Private Gulet Charters
In addition to our scheduled escorted tours and gulet cruises, we also offer expert-led private gulet charters, using high quality traditional Turkish gulets for bespoke tours in Turkey, Greece and Italy.
We specialise in expert-led gulet charters. You can choose a gulet trip just like one of our scheduled escorted gulet holidays, with the opportunity to explore the ancient sites of Greece, Italy or Turkey. We create gulet charters to order - your own tailor-made cruise (including airport transfers, entrance fees, transport to sites, food etc. - virtually everything) escorted by one of our expert guides and specialists. They will bring the region’s culture and history vividly to life and also ensure everything runs smoothly so you can relax and enjoy the experience completely.
Each expert-led private charter is tailor-made specifically for you, and is created from a great variety of options and add-ons. The price of an expert-led gulet charter can therefore vary greatly depending on your precise desires and requirements. As such, the following is only a general guide, but it will give you some idea of the price range involved.
In 2014, the price for a 1-week cruise on one of our scheduled expert-led gulet tours:
- in Turkey is £2,125 per person
- in Greece is £2,340 per person
- in Italy is £3,595 per person
Generally speaking the larger the group the less expensive a charter becomes per person. The cost for a party of eight people or more is normally slightly less than our scheduled tour prices. If you have a party of 12 or more you’ll start to see substantial discounts on our scheduled tour prices per person.
This price includes: full board accommodation on the gulet, the services of a specialist guide and a local Turkish guide who will accompany you throughout the trip, entrance fees, site transfers, airport transfers, gratuities on land, harbour fees, crew services, fuel, all mineral water, teas and coffees, wine with dinner.
This price doesn’t include: flights, airport taxes, visas, travel insurance and on-board gratuities (we recommend £6-8 per guest per day). There is a reasonably priced bar on board.
Turkish gulets large or small
All the gulets we use have been hand-crafted in Turkey. Gulet charters can be arranged for couples or small parties looking to charter a boat with just a few cabins, or for much larger groups of travellers looking to charter a gulet with up to a maximum of 12 cabins.
Crewed yacht charter
We do not offer bare boat charter. All the gulets we work with are fully crewed, with a captain and cook, and additional deck hands depending on the size of the boat. All you need to do is lie back, gaze at the horizon, and relax.
The Gulet Chartering Season
We offer gulets for charter from April until the end of October. Please bear in mind that charter prices differ significantly between the low season, spring and October, and high summer - August is the most expensive, followed by July, September and June.
Cruising in Turkey, Greece, or Italy
As well as the sheer pleasure of being onboard a gulet, there is so much you can do as you cruise upon the Mediterranean, should you wish to do more than just relax. If you are interested in chartering a gulet, do please get in touch. We’ll be delighted to help.
