A great chance to see Bosphorus Strait, Dolmabahce Palace and Golden Horn when you have limited time on the day. You will sail between Asia and Europe, on the Bosphorus Strait. Having a cup of coffee or tea on Pierre Loti Hill with a Golden Horn view will make you feel refreshed.

After your breakfast, you will be picked up from your hotel for
Half Day Private Istanbul Bosphorus Cruise Tour with Cable Car and Golden Horn.
Your tour will start with
Dolmabahce Palace that is an ostentatious blend architectural styles including Baroque, Rococo, Neoclassical and modern Ottoman, dripping in luxury. It took 13 years to build and was completed in 1856, and served as the administrative center of the Ottoman Empire until 1922.
Bezm-i Alem Valide Sultan Mosque commissioned in 1852 by Bezm-i Alem Valide Sultan, the wife of Sultan Mahmud II and the mother of Sultan Abdülhamid. The construction of the mosque was finished in 1853, after Bezm-i Alem Sultan’s death. The mosque’s architect was Nikogos Balyan; its style shows a mixture of 19th century Ottoman and Western styles.
The tour will continue with
Boat on the Bosphorus; an amazing cruise between the two continents, Europe and Asia, along the Bosphorus by the Dolmabahçe and Beylerbeyi Palaces, wooden villas and mansions up to the Rumeli Fortress.
You will see famous
Maiden's Tower. This is a small and attractive tower built on an islet at the entrance to the Bosphorus. It is one of the symbols of İstanbul. Used in the past as a watchtower and a lighthouse, it has been preserved in its 19th Century appearance.
We will head to Eyup for
Cable Car & Pierre Loti Hill, named after the well-known French novelist Pierre Loti, this hill offers perfect views of the Golden Horn. You will see the city walls, initially built by Constantine the Great, the walls surrounded the new city on all sides, protecting it against attack from both sea and land.
As the city grew, the famous double line of the Theodosian Walls was built in the 5th century. We will drive by bus to
Golden Horn, an estuary formed by flooding of valleys of two rivers confluenting just northwest of Eyüp by Bosphorus in prehistorical times, had always been Istanbul’s primary harbour. In fact, it can be argued that Istanbul would never have existed in such a grand way if it weren’t for this superb harbour (and also the superb trading route through and across Bosphorus, by the way).
In the end of the tour, our car will leave you in front of your hotel.
