From Istanbul: Full-Day Princes Island Tour with Lunch
- Pickup available
- Duration: 8.5 hours
We met our guide at the ticket office and then a bus too the ferry terminal. A quick bit of information while we were on the bus, and some good advice not to get scammed on the boat with food and drinks offered. There's brief commentary from a recording on the boat, and intermittent pieces of info spoken by the guide. It's not a full on comprehensive guide to every single thing along the way, but enough bits to keep you entertained. Definitely go when the weather is nice and enjoy the sights and sunshine. Sitting on the left is better but it was an open deck so you could see both sides fine no matter where you sit. You have to ask the boat staff to bring out more chairs!
It was a great experience for myself and my family. We enjoyed every moment of the tour it was totally worth it! Our tour guide (Mehmet) was very helpful and kind. The meal was also great, very generous and tasty. The horse carriage was really cool too. And boat ride was amazing with the scenery. Totally recommend it, as you see 2 different islands, including beautiful nature views.
This was a great experience. I booked at 10:30 pm for 9:30 am the next day and the guide was in time. Saban was very experienced, knowledgeable and accommodating to our needs and wishes. This is a little pricey, but I felt worthwhile to fit the time we had.
Actually it was amazing tour, even our guide tour she was professional. The only thing we didn’t like its the time was on winter season and it was frizzy if you are from hot country you will not enjoy on December.
Having our guide( kublai) by us was very helpful as he was able to share with us correct information about all places of interest we visited. He had a very wide and in-depth knowledge on all sites and history.
