Full description
A sunset on the water is an amazing way to end your cruise experience and an equally amazing way to start your evening. Whether it is to impress that special someone with a picture-perfect moment or just to appreciate a great time with great friends, a sunset cruise is something everyone will remember.  Few places in the world are as mesmerizing as Istanbul in the setting sun. Aboard an elegant yacht, drinking traditional Turkish drinks, and nibbling on canapés and fruit from tastefully arranged platters, glide by palaces and minarets as you sail along the Bosphorus. When dusk sets in, a soothing breeze arrives from the Sea of Marmara and the sky over the city puts on a colorful show, tinted with shades of orange and rose. The muezzin calls from a towering minaret. Majestic palaces and villas standstill along the strait’s banks, as if nothing has changed over a millennium. Breathe in the legacy of ancient Byzantium, Constantinople, and mighty Ottoman Empire with each breath of fresh salty air. Kick back and ride gentle waves on the comfort of a yacht. Watch the city and its iconic landmarks pass by, which is the perfect way to unwind after a busy day of sightseeing. The tour starts at Kabatas Pier and ends at Karakoy Pier.

The contact on site speaks very correct English and Spanish, The boat is very beautiful, the crew is very friendly, COVID barriers are respected. They offer tea and a very nice little aperitif. The tour lasts about 2h30, the guide explains in detail what we see, so it was very pleasant.

I liked the excursion very much Excellent value for money Excellent service (we met, on the yacht we were constantly treated to all sorts of snacks, when it got colder, they took out blankets, the guide constantly shuttled between groups of passengers and talked about the places that we sailed) We sailed along the coast, there was a great opportunity to look at the beautiful architecture and landscapes, we met dolphins on the way)

the sunset cruise was what i expected it to be, meaning, i am a suker for sunsets and this trip made my imagination come to life. It takes you from the upper asian bank of the bosphorus through the rumeli fortress, maidens tower and ends at the golden horn. The staff were helpful and kind, they wouldn't hesitate to take our pictures. we were served sweet and savoury snacks and juice and hot drinks to keep us warm. As the sunsets, the weather gets really chilly, they do provide blankets on board but remember to wear something really warm.
