MATCHING THIS ITINERARY TO THE BEST POSSIBLE GULETS
Not every gulet owner & captain is the same or will cruise this route in the same way. Some owners may prefer to stay most of the evenings on the anchor, while others will seek small pier and tie the gulet there. One owner might show you 4 different bays and towns in a day, while others will stay in the same place for the entire day. Some captains prefer to arrive at ports early – while some do it later. Everyone has their own ways.
The most important thing for you is to realize what YOU LIKE – finding the gulet that can make your wishes a reality.
We will help you with this process. We are experienced, and we know each which owner will suit each of the groups and make them super happy.
So let us know about your wishes and keep in mind that small details (as mentioned above) – will make your cruise an incredible experience.
