Indeed we had a great week in Orhanye, and I guess what I appreciated most was your flexibility and reactivity during the booking period. Then I have to say I was a bit surprised not to see you at the marina and finding out that you were actually subcontracting to Yelkenli Yachhing. Also we had some discussions with them regarding the boat description which was not exactly as you had told us (eg. regarding the fans in the cabins). But in the end we were lucky that the weather was not so hot, so it all went fine. The team at Yelkenli Yatching also took a bit of time to explain us about the nice places around the bay, and their recommendation proved quite good.
All in all I'll be definitely checking again Boating Turkey for my next sailing holidays ! Feel free to quote me for any of this.

Our recent two week holiday with Captain Cevat, Hassan & Bulent onboard Yildizhanlar 11 with 3 other couples from Australia, I would describe as a wonderful life experience that was thoroughly enjoyable with lovely memories!
Where to start? The scenery from Bodrum to Gocek was incredible, the swimming in such clear tranqual waters amazing.
The food Bulent cooked was absolutely devine, always varied and obviously lots of preparation and thought put into each meal, we ate like kings and queens! The chips in the morning omelette, the fresh fish and chicken dishes were a real hit!
Captain Cevat was a delight, his knowledge of the areas we travelled, his expertise sailing and handling his gulet was obvious and reassuring, we felt very safe and looked after. We appreciated that Captain Cevat took the time to accompany us on some of our excursions, we obviously learnt more about the surroundings by having him with us to ask any questions and knowing where to go to get the best view.
But the real hidden treasure onboard Yildizhanlar 11 was Hassan, his gentle, obliging manner to our every whim was just amazing. Hassan made a point to remember what each of us liked to drink upon waking, he would have a lovely cup of turkish tea, coffee or apple tea ready for us. All throughout the day, Hassan made sure we were comfortable, well fed and watered (including the best knock your socks off gin and tonics!) he took care of all our domestic duties. Hassan did this in a very unobtrusive and professional manner, it was an absolute delight to of met him. (His smile is priceless!)
I could not fault our trip, it was just what we were looking for, lots of relaxing, reading, eating, relaxing, sleeping, eating, drinking, sleeping!
I hope other Australians take advantage of this wonderful adventure and have a wonderful trip on a gulet like us.
