    This tour was an incredible way to experience Istanbul’s beauty and culture from a different perspective. The Bosphorus Cruise offered stunning views of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, and the Blue Mosque. The boat was comfortable, and the crew was friendly and informative, providing us with a wealth of knowledge about the city’s history and culture. The highlight of the tour was visiting two different continents in one day. We crossed the Bosphorus Bridge, which connects Europe and Asia, and visited the charming neighborhood of Camlica Hill on the Asian side of Istanbul. The guide gave us a fascinating insight into the neighborhood’s history and culture. We watched Istanbul from the hill. The tour company reserves the right to change the program without notice due to operational reasons. In this program, they were going to show Beylerbeyi Palace, but they changed it and showed Dolmabahçe Palace. That made it even better for us :). We then returned to the European side of Istanbul and visited the Dolmabahce Palace, a magnificent palace built in the 19th century. The interior was opulent, with crystal chandeliers, gold leaf ceilings, and intricate marble work. The guide gave us a detailed history of the palace and its significance in Istanbul’s history. Overall, the Bosphorus cruise and discover two continents tour program by Toursce tour company was a fantastic experience. The itinerary was well-planned, and we had enough time to explore each attraction thoroughly. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating, making the tour both informative and enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Istanbul who wants to experience the city’s beauty and culture from a different perspective.
