolmabahce and Beylerbeyi Palaces, Ottoman summer mansions and Ortakoy mosque, the defensive Rumeli Fortress and Bosphorus Bridge - one of the world's largest suspension bridges, all alongside passing fishing boats, yachts, huge cargo ships and tankers.
After a lunch break back on shore, we will visit the interior of the sumptuously decorated Beylerbeyi Palace, a lavish Ottoman residence on the Bosphorus. Finally, the last stop on this Bosphorus river tour will be at the picturesque fishermen's village of Ortakoy, where you can enjoy a coffee and panoramic view of the passing boats on today's tour route from the beautiful cobbled square overlooking the Bosphorus. Drop off to hotel or cruise ship port.

* Please note that the standard Bosphorus tour above uses the standard public passenger ferry boat to conduct the Bosphorus cruise section of the tour. For alternative cruise options, please contact us with e-mail or telephone for our private yacht alternatives.
