What our clients say!

Me and my family were going to take a Windstar cruise in early July this year. One of the ports of call was Bodrum. Reading about the place and its tourist attractions, we decided to rent a gullet for the day. I am sure now that our decision couldn't be better. It was a most relaxing trip, in a typical boat, huge and comfortable, swimming in clear waters with no hurry at all. The crew members were very kind and helpful, and they cook wonderful meals. Everything was really well organized. Since I had arranged the gullet rental through an Internet site, having paid for their services in advance, I knew I was taking my chances. Specially because we would just have some hours in Bodrum, and it would be hard to rearrange the rental on the spot. I had no need to worry, the boat was waiting for us, corresponding in every detail to what they proposed us in their e-mail. We will certainly use Boating Turkey services again if we are fortunate enough to visit this wonderful Turkish beach once more in the future.

I discovered Boating Turkey in the internet some months ago, since I was planning to go for a blue cruise in Turkey with a group of friends, this summer.Well, it proved to be a good choice. Quick information, efficient organization. And the gulet Doruk Reis was superb! We'll never forget the marvelous week we spend on board, in July.

Necmi, I can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you spent making our sailing holiday unforgettable. I had a million questions about sailing in Turkey and sent you numerous emails. You always responding back to each and every email right away and provided clear instructions, information and details. In addition, I spent some time researching other brokers and charter companies operating in Turkey and your rates were by far the most competitive. Our trip turned out perfect in every way. Our airport transfers, pre & post hotel recommendations were brilliant! The sailboat was beautiful and well equipped and we appreciated your sailing route recommendations. Sailing in Turkey is so easy – compared to the San Francisco Bay were we are from. If was such a pleasant and relaxing experience. Fantastic seaside restaurants you can eat at every night – only accessible by boat. All the markets catering to the sailing community made shopping for supplies a piece of cake – they all deliver right to the boat! Best of all was the natural beauty of the Turkish cost. This is unlike any place in the world. Our vacation exceeded all our expectations and we already decided we will be back next summer. We couldn’t have done this without you and your help. Thanks again for being part of this amazing experience – we will be in touch when we start to book our 2014 vacation!

All the best,
