I thought the price was reasonable. They pick you up at the hotel. Drop you off. Feed and entertain you. Ya it’s a little cheesy entertainment wise but it’s fun. Waiters super nice and helpful. I enjoyed the food. If you get tired of the music you can go upstairs where they have shisha or just enjoy the air and the view. The view! That alone is worth the money. I’m not sure how anyone could not enjoy this. It was a cool night in November so we had warm coats and hats. The dinner room was a bit crowded at the table but that’s ok. We got up and moved around. Best value of anything we did in Istanbul

This is a ripe off totally ! They think people never saw cruises around the world ?? $60 is dollars a person we could’ve had a great dinner in 5 stars restaurant, the show is so poor and it’s a joke to the point that you feel they are insulting your intelligence . So stupid .
The buffet is disgusting and I swear that in motels you will have better buffet. See pictures.
I should report this to the tourism police in Istanbul to shut them down. Shame on you giving your beautiful city this kind of reputation.

Booked through instanbulbosphorustours.net. I think you can book through a number of companies (agents) for essentially the same boat/tour. Booking process was very straightforward and we were emailed within one hour with details and to confirm if we wanted to proceed. After we confirmed we received two further emails very quickly with more details and the voucher (not needed at all). No payment requested at this stage.
We booked in the morning for the evening tour.
We were given a pick up time (from our hotel) with a 10 minute window either side. Driver arrived promotly in a very clean, air conditioned 15 seater bus and we proceeded to pick up from a few more hotels en route.
Arrived in plenty of time for the cruise.
We were seated 3 tables away from the DJ and we thought the noise levels were just right (I hate loud music etc). Tables seat 10 so we shared with a large family but did not speak to them (they were busy in their phones).
Immediately we were served drinks (which were regularly replenished) and the salad and appetizers, with a bread basket. Food is nothing special.
Eventually boat sailed and entertainment began. Mainly different kinds of dance and a long stint by the belly dancer. During this period the food was served (Fish, chicken steak or kofte kebabs), followed by desert and tea.
The waiters were constantly rushing around (we tipped our main waiter at the end).
Throughout we kept going to the top deck for cool air and views (middle deck was cordoned off for a private party).
We were asked for payment about 2 hours into the cruise. Paid by credit card. Never needed the voucher and we were identified throughout by the name of the hotel that we were staying in
We spent the last hour on the top deck.
Our boat sailed Northwards towards Asia and so we never got any close views of Topkapi etc but it was still very picturesque.
I think all the big tourist boats go this way
As we disembarked our driver was waiting for us and we were dropped at hour hotel (in the same order we were all collected).
All in all a very pleasant way to spend 30 Euros (yes 30, check a few websites and don't get ripped off by paying more).
