Discover Istanbul’s amazing position spanning Europe and Asia on this full-day tour. Rather than focused entirely on the city’s European side, experience a 2-hour cruise along the Bosphorus Strait, navigating between two continents past highlights including Rumeli Fortress and Dolmabahçe Palace.

Cross the strait through the Bosphorus Bridge for a panoramic view of the vibrant Asian side.

Appreciate the Ottoman-era ‘yali’ (mansions) lining the waterfront, listening to how it was probable for these grand houses to be constructed so close to the water.

Later, see the ornamental Beylerbeyi Palace, which was once a summer dwelling of Ottoman sultans, and other landmarks as you continue your tour to Çamlıca Hill, a point commanding remarkable views of the city.
