Istanbul: Day Trip to the Princes' Islands

1. Istanbul: Day Trip to the Princes' Islands

Only an hour’s ferry ride from the city center, the Princes’ Islands consist of 9 small islands that will transport you back in time and away from hectic city life. Spend a day exploring Büyükada, to gain insight into a multicultural society in modern Turkey, akin to the multicultural society that existed here during the Ottoman Empire. Start with a cruise over the Marmara Sea to the largest island, Büyükada, and have lunch. Spend the afternoon enjoying the cheerful local life near the village square. Admire the well-preserved Victorian-era cottages that are covered in colorful flowers all summer.

What people are saying about Heybeliada

We had a great time- our guide Songul was excellent. She explained the history of the islands and took us around. We dined at a very nice sea fronting restaurant which served good food. We were given enough time to roam around on our own. The pick up and drop were a bonus. There was only one issue- it would have been better if a 15 minute pick up slot was mentioned rather than a one hour - we came to the lobby early and had to wait

Great trip, the islands are nice with small stores and restaurants which make a very enjoyable tour. Very good coordination from the pick up to the drop off at the hotel, verify nice staff. Good lunch . I really recommend this trip.
