    I travel to Turkey last month with my friend and I wonder the Bosphorus in Istanbul. We joined the Bosphorus Cruise and They picked up us from our hotel and first visit Spice Bazaar. They gave us us free time for shopping. Reallay there was very interesting things in Spica Bazaar. Only I bought apple tea because I like so much apple tea and I am from Korea, Apple tea is very famous in Korea. Apple Tea is Turkish tea for korean people. After the spice bazaar we drive to Kabatas for Bosphorus Crusise and start the charming bosphorus cruise. We get in the boat and first see Europe Side. I take many pictures. Also our guide explained palaces, villas, everything. Boat turn back to Kabatas. At the end of the tour they dropped us the hotel almost 12:45 – 13:00.. Thank you for this organization.
