Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city life, spend a day sailing and visit the charming Princes’ Islands. Sit back, relax and feel the Turkish air against your skin as you island-hop along the Sea of Marmara.

Also known as Adalar, the Princes’ Islands were once a solitary place for monks and a place of exile during the Byzantine era; they are now a popular destination for locals and tourists. Bicycles and horse-drawn carriages replace motorised vehicles on these oases of peace and quiet. There are a total of 9 islands making up the Adalar, but only 4 are open to the public.

Embark on your cruise along the deep blue waters of the Marmara Sea. As you head for the main island of Büyük Ada, stop at the smaller inhabited islands along the way to see their unique characteristics. Upon arrival at Büyük Ada, the largest and most famous among the Princes’ Islands, enjoy a short guided walking tour through the streets decorated with beautiful wooden houses.

Afterward, enjoy lunch at a local seafood restaurant, which offers outstanding views of Istanbul’s shores, before enjoying some free leisure time to explore the island. In the afternoon you have the chance to make your own way around either by renting a bike, shopping around the local stores, or hop on a phaeton, a horse-drawn carriage, take a tour, and enjoy the slower pace of life here.
