Me and my wife took this trip when were advised to do so from our concierge at the Ciragan palace Kempinski .. The boat picked us up from our hotel pier which was really cool.. We were welcomed by Mr. Alper who is a very nice guy whom explained to us about many things in istanbul.. The show was great especially the bellydancer , food can be better and sitting on deck is a great experience with all those nice buildings surrounding the boot from both sides.. Overall ,one of the best night cruises in Istanbul..
A delightful way to end the day!
We made the mistake of only adding one day to our cruise ending in Istanbul. A minimum of 3 days should be considered. After a full day walking tour of the Old town we decided to go big and booked a 3 hour dinner cruise on the Bosphorus. We chose the non alcoholic version but many had all you can drink options including beer wine or raki. We were picked up at our hotel on time and shared a van with several others going to the cruise. We entered the boat a little bit before sunset and were greeted with a plate of Turkish appetizers that were very good with a nice basket of bread. The choice of entree was fish, chicken or meatballs. My wife had chicken and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the fish which was tasty but was the whole fish so you had to work at it. I would probably try the meatballs next time. The cruise heads up the Bosphorus toward the Black Sea. You pass many bridges crossing from the European side to the Asian side and pass many lit up buildings and Mosques. The entertainment included an emcee and 5 dancers that included a Whirling Dervish demo, traditional Turkish dancing and of course belly dancing. The show had several different sections and the emcee kept the audience involved. The best part for me was the flags of all the different countries on the tables with 6 continents represented. We had opportunities to dance together with our own little United Nations. It was a very good value too.
Great night on Labors Day in Istanbul
I would like to give this review a 5 because the fact the people were scared to go to Istanbul or to the city.We have never felt so safe in their hands. The entertainment,the food,the pick up from the hotel until we came out we were really looked after. The weather was also good.I am so glad we went to Istanbul. Thank you Bosphorus Tours Istanbul! The view of the Bosphorus was amazing!
Best night out in Istanbul
I spent a whole week in Istanbul, with my wife and 15Mo baby. We went almost all the tourist attractions: mosques, museums, gardens, istiklal St, outlets, malls, etc. Of all the activities we have done, our dinner night on the Bosphorus was the best night we had. The program is very nice, the staff are extremely kind and helpful, and their customer service is great. They make their personal responsibility to help. I definitely recommend.
I visited turkey for my birthday, went on the cruise was lovely amazing atmosphere and they made us feel so welcome and also sang happy Birthday to me and gave me a lovely cake was amazing will go there again definitely.
I had the chance to try two tour from them and I was very happy , every thing was done by the phone and WhatsApp Very well organized and on time I took private day cruize with the family and the kids , they were very happy with the trip And took the night cruize with the show It was very entertaining
Awesome memories that don't burn a hole in your pocket!
We hired the Bosphorus Tours for all our tourist excursions in Istanbul. Even though the tourist companies in Istanbul are notorious for ripping you off but Mr.Tugrul at Bosphorus Tours was a an absolute delight! Despite being out of station, he guided us through various options with packages which easily beat the commercial companies by HALF! His team was professional and warm. We took a full day tour at the Princess' Islands, a full day tour to the major attractions around the Blue Mosque and we took a tour of Bosphorus by Night. Each expedition was worth every penny paid. To top it off, I forgot my mobile in one of their buses after one of the tours and the driver actually found it and got it back to our hotel within an hour!
MAGIC NIGHT ON BOSPHORUS
T S just all that you ll always dreamed its amazing to see the Istanbul at night ...amazing tour ...i l always come back
J'ai pensé à un dinner spectacle en croisière pour faire plaisir à mon mari qui nous a rejoint pour le weekend sans pour autant me ruiner.. et lisant les avis des testeurs, j'étais un peu sceptique. De un, les prix annoncés sont exorbitants vu la qualité des prestations et de deux, j'avais un bébé de 2 ans que j'ai jamais ramené en spectacle.. A mon bonheur et merci tripadvisor, je tombe sur une offre de BTI que je contacte à 4h du matin par WhatsApp. Au réveil je trouve une réponse et on a continué l'échange, on me confirme ma réservation pour le soir même. Tout me semblait très facile et correct pour être vrai. Mais à ma surprise, tout était presque parfait, le bateau n'était pas géant (en cas de fréquents déplacements avec le bébé) et ressemblait aux photos envoyées par la personne avec qui j'ai échangé (et qui écrit en parfait anglais sans la moindre ambiguïté). La sonorisation et le volume était corrects même si nous étions à une rangée de l'orchestre et parfaitement situés pour voir la totalité des shows. Le buffet était très correct (surtout d'après les avis des autres testeurs), mon mari qui n'aime pas trop le vacarme et volumes élevés a apprécié la soirée et mon bébé a dansé comme pas possible et est restée eveillée jusqu'à environ 1h du matin l'heure de retour à l'hotel par les soins du mini bus tout comme il nous a récupéré au début.. les deux rives du Bosphores révélaient des bijous illuminés toute la soirée que ce soit de la baie vitrée ou de la terrasse du Bateau.. tout ça mesdames et messieurs pour le prix de 35 euros par personne et bébé en gratuite. PS : je souligne la serviabilité de la personne sur WhatsApp qui m'a même assistée à trouver d'autres tours avec d'autres companies même si cela ne relève pas de ses compétences.. Merci !
Amazing boat tour for a special day
I have booked the dinner tour online for my mom's 70th birthday. They are extremely helpful, responded fast and helped with my special requirements for a custom cake. I emailed them what I wanted and they made it happen :-) The evening was perfect, they picked us up from the hotel on time, took us to the boat. The boat is great, food was good, drinks keep coming and the show is nice. The best part was the celebration of the birthday. They brought the cake with all the sparkling candles and the presenter announced her special day. The show kept on going after. To sum it up, it was a memorable evening for all of us, I can highly recommend them for a tour.

delicious food, great entertaintmet, Bosphorus dinner cruise
I booked this cruise online, i was not asked to pay in advance, that was a simple way of booking the tour. As promised I was picked up from my hotel on time. There was a welcome coctail on boat..a lovely dinner was next..while having dinner we enjoyed different Turkish dances of dervishes, oriental dance, asuk and masuk and much more. The international singer was the best, he made every one happy and have good time during the cruise. The amazing views of the sighs from the boat were breathtaking. Anoneone visiting Istanbul must do this cruise.
