The guests will be greeted on the pier or at the airport in Istanbul, or the guests will be met at their hotel lobby by UTS-Nurdan’s United Travel Services’ expert bilingual guide for a private tour, with private A/C transportation all day long.
Your private tour will begin with a journey from the European side to the Asian side of Istanbul, crossing the two continents by driving across the first Euro-Asian bridge that was built in Istanbul. You will proceed to the top of the Grand Camlica Hill, where you will enjoy the panoramic view of the European side of Istanbul.
Your private tour will continue with a visit to the Beylerbeyi Palace, the residence of the Ottoman Sultans in late 19th and early 20th century.
After this visit, a scenic drive on the Asian shores of the Bosphorus will take you to the Kanlica Village where you will have a taste of the famous “local yogurt” and “apple tea” in a local café by the Bosphorus.
You will then board a private boat for a cruise along the Bosphorus against the majestic skyline of Istanbul. Your private boat will cruise along the romantic Bosphorus visiting both the Europe Side and the Asia Side of Istanbul by the shores of local fishing villages, en route when it is possible to take memorable photos of the fascinating environments including the 15th century Rumelihisarı Fortress, the Summer Palaces of Lady Ottoman Sultans, and the historical Wooden Houses (Yalis) of famous Turkish families.
The boat cruise will end at one of the fishing villages by the European shores of the Bosphorus and after a leisurely drive along the Bosphorus Avenue, you will be escorted to your hotel or cruise pier.
