Your Istanbul trip isn’t complete without sailing the Bosphorus. Jaw-dropping views of iconic landmarks glide by as you take a break in the comfort of a private boat. Options include either a taste of the morning bustle at the Spice Bazaar or a panoramic view of the Golden Horn in the afternoon.

This strait separating two continents has always been crucial to life in Istanbul. Once a prime channel to move fearsome armies through, it now serves more peaceful functions. Seeing this important trading route is a must-do for travelers.

On board a private boat, hear stories and anecdotes of this mesmerizing city. Sail by Topkapi Palace and Dolmabahce Palace. Admire the thick walls of the medieval Rumeli Fortress. See wooden Ottoman villas and chic neighborhoods along the banks.

Spice up your day with a morning tour at the Egyptian Bazaar, where a whirl of aromas and flavors play out in a maze of colorful covered alleys. Opt for the afternoon departure instead and gaze out over the Golden Horn from the top of Pierre Loti Hill, one the most photographed panoramic spots in town.
