Average rating 5 out of 5 from 754 reviews for Private Gulet Charter Trips, according to AITO reviews.
We specialise in expert-led bespoke private trips. You can choose a gulet trip just like one of our scheduled trips, with the opportunity to explore the ancient sites of Croatia, Greece, or Turkey. Your own tailor-made cruise (including airport transfers, entrance fees, transport to sites, food etc. – virtually everything) is escorted by one or two of our expert guides and specialists. They 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.
“We were a group of nine (six adults and three pre-teens) who just spent the most amazing 7 days on a gulet charter visiting the Carian Coast in Turkey. The trip included something for everyone and was amazingly tailored to satisfy the wishes and desires of everyone in our party. We are looking forward to our next opportunity to sail/tour with Peter Sommer Travels.” Ann White, London, UK
How Much Does a Private Gulet Cost?
Each expert-led private trip is created from a great variety of options and add-ons. The price of such a charter can therefore vary, depending on your precise desires and requirements.
Generally speaking, the larger the group, the less expensive it 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 a reduction on our scheduled tour prices per person.
The price includes:
Full board accommodation on the gulet
Services of a specialist guide and a local guide who will accompany you throughout the trip
Gratuities on land
All mineral water
Teas and coffees
Wine with dinner
The price does not include:
Turkish gulets large or small
All the gulets we use for charter have been hand-crafted in Turkey. A private gulet charter 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 charters or cabin charters without an expert-guide. 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.
When is the Gulet Chartering Season?
We offer gulets for charter from April until the end of October. Please bear in mind that the price of a gulet charter differs significantly between the low season, spring and October, and high summer – August is the most expensive, followed by July, September and June.
“We experienced one of the most restful, interesting and fun trips ever and it was educational, enriched by our expert guide and archaeologist Serdar. The Turkish gulet was 5 star accommodation, with amazing meals and the most attentive and caring staff. Thank you all. What a memorable trip for us.” Janet Cheetham and Gerard Palmer, South Australia

Peter Sommer Travels provided us an unparalleled opportunity to explore Turkey from ancient to modern times. The tremendous beauty of the natural setting combined with the knowledge and expertise of the guide made for an unforgettable adventure! The gulet's accommodations and elegance - including the sumptuous meals and extraordinary opportunities to swim or explore on kayak or windsurfer - made a relaxing and reviving base, too. We will never forget this trip with Peter Sommer Travels...and are already planning for another one!

The holiday of a life time - our gulet adventure in the Dodecanese Greek Islands was without a doubt our favourite family trip. The comfort and beauty of the gulet, the incredibly caring crew, the delicious food, the history we learned from our competent and friendly leader, along with the stunning beauty of the islands. Swimming in the most gorgeous coves, kayaking on crystal blue waters, hiking around ruins and into small remote villages and relaxing on the boat... it was the best trip ever.
