I agree with the previous poster, no need to do a cruise, save yourself a heap of money, and go on the local ferry.
This cruise is very popular, so make sure you arrive early. I arrived half hour early, and already the queue was long. They started letting you on not long after I arrived. Later, people were standing!
The ferry pulls in at a few wharfs on the way, to on/off load passengers, before its arrival at Anadolu Kavagi. This is as far as it goes. You have enough time here for lunch, and for a walk to the Castle ruins, so it works out just fine. The sights are wonderful from the water, you get to see so much.

On the ferry there is a kiosk where you can buy food & drinks. A steward also comes around selling tea/coffee and Yoghurt.
It is best to sit on the left hand side, this way you are not looking into the sun, so you can get good photos.
It departs from the Eminonu wharf.

COST IN 2009 was 20t/l
Departs 10.30 - Returns 4.30pm -

... OR the private-cooperative owned Turyol boat cruise

cost very cheap at YTL7.50 last year, I think it went to YTL9 or 10 this year, and lasts 1.5 hours or so, you don't have to get off out of the boat, it just cruise around and back to your starting point from Eminonu ferry dock. Nice views around the bosphorous.

Have fun!

Re: Bosphorus Cruise

by ray_fb

The full day cruise now cost 25 t/l. I did that in June 2010.

A typical lunch near the wharf cost around 15 t/l. Same stuff just under the castle cost 20 t/l but you'll have a nice view looking down.

Travel Tips for Istanbul


by sakuratour

Sultan Ahmet I Camii (Blue Mosque)

The most famous, if not necessarily the most beautiful, mosque in the old city is the Blue Mosque, facing Aya Sofya from across Sultanahmet Square . It is a purposefully imposing structure, its interior walls clad in exquisite Iznik tiles, built between 1609 and 1616 by the architect Mehmet Aga. A student of the great architect Sinan, Aga built the mosque both as a means of showing the world that he had outstripped his mater – and the architects of Aya Sofya – and as a tribute to the superiority of Islam. It still maintains that symbolism for many Muslims. The mosque, with 260 windows, associated religious school, hospital, caravansaray and soup kitchen (the kulliye or “complete social centre” in the Islamic sense) is impressive for size alone. Its six minarets nearly caused a major rift, as this was as many as the great mosque in Mecca ; the Sultan had to donate an extra minaret to Mecca to quell the row. If Turkey is your chosen destination then Sakura Tourism & Travel is the perfect choice to arrange your complete vacation, from the moment you arrive until your departure. We specialise in creating and arranging personalised itineraries to suit each guest's individual requirements. Additionally if you wish to travel as an organised group, we will quote and prepare all arrangements.

Topkapi Palace, second court

by bugulma

After the gate you go in the second court where you can see the beautiful park as well as some architecture such as Sultan kitchens. Harem, the place where Sultan wife lived, is here too (the extra fee for the entrance there). In the kitchens is museum of the porcelain that was bought by Sultan in China in the middle ages.

Elit Chocolate, a must bite for sure

by Martin_S.

If you happen to like sweet things or chocolate, then give the Elit Chocolate that we "found" on Istiklal Street a try. We saw people lining up to purchase here so we naturally went to take a look. We found small to medium sized packs of chocolate wrapped in aluminum foil without any other packaging. We tried several kinds and enjoyed them all. Just look for a small corner kiosk with foil wrapped items in the front, that will be the chocolate.

Poor neighborhood

by ptitetoile

If make a luxus trip with an airconditionned coach, you may not see that...but if you go a little bit further than the touristic areas : this an image that you could see...poor neighborhoods with very old houses, some garbage in the streets and children playing with whatever they find...impressive next to the nice palace and mosques...
