From start to finish Boating Turkey was very professional and thorough, always quick to respond which is key when you are communicating from 2 different time zones. From the moment all 12 of us stepped onto the boat our expectations were exceeded above and beyond our wildest dreams. The sea was beautiful, the chef was phenomenal and the boat was fantastic. Thank you!
Thank you very much for arranging our Turkish Gulet holiday in July, 2009. This was our second boating holiday with Boating Turkey, and we absolutely loved it! We chartered the Miriam Sophie, a 28 metre luxury gulet with two other families, and cruised from Marmaris, through Turkey, to Symi and Rhodes. Our captain and his family, who were the crew, were very amenable, and did everything they could to make our trip fantastic. The food was superb, you really wonder how they can whip up such great dishes on a boat! The coves and islands we visited were all gorgeous, and the highlight I think was our 3 nights in Symi, the harbour was just gorgeous, with Italian colonial architecture and brilliant cafes, then the following 2 nights were spent in little coves with the most magnificent blue water to swim in. The captain also took us to his home port in Turkey, Green Village, which was delightful.
The itinerary was very flexible, and crew happy to accommodate our choices. The boat was immaculately maintained, the cabins were large and roomy, the bathrooms were spacious and had a proper shower and toilet. There was loads of deck space both up front with sunbeds for all, and at the rear, which was enormous. We loved to sleep on deck, falling asleep with the stars at night. The captain was very skilled, we were amazed how he could manoevre such a large boat into tight spaces.
All in all, we had a brilliant experience. The booking and organization process was extremely simple, easy and smooth, and Necmi was very patient with us as we changed plans several times during the booking and departure period. The drinks etc were all pre-ordered via the net.
If you want a truly relaxing holiday, the sun and breeze in your face and not a care in the world, you can't beat this. No TV (they did actually have TV but we didn't tell the kids that) no phones, no worries.....
We just returned from our week long charter aboard Venla, a 45' Jenneau Sun Odyssey out of Gocek, and we had the best trip! The boat was in great shape, very well maintained, and super comfortable. Nemci and the all of the staff was really helpful and I would recommend them highly. Gocek, Fethiye and all of the islands and bays in the area were all beautiful and well worth visiting!
Thanks for a very special trip!

Dear Necmi, Dear Necmi
From the moment we made our first tentative enquiry until we arrived back at the airport at the end of our vacation we could not have wished to have received a better level of service than that provided by Boating Turkey. The booking and pre-trip procedures were made very straightforward for us, leading us to arrive at Dalaman airport with great confidence. Our gulet, Dea Delmare was simply stunning and we had a crew that were attentive whenever we needed anything and invisible when we were enjoying our charter. The food provided was unbelievably good, none of us could believe the quantity and variety of dishes that kept appearing from such a small place. The weather was fantastic and, set against such a beautiful backdrop, combined to create a memorable holiday. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with our children and their partners and the crew threw a surprise party for us which, amazingly, included tendering in to our private bay a DJ with all of his equipment. If anybody is looking for that really special vacation, look no further than a call to Necmi at Boating Turkey.
I would certainly use Boating Turkey again and have already recommended you to a number of people.
Many thanks once again
