On the first day, our gulet will be anchored at Bodrum harbour for dinner and overnight stay (The private groups have the chance to leave Bodrum harbour for overnight on a close bay to Bodrum). Bodrum has a history that goes back to the 12 th century B.C. The city which was called 'Halicarnassus' was the birthplace of Herodotus; the 'Father of History' who lived in the 5th century B.C. The 'Mausoleum' of King Mausolus (350 B.C.) which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World is in this city. The only structure that survived from the Classical Era is the Amphitheatre. It is one of the oldest theatres in Anatolia with a capacity of 13.000 guests, and is still hosting many shows and concerts for the art-lovers in Bodrum. Another place that you should visit first at your arrival in Bodrum is the landmark of the city 'Castle of Saint Peter'. It is one of the best preserved piece of work whose history goes back to the Middle Ages. 'Myndos Gate' through which Alexander the Great entered Halicarnassus is another place that you should not miss.

Thanks Necmi for a wonderful vacation in Greek and Turkish waters! Everything about our vacation was perfect and I can truly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone who wants a great gulet sailing vacation.
The crew on board was amazing, extremely professional and friendly. We really felt well taken care of throughout our vacation. Our biggest surprise was the quality of the food on board, it was superb, the chef did a wonderful job preparing delicious meals for us every day. I cannot think of anything negative to say about Necmi Artar / Boating Turkey, we will without a doubt use Boating Turkey service again for future gulet sailing vacations. Hopefully with Yacup as our captain!

We spent a lot of time going through travel brochures and surfing the
internet in researching our Turkish boating holiday.

After lots of false starts with other boating brokers who did not respond
speedily or who only answered one or two of our questions, we found the
Boating Turkey website and never looked back. The site was very clearly
laid out with an extensive list of available boats along with quality
photos. Our questions around boats and suggested itineraries were responded
to quickly and effectively, and we always felt that we were getting
considered opinions and advice rather than rushed and incomplete responses.

The result: The boat and her crew were outstanding - a perfect match to our
requirements and exactly as promised by the staff who helped us at Boating
Turkey. Their staff could not have been more courteous and helpful, both in
the booking process, and helping with some extra supplies on the day of
departure and getting our family to the boat quickly and efficiently whilst
making sure everything was in order with the captain and boat before they
waved us off.

We recommend their services with confidence and pass on our thanks for
helping with a great holiday experience.
