On Friday, a Bosphorus cruise awaits, in which you can enjoy the colorful shoreline or dance to our DJ’s selection of tangos. Yes, this cruise will be a milonga as well as a tour which will be held between 2 continents; Europe and Asia.
The Bosphorus cruise was one of the most talked-about activities during last year’s festival, so we have expanded it with a larger boat this time, with a fully wooden floor for a more comfortable dance experience. To ensure an even mix, make your reservations as soon as possible, as we are limited to 80 slots for women, and 80 for men. Apart from the performances by our featured Maestros, you will also enjoy amazing shows of carefully selected international guest dancers. As one of the famous Argentine tango instructors says: “The music is the leader.” That is why we have invited well-known DJs, who bring their experience from numerous international tango festivals. With their festival-tested tango selections, you can be sure to dance joyfully until the morning. Finally thanks to our special agreement with special Hotels .
