We found Boating Turkey professional and the service to be of a very high standard. We were particularly impressed by the thoroughness of the technical briefing and the overall quality and cleanliness of the yacht. It was excellent value for money.
We would not hesitate to hire from you again.
Dear Boating Turkey Team
The boat was well maintained, Nizam was an excellent skipper and we also enjoyed his company -- A great fellow!The Apartment hotel was excellent. The woman who runs it was very nice to all of us and the place is clean and comfortable and priced right. We had a very nice vacation. Thank you for your help. We will try to do it again sometime with you.

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 Suleyman 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 can't wait to get back!

We really loved sailing in Turkey and everything was very professional. The boat was excellent and in fine conditions and the skipper was technically, as far as we can evaluate, very good. In the first day we change the itinerary that was initially (Marmaris â Bodrum) agreed with no problem and we did a bigger course and went to marvellous places and paradisiacal bays. We were so lucky that we even saw two Dolphins and one sperm-whale!!
