Sile and Agva Tour
If you have discovered everything there is to know and see the magnificent city of Istanbul and immersing into the rich culture and history, you should also have a taste of the rural life close to the great metropolis. One of the most unusual and unbelievable tours takes you to meet the traditional small settlements on the Black Sea coast. We will discover and meet two small fishing villages, named Şile and Ağva, located not far from Istanbul.

Black Sea Tour Itinerary
The Black Sea tour starts early in the morning when we will pick you up from your hotel at about 8:30. We shall escape the city, heading northeast on the Anatolian side, arriving shortly in Şile. This small Black Sea fishing town is a great discovery, showing a part of the Turkish culture that someone who only limits to Istanbul can never meet. Idyllically located on rocks, this small fishing town is also a beach destination, with crystal clear waters and a pleasing climate, as well as being known for its special open-weave cotton fabric, the Şile Bezi. In this beautiful destination, you will have the chance to take a walk along the harbor or relax in front of a cup of tea, in a beautiful café situated on a hilltop and overlooking the Şile Lighthouse.
Unforgettable Black Sea Experience
Continuing our way through picturesque little villages nestled along the sea, we discover small fragments of traditional life everywhere. Particularly charming, the villages of Kabakoz and Suayipli are like an open air museum, showing pieces of life and culture that cannot be found elsewhere. These small fishing villages seem to be stuck in time and you will be astonished by the friendliness of the locals, continuing to live this way for hundreds of years. Continuing our way, deep in the forest and between the Yeşilçay and Göksu rivers that flow into the Black Sea, we will discover Ağva, set in a lush and rich landscape. A perfect way to unwind and admire the sights of Ağva is by taking a boat ride down the Göksu River. After this plunge deep into the charming village life and surrounding nature with its magnificent views of the sea and bluffs, you will understand why this journey is so special.

Getting Back to Istanbul
On the way back to Istanbul, we will take the forest route. This region, blessed with a mild and damp climate, features an idyllic forest that we will use to make our final stop. Hidden among the green and lush vegetation, we will relax in front of a cup of tea, swaying in a hammock at a charming forest café. This is the perfect ending to a day far from the city walls. You will be taken back to your hotel fully rejuvenated and ready to continue your quest in Istanbul. With the drop off service, our Sile and Agva Tour will be ended.
