What our clients say!
Thanks again for all the help arranging our boat holiday! We had a blast! Nice boat, fantastic food, lovely crew with excellent service on board. When you include what you get for free: the fantastic sea and nature surrounding Bodrum... Our best holiday experience ever! I'm quite sure we'll do this again next year and most certainly use Necmi and Boating Turkey. No one can do it better! Until next year... Love, Hege Strand Oslo, Norway hege.strand[at]smartcall.no
We really loved sailing in Turkey and everything was very professional. The boat was excellent and in fine conditions and the skipper was technically, as far as we can evaluate, very good. In the first day we change the itinerary that was initially (Marmaris Bodrum) agreed with no problem and we did a bigger course and went to marvellous places and paradisiacal bays. We were so lucky that we even saw two Dolphins and one sperm-whale!!
It has been great holidays, I did enjoy very much the top shape of the boat, the quality of the service and the beautiful scenery, nice weather and wind too.
Thank you for your service and I hope to be back soon sailing in Turkey.
Dear Necmi and Rusen,
Thank you again for your assistance in planning our Turkish gulet trip. I highly recommend Boating Turkey for anyone considering a gulet charter trip in Turkey. When I first began reaching out to brokers, I was connected to Eastern European agencies who could not answer very basic questions about the boats or the itineraries. When I found Boating Turkey, and began to work with Necmi, I was delighted to learn that the brokerage is based in Bodrum. They are intimately involved with the local gulet business, and were extremely helpful in planning our trip. Necmi was able to provide several gulet options for our group of 16. Once we decided on the Ametist A, Necmi and Rusen were always quick to respond and helpful in making changes and additions per our needs.
Upon our arrival in Bodrum, Rusen was on the boat to greet us. He stayed for a couple of hours to make sure that everything was ready prior to our departure. We made last minute changes to catering and water toys for the week, and Rusen was happy to help with the logistics. He seemed genuinely reluctant to leave until he was assured the crew was ready to leave and we had everything we needed.
As for the boat and crew, we could not have been happier. Captain Recep was well attuned to our wishes, and constantly found beautiful, secluded and protected coves for swimming, hiking ashore, and relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. We marveled at his ability to park a beamy 27 foot boat in a 25 foot wide space at the dock. Chef Süleyman earned a round of applause at every meal. It was unreal how he could produce such varied and plentiful meals from such a small space. Basar, Ismail, and Olgun were excellent deck hands who quickly learned our likes and thoughtfully attended to all of our needs. The week would not have been the same without such an outstanding crew.
Thank you again to Necmi and Rusen for helping us put together a truly wonderful vacation. We cant wait to get back!
