Boating Turkey Review - September/October 2015
From my very first contact with Necmi at Boating Turkey a year before our trip, I had confidence in what to expect due to his prompt and professional dealings via email to me in New Zealand. Necmi assisted us with both the ideal Gulet and itinerary for our group of 8 adults and 3 children all within our required budget.
The Gulet La Finale was a lovely, large boat that met the needs of everyone in our group - activities for the kids, spaces for relaxation and social gatherings and areas for those needing to do business. The crew of 4 ably led by their captain were wonderful - all professional, yet friendly and joined in with our activities when invited to do so. We felt like they were there to please us, at times seeming to go beyond what was required of them. They included us in decisions about where to moor overnight and when to stop off or move on and were also accommodating with things like wi-fi and air conditioning. They also recommended places to visit on shore and used the tender to transfer us to land. The food was excellent and varied. We chose for Boating Turkey to purchase drinks on our behalf and this worked well and was a reasonable option. The 6 cabins included 2 master cabins and 4 en-suites - at times they were too hot for sleeping so some of our group slept under the stars. We all agreed that 7 days was not quite long enough! We plan to do a similar trip again in the future and would use Boating Turkey to assist without hesitation. Thank you to all that ensured we had a wonderful experience cruising
I was recently on board the Grand Mare with Michelle Neumann and my friends. We had an amazing adventure and I personally loved being on board every minute. The crew were friendly and respectful in every way. Having said that I would jump at the chance to get back on board and go sailing again. Hope this is of some help.
we just arrived home after a visit to Istanbul. We had a great trip on the gulet great boat, great crew, and fine food. Thanks for all your help in setting everything up and responding to all our queries. We'll do it again one of these days.
Once again thank you so much for your amazing service. From the first email I send enquiring about the trip up until the day you said goodbye to us when we disembarked the gullet, you have been professional and helpful. The best thing was your excellent communication, every email was answered promptly. I is scary booking a holiday from a different country and all you can do is hope and pray that it will all worked out and that your are not being swindled. I can recommend Boating Turkey to anyone. The experience was amazing and we cannot wait for a next time.
