What Guests Say About Us:

‘Birthday Lunch Cruise’
Had a terrific time on our afternoon cruise on the Bosphoros. The pre-cruise staff was helpful & supportive. The boat was clean & comfortable – even the bathroom. The lunch served on board was delicious and beautifully presented. The crew was friendly & attentive, one member spoke English. What was promised was delivered. We’ll likely use Zoe Yachts again.

‘Definitely recommend’
Picked up at the pier, lovely boat, friendly knowledgeable guide. Perfect afternoon out on the water, seeing the sights and away from the hustle of the City. Lovely lunch stop* for a fish meal. We all loved it!
