Response from dreamcity-istanbul, Halkla İlişkiler Müdürü at Bosphorus Strait and Black Sea Day Cruise from Istanbul
Responded 11 Oct 2019
First of all thank you for your comment . In our blacksea cruise price for a beer (33cl)25 tl . Also information about the tour written in our brochures clearly and it is stated that the tour includes a swimming break. You could have ask the price, it was told it is extra so it was up to you to drink or not. And the bar staff would never go around with a tip box . With all my respect I am feeling you are being unfair to us. at least you liked the program and the presentation of our guide. Have a nice day

Looking for a cruise on the beautiful Bosporus? Well, look no further! You will explore four Turkish historical places on both the European and Asian sides. Tour guide, Aslan, is Turkey’s best historian, filled with knowledge and stories that capture your imagination
