We loved your gulet trip and would recommend everything about it. Your communication was excellent throughout, which is so important when you're organising something from a different country. The boat was luxurious. It was great to have so much space on it. The crew were stars! They were totally competent (as we occasionally saw in contrast to another boat), and wonderfully friendly and helpful. Captain Kansu always explained the routes for the day, with options if we wanted, and chose lovely bays for anchorage. The crew were always happy to take us ashore in the inflatable, and haul kayaks in and out whenever we liked. It was a great holiday!

Our recent two week holiday with Captain Cevat, Hassan & Bulent onboard Yildizhanlar 11 with 3 other couples from Australia, I would describe as a wonderful life experience that was thoroughly enjoyable with lovely memories!
Where to start? The scenery from Bodrum to Gocek was incredible, the swimming in such clear tranqual waters amazing.
The food Bulent cooked was absolutely devine, always varied and obviously lots of preparation and thought put into each meal, we ate like kings and queens! The chips in the morning omelette, the fresh fish and chicken dishes were a real hit!
Captain Cevat was a delight, his knowledge of the areas we travelled, his expertise sailing and handling his gulet was obvious and reassuring, we felt very safe and looked after. We appreciated that Captain Cevat took the time to accompany us on some of our excursions, we obviously learnt more about the surroundings by having him with us to ask any questions and knowing where to go to get the best view.
But the real hidden treasure onboard Yildizhanlar 11 was Hassan, his gentle, obliging manner to our every whim was just amazing. Hassan made a point to remember what each of us liked to drink upon waking, he would have a lovely cup of turkish tea, coffee or apple tea ready for us. All throughout the day, Hassan made sure we were comfortable, well fed and watered (including the best “knock your socks off” gin and tonics!) he took care of “all” our domestic duties. Hassan did this in a very unobtrusive and professional manner, it was an absolute delight to of met him. (His smile is priceless!)
I could not fault our trip, it was just what we were looking for, lots of relaxing, reading, eating, relaxing, sleeping, eating, drinking, sleeping!
I hope other Australians take advantage of this wonderful adventure and have a wonderful trip on a gulet like us.
We had a wonderful vacation. The boat was very nice and clean when we arrived. We had a defect of one of the engines, but that was correctly taken care off. Also the inspection of the boat in the beginning and at the end went very efficient and kind. We would certainly recommend your services to other people. We are even thinking of coming back next year, but then starting in Fethiye.
I have set my husband in cc, maybe he can still add some comment.
