Fantastic trip, wine and cheese! The whole experience! I would recommend to anyone who has not had a chance to see Istanbul from the Bosporus!

Couldn't have asked for a better trip on the Bosphorous. Emilio was an excellent host and provided great insight to Istanbul during the trip. Experienced one of the best sunsets of my life with vibrant colors in the sky and the sun reflecting off the water, creating a serene evening.
