There are four points on the route where you can hop off, explore, and hop back on again. It's perfect, convenient, and the best way to see Istanbul.

How safe is Istanbul: You’ll find that Istanbul is a safe city to visit. Yes, there is petty crime, snatching and pickpocketing, so you will need to follow the usual precautions when you visit. For example, keeping valuables hidden etc. Also, stay close to the tourist areas and avoid heading into the districts.

When should I visit the city: The city that straddles Europe and Asia has so much to take in that perhaps the weather isn’t the most important thing to think about. However, for the best of the weather, November to March is considered the best time to visit. The summer months are when it really heats up.

• Nicknames can be two a penny, but Istanbul’s really does need some refining! The city has been nicknamed the City of Seven Hills, like Rome, perhaps whoever decided that forget to count the other 43! Yep, there are more than 50 hills in the city.

• On your Istanbul boat tour on the Bosphorus you’ll see that it’s a busy port area. In fact, there are around 50 piers and more than 20 ferry lines traversing the river and the Golden Horn!
