Gulet Cruise & Yacht Charter Customer Reviews and Testimonials

We really enjoyed our week on gulet. Murat and his crew were exceptionally attentive and hospitable and made our cruise a very relaxing experience. This was our first time on a gulet with children and our worries about safety and boredom were completely unfounded. The children were always occupied and happy, either swimming in the bays, playing on canoes, being towed on the banana or rings, playing games in the shade and best of all trying food that we could never tempt them with at home!

Ceo 3 - T.V. / 21.11.2013

My printer is broken so I can't do the survey. But I can happily inform you that tat the highlight of the cruise was the very friendly and helpful staff and the beautiful freshly prepared food. Superb! Everybody who joined us has commented and we would certainly consider coming back!!
On that note...please price a private charter starting around 6th May 2013 for aound 6 or 7 days. We will require 12 berths and a vessel standard at least that of Serhatbey. Can you also let me have the details of the first mate from our cruise as I have said I will look him up on face book from time to time

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 have had on Oguzbey a wonderful holiday. All the staff, from the captain to the crew, have been very nice. Our children have enjoyed their holiday a lot. We have relaxed and see beautiful places. I also know that you have been very kind with us and organize everything in a perfect way. You have also made for us a very good offer, for which I thank you again.

We had a fantastic week cruising the Aegean on the S.Dogu. Captain Ramuzun and his crew of six were attentive yet unobtrusive, the food was superb and the gulet is spacious and luxurious. I would recommend this charter to anyone seeking a relaxing and fun-filled holiday.

We will be grateful to you for this great vacation for a lifetime! We are still talking with friends about the great time that we have experienced thanks to you.
Your hospitality and the cuisine you combined with the Turkish and European super were amazing. Nowhere have we tasted the same taste of the fish on the grill. We would also like to thank you for the perfect service on the ship. Just fabulous! A walk behind the islands in the long beaches was priceless. I recommend as I said all a yacht trip plan. We thank you again and hope to see you again soon.

Feraye - Mrs.Gonzalez / 06.05.2014

We had a wonderful time on Berrak Su, the crew was very nice especially Hatish who was really lovely and prevented our every need. The boat was very confortable and the big enough for the 9 of us to have privacy whenever we needed.
The only down side might be the fact that we didn't have very good spots to anchor in and the fact the boat moved quite alot when attached (maybe because it was always anchored with only one anchor and only one rope? can't tell as I a don't sail!) But other than that, the Air Conditionning was on usually until 5:00 am which was not just quite enough as it was really hot but sufficient to sleep well part of the night.
I can't tell about any other downsides, we really had a very good time and the boat is very well cared for.
Thanks to the crew and to the Agency for beeing attentive to our needs.

Hi Erkan
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.

Blue Capricorn - Pippa Schoeman / 12.07.2016

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.

Cok selamlar,

Celik Es D - Rasih Yanardag / 30.06.2016

How can I thank you?! The "Blue Cruise" gulet and Captain Ali were better than I imagined. EVERYONE had a magnificent time. Many said it was a trip of a life time. A life changer. They were so happy to be introduced to Turkey both in Istanbul and along the southern coast by boat. Many want to go back to get to know Turkey better. All think the Turkish people are extremely friendly and are especially grateful to you. The gulet "Blue Cruise" was in pristine condition. My friend Charles Perini who does a lot of very fine rebuilding of houses and owned a wooden boat, said that he had never seen such a good varnish job. Every thing looked brand new from the covering on the cushions to the deck floor to the ropes. The crew was constantly cleaning the gulet. And the two younger men, Jacob and Ukfar (spelling) never let an empty glass or cup of coffee sit for more than a minute. They were always smiling, especially Jacob. Hussein was chopping vegetable, etc., from morning till night and produced a variety of wonderful dishes. The second week menu was even somewhat different from the first week. Fish three times a week. We cannot eat the tomatoes available here in the US after all those Turkish fresh tomatoes. And then of course there is Captain Ali!!!! I loved him. I had asked you to find not only a good gulet but a captain who knew the coast. Early on I told Ali that we really would like to be anchored for lunch and the night is places where there were less people and gulets. He found the most amazing little coves. We were able to go swimming and snorkeling several times a day in coves to ourselves. Also, he got us to places of interest before the crowds, such as Cleopatra Island. Smart man. And he has a sense of humor. And he was really sweet with Elsa, my four year old grand daughter. As you know, Elsa and Ira had a birthday which we wanted to celebrate on Sunday the 23rd. The crew decorated a cake and big platter and Ali gave Elsa a present.... a pretty little bracelet. Magical.

Blue Cruise - Rindy Northrop / 29.07.2013

We absolutely loved our experience on our five day cruise in May 2013. there were only four of us (2 couples) and arranging to have the boat to ourselves was just perfect. And of course it was very spacious and comfortable with our small group. Perrinita would also work well with more folks /children or adults in the smaller cabins. Do check floor level changes in one large cabin if you get up during the night.
Food and service were terrific and as we had some very specific dietary needs, we had communicated with the rental agent and were completely satisfied with their choices. As we were doing a shorter cruise we did not venture to the Greek Islands. We worked with the Captain, who was very helpful, to make sure we stayed in quiet places for dinner and the evenings and to stop at beautiful places each day where we could hike (usually for several hours).
We jumped in the water which was beautiful and were met by a gorgeous lunch. We also arranged to be under sail for an hour or two every afternoon even though we weren't going anywhere - we just love the feeling sailing. Except for sleeping, we spent all our time outdoors, lounging on the comfy decks in shade or sun. All fur of us thought this was the highlight of our trip --deeply relaxing with a balance or rest and peacefulness with the activities of swimming and hiking. Thank you crew - you are wonderful!

Dear Madam/Sir,
Guletyacht.net has handled our questions in a professional and most satisfactory way.
We are most pleased with the way we have been met, from the first emails to the great holiday.
You have been most informative and helpful and made us certain about having chosen a secure and serious company.
We will not hesitate to use and recommend Ariva Yachting again.
After many years of dreaming about a holiday on a Blue Voyage Cruise it is a pleasure to say that the cruise become a very memorable and great holiday for the 4 families, 15 persons, we were onboard, all together.
The 26,5m Gulet fulfilled all our expectations as we left Marmaris with quality all around us. The boat was lovely with teakwood and mahogany all around and the crew kept the ship clean and tidy.
We were a bit concerned regarding the hot Turkish nights, while sleeping in a warm cabin… Would the aircondition that normally is shot off at midnight be enough?
Many of us found it too warm, but we enjoyed sleeping outside on the mattresses on the deck, under the canvas. That was very pleasant, without any insects and with perfect temperature.
If we wanted to have aircondition during the night, that would be possible if we paid extra and the captain found a place where we could let the engine work all night. We preferred to enjoy the silent night onboard and had a perfectly good sleep outside.
A Blue Voyage Crruise onboard a Gulet in a great Turkish archipelago/coastline was simply magnificant and we highly recommend it. Many more should choose this kind of holiday.
We experiences wonderful clear water in perfect temperature. No manets or other fish/animals to worry about in the water. The whole family enjoyed swimming and playing in the sea.
If we wanted, and we had enough wind, the crew sat sail and we enjoyed that as well.
We had good communication with the captain and crew and decided together where to move the boat to every day. We often moved after breakfast and a nice swim, and then again after lunch. We enjoyed suntanning, bathing and games in the water.
Nobody got seasick, the boat was steady and there were not much wind. We had perfect lengths on our journeys between new places to stay.
Regarding the costs, we found the very acceptable, and we think many should feel tempted to try this out.
We were also more than happy about the food served onboard. It had great variety and looked and tasted very delicious. We were very impressed about the chef. Because of the children in the families we asked for chicken to be served with at all evening meals, and they did.
We had the opportunity to buy our own beverages and we chose to do so.
That helped us to keep the costs down and the crew gave us the same service by keeping and serving the drinks to us, cold and nice, without any extra costs, and with a big smile.
The crew was very discrete, friendly, nice and very service minded. They spoke some English and we managed fine to understand eachother. They were discrete but always there for us when we needed them.
On the negative side we have tree comments:
1. The smell from the aircondition was not nice. It should have been cleaned, so that the smell would not be there. The way is smelled was uncomfortable.
2. The other thing is that we would have liked to have fresh towels, during the week onboard.
3. The last thing is regarding the toiletcleaners. One morning we moved the boat in some quite windy sea. The toiletbrushes fell on the floor and everything that was in the container came out on the floor, where we were supposed to stay barefoot… We would advice you to attach these to the walls…
Other then that we found everything wonderful.
We went ashore in Marmaris with great holiday memories and continued our vacation at an all-inclusive hotel. The perfect combination.! :)
We are all looking forward to a holiday like this in a near future!
Thank you so much

Beautiful holiday that I have already recommended it to other friends for the next year. The captain took us to one of the most beautiful coasts of the Mediterranean Sea which had always calm and quiet coves. The size of the boat has allowed everyone to live comfortably despite the presence of so many young people and children. The entire crew was kindly and willingly. Well-maintained boat but it needs a refit that, it was told me, will take place during the next winter. Overall, a nice experience to live with the whole family

We (2 families) of 10 adults and 3 babies under 2 years had a very, very nice, relaxing week on the yacht Dreamland. Our security concerns were unnecessary, because the railing was secured with a net and in proportion to other gulets our one was with a large foredeck gave the children enough run. At least 5 sitting and sleeping areas provided enough retreat. The crew - especially Ali ! - Is very friendly and helpful. The captain was very friendly to our needs regarding the route and the berths . The food was delicious without restriction. I even got a great Happy Birthday cake as a gift from the crew .
The Agency guletyacht - Erkan Ari - was very friendly and helpful. It was just strange that you stated sports equipment like surfboards as available on the Internet, although the yacht has only canoes on board and as we found later, in your own website this also indicates as correct. If we had known that, we would like to have ordered a surfboard separately. The Agency should perhaps specify the fringe benefits of gulets not all same but check individually for each gulet.

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.

We LOVED the captain, and the first mate and cook were also excellent. Food was excellent and plentiful and crew was very very accomodating to our needs and preferences. The wifi was not ideal, and we cannot figure out how we could have used as much as we did. A few rough spots around the itinerary (a long stop in a hot port). We would plan ahead better next time. We did not come even close to the 4 hour daily motoring, we averaged less than 2 hrs a day. Agency dissuaded us from covering more ground and seeing more sites. We would definitely hire Casa dell Arte and its crew for a future trip and would recommend the agency and boat to our friends.

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.

Sebahat Sultan - Daniela Di Luca & Massimo Roccia / 03.09.2013

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

We rented Ege Gunesi for 10 persons and with the suggestion of Captain we sailed into the Gulf of Gokova. The gulet has a capacity for 12 persons but it would be a bit 'tight, but it's great for 10!

Atalante - Gilbert Achermann / 08.08.2014

Wonderful and relaxing stay. Wonderfully organized by the Agency. Food was very good, designed for light summer cuisine. Lots of vegetables and fruit, everything was always delicious and fresh. Typical Turkish kebab dishes but for example lamb, veal or beef dishes one looks in vain in the luxury menu. Two lamb chops per week and (delicious) grilled fish were indeed very tasty, but were in the light of what Turkish cuisine actually can offer a little lean. For this price per person per day we would have expected a little more.

Dear Sirribir,
I would like to tell you that the cruise was very beautiful, professional crew and excellent food.
The best thing was to stay in port in Bodrum last night. If we had no parking we will not be off the gulet and we could not visit the city.
Regarding sun bed was comfortable but Annalia would have preferred the classic one with no stairs.
We’ll remember for next time.
My friends would like to rent a gullet for next summer but are interested in Croazia. Do you have anything in that area?
Thanks of everything
Best regards
Ivana

The boat cruise on the Ceo 3 surpassed our expectations, our crew was good humoured and attentive, the food was thoughtfully prepared and delicious, and the scenery was pristine and beautiful. Our agent (Erkan Ari) was very helpful, he answered all our emails promptly and was always available, he went out of his way to make the trip unforgettable for all of us. I recommend this agency and the Ceo 3 without hesitation, it was truly an unforgettable experience, one we hope to repeat in years to come.

It was all perfect. Great crew, delicious food. The only suggestion would be to note that it would be better not to cut the whole bread, but kept in plastic bags and only to be cut if it is necessary – then it would not be so dehydrated on the second day! But this is really just a piece of advice - it was always still enjoyable!

Deck was cleaned every day, the cabins (bathroom, toilet, etc.) unfortunately never. Otherwise, we had a very nice time on the gulet. The crew was great! Very outgoing, friendly and warm. Thanks to them we had such a nice time.

Except for the sanitary facilities (drain !!), the very economical use of the air conditioning and the broken TV (football World Cup), the trip was wonderful. The deck of the CEO III is ideal for a trip in good weather. The supervising crew was perfect.

Ceo 3 - Phillip Leyen / 30.06.2014

The Crew were absolutely devoted to giving service. Mooring was effortless. Service of meals and drinks was subtle and almost unnoticeable. It is interesting to watch the command the Captain has over the crew (something that would not happen in Australia.) The chef provided the best food we have had, and continuously. The crew were invisible unless needed. 30 years of international travel and this is the best!!

We are already planning a new trip.
We had chartered the CANER IV from July 30 until August 6, 2011, embarking and disembarking in Rhodes. We sailed to small Greek islands, some of them uninhabited. The CANER IV is a wonderful and very elegant ship; she offers a lot of deck space, which we enjoyed very much. You have an excellent trained crew, doing everything to make our wishes become true. Although, most of the itinerary was somewhat unusual and unknown to Captain Saadettin, he immediately complied with all our ideas, making our trip a very unique one. Congratulations to the Chef Sener for his finest and creative Turkish cuisine. Soner pampered us from morning to evening and we always had the impression being guests in the best sense of the word. Last, but not least, the other three crew members Gürhan, Bilow (?) and Mustafa also did everything to make our stay on board a most enjoyable one. Thank you very much for a wonderful experience; we are already planning a new trip. Kind regards H.Klein

Caner 4 - Heiko K. / 24.08.2011

The information about special requests on our part was not optimal, as the crew unfortunately several times a week had to go shopping, because too little was chartered. Also information about existing nespresso machine would have been pleasing.
Apart from that, we were really spoiled in every way by a particularly nice crew.

We have had a marvellous holiday.
Now we are back in Norway after some days in Istanbul. To combine a week at a Gulet Yacht with some days in Istanbul was a perfect match.

We have had a marvellous holiday. Everything was perfect. The boat Bedia Sultan was a beautiful boat. Captain and his crew are professionals with excellent service. They are kind, humouristic and made everyone feel really comfortable. And the food was delicious.
The Hammam in Gocek harbour was an exotic experience. They were also professionals.

The representatives from you company have been giving us excellent service. From the planning of this holiday started in February until we left Turkey. This holiday has been as a dream coming true for me. I will come back. I promise. It have been a pleasure to make business with you. You made my birthday-tour perfect. And a special thank for lending us your guitar.

Erik, one of my guest are making a presentation of the pictures we have taken at the cruise. We will send some of them when he has finished the presentation.

Bedia Sultan - A.Kristin / 29.07.2016

We really enjoyed our week on gulet. Murat and his crew were exceptionally attentive and hospitable and made our cruise a very relaxing experience. This was our first time on a gulet with children and our worries about safety and boredom were completely unfounded. The children were always occupied and happy, either swimming in the bays, playing on canoes, being towed on the banana or rings, playing games in the shade and best of all trying food that we could never tempt them with at home!
