We had an outstanding evening. Every item was in point. The incredible driver who was on time and helped my mum to the bus. He navigated the tight roads and traffic with ease and grace. The boat was really lovely. The food delicious. Be ware of the photographer who prints and then sells many photos of posing. We were determined not to buy them all and he was fine. The dancing is fun. The lights are spectacular along the river and on the bridges. We were safely delivered back to our hotel full of happiness. This is an absolute must should you be visiting Istanbul
