Thanks again for Boating Turkey arranging our yacht charter holiday. We had a great week on the water around Gocek.
Whilst booking Boating Turkey were professional and efficient and provided a number of alternative options for us. The booking process could not have been smoother. Even though we arrived early the boat was ready to go and the staff where extremely helpful. When we next arrange to sail in Turkey, we will use Boating Turkey without hesitation
We booked with Boating Turkey only two weeks before we were due to leave at the busiest time of the season. We were struggling to find any other company that could find a boat that met our needs and Boating Turkey found us two boats that were exactly what we were looking for. The descriptions on the web site exactly met the boats we got and it was great to be able to get an exact description of the yachts. They were happy to make all the arrangements including transfers. The agents they dealt with were all really helpful and we felt looked after from the moment we landed until the moment we left.
Dear Necmi and Rusen,
Thank you again for your assistance in planning our Turkish gulet trip. I highly recommend Boating Turkey for anyone considering a gulet charter trip in Turkey. When I first began reaching out to brokers, I was connected to Eastern European agencies who could not answer very basic questions about the boats or the itineraries. When I found Boating Turkey, and began to work with Necmi, I was delighted to learn that the brokerage is based in Bodrum. They are intimately involved with the local gulet business, and were extremely helpful in planning our trip. Necmi was able to provide several gulet options for our group of 16. Once we decided on the Ametist A, Necmi and Rusen were always quick to respond and helpful in making changes and additions per our needs.
Upon our arrival in Bodrum, Rusen was on the boat to greet us. He stayed for a couple of hours to make sure that everything was ready prior to our departure. We made last minute changes to catering and water toys for the week, and Rusen was happy to help with the logistics. He seemed genuinely reluctant to leave until he was assured the crew was ready to leave and we had everything we needed.
As for the boat and crew, we could not have been happier. Captain Recep was well attuned to our wishes, and constantly found beautiful, secluded and protected coves for swimming, hiking ashore, and relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. We marveled at his ability to park a beamy 27 foot boat in a 25 foot wide space at the dock. Chef Süleyman earned a round of applause at every meal. It was unreal how he could produce such varied and plentiful meals from such a small space. Basar, Ismail, and Olgun were excellent deck hands who quickly learned our likes and thoughtfully attended to all of our needs. The week would not have been the same without such an outstanding crew.
Thank you again to Necmi and Rusen for helping us put together a truly wonderful vacation. We cant wait to get back!
