"Cruise the Bosporus" Bosphorus Ferries Tip by Skibbe

Bosphorus Ferries, Istanbul: 51 reviews and 103 photos

At some point in a trip to Istanbul, you have to get out on the water and see the city from a boat. There are cruises available but you can also just hop a ferry going from one of the city's three sides to another. I got on the wrong ferry and took about an hour after it landed to figure that out. But I got to see parts of the city I hadn't planned on seeing and still enjoyed the ferry rides.
