What our clients say!
I would just like to thank Necmi Artar and all at Boating Turkey for their honesty and integrity. We chartered and paid for our yacht in May of this year but unfortunately at the last minute, due to illness, we were unable to take our holiday. We emailed Boating Turkey and told them and also that we understood that no refund could be paid as we cancelled just two weeks before the charter date. However, Boating Turkey managed to late charter the yacht that we had originally chartered for part of the charter term and immediately emailed me to say that there would be a refund sent to the value of the late charter fee within a couple of weeks, which I duly received. They did not have to do this (as we would never have known) and I would again thank them for their honesty and also for all their prior help with arranging the holiday in the first instance. We will certainly be chartering with them in 2015!
Thank you for your help in finding us the gulet Remo in Göceck. We had a wonderful time with our two grand children. The owner and his two sons were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was amazing, the elder son is a great cook! They did everything to make our trip pleasant and were very patient with the two boys who were very lively (!) and not easy with their food.
If I had one regret it was that I am used to eating a lot of fruit and there was hardly ever any. Maybe I should have asked? My fault I guess. Also, it would be more convenient for those passengers who stay in a hotel before their cruise to be picked up and brought directly to the boat.,we/our taxi did not know where to go to find the boat and expected us to walk around the port carrying our heavy luggage in search of the gulet. Luckily the captain's son came to help us after a while! Would definetely book with you again, it was an ideal holiday with children, also thank you for recommending Efe Hotel in Göceck it was ideal with small children: well located and the pool was most appreciated(they never wanted to get out!).
This is the second year that we have organised our sailing holiday through Boating Turkey. When we were planning our holiday in 2005 we stumbled across their website and were very glad that we did so . Necmi was extremely helpful providing us with lots of options to choose from and the prices were quite reasonable. In 2005 we sailed from Bodrum and this year after discussing our options with Necmi we sailed from Dalaman.
Both times the process ran extremely smoothly. The filling in of forms took next to no time and it was very easy to transfer our deposit and final payment from a UK bank account.
The yachts were in excellent shape and the service on the ground each time was very professional and welcoming. We would definitely choose Boating Turkey again for any future sailing trips. We haven't yet planned our holidays for 2007, but rather think that we might be emailing Boating Turkey once again.
We would like to give you some feedback on our experience on our recent boating holiday in Turkey.
We were very impressed with the service starting with the transfer from the airport to Skopea Marina. On arrival we were welcomed by very efficient and professional staff who briefed us under the shade of the trees. Inge was especially helpful giving us a lot of advice and information on the sailing area and conditions. We also found the magazine ‘The Bay Express’ very informative and we referred to it on a daily basis.
Our boat ‘Opal’ was well equipped and spotlessly clean with fresh new linen and towels. Everything on board was well maintained and operational.
We thoroughly enjoyed sailing in Turkey. We loved the friendly people, wonderful food, beautiful scenery and clear turquoise water. We were also very impressed by the concern for the ecology.
We will definitely be back to explore more of your beautiful coastline.
