This experience was amazing, very informative, fun and beautiful, totally recommend, would definitely do again. We went mid January when it was very cold and it was still well worth it! Our host was beyond nice and was full of great history facts <3

Didn’t wanna expect to much because the yacht ride was under 50 bucks. I was wrong, everything from having just small group so John and his co captain ( forgot his name ) paid attention to all of us and explaining the rich history to seeing a beautiful sunset. I believe we got the best time from 5-7 because sunset was early ( around 6 ) so it was perfect for the GRAM haha. Overall I recommend it because It wasn’t just a tour guide that explained things in a boring way, at the end of everything it felt like a group of friends hanging out in a yacht… another cool note when the tour was done some of us connected as friends that we including John went out for couple drinks. John once again came clutch with the knowledge of the city because he took us to local bars That were full of people that just made the day extra special being in turkey

It was a magical sunset cruise on a nice yacht. John was excellent at communicating about how to get there, what to expect, etc. He was friendly and knowledgeable and made the tour a lot fun. I definately recommend this over the standard dinner cruises on the Bosphorus. Not being shoulder to shoulder with 600 other people makes a world of a difference.

Great boat tour with some spectacular views. We booked it for the afternoon and had good weather - seeing the sunset from the water was just beautiful. John is chatty and friendly and shared some interesting facts about surrounding neighbourhoods and buildings.

This boating excursion on the Bosphorous totally exceeded my expectations, in all ways. John is, indeed, a super host. Welcoming and genuinely friendly, historical and local knowledge in abundance. Excellent communication before the tour to make sure guests understand where to go, how to get there, and very important details about leaving early due to crazy, heavy traffic. Do not take the traffic warnings lightly. The sunset was stunning, if you enjoy photography be sure to request an appropriate time for ultimate photo lighting. You won’t be disappointed in any way. THANK YOU!!
