Cruise on the Golden Horn

The Golden Horn is a historic inlet of the Bosphorus dividing the city of Istanbul and forming the natural harbor that has sheltered Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and other ships for thousands of years. It is a scimitar-shaped estuary that joins the Bosphorus just at the point where that strait enters the Sea of Marmara, thus forming a peninsula the tip of which is "Old Istanbul".


Cruise on the Bosphorus

Bosphorus, the world's narrowest strait used for international navigation, it connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara. Our magical journey which covers both European and Asian shores by our private boat will let you see the marvelous monuments and districts.
