I completely agree with what Hugh has already stated below, the holiday was incredible.
The crew on the boat made it extra special, and they are to be looked after indeed. The food, places we stopped, interaction with us was very professional, natural and one of the highlights of the trip for me.
Ante’s attention to detail and calm approach really made us all feel very comfortable and at ease. The food was superb and all in all something I would definitely do again.
The holiday gets 12 out of 10 for me!
If you have any queries, please pop me a note.
Best regards, David

Thanks for following up on the trip. I have included my partners in the reply should they want to add to my comments.
We absolutely loved it!!!!!!
We go away annually as group and have done a variety of holiday types e.g. island, game safaris, Alpine Skiing, etc and we have rated this holiday as our best thus far.
We found the service from the Captain and his crew to be perfect and we appreciated the personal touch i.e. he is the owner of the boat and his wife was helping him. To some people this may not be what they want, but for us it made the trip just that much more enjoyable getting to the know them as people and not just service providers. Ante planned each trip carefully so that we may arrive and depart at the right time to ensure that we either get the best docking/mooring spot or get to experience an amazing sunrise/sunset. Small details like this made a big difference and we noticed it. Ante was also very accommodating to our requests and offered valuable insight to help us choose where we would like to go and what we would like to do.
The boat is well maintained and has plenty of space. There were 11 people on board (incl. crew) and we never felt crowded, The rooms and amenities e.g. aircon, were great and we were all very comfortable for the duration of the trip.
We only had one issue to sort out and that was due to the captain not being aware that we had opted for the all inclusive domestic drinks package for some of the guests. We realised this on the 2nd day and sorted this out quickly. Our challenge however, was having to settle the associated payment in cash whereas paying upfront via EFT would have been better as it was a large sum of money that we needed to draw from the ATM.

Dear Mr. Ari,
Everyday life gets a grip on you again, but fortunately the memories of our wonderful holiday on the Gulet are so present.
We wanted to thank you once again for bringing us this beautiful ship.
The week was uniquely beautiful, the crew not only read every wish from our lips, they also gave us culinary excellence, they were also extremely happy, polite, open, without being intrusive - a perfect team.
We would be glad, if you could pass that on to the crew again.
A big thank you again to your wife, the short stay in your hotel was perfect, it was very relaxed, wonderful and very delicious.
Dear Mr. Ari, could you ask your wife where the pretty big towels that are in the hotel by the pool are spent? Mrs. Grützediek especially liked them and she is soon celebrating her birthday ..
Greetings from all of us, including your wife,
Constance seal and family

I'm writing to thank you for all your kindness and the great care you and your team took of our family during our recent trip to Turkey. Please relay our most sincere gratitude to the crew as they made our trip a very comfortable and enjoyable experience.
Truth is we couldn't have been more pleased with all the arrangements and the service we received from each and every one of you.
I am hoping we can do more business together so please send me any literature you might have and I will send you some questions so that we try to organize some trips in the near future.

The communal space round the dining table and the relaxing area at the back of the boat really worked well for us.
The chef and the food he prepared every day was outstanding.
We had some difficulty communicating with the captain as he couldn’t speak much English. He was also reluctant to take us to any Greek islands which was disappointing as it is what we had originally requested. He eventually agreed to dock on 2 Greek islands. His reluctance may have been because the 3rd crew member did not have a passport so he was unable to conform to the legal port requirements.
Some comments for improvements would be to upgrade the rubber duck (it was taking on water and the motor was not functioning well) and the canoe (it was also taking on water so we could not use it), and we would have preferred to have extra flippers and goggles.
Overall it was a fabulous holiday and we would consider doing it again!

it's nice to hear from you!
I only have good comments to give, everything was wonderful!
We spent a very good too short cruise with Esser, his wife and son.
We had a wonderful time. They always made us feel very comfortable. Esser always explain the plan of the day showing me on the map what we were going to visit. He chose the best spots according to the strong wind during part of the trip.
His wife is very nice as well and an excellent cook. She always made fresh food in abundant quantity. We really enjoyed the food and they made us discover that in Turkey you have tea time so around 5pm we had tea with cake and cookies.
I have to say that we saw beautiful places and bays. The gullet was really pretty and well kept. Each of us had his own room with bathroom and we absolutely loved the front area with the relaxing area with comfortable cushions.
The transportation was very well organized, I didn't have to think about anything.
I hope we'll be able in the future to arrange an other cruise may be for a week this time.
We absolutely loved it.
I want to thank you Erkan to put all this together for us and for always be available and very quick in your response.
Talk to you soon.
