I booked this package because it included a day tour of the Prince’s Island Buyukada. While the city of Istanbul was beautiful, the peaceful day we spent on the island was something else. It felt like a small haven, with colorful small houses and pretty architecture all around. The lunch we had here tasted more yummy because of the views all around us. We rented some bikes and rode them around to explore the island and it was a journey well worth it. Tiring but worth it. If you have visited Istanbul before and want to explore something further, this is it.

The tour guide on this tour was very knowledgeable and friendly. I never knew Hagia Sophia had such a long history until the guide explained it all. The ferry ride to Prince’s island was also very scenic. My sister and I got some stunning photos of the Bosphorus from it. The island tour was well arranged as well. Me and my IG account are both happy with this experience.

The island was pretty but Riya and I loved exploring the Taksim Square. The colorful houses looked like something out of a movie. Had a lovely lunch of kebabs and falafel here. The hotel we stayed at that linkturkey provided was fantastic as well. Had nothing to complain about. Ten out of ten service.

This is a tour that’s perfect for Istanbul first-timers. IMO, it has it all. New Istanbul, old Istanbul, a cruise tour, and a quiet trip to the Buyukada. Hotel was great and the tours were seamless and smooth. Had a last-minute change of plans but the tour guide was fast at accommodating another option. Which made everything better.

I had great fun with ILINKTURKEY on this tour. Loved the hotel room and the Galata Tower. The trips to Balaat and Galata were very nice. The kids loved it too.
