Princes’ Islands Tour (full day)

Book Now

If you feel the need to escape from the bustle of Istanbul for a day, nothing could be easier. You simply join us aboard a ferry bound for the charming Princes’ Islands.In this Princes’ Islands tour, our destination is Büyükada, the largest of the island chain, but we will pass by four other islands on the way. All are famous for their mild climates, lush vegetation and ornate Ottoman houses, and on all of them cars are banned. The preferred means of transportation is the charming horse-drawn carriage known as the phaeton, which we will use on our circular tour of Büyükada, passing elegant mansions draped in brilliant purple bougainvillea. You will feel as though you have stepped back into a more leisured and gracious age, almost expecting grand 19th century ladies and gentlemen to come strolling down to the waterfront on an afternoon promenade. Lunch will be at one of the many excellent traditional fish-restaurants on the waterfront, gazing across the water at the Asian shore of Istanbul, so close though it feels worlds away.

Testimonials

  • Dear Baris, I was just talking today to Mr Szumanski who came back with his family from their vacation in Turkey. Taking this opportunity I would like to thank you very much for the excellent service they have got from Unison Turkey. Our clients are very happy with their trip. They like very much all the hotels you booked for them (specially SAMARA), as well as their car, all the restaurants and first of all their local guide. He was indeed very kind and very professional. So once again – thank you for taking such a perfect care of my clients and I do hope to send you next clients in the nearest future. We keep in touch With my best regards Ewa

  • One is in good hands on this foodie tour and we even met friends of Janan's on the street in Istanbul, a city of over 15 million.
    Janan's discerning taste and careful selection of eateries, markets and food specialists made a delightful and lasting impression on us.  You have never eaten a concoction with artichoke hearts like we had in KANTIN CAFE .... Lucky if it is on the menu when you go!

    --------
    Our culinary emphasis tour in Istanbul and down to the Anatolian Greek Village was "a trip of a lifetime," combining some of my favorite things: history, ancient civilizations, visits to fresh markets, cooking and of course eating.  The food was a true revelation with Janan as tour leader, plus her knowledge of where to go for what and who to see ........is outstanding.
    No worries about  language,  money,  transportation,  accommodation...all those things that can make foreign travel a challenge.
    Plus, this tour is so reasonably priced, don't miss it!
