What our clients say!
I booked a trip for a cabin charter that was going going from to Greek islands with Necmi from Boating Turkey. This was second time going on a gulet. First time it was wonderful, very well arranged. This time the cabin charter operatör cancelled the trip 2 days before departure due to a political problem with Greece but the cabin charter operator did not replace it with another boat similiar that I booked.
I communicated with Necmi about not being happy with it and he immediately (with an hour) arranged another beautiful boat (Sumru Sultan) for me. This boat was going out of Marmaris instead of Bodrum. But Necmi helped on this immediately and he arranged all the transfer for free of charge. The drivers were on time and very cordial. I had am amazing time on board and highly recommend Necmi as an agent.
Salute to Capitan Yavuz Kose and Cook Serkan Babayigit (nicknamed Captain Cook by our group).
Along with Boating Turkey they were responsible for one of the most enjoyable weeks we as a family with our in law children have had in our lives.
This was a dream come true to us as we have been dreaming about this cruise for 6 years as we did plan a similar trip 6 years ago, but had to abandon it as 2 of the couples pulled out. My first contact with Boating Turkey for this trip was already in May last year and I had a very responsive feedback from Necmi on every e-mail that I have sent to him. He was very helpful in assisting us in all the arrangements.
Due to a limited budget we chartered the smallest boat that we could get hold of, but we were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the interior of the boat. The two smaller cabins were a bit uncomfortable but fine for the two younger couples in our group. We fortunately experienced excellent weather and could therefore spend all the time on the deck. Gathering as a family on the foredeck while cruising was a real family binding experience.
Our captain and chef were excellent hosts as they were always there but never intruding into our privacy despite the limited circulation space. Yavuz gave us a feeling of having everything under control at all times even during a very rough spot on the open sea when we were cruising against a very strong wind. Compliments to our wonderful chef Serkan who had the ability to prepare the most wonderful meals in his small kitchen. Lunch and dinner was always a pleasant surprise with the fresh fish speared by then at night something very special.
Even to us as South Africans with a very weak currency the trip was very affordable and goes highly recommended. It was an unforgettable week on the Turkish coast.

I am writing to thank all your team for a wonderful Boating holiday experience. The boat was clean and very well maintained. We also felt your staff were very professional and pleasant. We very much enjoyed sailing in Turkey , especially the Gocek islands. We would have no reservations in recommending Boating Turkey and hope that you expand to other parts if the world!
