What our clients say!
we just arrived home after a visit to Istanbul. We had a great trip on the gulet great boat, great crew, and fine food. Thanks for all your help in setting everything up and responding to all our queries. We'll do it again one of these days.
The most satisfying thing about booking through you was that everything we had hoped would happen, did. Transfers, food orders, the boat, cousel on where to explore, the whole package worked beautifully. Turkey itself was beautiful, friendly people and lovely food, plus the mix of ancient and contemporary both amazed and intrigued myself and my family. Our only issue was that 1 week was not enough next year, were booking for two!
We initially found the Boating Turkey website just by trawling the internet but once Necmi has responded to our first enquiry, we never looked any further. He was so helpful in helping us choose a route, answering all our questions and providing advice. In fact, he gave us travel tips for Istanbul and arranged many of our transfers and recommended hotels etc. Pretty much whatever we asked for - a great add-on service. There were four couples on our Gulet (Albatross A) together with three crew members. Our cruise departed from Fethiye and ended at Marmaris. We pretty much left everything to the crew on the basis that they had done it a few times and would know what worked. We were not disappointed and had a wonderful holiday. The crew were very good at keeping a low profile on board but at the same time maintained excellent levels of service. The food is legendary and we looked forward to every meal - full board is a must. I would have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey to anyone.
Our holiday was the most relaxing, laid-back and enjoyable holiday we have ever had. Everything ran smoothly from the moment we were greeted at the airport to our last day when the crew spent their free time with us just to make sure we got away okay. Our crew were fantastic - friendly, easy-going and happy to accomodate and anticipate our needs. The food was fantastic and while it was at first strange to let the crew do everything for us, by the end of the week we were so thoroughly relaxed we found it difficult to fend for ourselves when we returned home! We spent every night in a different bay and saw some of the most amazing, blue waters we have ever seen. There is nothing quite like waking up in a beautiful little bay to dive off the boat for that first swim of the day. We even go to meet Bardem the very friendly seal who put his head in our boat and was rewarded with a pat on the head. I have been raving about our Turkish holiday to anybody who will listen and I would highly recommend Boating Turkey to anybody considering a Turkish sailing experience. We hope to return one day!
