Turkey is at a place where East and West literally meet. Turkey is in the middle of both Asia and Europe. The Bosphorus Strait is in northern Turkey. Istanbul City Boat Tour on the Bosphorus (Short Circle) is a great way to see the beauty of Istanbul from a different point of view. The glittering Sapphire Strait gives you the best view of Turkey’s dramatic landscape.

The calm waters of the Bosphorus Strait invite you to get on board and see the legendary ruins of Constantinople, Byzantium, and the Ottoman Empire. When you take a cruise through the Bosphorus Strait, you can see both Turkey’s past and its present.
