Full description
Your 8-hour tour begins with a pick-up at your Istanbul accommodation and a drive to the harbor, where you’ll board a boat for a cruise to the Princes’ Islands in the Marmara Sea.

These islands were retreats for Byzantine princes and are famous for their beautiful pine forests and beaches. This tour will take you to Buyukada, the largest and best known of all the islands.

On Buyukada, you’ll then stop to enjoy lunch and to relax on one of the beautiful beaches that are scattered throughout the coves of the coastline.

You’ll be enchanted by this magical respite from the noise and bustle of Istanbul. In the evening, you’ll be transferred back to your city accommodation.
