CRUISING THE BOSPHORUS BY CAIQUE

  • News
  • Monday, October 13, 2008

Ferries not sexy enough for you? Why not board a caïque to tour the Bosphorus Sultan-style.

Sultan’s caiques
, a private tour operator who's transformed these antiquated gondola-type boats into the new in-thing, continues in the imperial Ottoman tradition to provide a unique cruising experience. Modern tourists will feel like royalty aboard one of these, as sensual catwalk vixen Naomi Campbell did just recently!  

     


 

You can either reserve a private cruise, or join one of the tours available everyday from various ports:

The Palace Tour (not scheduled on Mondays or Thursdays) includes Dolmabahçe, Beylerbeyi & Kuçuksu Palaces; the 60-minute Bosphorus Tours (weekdays 7:30 p.m.;  weekends 1:30 & 7:30 p.m.); the Golden Horn Tour (weekday 6:30 p.m.; weekends 1:30 & 6:30 p.m.)
