Full Description

You will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the Rumeli Hisari Fortress, where you'll board our boat. We'll get a great view of the Fortress from the boat and you'll learn some interesting facts about its history from your guide. For example, the Fortress was built to prevent anyone from entering the Bosphorus and reaching Constantinople to help the Byzantines during the Ottoman conquest. 

Then it will be time for lunch. If you're a vegetarian, please request the vegetarian lunch option when you  make your reservation. 

The first stop will be Anadolu Kavagi. The name originally referred to the trees in the forest that used to be there, but in time came to mean Anatolian Control Point which is what the area was during the Ottoman Period. It played an important role in the Ottomans maintaining control of the Bosphorus. Today, it is famous for special crepes and seafood including fried mussels. You will have time to taste ice-cream and waffles while we're there - yum!

The final destination is Poyrazköy to say hello to the Black Sea! We will stop in at a beautiful cove on the Asian side where you can swim or just enjoy the sunshine. Afterwards, we will return to Kabatas Pier and then you will be dropped-off at your hotel. 




  • Pick-up and drop-off shuttle service.
  • Lunch, coffee or tea and fruit provided on the boat.
  • English speaking tour guide.

Meeting point
