Hemos pasado un excelente día visitando Estambul por tierra y por mar. El único inconveniente fue el tráfico de la ciudad

While we embark our boat we saw very nice small boats on Golden Horn. When i asked to our guide, he said they are Sultan Boats. In my mind. Should be investigated before we back to home.
