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.
