What our clients say!
We had a wonderful week holidaying on board one of Boating Turkey's gulets in September 2016. We left from Marmaris, visited Rhodes, Bozborum, a number of Turkish bays, Datca, Symi, Nisyros, Kos and disembarked at Bodrum. We found Necmi Artar very straightforward and helpful to deal with during the planning and arrival phase and it was great to be able to be so flexible in choosing our itinerary. The crew were very friendly and keen to help and Volkan was a wonderful cook and spearfisherman! We would definitely be very happy to use Boating Turkey again and Turkey remains one of our favourite places in the world. If only it was closer to New Zealand!
We were very happy with our sailing experience and the service you have provided. It was all professionally handled by your company and we would recommend your charter company anytime. We loved Turkey and its people. Will return.
I was very content with the rental, everything went smooth. Especially the effort to fix the broken gear box in Anastasia was well appreciated. In my boat Lioness everything went smooth. I already gave some technical feedback regarding mooring lines etc at the check out. One small thing my crew wanted to mention is that the towels could be of different colors in order to recognize them better during the week.
Looking forward to sailing with Boating Turkey again.
Boating Turkey Review - September/October 2015
From my very first contact with Necmi at Boating Turkey a year before our trip, I had confidence in what to expect due to his prompt and professional dealings via email to me in New Zealand. Necmi assisted us with both the ideal Gulet and itinerary for our group of 8 adults and 3 children all within our required budget.
The Gulet La Finale was a lovely, large boat that met the needs of everyone in our group - activities for the kids, spaces for relaxation and social gatherings and areas for those needing to do business. The crew of 4 ably led by their captain were wonderful - all professional, yet friendly and joined in with our activities when invited to do so. We felt like they were there to please us, at times seeming to go beyond what was required of them. They included us in decisions about where to moor overnight and when to stop off or move on and were also accommodating with things like wi-fi and air conditioning. They also recommended places to visit on shore and used the tender to transfer us to land. The food was excellent and varied. We chose for Boating Turkey to purchase drinks on our behalf and this worked well and was a reasonable option. The 6 cabins included 2 master cabins and 4 en-suites - at times they were too hot for sleeping so some of our group slept under the stars. We all agreed that 7 days was not quite long enough! We plan to do a similar trip again in the future and would use Boating Turkey to assist without hesitation. Thank you to all that ensured we had a wonderful experience cruising
