See Istanbul from a completely different perspective with this half-day cruise along the Bosphorus Strait. Once the cruise begins, you're free to relax and take photos as you travel along this natural waterway that links together Europe and Asia. Enjoy the massive skyscrapers and colorful buildings bordered by the city's lush forests and tranquil blue waters. Try to spot some popular tourist landmarks like the Rumeli Fortress, a massive stone structure built on top of hills, and the opulent Dolmabahce Palace, which served as the main administrative center of the Ottoman Empire. Once the cruise is over, you'll then take a bus ride to get to the Teleferik Cable Car Station, where you'll get to see the magnificent Golden Horn, the primary inlet of the Bosphorus. Enjoy a scenic cable car trip up to Pierre Loti Coffee House, where French novelist Pierre Loti came for inspiration.
