We will be travelling from mainland lstanbul to nearby islands where horse carriages are the sole form of transportation and will include visits of several famous gardens and architecturally-distinguished landmarks. These 19th and early 20th century gardens are normally closed off to the public and are made accessible for this tour only. Gardens of Princess Islands are worth living experiences amongst the gardens of Istanbul.
