What our clients say!
From the initial planning stage in November 2012, right through to our departure on September 7th, 2013 Necmi the manager of the tour from Boating Turkey was superb. He communicated very well and promptly by e mail, explained everything clearly and arranged the two gulets to work together exactly as I'd asked him to. Our mini flotilla sailed like clockwork, both sets of crews friendly, helpful and great fun too. The food was out of this world and all in all everyone on our tour comprising of six Australians , two Americans and seventeen British all loved the experience, many wanting me to organise it again as our tour covered the southern Dodecanese Islands which were a beautiful experience for all.
Thank you for your help in finding us the gulet Remo in Göceck. We had a wonderful time with our two grand children. The owner and his two sons were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was amazing, the elder son is a great cook! They did everything to make our trip pleasant and were very patient with the two boys who were very lively (!) and not easy with their food.
If I had one regret it was that I am used to eating a lot of fruit and there was hardly ever any. Maybe I should have asked? My fault I guess. Also, it would be more convenient for those passengers who stay in a hotel before their cruise to be picked up and brought directly to the boat.,we/our taxi did not know where to go to find the boat and expected us to walk around the port carrying our heavy luggage in search of the gulet. Luckily the captain's son came to help us after a while! Would definetely book with you again, it was an ideal holiday with children, also thank you for recommending Efe Hotel in Göceck it was ideal with small children: well located and the pool was most appreciated(they never wanted to get out!).
Thanks to Boating Turkey. We Just completed a great 5 days trip to Göcek. We are 3 (60 years schoolmates) friends. Mr Necmi was extremely helpful in planning our vacation. The Boat was Sun Odyssey 37 (JAMBOO) was middle age (2000 model) but very lovely lady. The price was very reasonable, the boat was in very good condition withot any problem during the sailing and had everything that we needed. The collection of the boat and the handling back was very easy and efficent. We were also very impressed by the attention to detail upon embarkation and disembarkation. The whole trip was excellent. We enjoy departing from Fethiye Ece marina and doing a round trip around Fethiye, Göcek Bay continuing to Ekincik My Marina. Göcek was wonderful we spend four days in Göcek and found numerous little bays to swim in and also pleasand bay side restaurants for dinner.. Thank to Boating Turkey, Mr Necmi and all the staff for making our sailing a memorable one.

Your Dalaman pick-up and drop off was ready to go and Gocek was a nice little town with easy shopping and free delivery, we stayed the previous night at Gorkem Apartments which were absolutely superb with a fabulous breakfast. It was easy to both depart from and return to the marina, we sailed to the East and made a number of stops including stern tie-ups and swing anchor and mooring evenings. 14 days is essential if you want to relax and spend a couple of nights in the towns like Kalkan and Kas where we found loads of good restaurants esp Zula and Ottoman in Kalkan.
As for the sailing we all had a great time with Beaufort 2-7, the hand over was very simple and thorough, the staff were very helpful and the yacht was ready to go several hours earlier than the 16.00 hrs so we sailed out that afternoon and had our first meal at a 'jetty restaurant' a couple of hours away.
The Turkish marine regulations for sanitation and mooring in many of the bays mean beautiful clean water to swim in straight off the boat morning noon and night. The neighbouring yacht at one place told us this was, (along with New Zealand) the best place to sail. As to yourself, you answered every email quickly, sorted out any problem that arose, and when we had a gear breakage it was fixed as quickly as possible. Many thanks and we hope to come again but it is a long journey from N.Z
