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.
I thank all the attention received to complete my week Cruising from Bodrum to Gocek. As for the boat: everything worked according to expectations, including all onboard services, all navigation equipment functioned as expected. People in the base has behaved excellent. The delivery of the vessel, the performance summary, the instructions were very clear and neat, support during the crossing, in reference to a single functional drinking water problem was solved with clear indications received by e-mail. The reception in Gocek was excellent, and we also completed a week Cruising with much satisfaction. I only have words of praise for the work done, and no doubt I will continue working with you on future plans in turkey.
My best wishes

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
We loved your gulet trip and would recommend everything about it. Your communication was excellent throughout, which is so important when you're organising something from a different country. The boat was luxurious. It was great to have so much space on it. The crew were stars! They were totally competent (as we occasionally saw in contrast to another boat), and wonderfully friendly and helpful. Captain Kansu always explained the routes for the day, with options if we wanted, and chose lovely bays for anchorage. The crew were always happy to take us ashore in the inflatable, and haul kayaks in and out whenever we liked. It was a great holiday!
