About Princes Island’s Tour

After breakfast you will meet with your guide who will accompany you for this relaxing/traditional tour. You will transfer to port where we get public boat to Princes’ Islands, Buyukada (Big Island) the popular summer resort with sandy beaches and pinewood scenery, once the pleasure island of Byzantine Princes. It is also served as a place of exile for disgraced princes in days gone by. Our boat 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.

This is a perfect day for relaxing and enjoying one of Istanbul’s residents’ favorite summer retreats but first, we need to hire our carriage to Aya Yorgi Church Hill. Upon arrival to the entrance of the hill, we will start our “wishing” ritual. After reaching church and light our candles, we walk down to hill. Rest of the day is for relaxing…
