Full description

Begin your adventure on a ferry ride across the majestic Marmara Sea to the breathtakingly beautiful Islands of the Princes. Stop off at the largest of the islands, Buyukada, and explore the ancient island on a guided tour in an electric buggy.

You’ll have plenty of time to take in the charming features of the island, full of historic villas nestled among the pine trees. Enjoy a delicious, locally-prepared lunch and hunt for souvenirs in the unique little shops. Relax on a return cruise across the calm Marmara sea.

After returning from the island, there will be a break for visiting a local leather shop, before transferring to the hotel. If you do not want to visit the shop, you will be free to leave the group at the port and you may return to your hotel on your own.

A Nice day in BuyukAda The minibus picked us from the hotel in time. the guide was awsome, talked to us all the time, gave us all the information we could ask for. The Island was super crowded and I would recommend skipping the electric car and renting a bike.

absolutely fantastic day!

Among so many interesting and impressive historical attractions in Istanbul, the trip to Büyükada is expendable. Worth the boat trip on the Sea of Marmara with the beautiful view of the city and the possibility of spotting dolphins and caravels. But if you come from a place with beautiful beach towns, you are not missing out on anything. The downside was the "fashion show" at the end of the tour, a kind of shopping attraction that doesn't add up and takes the time to return after a tiring day. Overall, all ok!
