We just returned from one of the most decadent, luxurious, and relaxing vacations we have ever taken with our family. What a lovely surprise this was as I found out about Boating Turkey online. After reading the testimonials from other clients and contacting a few of them directly to get their first hand opinions, I was convinced by their rave reviews and felt confident that the trip would be a success.
Necmi Artar, the tour manager, was a pleasure to work with. Together, we mapped out several destinations to sail to in the Gulf of Bodrum. Necmi was always a pleasure to work with. Every time I emailed him he replied immediately. I found this comforting and never felt the need to speak with Necmi by phone, or worried that some part of the trip would fall through the cracks. He answered every question I had with virtual smile on his face.
The gulet we were on was immaculate, and very spacious. We never felt overcrowded. The crew were very accommodating. In fact, part way through the trip we decided that we wanted to spend some evenings in ports that had entertainment. The captain of the ship fully accommodated our request by turning the boat around and sailing in the other direction towards Greece. We were on the sea during the day and in some fantastic ports by night.
Lastly, the food was fresh and very tasty. I would certainly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone who asks me about renting a private yacht in Turkey or Greece.
I recommend www.boatingturkey.net for the corretness : Too bad we could not start due to a family matter. I wrote to Boating Turkey in pointing out the problem and today I received back the advance money. thanks, though we did not have insurance, we did not lose almost nothing! Next time we will do it again with Boating Turkey

We had a wonderful time on the Janneau 53 Jessie A. The organisation,the transfers, the condition of the boat and the assistance of Mrs. Zerrin and Mr. Turgut for the boat introduction and the purchase of food and drinks were very useful and to to our full satisfaction. It was also advantageous to arrive one day earlier. This made it possible to to do the purchase and the takeover of the boat in no hurry and without stress. There were small things, like a blocked speedlog, some instrument settings, one toilet water flush and the sails, which needed some minor adjustment or repair by ourselves. However they did not at all harm our beautiful sailtrip in Turkey.
We shall with great pleasure contact you again for our next sail charter in Turkey.
We were very happy with Boating Turkey and felt that they represented us well. First of all they were quite responsive to our emails and patient with all of our many questions. When it came time to choose the Gulet they recommended the ones that they thought would best suit us, subject to our needs and budget, and did a very good job of guiding us toward the best one for us. I felt that they had good knowledge of the gulets and when we arrived at our yacht on the first day it was exactly as they had represented it, so that we had no disappointments. Most of the information exchange such as beverage selections, crew lists, requests for transportation, itinerary selection, etc. were dealt with efficiently and therefor the entire trip went very smooth. I also found that they had the best web site for viewing facts, pictures and floor plans of the boats. Our group highly recommends Boating Turkey to any traveler planning a trip to this wonderful country
