      Not quite as advertised.
      Overall, a great experience, excellent lunch and very full day. No glass bottom boat or hotel pickup as stated when I booked, though. Our group of 7 in Kaş was transferred to a large boat with at least 60+ persons s from everywhere. We were the only tourists among the locals, so a great cultural immersion.

      Amazing Sail Turkey with SAILNSTAY
      We went on an Olympos to Fethiye cruise with Sailnstay in May, and it was truly amazing. The views were breathtaking, and the sea was so clear. The best part was the friendships we made along the way. The crew was very professional, which allowed us to enjoy every moment. The food was delicious, and the comfort of the boat made us feel at home. Special thanks to the captain and his team for their hospitality and helpfulness. If you want to sail Turkey, I highly recommend this cruise with Sailnstay to anyone visiting!

      Best 3 Days of My Life
      This was an absolute life highlight. I honestly had no idea how much fun I was in for with this sail! Every one of our needs was perfectly catered for. I slept out under the stars. Saw some of the most amazing beaches and gorges and made some friends I hope to keep for life. The captain and crew were so lovely, the food was amazing! Highly recommend this to everyone!

      Unforgettable Sail Turkey Experience with SAILNSTAY!
      I had an amazing 3-night, 4-day Blue Cruise from Olympos to Fethiye with SAILNSTAY. The crew was professional and knowledgeable, and the boat was comfortable with stunning views of the Turkish coastline. The chef prepared delicious meals, and the team went above and beyond to accommodate special requests. I highly recommend SAILNSTAY for an unforgettable Sail Turkey adventure.

      A reason to go to Turkey
      This Gulet cruise was the reason I actually ended up deciding to go to Turkey, and it exceeded all my expectations. Personally it is better than staying at3 any all inclusive resort. Sailing across the calm turquoise waters, jumping in and out of the ocean, snorkeling, and exploring different islands was the most incredible experience. The food was delicious. I was traveling solo and was lucky enough to end up with a great group of people, some other solo travellers and some couples. The crew are experienced and professional. It is incredibly well run. The tour company that organised the gulet cruise was Farout. And they were really helpful with all my questions. You do need to be organized in figuring out how to get to your destination. Also make sure you have enough cash with you.

      Fantastic Tour!
      What an amazing tour!!!!! You will not be disappointed!! My cousin and I had such a lovely day. I especially enjoyed the fact that this is a small boat with only 8 people including the captain Ozden and his lovely wife Fitnat. Be sure to have your bathing suit because you will have lots of time to swim in beautiful turquoise waters. We listened to Turkish music and all of us just danced and came together as if we had been friends forever. Such a warm atmosphere created by out hosts. The tour continued by bus to the jaw-dropping Rock Tombs of Myra and 5th century B.C. Amphitheatre. It was a long fun-filled day! If I return to Turkey I will definitely do this tour again!!! Shoutout to Ozden, Fitnat and our bus driver for making this day so memorable!!!

      Fantastic Turkish Gulet experience
      My wife & I had a fantastic trip on our Gulet, the Bluefest. Everything about the trip exceeded our hopes and expectations. The Gulet was traditional and beautiful, the crew (3) were terrific, the food delicious and our fellow guests were all such fun and we got on so well. The coastal waterways (deep blue), the coastline and the towns visited were great. We even got to swim with turtles. We had a terrific holiday, and we recommend SailnStay to any aspiring travellers.

      ok but should be improved - needs better English translation
      It was amazing seeing turtles close up. The staff were friendly and helpful. The boat was good. Unfortunately a few things let it down: The instructions to find the boat weren't clear, so we struggled to do so. The staff had poor English and it was obvious that the turkish language commentary was far more detailed and interesting than the very limited English explanations and with it being explained in both languages, we had already passed quite a few things before we heard what we were supposed to be looking out for. The music was so loud that we had to raise our voices to talk to each other - we asked to turn it down and they refused. This really spoiled our time - we're not there for a beach party, we wanted to enjoy a relaxing cruise as a family, with other families. We weren't alone in this - the moment the music went on as many people as possible tried to move as far away from the speakers as possible. I hope the organisers read this and turn it down. The food was quite poor and the atmosphere spoiled by the way it was served. Overcooked, lukewarm - overcooked mushy pasta is really unpleasant to eat so my family wanted to not take any and take something else instead but we were ordered to put it back. We were told there would be water available, but when we asked there wasn't. The instructions were poor - we nearly missed the turtles because someone near us said we had to rush off the boat quickly to get to the shore to go up a river to have any chance of seeing them. That was misinformation as the people who stayed on the boat had 5 turtles swimming around them the whole time whereas we saw one in the distance, but thankfully did at least see them for a couple of minutes around the boat before we set off again. We were told there was amazing snorkelling. We were told when to put our masks on - but we saw hardly any fish, and those we did see were small and not bright colours. However, whilst these improvements could easily and should be made, we are still glad we did the cruise. The turtles were amazing to see. I'm sure Kokova submerged city would have been even better if we'd had a proper translation. The food was edible. The crew were generally helpful. We created our own fun jumping in the sea off rocks. This trip could very easily have been so much better, with very little extra effort and no extra cost. Cooking the pasta for less time saves money. Good translation would bring you more customers.

      Do not book tour with SailNStay. Terrible.
      **DO NOT BOOK WITH SAILNSTAY** I booked available spots for 4 night sail online / paid in full. After receiving confirmation emails and details for the tour we booked flights and accommodation to then be told that they had overbooked the tour and we could not go. No alternative was offered and despite saying “yes of course we will give you a refund” and then when chased “we will give you a refund in next months pay cycle” and then 8 weeks later just no reply at all. We lost the money for the tour for 2 people ($1400) + flights and accommodation for after tour).

    My wife and I found this activity by accident, but we booked it right away because of the availability. And what a pleasant surprise it was! We can definitely recommend this tour from Kaş to Kekova. Everything was perfect, from the organization to the transfer, the boat, the service, the friendly people, the lunch and of course the sights we saw. Kekova is a beautiful place with a lot to see and with this tour you will see some of the most beautiful spots, history and beautiful blue water and get a very delicious lunch, some water, fruits and you can relax in a small boat in the shadow with a small group (we were only 8 persons). You will have enough time at each location to swim, take pictures and see everything you want. The transfer driver is a funny guy. The boat captain and his wife are really hospitable and very lovely. Don't hesitate, you won't regret it. We had a wonderful day and would definitely do it again with Sailnstay.

    Bad experience when going back to Kas: Before starting the ride to Kas, a private boat trip guide somehow joined the ride and ordered the driver to change the locations (to other 2 attractions instead of Kas) for his group. All other passengers were forced to follow the guide's plan and delay the schedule for 2 hours. During the 2 hours, we can only shop nearby and wait for them! How ridiculous and wasting all of our time. Even we complain to the company contact person, they have no action!

    Btw, the ship is quite crowded and don't expect a comfortable seat.
