Turkish Gulet Cruises for Families and Small Groups
At Arkadaslik Yachting, we specialize in hosting Turkish gulet cruises for families and small groups who appreciate the personal attention and niceties that come with luxury travel.
What Makes Our Private Cruises so Special?
Besides cruising on an immaculately clean, comfortable gulet and enjoying spectacular scenery enroute, you will enjoy:
- an itinerary designed to the unique interests of your group
- fantastic meals and snacks based on your group's tastes and preferences
- unlimited drinks - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic
- friendly and professional service – before, during, and after your cruise
- being treated like friends visiting our home, rather than passengers on a boat trip
