About Us

IBO Tours was founded in 2010 by Muzaffer Ibrahim “Ibo” Şamcı. Ibrahim had worked in the tourism industry in Turkey for over ten years, and from his experience, he saw that he could offer a better experience to tourists coming to Istanbul.

When he designed his first Bosphorus boat tour, Ibrahim thought about all the conversations he had had with visitors to Istanbul over the years. Using this knowledge and his passion for the beauty of the Bosphorus, Ibrahim designed a more beautiful and more enjoyable experience for his guests.

Starting out with only 7 employees and one vessel, IBO Tours has grown to employee 13 full-time associates, 3 vessels, and a number of private tour buses.

IBO Tours welcomes you to Istanbul! Book your tour today and allow us to give you an unforgettable experience of this beautiful city from the Bosphorus.
