Immerse yourself in the history of Istanbul and feel like part of the Ottoman dynasty on a full-day cruise to Princes’ Islands: Kinaliada, Heybeliada and Buyukada. The tour also includes a delicious Turkish lunch and a ride on a horse-drawn carriage.
Board a comfortable private boat from Cibali Kadir Has Pier and sit back while you sail to the famous Princes’ Islands of Turkey. Feel the sea breeze and enjoy the beautiful views of Istanbul as you wander into the open sea.
The first stop will be Kinaliada, which in Turkish means “henna island”. Upon arrival, disembark and explore this deserted island, which was used as a place of exile in the Byzantine period. Once you have seen the island’s highlights, you will hop back on the boat and set sail to Heybeliada.
On this islet, you’ll discover the numerous palaces once owned by the Ottoman dynasty and you will feel just like royalty as you are taken on a tour of the island’s top attractions on a horse-drawn carriage. Once you have seen the most important sights, you will return to the boat.
Back on board you will be served a delicious lunch as the boat wanders along the Marmara Sea. The buffet type lunch includes chicken shish kebab with cold appetizers, rice and salad (drinks are not included). After you have recovered your strength, you will visit Buyukada island and learn about its fascinating history as you are accompanied by your expert English-speaking guide. This island is the largest of the archipelago.
