Full description
Start your day with pick up from your hotel and escape the bustle of Istanbul for a day. Hop aboard a ferry bound for the charming Princes’ Island. Visit Büyükada, the largest of the island chain and pass by four other islands on the way. These islands are also famous for being completely free of cars, as well as their mild climates, lush vegetation, and ornate Ottoman houses.

Once you arrive in Büyükada, take a tour around the island in a charming horse-drawn carriage known as the phaeton. Pass by elegant mansions draped in brilliant purple bougainvillea and feel as though you have stepped back in time.

Enjoy lunch at one of the many excellent traditional fish restaurants on the waterfront and take in the view of Istanbul across the shore. After your visit to the island, get dropped off back at your hotel in Istanbul.
