Hi Kim, Captain Saddettin’s crew were amazing! Hard working and good humoured, nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel very special. The meals that Sener prepared for us were absolutely magnificent. CANER IV is beautiful and provided an extremely high level of comfort to us, with numerous well shaded spots to lie and read a book or doze off as was often the case. The cabins were also fantastic. The pride that the crew took in keeping the boat clean and shining was often remarked upon between us and it added to the feeling of luxury on board. So could we have wished for anything else? .....I can’t think of anything! This was our second Gulet voyage in Turkey through your company and would we do it again? … Definitely!
The Gulet trip was superb and we can't speak highly enough of Tufan 5 with Captain Kemal, his son Tufan and chef Yusuf. They were a pleasure to spend a week with, the meals were superb, and the boat very comfortable We found Turkey a wonderful and absorbing country - we will certainly go back at some time for further travels.
I was very impressed by SJ Travel’s responsiveness and recommendations. Miss Angel was a wonderful boat with the most incredible crew. They were all so hard working and so personable. I will highly recommend to friends.
Exceeded expectations comes to mind. The crew was excellent in every way: hard working, courteous, great attitude. The yacht was great.
Spectacular week on a beautiful ship and excellent crew with constant attention to our needs. Their service was carried out in a friendly and engaging way. The food was uniformly delicious. Captain Mustafa was delightful and we always felt safe in his hands.
We loved the trip. The crew was wonderful and so nice. Captain Gursel, Ayhan and Selo worked together seamlessly and professionally with warmth, care and hospitality towards their guests.
Hi Kim We had a wonderful holiday. All the staff, the land tour, the gulet were fantastic. Turkey was so good! Nev and Metin were excellent on the land trip. ARIVA was wonderful as well. One of the best holidays we’ve had.
Too many highlights to highlight! Hard to improve on a 5 star trip! The crew were attentive, yet discreet at all times. Meals were continuously delicious and well presented. The destinations were wonderful. A great 10 days in every way. Can’t think of anything that would improve this cruise. It was superb. Highlights were the staff, the food, the scenery and the sensitive service. The crew’s attention to the passengers, their thoughtful, selfless care of us, the comfort of the boat and superb meals. To improve the overall cruise – make it longer, 10 days was not enough!
We enjoyed and valued our time on Gemibasi enormously. The service from SJ Yachting and the crew could not be faulted. Thank you.
We had a fantastic time on our trip back in June. I saw that you posted the drawing with the octopus ink on your facebook page...really a very nice memory.
Just to give you some feedback, we all had a wonderful time on Sunworld 8. We were very happy with the boat and with the crew, they were all extremely helpful at all times and a delight to deal with. The food was good and the quantities more than enough. Your representative in Gocek, Selda, was most helpful and at your end, Melissa was excellent. Thank you to you and your team for your help in making the holiday such a success.
Hi Kim, Overall our nine day boat trip on the Smyrna 2 (Bodrum, Rhodes, Bodrum) was great. The highlights included our three nights in Symi Island as well as the wonderful meals prepared by the boat's chef. Your help in connecting with Father John Luke Gregory on Rhodes so we could celebrate our 25th wedding anniversay in a Catholic church really made the trip. Thank you!!! Warm wishes
Hi Kim, Melissa & Seda, We would like to thank you for organising the most awesome cruise for us. It was the highlight of our trip to Turkey and was also really made perfect by the very experienced Captain Ibrahim and the most lovely, courteous Halil, whose catering could not be bettered by any restaurant that we later visited in Istanbul. Please send our best wishes and thanks to them both and wish them all the best in the future.
Hi Kim The general feeling when we got off the gulet was that we had enjoyed it immensely Caner IV was excellent and the crew were exceptional. We thought that 7 days was too short and 10 would be better. I am sure that we will have a group for 2016 Many thanks for the smooth and efficient experience
We had a fantastic week. Loved the boat and the great crew! We will be back in 2 years time!
All went fabulously - the crew were superb and the sailing magnificent! Thanks again, superb holiday! Will be discussing 2015 whenever you're ready to start taking bookings,
