The princes' Island Tour ( L )
We will pick you up from your hotel after breakfast then you will join to our full day guided the Princes' Island Tour.
If you find yourself feeling the need to escape from the bustle of Istanbul for a day, the Princes' Island Tour would be the best. You will join us aboard a ferry bound for the idylic Princes' Island, enjoying cool breezes and charming sights along the way. Adalar is a district of Istanbul which includes nine islands which can be listed as Büyükada, Heybeliada, Burgazada, KÄ±nalÄ±ada, SedefadasÄ±, Sivriada, YassÄ±ada, KaÅŸÄ±kadasÄ±, and TavÅŸanadasÄ±. The center of Adalar is Büyükada. Our destination is Büyükada, the largest of the island chain, it was a site of exciled palace members, particularly in the Byzantine Era. We will pass by four other islands on our way to Büyükada. All these islands are famous for their mild climates, lush vegetation and ornate old Ottoman houses, the cars are prohibited in all of these islands so the prefered means of transportation is the charming horse-drawn carriages known as phaeton, which we will use on our circular tour of Büyükada, passing through delightful scenery studded with elegant mansions draped in brillant purple bougainvillea. You will feel as you have suddenly stepped back into a bygone era that is more leisured and gracious, finding yourself almost expecting to see 19 th century ladies and gentlemen come strolling toward you down the waterfront as they take their afternoon promenade. You will enjoy your lunch at the best of the many excellent tradational fish restaurants that line the waterside, gazing, as we enjoy succulent delicious meze appetizers and fresh fish, across the water at the Asian shore of Istanbul, so close it feels worlds away.
At the end of the day we will back to Istanbul then transfer to your hotel.
