Full Description

     Your tour will begin by picking up you from your hotel lobby to the pier that you will get on the board. Our first station will be the best scenery of Istanbul that you probably saw the most Turkey Guide, Ortaköy. Place is mostly famous with the Büyük Mecidiye Mosque which has been built by an Armenian architect called Nikogos Balyan with the order of Abdulmecid. Also on weekends, you can see some counters that you may purchase some handmade souvenirs for you and your friends in the homeland.
     The second step will be KUCUKSU. Most of the old Turkish movies have at least one scenario in this place. This area is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. We will enjoy seeing Kucuksu Palace which is located between Göksu and Kucuksu Rivers. The order of Sultan Abdulmecit, it has been built by the Armenian architect Nikogos Balyan in 1856.
     When we finish visiting the Palace we will have our snacks on the boat. With the fresh weather of the Bosphorus, our next station will be Rumeli Hisarı Fortress. When we finish our visit on fortress we will go back to our boat to have a delicious lunch. There is also a Vegetarian lunch option upon request on your reservation.
     Anadolu Kavagi will be our fourth station. The reason why it is called as Kavak(Normally Kavak is a type of tree) is, Kavak means in the Ottoman period as Control Post. In order to take under control of the Bosphorus, this area called Anatolian Control Point. Anadolu Kavagi is mostly famous with Yusa Hill, crepes to special to region, kinds of seafood and fried mussels. You will have time to taste ice-creams and waffles.
