TESTIMONIALS

Everything about this trip was flawless - communication with Michael, the gulet, the food, and most of all the people. The warmth of the crew and Serdar, particularly in their interactions with our children (9 and 14) made the trip. Thank you.
Jill Horwitz, California, USA

The gulet had to be easily the the best part of our trip. The ship’s captain Ali made the holiday very special for us as did the rest of the crew. We went to Cleopatra’s Island and snorkeled around one of the bays and spotted amphora in all their glory, so we were wrapped. We visited so many beautiful bays and indulged many hours watching the various backdrop of mountains pass us by. We made the most of the kayaks and enjoyed exploring the coastlines and going on treasure hunts...So all in all it was a holiday that we will never forget and we loved the people, the country and all that Turkey had to offer to us.

elegant boat...cooking excellent...I would definitely repeat the experience.

We had the most beautiful, best kept gulet in Turkey, without question. The gulet was splendid, her exterior and interior both. Our cabins were sparkling clean and well outfitted. The deck had ample space for reading and sunning. And we also loved the galley where we could watch all the food being prepared.

Private Gulet Charters

Expert-led charters

In addition to our scheduled gulet cruises we specialise in expert-led gulet charters. You can choose a gulet trip just like one of our scheduled trips, 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) in Turkey, Greece and Italy 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.

Cost

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 such a 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 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 £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 a private charter, do please get in touch. We’ll be delighted to help.
