Overview
The best way to immerse yourself in a short time is to visit the peaceful Prince’ Islands. We will enjoy a cruise accompanied by the Seagulls to “Buyukada”, the largest island among the Prince’ Islands. During the cruise, we will view the charming sights along the way and the memorable view of the old Istanbul. On the way, you'll be able to enjoy great views of the Topkapi Palace, Leander's Tower and Üsküdar on Istanbul's Asian shore. Prince’s Islands are summer places; away from the rush of the city, they offer a different experience with their unique climate, vegetation and vehicle-free roads. Only horse-carriages named Phaeton are allowed on Prince’s Islands. We will take a ride around the Island with the Phaeton and enjoy the sights of the island and its elegant mansions. When you explore some of the islands' quiet back streets, you'll feel as if you've found your way back to the late 19th century and an Istanbul that no longer exists on the mainland.

We did the the full day tour which was good. It includes trip to two islands,but the lunch was horrible. Avoid it of you can and buy your own lunch from one of the restaurants. The ferry ride took two hours one way which is very pleasant to enjoy if you are sitting down on your

Great island to visit but be prepared for large number of tourists which appear from lunchtime onwards during peak holiday season. Would advise to go early to miss the crowds. Carriage ride around the island was fantastic and recommended. Plenty of places to eat and the food was

The journey was fun and organized, and the island is so beautiful. However, the duration is not enough, as if you are in a hurry. Because there are so many shops and places to explore around the island. I suggest to go by yourself, it is doable.
