Our charter from was 24/5 until 7/6 2014 from Marmaris for two weeks. We were group of ten, from Australia and New Zealand. I started to communicate with Necmi from Boating Turkey some months before the charter and found him to be most helpful from the start. Organising a trip like this for a group is disconcerting to say the least but Necmi helped to make it much easier by responding immediately to any questions I had. His helpful suggestions including wonderful Turkish wines were most welcome.
Our charter was onboard the “Azra Deniz” a 26 meter gulet complete with a crew of 3. She was not a five star but very comfortable in every way. The crew were sensational, the skipper, the chef and our ever smiling deckhand were always helpful and our itinerary included some of the wonderful villages, coves and historic sites of Turquoise Coast. We also has a visit to Simi in Greece which we all enjoyed. The weather was very kind to us, so there was plenty of swimming, canoeing and sunbathing, lots of time for relaxation as well. Each night we would decide on where we would go the next day and what we would do but most of the time we followed our skipper’s suggestions, he really ensured we has quite diverse experiences both in scenery and activities.
Our chef constantly prepared the most amazing meals, to good in fact as the waistlines slowly expanded! We were just amazed at his skills.
Our group had the most wonderful holiday, our crew certainly made a major contribution to this. The coast of Turkey is exquisite and its people are so warm and friendly and the food and wine superb.
Necmi came to meet us when we arrived on the boat in Marmaris and we appreciated that he did. He drove down from Bodrum. He really knows his bussiness and that is so important when you are organising travel plans from so far away.
Thank you so much for your help Necmi.
We all had an amazing time one one will remember for a long time to come.

From the initial planning stage in November 2012, right through to our departure on September 7th, 2013 Necmi the manager of the tour from Boating Turkey was superb. He communicated very well and promptly by e mail, explained everything clearly and arranged the two gulets to work together exactly as I'd asked him to. Our mini flotilla sailed like clockwork, both sets of crews friendly, helpful and great fun too. The food was out of this world and all in all everyone on our tour comprising of six Australians , two Americans and seventeen British all loved the experience, many wanting me to organise it again as our tour covered the southern Dodecanese Islands which were a beautiful experience for all.
We were very happy with our sailing experience and the service you have provided. It was all professionally handled by your company and we would recommend your charter company anytime. We loved Turkey and its people. Will return.
He arranged our flotilla of boats
That anchored near cliffs with goats
Necmi's his name
Turquoise coast his game
He'll arrange any vacation that floats
We enjoyed a wonderful vacation on your gulets. The crew was terrific. They were capable, attentive and fun. They offered great ideas for anchorages and side trips. The crew was extremely patient with our whole group and they were very nice to our children. Safety and comfort were their priorities neither was ever sacrificed. The cook produced delicious and plentiful meals from his cozy galley. Those meals were great highlights of our experiience. The gulets were clean and quite comfortable. Add great weather, amazing water and scenery with great friends it all adds up to a wonderful vacation. Thank you for all you did in pulling this trip together for us. We recommend your services to any who ask. You were terrific in our long planning phase and you were nice to pitch in when our friends needed help with their rental car experiences on the inland portion of the trip. Please feel comfortable in using us as a reference for your work and that of your crew. Our best,
Cindy and Jeffrey Traum
