from UNITED STATES
I want to thank you again for an amazing experience cruising the Turkish coast on a gulet. We made the decision to head to Bodrum after we discovered that there is no easy way to get to Greece by train. I sent out three emails five days before our arrival not really knowing what a gulet is or how to find reputable broker.
Guletbookers responded immediately where the other responses took days. In a period of three days I must have sent 20 different emails with different questions. You again responded promptly to each email and demonstrated a level of patience that I doubt I would have found in the States. Your attention to a potential customer won my trust and you did not disappoint. Everything was exactly as represented and it was fantastic.
When we ( myself, my wife and three boys ages 10, 8 and 8) arrived in Bodrum, we were met at the airport and driven directly to the docks. You allowed us to spend the night on the boat before departing so we would not have to get a hotel room. You even surprised us with dinner on the back deck.
The Atalante was gorgeous. Beautiful wood, four cabins (each with private bathroom), spacious areas for eating both inside and out, and cushions everywhere on the deck for lounging and relaxing. The crew was equally impressive. The Captain consulted us daily about where we should go and what we wanted to do. The cook prepared three meals daily that amazed in their scope and use of fresh local ingredients. Absolutely delicious! Our third crew member quickly became best buddies with our boys. He let them drive the dingy and taught them how to fish Turkish style.
The clarity of the water and beauty of the landscapes were breathtaking. The boys loved going ashore and exploring the many ancient ruins when they where not too busy snorkeling, kayaking or jumping from the boat into the water. My wife and I caught up on all our reading and recharged our energy.
The cost was very reasonable and we could not have come close to that level of luxury for the same price in the States or Virgin Islands. We cannot thank you enough for all your help in providing an experience that will stay with us for a lifetime!
