    Istanbul boat tour
    Jacqueline_N
    , Aug 2022
    The location of this boat was so hard to find (despite asking numerous people, nobody had heard of this company) that we missed our boat. I was re-scheduled for the following morning but my friend was flying home the next day. The experience would have been better with my friend. The stop on the Asian side did not have much to offer and I felt it was a little unnecessary. On a positive note, the guide was excellent and knowledgeable of the area.

    We enjoyed this cruise and the commentary was great. The guide was interesting and entertaining. Unfortunately there was little to do in our stop in the Asian side and we were unexpectedly guided to a leather shop to see a demo and buy things.

    Helpful staff, beautiful scenery, best price available. Loved it! Would suggest getting to the boat earlier than departure time to get the side seating as we we in the middle and I had to get up a lot to take photos from the side.

    The stop on the Asia side was too short. One hour is not enough time to explore the area. The ferry ride was scenic, that I must share.

    It was an ammmmmmazing trip. The management was superb and accomodating as we reached a little early. The people on cruise were decent and friendly. I took an evening slot. Just wish there were light sandwiches or something like breakfast in the morning.

    great cruise and tour leader. however, almost impossible to find ship. tour needs to pick people up and not ask people to locate it on their own in a foreign country.

    Thanks for sharing your opinions, also arranging pick up from hotels for online booked guest is hard, just because unreachable phones, or wrong address, so we decided to meet guest at specific address, easier.

    This was a lovely trip on a beautiful day. Nice Turkish breakfast but had no interest in going to a leather shop for 1 hour. Would have been happier to have gone to different places on the Asian side

    , Jun 2022
    The cruise is all that is advertised, thoroughly enjoyable. There is live commentary in English, but it was hard to hear and understand. We made our way to the ship independently and the joining instructions were wrong - no meeting point as described, a late SMS changing the name of the ship, leaving us to search through dozens of vessels looking for ours. Only a phone call to the local booking office got us to the ship 45 minutes late - however they did wait for us.

    Real problem with the organisation : no pick-up hotel as promised and low precisions about the meeting point
    Louise_S
    , Apr 2022
    The cruise was very nice, the guide was funny and educative, even though it was complicated to listen to him because of the ambiant noise. The monuments were very beautiful and the little stop on the asian side was appreciable, It's really worth the money ! The real problem is the organisation via viator : they say in the description that there is an hotel pick up. But when you go through the booking process, they don't tell us to mention youtr hotel. So I have messaged viator via whatsapp to ask them how it works : the guy tells me to meet at a gps point calle eminonu bus at 10 AM. I thought that they were going to take us to the boat by bus. Because of trafic, I have arrived 5 minutes late and I thought they were gonna wait for us but actually, the meeting point was the boat itself and they had already left right on time without noticing that we were not there ! I was really upset because it has messed up all our day organisation and even thought I shouldn't have arrived late, the meeting process was not clear at all. when you book the tour, it's written black and white that there is an hotel pick up. Anyways, the guy on the phone was nice and told me we could to the afternoon tour. We have managed to arrive very early for this tour but this time, the boat left with a half an hour delay because there were trafic for the hotel pick-up.. I guess they were two type of clients : the ones who booked via hotels and were allowed to be waited for and the viator clients...
