What our clients say!

We where extremely happy with our week sailing from Gocek in June. And I would like to thank you for all your help with the booking and organizing of our charter. Everything was perfect, all trough the pick-up at the airport in the middle of the night, the stay at EFE-hotel (good standard and friendly staff) and the handling at the marina by the your staff. The boat was in very good shape, even with a Norwegian flag flying. Nice touch! We had a wonderful week sailing our only minor problem was that the outboard on the dinghy didn’t work.

We would very much like to come back to you for a new week of sailing next year.

We had a wonderful week of sailing in Turkey and the boat and crew far exceeded our expectations. The planning process through Boating Turkey was very smooth and everything turned out to be exactly as promised. The chef on board cooked three fantastic meals a day and everyone from 12 to 55 years of age had a great vacation. The captain was very knowledgeable about the waters around Bodrum and we will definitively consider coming back for more

Hi Necmi,

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.
