After being picked up from your hotel in the early afternoon, you’ll head straight for the waterfront and board a river cruiser for a journey along the Bosphorus.

Following your cruise, you’ll climb to the top of Pierre Loti Hill by cable car, where you can enjoy amazing panoramic views over the Bosphorus, the Golden Horn and the city.
