We had a fantastic sailing week in Turkey, and Boating Turkey offered us a seemless experience. We were a diverse group of Italians, Polish, Israeli, Moroccan/Swedish, Brazilian and Spanish - not an easy group to deal with. Despite that, and our numerous changes of mind, everything was taken care of smoothly and effortlessly. We recommend them highly.
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.....
Thanks Necmi for a wonderful vacation in Greek and Turkish waters! Everything about our vacation was perfect and I can truly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone who wants a great gulet sailing vacation.
The crew on board was amazing, extremely professional and friendly. We really felt well taken care of throughout our vacation. Our biggest surprise was the quality of the food on board, it was superb, the chef did a wonderful job preparing delicious meals for us every day. I cannot think of anything negative to say about Necmi Artar / Boating Turkey, we will without a doubt use Boating Turkey service again for future gulet sailing vacations. Hopefully with Yacup as our captain!
Boating Turkey is indeed the correct choice, we had a fantastic boating holiday.
Everything was up to expectation, the material was in perfect condition and the people did a very good job in introducing us.
I wish you a lot of success with your business
