Gulets are not for everyone! For me gulets offer amazing value for money, best experience you can get and they are incomparable to hotels, bare-boats, villas, motor yachts or any other type of holidays. But lots of people do not share my opinion.
I respect and value an opinion from every person. And this post is not to try to convince you that this is the best type of holidays for you. Not at all. This post is to help you determine – if gulet private charter holidays MIGHT BE THE BEST HOLIDAYS FOR YOU or they could be your worst nightmare.
If you are not a gulet cruise enthusiast but you do not know it – but you still decide on this type of holidays it means a problem for all of us:
1) You will not be happy and this means we will not be happy.
2) You will tell you all your friends that gulets are a bad way to spend your holidays.
3) You will also probably tell all your friends Gooles is a bad company.
So everybody loses.
So if you are interested in this type of holidays, make a super short test below and check out the results.
If this results will advise you to NOT GO ON A GULET CRUISE HOLIDAYS..then I advise you to follow this advice.

d) You did not yet have a 100% good holidays. Every single time somebody screws you and ruins the holidays for you and you go crazy because of it!

b) You would go crazy and call one of the crew to IMMEDIATELY CHANGE THIS old bread for new one…and you would make sure this mistake would not happen again by picking their brains.
c) You would call the agency in your country (before mentioning anything to the crew) that the bread is not fresh and that they have to do something about it.
d) You would not say anything…you would just fill your list which you have at your hand already and ask some money back when you get home from holidays.
Check your results and see where did you find the most answers.
If you have most answers (A, B) then gulets are for you. You will have a great time!
If you have most answers (C, D) then gulets ARE NOT FOR YOU. Forget about it.
If you have all replies in A – then you will be happy on every single gulet you book. All you have to do is inform us about your results and then all we have to do is concentrate mostly on the best prices and best value, and you will be super happy.
If you have also several B answers, then we have to see which replies were B and offer you gulets, programs, and arrangements according to this. Also, in this case, you will be super happy. If you like your privacy for example and you spend more than 1 hour in your bathroom at home…then we have to find you a gulet that has comfortable bathrooms and book you on a private charter gulet that has lots of deck space on a route away from crowds.
If you mostly have replied in A and B, and also some C inside – you MUST REMIND us about your Cs! If for example you like huge rooms and are keen on sailing it is both possible. But it depends on your budget. But you really have to inform us about this in advance – and you fill will have great holidays.
If you have most A, B but also some D – then probably gulets are not for you. Then I recommend you that you send us an e-mail and tell us about the test you took…and that you got some D results – and we will help you determine if this is truly such a huge problem or not.
