Reviews for Turkey gulet cruise, Fethiye and Kekova


review 15 Oct 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Being able to swim from the boat on route to the next shore adventure and enjoy the ride up on deck, basking in the sun.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Travel light, you don't need much in the way of clothes. Cozzy, sarong, beach towel, shorts, a couple of vest tops/t-shirts & flops + sturdy sandals (for walking up stony paths for sunset views, etc) is all you need.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

In a limited way - yes - because our booking was via a local Turkish operator. The boat crew were Turkish - but unfortunately their customer service was somewhat lacking at the end of the season & get they still expected to be benefit tipped, on top of the high priced drinks on board.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The ports & places visited were fine, but our crew gave us no daily information on what was at our next destination & how we were docking there. Was it by dingy - or was it by pier?? We never knew so didn't know whether it was flip .com or sandals required. 8 of us were given a welcome meeting which didn't cover all the expectations of us on board. The 4 other passengers who were late joining the boat had no welcome meeting at all. We were given the WiFi code - which was great! The captain advised that some overnight mooring bays had no signal - that was accepted, no problem. After Day 3 we had no WiFi at all for the rest of the trip. The captain said all the week's usage had been consumed - so the password changed & only the crew had access. That was a disappointing game changer. None of us could WhatsApp our fun photos to our family & friends at the end of a lovely day. As it 's October, it's dark by 7.30pm. It would have been a nice evening pass-time, swapping pics among our group.... then sending on worldwide all the fun we'd had that day. Would have been brilliant free advertising for what was otherwise a great value for money holiday. What a shame! Due to the issues mentioned, I just can't give it the 5-star it should have deserved.
