For the love of gulets…
We are the biggest fans of gulet cruises in the world. In our travel missions we learned the good, the bad and the ugly of gulet cruises – and we LOVE to share our experience with our clients and help them to organize the most amazing holidays of their lives.
What we do
Before you cruise
We make lots of inspections on a wide range of gulets and we cruise on our own the majority of the time. We try the food and taste the wine on every gulet we go on. We check the most amazing itineraries and we never stop brainstorming on how to enhance travel experiences for our clients. We collect the best deals & negotiate with gulet owners. We educate our partners & representatives. We monitor everything gulet cruise-related. What this means for you You will book a cruise you will really like, at the best available price, and the bill for our services will be paid by the owners.

During your cruise
We are AVAILABLE 24/7 in case you need any assistance. We make sure the gulet is waiting for you – in the same condition as it was promised. We make sure the crew is prepared for you. We make the check-in procedure go as smoothly and as enjoyable as humanly possible. We keep in close contact with the owner and that the crew are constantly delivering on their promises.
What this means for you
You just sit back and enjoy the holiday, knowing you are in good hands. All we need from you is just good, honest feedback which will help us improve our services even more for the future.

How it all works
You fill out the enquiry form, stating your wishes, needs & expectations.
The more information you provide, the happier the experience you will have.
Our sales team goes to action. Here is how they do it:
a) WHICH TOUR WOULD YOU LIKE THE MOST:
paying close attention to the information you send us, we determine which itinerary would make you the happiest person in the world.
b) WHAT ACTIVITIES WOULD IMPRESS YOU:
then we combine the tour that match your group structure. What is important during the cruise for a group of seniors with no kids is completely different than what is important for families.
c) WHICH GULET WOULD BE PERFECT: after that we ask ourselves two main questions:
- Which gulets can pull this off in the best way?
- Which gulets would fit inside your budget range?
Gulet cruise offers with route and activities suggestions are then sent to you in a user-friendly format.
If you like what you see, you book a gulet via our agency
We sign a contract and you are issued an invoice for the cruise. We can also put you in direct contact with the owner for any additional questions or queries you may have – or if you just wish to talk to owner or captain before you go on your cruise. We never proceed with the reservation until you are 100% satisfied with what you see.
How do we get paid for this service?
We send your money to the gulet owner, who then pays us commission because we gave them business.
Will you get a cheaper deal if you find a gulet owner directly?
In 80% of cases – NO. Smart gulet owners give better deals to agencies that give them lots of business rather to people coming to them directly.
In 20% of cases you will save money if you book directly via gulet owners and if you are lucky, things will all go smooth and you will havea great time. However it is a good idea to have somebody covering your interests if something goes wrong while on a cruise.
Why and How it all started
My name is Mitja and I’m the CEO and founder of Goolets agency
My wife and I started this company more than 10 years ago for one reason, and one reason alone: to provide you with the same experience we’ve had, when enjoying our first gulet
My family and I have an active lifestyle. We love to explore new hidden places, experience new vistas and try the local cuisine – but most of all, we love to spend our vacation traveling from place to place.
We are not one of those families who can stay in the same apartment or hotel room the entire vacation.
We’ve been hooked on gulet cruises ever since our first cruise vacation taken in 2004. The very next year we opened for business and more than 10 years later, we are one of the biggest players in industry.
We are proud of what we managed to accomplish and our entire family is looking forward to our future goals and plans.
We hope you will join us on this journey.
We expanded our business by surrounding ourselves with like-minded individuals, others who also love the Mediterranean and share our love for these types of holidays with people who share our passion of gulet cruises.
Each of them contributes their respective area of expertise that makes Goolets one of the best in the business.
That’s why we spend every day putting all our strength into providing our clients with the best possible vacations ever!
We know from personal experience that renting a gulet can be quite tiresome.
That’s simply because of the fact that it’s a difficult time trying to decide which gulet suits your needs.
There’s just so many different vessels to choose from! We hope that we can also provide YOU with a pleasant experience and help you organise the most amazing holiday you’ve ever had.

Why Goolets? What’s with the name?
Do you know what goggles are? Some smart company used this reference and came up with the name ’Google.’
We copied this idea from them (but this is on the quiet!) We changed GULETS to GOOLETS and the rest is history.
GOOLET cruise means planning your gulet cruise holidays in a way where you will have the best possible holiday ever – not leaving anything to chance.
