Depart for full day tour, escaping the bustle of Istanbul for the day. Start the day by boarding a ferry bound for the charming Princes' Islands, your destination, Buyukkada, the largest of the island chain, passing by four other islands during the trip. The islands are famous for their mild climates, lush vegetation, ornate Ottoman houses and for being vehicle-free. The preferred means of transport is the charming horse-drawn carriage known as the Phaeton, which you will use on your trip around Buyukada, passing by elegant mansions draped in brilliant purple bougainvilleas. Feel as though you have stepped back in time to a more peaceful and graceful era. You can feel the 19th century grandeur that adorned the waterfront on your leisurely stroll along the promenade.
