During this 20-minute journey, you will have the opportunity to admire the city’s renowned panorama and discover intriguing aspects of its history. Naturally, we’ll also enjoy sipping Turkish tea or salep, and we’ll have the chance to feed the seagulls by tossing them simit.

  • At the end of our tour, I will escort you to the ferry pier, where you can catch a ferry back to the European side where we initially met. Alternatively, if you prefer not to return by ferry, you have the option to take a taxi back to your hotel. For your return journey, if you opt for the Bosphorus Bridge, you’ll experience the transition from Asia to Europe over the bridge and you will enjoy the magnificent Bosphorus view from above.
