What our clients say!
We had a absolute ball! We are 9 middle age friends who hired a self catering Gulet, not quite knowing what to expect! We didn't want to eat on board every night, but wanted to go ashore to socialise! Wow - Zigi ( our gracious Captain ), Ersan ( 2nd mate and a superb waiter) and Josef ( an amazing Chef, whose food surpassed any eaten ashore!), made our time on board, better than anything we could have expected! Never belly laughed so much in years, we all returned back to work horizontal! Thank you so very, very, much!
Thanks, Necmi for your patience and help,
Michael and friends!
Having just returned from a week on Sun-World IX we have to say it was one of the best sailing trips we have ever had. The company Boating Turkey were wonderful to deal with from the very first email from Necmi. The 4 star boat was very comfortable, well maintained and the captain and crew were excellent and waited on us hand and foot. The weather was excellent, sun shining every day and we visited some lovely bays and most of us swam every day. The water was crystal clear in most bays and although a little on the chilly side some days as it is tends to be in the Mediterranean, it was great to warm up in the sun then jump in to cool off. The chef was excellent and most of the food was typical Turkish style, made with very fresh ingredients and very tasty. The crew made a big effort to please everyone which is quite a feat in a party of 19 and also adapted meals to meet the special dietary requirements of some of our group. Although the group was large the boat was even larger and there was a cabin with ensuite for every 2 or 3 people and of course there was huge amounts of deck space to sunbathe, read or just lounge around. Some nights were warm and some people slept on the many cushions and sun beds up on deck but others found it was cool enough to sleep in their cabins with or without the air-conditioning working which was only when the generator was on. Having sailed at various places around the world on both bareboat and crewed charters over the last 32 years, we feel well qualified to say that this was a wonderful experience and we would love to sail with Boating Turkey again.
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.
From the initial planning stage in November 2012, right through to our departure on September 7th, 2013 Necmi the manager of the tour from Boating Turkey was superb. He communicated very well and promptly by e mail, explained everything clearly and arranged the two gulets to work together exactly as I'd asked him to. Our mini flotilla sailed like clockwork, both sets of crews friendly, helpful and great fun too. The food was out of this world and all in all everyone on our tour comprising of six Australians , two Americans and seventeen British all loved the experience, many wanting me to organise it again as our tour covered the southern Dodecanese Islands which were a beautiful experience for all.
