Dear Boating Turkey Team
In one word it was superb, very good product, professional service, very talented skipper who makes safety a priority so his passengers can relax by knowing they are being very well taken care of. I particularly appreciated your advice at the begining of our contact, and especially the speed with which you responded to my questions and concerns. Thank you, I will certainly be in touch with you for next sail away.

What a great vacation we had! Our sailing journey along the turquoise coast was magnificent. From the very beginning when our flights were delayed and then changed, we were supported by Boating Turkey to ensure our safe and timely arrival to Bodrum for our sailing adventure. Our yacht was waiting for us in pristine condition and met all our expectations and more (air conditioning). While sailing, we were provided with text messages if there were to be any sailing conditions that we should be aware of. We felt informed and confident so that we could enjoy our sailing and touring. We appreciated the initial charting discussions which gave us insight into harbors and islands that we might otherwise have missed, and these often became our favorite sailing destinations. We realize that we saw a very little of the Turkish coast and we look forward to the day when we can sail again with Boating Turkey. Keep up the good work and we look forward to sailing with you again.

Thank you very much for arranging our Turkish Gulet holiday in July, 2009. This was our second boating holiday with Boating Turkey, and we absolutely loved it! We chartered the Miriam Sophie, a 28 metre luxury gulet with two other families, and cruised from Marmaris, through Turkey, to Symi and Rhodes. Our captain and his family, who were the crew, were very amenable, and did everything they could to make our trip fantastic. The food was superb, you really wonder how they can whip up such great dishes on a boat! The coves and islands we visited were all gorgeous, and the highlight I think was our 3 nights in Symi, the harbour was just gorgeous, with Italian colonial architecture and brilliant cafes, then the following 2 nights were spent in little coves with the most magnificent blue water to swim in. The captain also took us to his home port in Turkey, Green Village, which was delightful.
The itinerary was very flexible, and crew happy to accommodate our choices. The boat was immaculately maintained, the cabins were large and roomy, the bathrooms were spacious and had a proper shower and toilet. There was loads of deck space both up front with sunbeds for all, and at the rear, which was enormous. We loved to sleep on deck, falling asleep with the stars at night. The captain was very skilled, we were amazed how he could manoevre such a large boat into tight spaces.
All in all, we had a brilliant experience. The booking and organization process was extremely simple, easy and smooth, and Necmi was very patient with us as we changed plans several times during the booking and departure period. The drinks etc were all pre-ordered via the net.
If you want a truly relaxing holiday, the sun and breeze in your face and not a care in the world, you can't beat this. No TV (they did actually have TV but we didn't tell the kids that) no phones, no worries.....
