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.....
We had a great time on the Remzi Yilmaz
Everything was exellent, the boat is splendid, Captain is a very nice man, he did some special efforts to find the best Bay's for us.
The cook did also his best to give us delicious meals, we appreciate this very much.
And we dont forget the two young people who were always friendly and helpful.
We also like to thank you and your colleagues for the perfect organisation of this trip ,and also many thanks to keep our luggages in deposit the day of departure.
So, we like to wish all of you the best for the future and lets say until next year.

I confirm we had a very good time in Turkey with the boat provided by you. The service was excellent, before, during and after the sailing period. The people were kind and helpful and the boat was well equipped and maintained.
Thank you again for your assistance and very appreciated help.
I wish you a good day and good work

We chartered a boat via Boating Turkey for 1 week in August 2012, and had an excellent cruise.
From the moment we booked in March 2012 till embarcation and disembarcation- Necmi helped us with all our queries to ensure that the trip was perfect and that our satisfaction guaranteed.
The crew was constantly going out of their way to make sure we were satisfied- thus I take this opportunity to thank Captain Yilderim- our chef Yukcel- and of course Recep who helped us with absolutely everything and kept the boat clean at all times.
I would easily recommend Boating Turkey to any friends or family seeking a cruise / charter in Turkey.
