ShoreTrips says...

The Bosphorus (also known as the Istanbul Strait), is a strait that forms the boundary between the European part (Rumelia) of Turkey and its Asian part (Anatolia).

Discover the wealth of impressive sights lining the shores of Istanbul's famous waterway during a Bosphorus boat trip.

Board the ferry with your guide for an incredible excursion that takes place on two different continents--Europe and Asia! You'll see many interesting sights on this tour, such as Ottoman palaces and gorgeous 19th century mansions situated right on the water, as well as impressive fortresses. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery as you cruise along--and have your camera with you at all times!

We'll finish in a charming little village called Sariyer, located on the Bosphorus near the Black Sea. Many years ago, Sariyer was a fishing village that's now home to many expensive villas owned by Istanbul's wealthy.
