Great way to see the Bosphorus and to see both the Asian and European sides of Turkey. IT's amazing to think that we were sailing in between two continents. The hotel pickup was very accurate, considering the small winding streets, and they dropped us right back at our hotel.

The tour was good. They had picked me from hotel. The tour guide was not very interesting, may be it was because it was cruise. The boat was below average and food was just ok. Recommend for people with very less time.very good for photographs.

Nice cruise but we never made it onto the Black Sea due to slightly choppy water. Disappointing as this was a once in a lifetime trip and the reason I booked this particular cruise. Otherwise it was fine.

Above average cruise, nothing great. Food was bad, only one stop for half hour. Could improve by adding more stops
