On the first day, our gulet will be anchored at Bodrum harbour for dinner and overnight stay (The private groups have the chance to leave Bodrum harbour for overnight on a close bay to Bodrum). Bodrum has a history that goes back to the 12 th century B.C. The city which was called 'Halicarnassus' was the birthplace of Herodotus; the 'Father of History' who lived in the 5th century B.C. The 'Mausoleum' of King Mausolus (350 B.C.) which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World is in this city. The only structure that survived from the Classical Era is the Amphitheatre. It is one of the oldest theatres in Anatolia with a capacity of 13.000 guests, and is still hosting many shows and concerts for the art-lovers in Bodrum. Another place that you should visit first at your arrival in Bodrum is the landmark of the city 'Castle of Saint Peter'.

'Myndos Gate' through which Alexander the Great entered Halicarnassus is another place that you should not miss.

We enjoyed a wonderful vacation on your gulets. The crew was terrific. They were capable, attentive and fun. They offered great ideas for anchorages and side trips. The crew was extremely patient with our whole group and they were very nice to our children. Safety and comfort were their priorities neither was ever sacrificed. The cook produced delicious and plentiful meals from his cozy galley. Those meals were great highlights of our experiience. The gulets were clean and quite comfortable. Add great weather, amazing water and scenery with great friends it all adds up to a wonderful vacation. Thank you for all you did in pulling this trip together for us. We recommend your services to any who ask. You were terrific in our long planning phase and you were nice to pitch in when our friends needed help with their rental car experiences on the inland portion of the trip. Please feel comfortable in using us as a reference for your work and that of your crew. Our best,

Dear Necmi,
Everything went very well. The yacht – Dufour 385 – was in a good condition and, as I discovered, very easy to steer, also when pushing back. Gocek is always a good place to start, with a lot of restaurants in small bays nearby. Fethye is only a few hours sailing away. The one-way charter is not a bad choice, because the relatively long way from Fethye/Gocek gulf to Marmaris with less places convenient to stop has to be taken into account only once. That offers the chance to visit more places, drop the anchor in more bays, than in case one has to think about returning to the marina of origin in time.

All in all, we enjoyed the trip very much and unexpectedly, it was as warm in September as it was end of July.

This year I don't think I have a chance to sail once more, but next year at the earliest convenience, when weather condition are preferable I will….

We had a great time. Boating Turkey were very professional and helpful at both ends. Halcyon was also a good boat, albeit I reckon a lazyjack mainsail rather than vertical battens might be preferable next time. We were pleased with all the other features of the boat. We have recommended the trip to our friends here.
