What our clients say!
Our group of six travelled from the USA to charter the 3 cabin Oceanis 50 that you arranged for us. I have chartered yachts many times over the last 30 years. Our experience with your agency was flawless, from the information provided about our yacht, her equipment and condition, to your timely response to my many inquiries. The Port of Gocek, and the Skopea Marina operation is truly impressive, which comes as no surprise when you see some of the fine yachts that are berthed at the facility. Your contractor that handles the inspection, care and maintenance of the fleet is extremely professional and patient. We were able to get underway early on the first day of our charter. Our group likes to sail, and over the course of the week we were able to sail as far East as Kalkan and as far West as Ekincik, enjoying the beautiful and rugged scenery along the way. It was also a pleasant surprise to be able to communicate with such ease everywhere we visited. While we had the capability of six languages on board, the easiest for us was English, and it was spoken everywhere we went. In summary, our yacht was well equipped and in excellent condition, and our group had a terrific experience that I would recommend to others without reservation.
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.
Indeed we had a great week in Orhanye, and I guess what I appreciated most was your flexibility and reactivity during the booking period. Then I have to say I was a bit surprised not to see you at the marina and finding out that you were actually subcontracting to Yelkenli Yachhing. Also we had some discussions with them regarding the boat description which was not exactly as you had told us (eg. regarding the fans in the cabins). But in the end we were lucky that the weather was not so hot, so it all went fine. The team at Yelkenli Yatching also took a bit of time to explain us about the nice places around the bay, and their recommendation proved quite good.
All in all I'll be definitely checking again Boating Turkey for my next sailing holidays ! Feel free to quote me for any of this.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Some of us had been on a gulet before as you know but for my brother and his wife it was their first time.
They like us had a great time and even though my sister in law cannot swim, the crew were very kind and took her ashore so she could wade and bathe in the shallow waters every time we moored up in a bay. Your service was first class from the moment Deborah started dealing with you to them moment we sadly said goodbye. The crew, JJ, Abdullah and Mamet were excellent hosts and would not let us do a thing. Their little surprises for my birthday were brilliant and the food was fantastic and the boat very comfortable. I am sure that we will all be back, with more family and when we do we will be back in touch with you to book again.
