What our clients say!
We've been back in Australia for 2 weeks now. It's winter here and the hot sunny days in Turkey seem like another world. We all had a wonderful week on the catamaran, 'Sweet Kitty' . The friends who sailed with us thoroughly enjoyed it and have thanked me for making the booking. The wind was a little elusive and we had to motor more often than we had hoped but she sailed well when we were able to. We found good moorings and enjoyed the local cuisine as well as visiting local shops and cooking on board other nights. The clear sea was a pleasure to swim and snorkel in.
The transport to and from the airport worked out well, as did the accommodation you booked for us for 2 nights after returning the boat. One couple left by hire car, booked through you, and that arrived as requested too. You have eight very satisfied clients. Thank you.
Thank you very much for arranging our Turkish Gulet holiday in July, 2009. This was our second boating holiday with Boating Turkey, and we absolutely loved it! We chartered the Miriam Sophie, a 28 metre luxury gulet with two other families, and cruised from Marmaris, through Turkey, to Symi and Rhodes. Our captain and his family, who were the crew, were very amenable, and did everything they could to make our trip fantastic. The food was superb, you really wonder how they can whip up such great dishes on a boat! The coves and islands we visited were all gorgeous, and the highlight I think was our 3 nights in Symi, the harbour was just gorgeous, with Italian colonial architecture and brilliant cafes, then the following 2 nights were spent in little coves with the most magnificent blue water to swim in. The captain also took us to his home port in Turkey, Green Village, which was delightful.
The itinerary was very flexible, and crew happy to accommodate our choices. The boat was immaculately maintained, the cabins were large and roomy, the bathrooms were spacious and had a proper shower and toilet. There was loads of deck space both up front with sunbeds for all, and at the rear, which was enormous. We loved to sleep on deck, falling asleep with the stars at night. The captain was very skilled, we were amazed how he could manoevre such a large boat into tight spaces.
All in all, we had a brilliant experience. The booking and organization process was extremely simple, easy and smooth, and Necmi was very patient with us as we changed plans several times during the booking and departure period. The drinks etc were all pre-ordered via the net.
If you want a truly relaxing holiday, the sun and breeze in your face and not a care in the world, you can't beat this. No TV (they did actually have TV but we didn't tell the kids that) no phones, no worries.....
We spent a lot of time going through travel brochures and surfing the
internet in researching our Turkish boating holiday.
After lots of false starts with other boating brokers who did not respond
speedily or who only answered one or two of our questions, we found the
Boating Turkey website and never looked back. The site was very clearly
laid out with an extensive list of available boats along with quality
photos. Our questions around boats and suggested itineraries were responded
to quickly and effectively, and we always felt that we were getting
considered opinions and advice rather than rushed and incomplete responses.
The result: The boat and her crew were outstanding - a perfect match to our
requirements and exactly as promised by the staff who helped us at Boating
Turkey. Their staff could not have been more courteous and helpful, both in
the booking process, and helping with some extra supplies on the day of
departure and getting our family to the boat quickly and efficiently whilst
making sure everything was in order with the captain and boat before they
waved us off.
We recommend their services with confidence and pass on our thanks for
helping with a great holiday experience.

Thanks again for Boating Turkey arranging our yacht charter holiday. We had a great week on the water around Gocek.
