General review

I went twice with this travel company in different times and it was very nice. They pick u up from their travel agency and then you are walking to the boat. We choose 3h trip with the boat. U have free tea, Wi-Fi. They have a little shop down where u can take something to eat and drink separately (paid). If you come, bring something to put in the head bc is windy and you will be cold. I came in October and now in November and it’s a little difference in the weather. Per total it’s very nice. We paid 10euro/person for 3h

Nice view

You get to see the landmarks in istanbul but it gets boring after a while, especially at night. Would be nice if there's more elaboration on the history of Istanbul.
