Bosphorus Tour and New Mosque in Istanbul

We are in Instanbul for almost a month already, the other day we did Bosphorus boat cruise after being postponed for one day because of laziness to get up out of bed after tiring and exhausting days of sightseeing. The boat cruise was not almost materialized because it was already eight in the evening when we decided to get out and headed to the cruise port in Eminönü.

We are both in hurry, it was 5 minutes before eight o’clock when we arrived in Eminönü, after few minutes walking we found people offering boat tours for 10TL for 1 hour and 15 minutes ride, my husband want to walk more to look for Toryul company but I insisted just to ride the available tour in our front right now instead of walking and losing the last opportunity for a boat cruise.

The picture above was taken while we are still in dock and waiting for few more passengers, we left exactly at 8: 30 in the evening.
