A popular sightseeing attraction for many of our clients is the Bosphorus Strait, which is a Strait located in between Europe and Asia. The Bosphorus is the narrowest strait in the world that is still used for international navigation. It forms a connection between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. Historically, the Bosphorus used to be known as the Strait of Constantinople or as simply the ‘Istanbul Strait.’
Although there is some maritime traffic on the Bosphorus, it is still a popular sightseeing venue for many people who are visiting the country on holiday. One of the main reasons for sightseeing traffic along the Bosphorus are the more than 600 gorgeous waterfront homes that were built during the Ottoman Empire. These homes include many Ottoman palaces like the Topkapi Palace, the Dolmabahce Palace and the Ihlamur Palace.
In addition to Ottoman palaces, there are many other buildings and significant historical landmarks near the Bosphorus Strait that make it a popular sightseeing attraction for many. Within view of the Bosphorus are: Hagia Sophia church, Hagia Irene, Maiden’s Tower, Rumelian Castle, Anatolian Castle, Selimiye Barracks, Sadberk Hanim Museum, and the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, to name just a few.
Many of our private transfer customers who choose to take a tour of the Bosphorus Strait region enjoy hiring a private ferry to take them from Uskudar to Besiktas or Kabatas. Ferry riders will see a plethora of catamaran sea buses that are always running for commuters between the Asian and European shores of the Bosphorus. At many spots along the strait, there are tourist ferries running, with prices varying depending on the type of ride and the distance traveled. Many of these sightseeing tourist ferries play loud music throughout the duration of the trip to attract the younger crowd.
Airport Transfer Istanbul offers you a car rental with a private driver for the duration of your Turkey vacation. Please note that our drivers are all trained and certified and can offer you a lot of insight about the area. Also important is the fact that we do employ English-speaking drivers should you desire one. And lastly, for those who prefer a little more independence, you can choose to rent a car from us without a driver and explore the culturally fascinating land of Istanbul on your own.
