What our clients say!
We just returned from one of the most decadent, luxurious, and relaxing vacations we have ever taken with our family. What a lovely surprise this was as I found out about Boating Turkey online. After reading the testimonials from other clients and contacting a few of them directly to get their first hand opinions, I was convinced by their rave reviews and felt confident that the trip would be a success.
Necmi Artar, the tour manager, was a pleasure to work with. Together, we mapped out several destinations to sail to in the Gulf of Bodrum. Necmi was always a pleasure to work with. Every time I emailed him he replied immediately. I found this comforting and never felt the need to speak with Necmi by phone, or worried that some part of the trip would fall through the cracks. He answered every question I had with virtual smile on his face.
The gulet we were on was immaculate, and very spacious. We never felt overcrowded. The crew were very accommodating. In fact, part way through the trip we decided that we wanted to spend some evenings in ports that had entertainment. The captain of the ship fully accommodated our request by turning the boat around and sailing in the other direction towards Greece. We were on the sea during the day and in some fantastic ports by night.
Lastly, the food was fresh and very tasty. I would certainly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone who asks me about renting a private yacht in Turkey or Greece.
Our group of six travelled from the USA to charter the 3 cabin Oceanis 50 that you arranged for us. I have chartered yachts many times over the last 30 years. Our experience with your agency was flawless, from the information provided about our yacht, her equipment and condition, to your timely response to my many inquiries. The Port of Gocek, and the Skopea Marina operation is truly impressive, which comes as no surprise when you see some of the fine yachts that are berthed at the facility. Your contractor that handles the inspection, care and maintenance of the fleet is extremely professional and patient. We were able to get underway early on the first day of our charter. Our group likes to sail, and over the course of the week we were able to sail as far East as Kalkan and as far West as Ekincik, enjoying the beautiful and rugged scenery along the way. It was also a pleasant surprise to be able to communicate with such ease everywhere we visited. While we had the capability of six languages on board, the easiest for us was English, and it was spoken everywhere we went. In summary, our yacht was well equipped and in excellent condition, and our group had a terrific experience that I would recommend to others without reservation.
It was my first experience to book sailboat and go sailing without hiring a captain. I found in Internet BoatingTurkey and all my booking process was just easy and smooth, Necmi answered all my questions, made for me all appointments and when a came to Marina for boat - all papers and formalities was done, so I just walk on the boat!
Especially GREAT THANKS to people from Yelkenli in Marti Marina!! They do just great job with no headache and really do everything to keep your vacations easy and happy! There was few issues that was solved without any problems. I've met before guys from another charter companies in Italy and Croatia that tried to cheat you at the boat check out, but this is not about Yelkenli Yachting at all!! Best loyalty to the customers I ever seen! I don't even think to go sailing with another company!
Next time I'll go sailing only with BoatingTurkey for sure! Great THANKS to all of you!!
Best wishes of success for you and your company,
Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation cruising the Gulf of Gokova. The gulet was extremely comfortable, the crew friendly, and the food exceptional! We had loads of fun swimming, snorkeling, and playing backgammon and Okey with captain and crew. Your company is very professional and provides excellent value. We will recommend you to our friends and family and will be sure to contact you when we return to Turkey.
