"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 best scenary of Istanbul that you probably saw the in most Turkey Guide, Ortaköy. Place is mostly famaous with Büyük Mecidiye Mosque which has been build by an Armenian architect called as Nikogos Balyan with the order of Abdulmecid. Ortaköy has also a fame with Kumpir (Baked Patato) and Waffles. If you go there we suggest you not to leave without taste at least one of them. Also on weeksends you can see some counters that you may purchase some handmade souvenirs for you and your friends in homeland. The second step will be KUCUKSU. Most of old Turkish movies have at least one scenary in this place. Wish you to feel like an old actor/actress? The area is located on Asian side of Istanbul. We will enjoy to see Kucuksu Palace which is located between Göksu and Kucuksu Rivers. With the order of Sultan Abdulmecit it has been built by the Armenian architect Nikogos Balyan on 1856. When we finish to visit the Palace we will have our snacks on boat.With tea/coffee and the fresh wheather of the Bosphorus our next station will be Rumeli Hisarı Fortress. The main reason to build this fortress is to prevent the helps which comes for Byzantine Empire during the conquest of the Constantinople. Mehmet the Secıond has been worked personally during its structure. The wheather of the Bosphorus makes the people hungry. When we finish our visit on fortress we will go back to our boat to have delicious lunch. There is also 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 Ottoman period as Control Post. In order to take under control the Bosphorus, this area called as Anatolian Control Point. Anadolu Kavagi is mostly famous with Yusa Hill, crepes to special to region, sea foods and fried mussels. You will have time to taste ice-creams and waffles. The final destination is Poyrazköy to say hello to Black Sea.

To our chance. Wheather was so nice and clear. We could see the full Bosphorus shore clearly. On Bosphorus we saw a group of dolpins as well.
