What our clients say!
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.
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.
For the second year in a row we booked a charter trough Boating Turkey.
Just like last year everything went well. We had a few problems with a suitcase that was lost in travel, but Necmi supported us perfectly. He made sure that the luggage was delivered in a practical way. He also organized transfers from and to the airport with very good service. We could call him any time when we needed a change or a confirmation and we got answers very accurate and efficiently. I think that my next charter will be in Turkey again. With Boating Turkey.
Friends of ours had hired a Gullet with Boating Turkey and recommended them so our family of 5 ( 3 sons between 7 and 13) hired a Gullet for a week in early August and motored the Gocek Marmaris Gocek route. The Gullet, Remo was captained by its owner Celal and his two competent sons Cem and Erdem. Celal is a very seasoned mariner with more than 40 years at sea so we felt very safe in his Gullet. Although we did not hoist the sails we still experienced the sensation of being on a sailing boat in the open sea travelling to and from Marmaris and witnessed some spectacular sunrises.
The food was exceptional especially given the size of a galley kitchen and each day we ate very well. Celal chose idyllic locations for daily swimming and snorkelling and our boys had great fun kayaking, waterskiing and of course jumping off the boat! Some highlights on shore were visiting the ancient city of Kaunos, the rock tombs and seeing the endangered loggerhead turtles.
Boating Turkey were very easy to communicate with and quick to respond. We hope to revisit the Turkish coast and would not hesitate using Boating Turkey again.
