What people are saying about Marmara Region

A magnificent Island. The ferry dropped us off on Buyukada Island. The restaurants right by the sea offer great views and are very good and not too expensive. Count around 10 € per person. The carriage ride was also very pleasant, for 120lyra. The equally pleasant ferry ride! Really, I recommend. It was the best day of my stay!

we made the islands on foot because we did not want to take a carriage the poor horses seemed to exhaust. we have to eat in a restaurant by the sea. you have to take whatever you want because each time the waiter wanted to add something to us. eat we are too watchful by the server s is a bit annoying.

I liked the trip, we went only to Buyukada. In January there are few people, there are no queues, the views are wonderful. Dress warmly or take blankets, it is very cold on the ferry. I advise you to take an early ferry to stay longer on the island.

The service was very good, especially handling our check-in to the boat, because my mother and I arrived half an hour earlier and they offered a complementary soft drink. Also, the staff was friendly and helpful. Thank you for this experience.
