Merhaba Erkan, I am now back in Germany and finally find the time to send you an email.
I just wanted to say - also on behalf of my friends - that our Gulet tour was perfect. We had a great time and loved the boat, the tour and especially the crew. Mert, Ekrem, Ramazan and Baki were a great team and they were great hosts! The food, as I expected and hoped, was great. So, really we have nothing to complain (okay, we ran out of beer and red wine, but the crew filled it up quickly)
My friends, most of them have been in Turkey for the first time in their life, were so positivly surprised by the nature, the food, the weather, the coast/water and of course the friendlyness and hospitality of the Turkish people. Some of them considered to charter a Gulet with their families in the future. So we hope that things in Turkey "will get back to normal" quickly and the people can live peacefully together. We would love to come back one day.
Attached two pictures with the request to forward it to Mert, Ekrem, Ramazan and Baki. They really did a great job and without the crew, our trip would not have been as great as it was.

The captain and crew were paradigms of exceptional service. The chef created fantastically savory meals, each a unique and special event. We took several hikes on different islands, and a member of the crew showed us interesting flora and beautiful sights. They were very professional and polite, doing so much to keep us all very well cared for, and doing so in such a way that we seemed alone - until we needed something. Then, they were there immediately, often even before we asked for something.
They brought us to the most private shorelines, coaxing nearby dolphins to follow and play with the boat for a while. They kept the boat cleaned and comfy, so that we could sit anywhere while watching the light dance on the indigo waters. Fantastic captain, crew, scenery and time! I couldn’t recommend a voyage with this team more highly.

I would recommed it to anyone who is thinking about going on a gulet cruise.
This holiday was the best so far. The Gulet was amazing, I couldn't believe the size of this beautiful boat. It was clean, rooms well equipt and each room had a great en-suite, it was a shame we all didn't use the rooms to sleep in as we all slept on deck it was like being holiday with the waltons!! and the crew were really friendly we all felt like one big family.The Gulet had great facilites, a bannana boat, canoe, snorklling equipment, hamocks, speed boat for water skiing. Everyday it was even better than the last. We made the evening entertainment ourselves by dancing the night away to our CD's, limbo dancing and generally having a laugh with my new found friends. I will never forget this holiday and if you ever get the chance I would recommed it to anyone who is thinking about going on a gulet cruise.

We as a group of 22 persons chartered Oguzbey for a week cruise from Bodrum to Marmaris with stops on the Greek Islands Symi & Rhodes. The whole group was very happy and ebnjoyed the excellent quality of life on board of Oguz Bey. Comfort, Food & Beverage were excellent. The crew very friendly and helpful.
A special compliment goes to Mr. Erkan Ari - sales manager at guletyacht - for all his fabulous assistance during months in preparing our cruise in all aspects.
A special was our decision to book an all inclusive pension. If beverages (soft drinks and alcoholics) would not have been included we would have had a terrible fuss in accounting at the end of the cruise. I can only recommend guletyacht - they did a good job.

Dear Ali, Donal O’Dwyer here from Sydney. We had the true pleasure of chartering your beautiful gullet from Bodrum to Gocek for a week on the last week in September.
It was a family get together and it was for us all the trip of a lifetime.
Prior to arriving I have to say that the folks I worked through to book the gulet were very good and professional.
Then to start the trip, the time of year was perfect – beautiful temperature and, as it was nearing the end of the season, it was relatively quiet.
Secondly, the region we travelled in was truly magnificient – with the turquoise waters, the fabulous coastal scenery including so many secluded bays it was sheer perfection.
And now to the gullet and crew.- Esma Sultan is magnificient – it is spacious and beautifully built and laid out. Although we were a large family group it was just as easy to escape and be on your own or mix with the other family members as you wished – there were so many places on the boat to accommodate us. It was an absolute joy.
Finally, you had a magnificent crew – all of them. The Captain (Usay) was so great – he wanted to do all he could to ensure we had the holiday we wished for – he discussed the itinerary frequently and always was of the view that it was what we wanted that mattered. We had a small medical emergency – which thankfully proved to be a false alarm – but the Usay made sure he was with us at all times – waited at the medical centre with us until everything was solved and was invaluable with his knowledge and language at the hospital.
The chef was outstanding sh is a truly lovely person – again great variety and excellent quality of food. Everyone raved about the food!
The [erson that mainly took care of our day to day needs such as serving drinks etc was Tah Tah - he is such a good and nice young man - a great sense of fun - he was magnificent.
The other staff were always attentive and excellent – they were always there when needed but not intrusive at other times.
Ali, we had the holiday of a lifetime – enormously due to being on your beautiful gullet with an exceptional crew and great human beings.
Best Regards and I look forward to seeing you in Melbourne, Thank You, Donal O’Dwyer
PS - Ali please feel free to share any of the above with whoever you may wish to - I am also happy to speak to anyone who may wish to hear at first hand what the experience was like

Thank you so much for this unforgettable experience. A wonderful trip with friendly and obliging staff. We had such a wonderful time and were made to feel like family by Sulhi and the boys. Food was excellent and the chef and staff did a wonderful job of pampering us. Plenty of room on the boat.
We will be recommending your services to our friends and are already talking about coming back for a longer cruise. Could you please let me know what category and name you can give me so I can give you a glowing recommendation on Trip Advisor. Thanks again Claude and Kerry Allouche.

The boat itself was fantastic...
The food was delicious, the crew was capable and charming, the boat itself was fantastic. We enjoyed almost all the stops on our itinerary, balancing history with culture with local flair. The crew were fabulous in adjusting to our desire for a mix of relaxation, sport and excitement. Appreciated the linen changes and crew uniform changes and local cuisine and music. We will come again with friends and family.
