Brief Itinerary: Princes' Islands Tour
This island tour starts after breakfast, when you are picked up at the hotel or port by our private tour guide. Take the ferry to one of the Princes' Islands, Buyukada (Big Island), which served as a place of exile for disgraced princes in days gone by. Today it is a quiet sea front town and summer holiday escape from the city.
Leaving the Golden Horn you will round Sarayburnu (Seraglio Point), the headland on which the domes and minarets of Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque can be seen. Upon arrival to the island, you will see the lavish Ottoman mansions and other beautiful Victorian summer villas around the island by horse-drawn carriage tour - one of the islands only means of transport, for motor-vehicles are strictly prohibited.
There are colorful fruit trees, beautiful gardens, wooded areas and exotic flowers to be seen everywhere. Afterwards, you can enjoy a delicious lunch in a cozy sea-side fish restaurant and relax looking back at the domes and minarets among skyscrapers of modern Istanbul's skyline.
