What people are saying about Marmara Region

A car-free island in the Marmara Sea

For a longer stay in Istanbul, a boat trip to the Prince Islands is recommended. You can get out of the hustle and bustle of the big city for a few hours. Because I was the only guest here (still in winter season), I was able to benefit particularly from the knowledge of the travel guide. During the trip he told "everything" about the Bosporus, the Sea of Marmara, his city and the Prince's Island. Büyükada was visited. There are no cars here, but horse-drawn cabs, very romantic. On a walk you can see churches, mosques and synagogues, signs of a time when religions harmonized well with one another. The visit to St. George's Church on the highest point of the island after a walk was particularly impressive. The icons there and the depiction of St. George as a dragon slayer are worth seeing.

A Nice day in BuyukAda The minibus picked us from the hotel in time. the guide was awsome, talked to us all the time, gave us all the information we could ask for. The Island was super crowded and I would recommend skipping the electric car and renting a bike.

really loved this tour. Worth going on the relaxing ride and views from the ferry and to end up on the big island which is so lovely and different experience. glad we went. :)

Was really good, the boat ride itself was amazing. We had a really good time on the island as well. It was a good experience overall

Sailing in the sea with the ferry boat was very nice, fresh air and nice weather made us enjoy our time
