Full description

Begin your adventure on a ferry ride across the majestic Marmara Sea to the breathtakingly beautiful Islands of the Princes. Stop off at the largest of the islands, Buyukada, and explore the ancient island on a guided tour in an electric buggy.

You’ll have plenty of time to take in the charming features of the island, full of historic villas nestled among the pine trees. Enjoy a delicious, locally-prepared lunch and hunt for souvenirs in the unique little shops. Relax on a return cruise across the calm Marmara sea.

After returning from the island, there will be a break for visiting a local leather shop, before transferring to the hotel. If you do not want to visit the shop, you will be free to leave the group at the port and you may return to your hotel on your own.

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.

The tour included pick up and drop off at the hotel. The voucher stated a 8.30am pickup I called the agency no answer. They ended picking us up 1 hour later. They made no communication with us at all. The drop off the tour guide told us we had to go back in the train and make our own way back to the hotel even though we had paid for a hotel drop off. The worst terrible service if I could rate it a zero I definitely would have.
