Istanbul at night is just wow!! Went on the morning cruise and I booked immediately the dinner cruise. The tour company is extremely good. I booked like last minute, but they managed to arrange everything for us. Cruising Bosporus at night is a completely different experience. My boyfriend and I felt so nice and relaxed when watching the city lights and the night sky! Dinner was tasty and we had a very good table with nice views. The was a show for us during the dinner, with some professional dancers. Overall, it was an incredible night and I recommend that you cruise Bosporus at different times of the day.
Value for money, family friendly! As we were in the city with 3 little kids, we wanted an easy-going night out. The dinner cruise was just the right option, and thank God we found this guide that recommended it to us. The boat was quite big, and very clean. Our table was at the deck, and we enjoyed the views as we sail into the Bosporus. The experience is magical, and if you consider that you are between two continents it’s getting way more interesting. Our kids had fun, especially when the dance show started. A delightful night experience for all of us.
We had a lovely evening as a family. Everything was so well and we enjoyed every moment. We were on holidays in Istanbul a couple of weeks ago with our 3 kids – 9, 11, 14 yo. So not many options for night outings The dinner cruise was just perfect for us. It was fun and relaxing at the same time. Dinner was delicious, many interesting recipes. And wow the dancers did an incredible job entertaining us. It is value for money if you consider all the things you can get from a single cruise. Try it, it is worthy!
