Axel Collett Dreamland 9 / 10
Dear Erkan, I just wanted to thank you and the crew at Dreamland for a very memorable cruise in the beautiful Turkish waters. We are all very satisfied and have recommended a Gulet Cruise and Ariva Yachting to all our friends and connections.
Although we read that all of you are facing challenges these days, we hope that there will be more normal times in the near future, and that we will see you all soon again.
All the best wishes for a continuous good summer and future from the Colletti Group

What a great time we had on the Gulet!
Sirribir, We finally make it back home. I want to let you know what a great time we had on the Gulet! The boat and especially the crew were first class. Please tell them so. We cannot say enough about the great food!!!! We all loved our extended stay in Turkey. Istanbul was spectacular. You live in a great country. We hope to do a similar trip in the future and would certainly contact you as well as recommend you to our friends. You did a great job for us. Thank you, Rick

We are safely back in South Africa - unlike our luggage unfortunately which still appears to be holidaying in Europe!
I just wanted to pass on my families thanks for organising such a wonderful trip for us. Everything about it was perfect. The boat is majestic and we fell in love. The crew looked after us so well, Oscar seemed to be forever taking our girls out on the dinghy or banana boat or making them milkshakes. They were taken fishing with Ersin the Captain.. I was humbled by their desire to ensure our trip was just as we wanted it. They were knowledgeable, gracious, discreet but managing to appear at just the right time for drinks, trips or keeping my two girls entertained. The food was amazing and our compliments go to Ali for getting us to try some new and delicious food - we over ate and felt bad when we couldn’t finish all his lovely food.
You also went above and beyond, making sure our collection and transfer from the airport to the boat was efficient and comfortable. What a lovely surprise to receive flowers. Obviously with the terrible events the day before we were due to come to Istanbul meaning our travel plans were cancelled, you helped ensure we could still take our trip by arranging a new pickup point in Greece instead of Gocek. Thank you for your patience and persistence in ensuring we still managed to get on our holiday.
It really was the best holiday we have spent as a family and we have already agreed we want to go sailing again next year. We will be in touch!
Many thanks and i hope Turkey continues to receive the praise and visitors it deserves.

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.
