We had the most amazing 3 days sailing with Captain Ahmet on his 23m traditional gullet boat, Ros, around the islands off Fethiye. The food was wonderful & every day we swam and snorkelled in the beautiful clear water. One of the highlights was the trek from Cleopatra Baths. The view is just superb - definitely not to be missed... More

This was a very relaxing cruise with good food, lots of swimming time, a wonderful trek, and the boat itself is very comfortable. The places you go to are all wonderful and the captain decides based on weather, other boats, and his local knowledge - but there is never too much cruising. My favourite spot was Cleopatra Bay/Baths, where you... More

A friend and I (both females) choose this cruise based on reviews that the food was better than the other cruises. In our opinion, the food, Captain's insights and dialogues, and crew far over-exceeded all expectations. We arrived by bus the night before the cruise and Captain Ahmet graciously let us stay in our cabin on the boat that night... More

Ahmet and the crew where great my father and took a 3 night cruise which was amazing, the way that Ahmet goes about running the trip with such class and his care for the environment showed how much he truly loved his job and his workplace, the food was also amazing

Firstly - I loved this trip, we met some awesome new friends from Scotland we hope to see if we find ourselves in Europe again. This trip was after 3 weeks of being in Turkey, we'd already had time in Istanbul, a 4 day trip to Goreme and a 10 day tour along the coastline from Istanbul. The cabins aren't... More

I've now taken the 4 day trip with Before Lunch twice (2012 and 2016). Both times were fabulous. The food is top notch! It's healthy, delicious and some of the best food I've had in Turkey. We did all the optional hikes and they were spectacular. We had plenty of swimming opportunities. It was very relaxing. We chose to sleep... More
