Celebrities of the Previous Century

Istanbul has always been a very important destination for celebrities.

Think about the celebrities who came to Istanbul with the famous Orient Express, they all stayed at the Pera palace Hotel. Agatha Christie wrote her famous novel “Murder on the Orient Express” during the days that she stayed at the Pera Palace (Palas) Hotel.

This historical hotel is still welcoming many celebrities.

Super Yacht Tours on the Bosphorus

Having a beautiful Bosphorus Cruise (Bosporus Cruise) between two continents, Europe and Asia, is one of the most enjoyable and unique experiences in the world. Please think about it, where else in the world can you have a similar experience?

We can arrange various size luxury yachts for your ride along with cocktails, dinner cruises, sunset cruises, combining privacy, luxury and personalised services.

During these cruises, you will be looking at beautiful waterfront houses, palaces, fortresses and woods all along the Bosphorus. Waterfront houses on the Bosphorus are among the most expensive houses in the world.

You may be staying at a hotel right on the water, i.e. Ciragan Palace Kempinski, Four Seasons Hotel Bosphorus, Mandarin Oriental Istanbul. In this situation we can pick you up from the pier of your hotel or you can disembark there.

Likewise, if you like to combine a sunset cruise with a nice dinner at a beautiful restaurant on the water, we can take you directly to the restaurant. Have you ever arrived at a restaurant with a private boat?

Without having a cruise along the Bosphorus, it would be difficult to seize and feel Istanbul. That’s why, Bosphorus cruise is a must in Istanbul.


Private Layover Tours Istanbul

Istanbul is one of the largest cities in the world. The Istanbul Airport is a very important hub for many flights that are going on to Asia, Africa or Middle East. Turkish Airlines is also offering top quality direct flights from hundreds of places from around the world. Before making your flight reservations we strongly recommend that you check the nearest flights of Turkish Airlines.

If you are passing through Istanbul or have a layover in Istanbul, no matter if it is a few hours or a few days, you may like to extend your layover in Istanbul as well, this may be a great chance for you to discover one of the most historical and most beautiful cities in the world. We can pick you up from the airport, take you on a tour, you can get a very pleasant taste of Istanbul, then we take you back to the airport.

We can provide a VIP Greeting at the airport, take you to the city in luxury limousines with chauffeur services, luxury vans, and we can arrange bodyguards or armed guards if required.

Don’t you think, this is a great idea?
