What our clients say!
From our first moment on board when we were shown around the bedrooms, bathrooms, dining area and so on I knew I would be having a once in a lifetime experience. The polished wood, the royal blue shade cloths and sunbathing areas all added to the feeling of luxury during our two weeks saling the stunning turkish waters and visiting the beautiful bays and sea side villages and ports along the coast. Every little wish of ours was immediately considered and acted upon by the crew and the Captain made sure every single day of a new view and always the best place to moor to please us. This included the use of the air conditioning at night which in late August was absolutely necessary and something we had been worrying about, though without any fuss our nights were as cool as we wanted by having the aircon on, thanks for that! The food was excellent, never boring, always very delicious and always served with grace and professionalism by the crew. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean, the whole boat for that matter washed down and scrubbed regularly and if there was the smallest problem in a bathroom for example it was dealt with immediately. We all felt that the two weeks was very good value for money and I would not hesitate to recommend your company to all of my friends.
Best regards to you all,
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!
Peachtree City, GA. USA
We spent a lot of time going through travel brochures and surfing the
internet in researching our Turkish boating holiday.
After lots of false starts with other boating brokers who did not respond
speedily or who only answered one or two of our questions, we found the
Boating Turkey website and never looked back. The site was very clearly
laid out with an extensive list of available boats along with quality
photos. Our questions around boats and suggested itineraries were responded
to quickly and effectively, and we always felt that we were getting
considered opinions and advice rather than rushed and incomplete responses.
The result: The boat and her crew were outstanding - a perfect match to our
requirements and exactly as promised by the staff who helped us at Boating
Turkey. Their staff could not have been more courteous and helpful, both in
the booking process, and helping with some extra supplies on the day of
departure and getting our family to the boat quickly and efficiently whilst
making sure everything was in order with the captain and boat before they
waved us off.
We recommend their services with confidence and pass on our thanks for
helping with a great holiday experience.
