I just wanted to say thank you for a lovely week in the gullet. Everything went very well: the rest of the guests were very nice, and the crew was great: very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed the cruising, the swimming, the landscape…everything!!
Now we have to see how this “covid” situation ends up, and what next year will be like. We might be in touch with you again …. We still have in mind to do a gullet cruise in the Greek Islands… But who knows what will happen!! I am planning to go to Spain to visit my parents, but the situation there is going worse and worse… Let´s hope they find a vaccine soon.
I hope your summer has been ok, and work has been busy. It is a shame the amount of companies that are closing because of lack of customers.
Many thanks again for a lovely holiday.

Dopo mesi di lockdown, è esattamente la vacanza che ci voleva. Bellissima baia di Gokova con meno barche rispetto agli anni passati. Tutto ben organizzato, ottimo cibo, bei posti, tanto mare e sopratutto libertà nella natura senza limiti. Grazie per la pazienza e flessibilità visto che la nostra prenotazione era per maggio, ma alla fine c’è l’abbiamo fatta. Un caro saluto a tutto lo staff e a presto

Serena, grazie per la recensione. Buon rientro e ci auguriamo di rivedervi a bordo
22 August 2019
Tutto il personale di Greekislands ci ha fornito sempre un ottimo servizio prima e dopo.I luoghi della crociera erano molto belli ed il comandante del caicco, così come gli altri 2 membri dell’equipaggio, è sempre stato molto disponibile con i passeggeri. La cucina è sempre stata ottima e con porzioni abbondanti.
La barca era piuttosto vecchia. La cabina mancava di scaffali ove riporre gli oggetti personali e l’armadio era piccolo con solo 5 stampelle per 2 persone ed era pieno a metà di giubbetti di salvataggio. L’aria condizionata funzionava solo con il generatore diesel acceso (molto rumoroso) e nei pochi casi in cui siamo stati ormeggiati, il caicco non è MAI stato collegato all’elettricità del porto il che ci avrebbe permesso di disporre dell’aria condizionata per tutta la notte.
Il programma annunciava con enfasi la visita ed il pernottamento al “Porto Inglese” che però è risultato NON ACCESSIBILE poiché da più 3 anni il Presidente Turco vi ha edificato una villa per uso personale. Infine, si è guastato anche il motore del tender.

Buon giorno Matile, grazie per la sua recensione. Siamo felici che ha aprezzato i posti visitati e l’equipaggio a bordo.
Per quanto riguarda l’aria condizionata; questa viene accesa non oltre la mezzanotte. Il generatore fa rumore su tutte le imbarcazioni e serve per rinfrescare le cabine, ma non può essere paragonata al hotel. L’uso in porto è vietato.
Il porto inglese è una baia, non c’e nulla di visitabile, a parte i due ristoranti se si desidera cenare fuori. Il porto inglese non è un vero porto, ci sono due moli in legno di propietà dei ristoranti. Altrimenti, non c’e nulla da visitare o fare una passeggiata. Per questo motivo i caicchi li fanno rada e cena a bordo. Il presidente turco ha la villa nelle vicinanze, è vero. Credo che il capitano si sia espesso male, non è la villa del presidente nelle vicinanze la raggione per cui non si scende al porto inglese, ma il fatto che non esiste un porto.
Ci auguriamo di ospitala a bordo dei nostri caicchi ancora in futuro
Great cruise, but not a night in Bodrum
11 July 2019
Our gulet cruise on Gumus boat was a wonderful experience. The crew of four tended to each travellers needs very well. They spoke basic English, but was fun.The food was varied and delicious each meal. The other travellers on the whole were good to be with.
The only negative is the first and last night which was in Bodrum Marina. Unfortunately between 11pm til 4am each night approximately six Night Clubs blast unbearable music all over the water front allowing for no sleep, tourism at it’s worse.
Response from Greek Islands Booking
Dear Diana, thank you for your review. We happy to hear you enjoy your cruise. Unfortunatelly, your gulet did not find place in a quiet part of the port. Our captains are doing their best, but in July and August there are many boats nad some bars play really loud music. Sometimes we stay in a bay, but as there were departures from early morning, this solution was not possible. We are really sorry about this.
