If there were only one thing to do in Istanbul it would be a boat tour on Bosphore The best time is at the end of the afternoon. You can catch the daylight and then see the city by night with the lights on.

There are several boat tours of the Bosphorus, Just pick one and enjoy. You can't go wrong. Interesting to be able to be between the two continents of Europe and Asia.

This is Istanbul in a nut-shell. Old and new brought together for a quick overview of what this city has to offer you.
