Full Day Tour of Princes Island
Set sail from the serene shores of Golden Horn, on a private boat from Istanbul, and head towards Kinaliada, the first of three islands.
An expert tour guide will accompany you, giving you deeper insight into the islands visited and their historic relevance to Istanbul.
As you reach Kinaliada, notice the numerous antenna towers that stand tall, along with Ottoman-Victorian summer villas.
At Heybeliada next, gasp at narrow (and relatively deserted) beaches, massive pine forests, and iconic 19th-century villas.
With no motor vehicle in sight, leave behind your metropolitan ways and glide through the island on a horse-drawn carriage.
Finally, visit Büyükada, the largest of the three islands, which is also the most crowded and popular (for good reason).
Spot Ottoman-Victorian mansions, and learn about princes of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires who once relaxed on these islands.
A 2-course luncheon will be served on the private boat, comprising of chicken Shish kebabs, cold appetizers, rice, and salad.
Round-trip hotel transfers are available, provided your hotel is centrally located in Istanbul.
Ages 2yrs and below go free. Ages 3-7yrs enjoy reduced ticket pricing (carry a valid photo ID).
