“This was my most memorable holiday; a magical historical adventure brought to life by Peter with vivid descriptions, awesome knowledge and genuine enthusiasm for the lives of the Greeks and Romans. The gulet’s crew and guests were a delight as were the most beautiful turquoise bays where we moored and swam. The delicious and bountiful food deserves high praise.”

Diane Du Bois, Herefordshire, UK

“Cathie’s in-depth knowledge and storytelling ability really brought the sites to life for us. No question went unanswered!  Her jovial and easy going personality really brought together everyone on the boat. Thanks Cathie for an unforgettable week!”

Christian Vezeau and Talitha Nabbali, Ottawa, Canada

“Thank you for a truly sensational trip this past week.  - a perfect balance of relaxation, ancient exploration, beauty, incredible food and very congenial company. We look forward to our next… thanks again from us both for an extraordinary trip !”

Bernard Gustin & Belinda Shepard, USA

“There were lots of places on the boat where we could sit back and just enjoy the scenery or read a book or get together with the other passengers. The food was fabulous and wine was provided with dinner each night. Each day had a planned site visit for about three or four hours and there was plenty of time to swim and relax. lt was a fascinating trip for those who like to dig a little deeper than the generic guidebook, as the cruise does visit well known and remote archaeological sites. We enjoyed the company of others from around the world who seemed to have led interesting and varied lives.”

Cruising the Carian Coast - from Mediterranean to Aegean

This gulet cruise offers a marvellous mix of fantastic ancient sites, including monumental wonders like Knidos and Kaunos and gorgeous landscapes – it is probably the least developed stretch of Turkey’s turquoise coast.

We head west from Göcek to Bodrum, ancient Halicarnassus, this gulet cruise offers a marvellous mix of fantastic ancient sites, including monumental wonders like Kaunos with its exquisite rock-cut temple tombs, and beautifully preserved Knidos, a stunning marbled city arranged around a double harbour.

As well as these celebrated archaeological sites where excavations have been going on for decades, we visit ancient towns like Phoenix and Lydae, set in remote and beautiful locations, which remain as yet completely unexcavated.

This cultural tour is a perfect combination of magnificent sites, quiet coves, wondrous walks, breathtaking vistas and glorious swims.
