Hi Everyone, I hope that you are all keeping well. Attached is a lovely photo that we took of our entire group on the last night in Bodrum. I would just like to say a few words of thanks to all of you for making this such a Special Trip for all of us – Unforgettable !!!!!! Yasmin, your efficiency, enthusiasm, organisation, open friendliness and Beautiful Smile was a great bonus to all of us in the organisation of our week. You made it very easy for us from the start and for that we are truly grateful. Hopefully you will come and visit us in South Africa one day !!! Aisha – Wow, what an awesome Hostess. I don’t think that there is a better one out there. Yasmin, you were so correct when you told us about Aisha and how lucky we were to have her on board. Her efficiency, Gorgeous Smile, tireless nature, larger than life personality and ability to get on with all types of personality was Amazing. However, her sweet loving, patient and fun nature with the children was phenomenal. I have never seen so many kids in such a small environment be so at ease and have so much fun. Between Aisha and Conti they really entertained and loved our kids as their own. A great attribute in any person. I am of the belief that I always trust my children’s instincts with people – well they are both obviously Fantastic Souls. Please let Aisha know that “Grumpy is missing his Doo Doo’s ( Sleeps ) on the Boat” !!!!!!!!!!! Conti – what a lovely, sweet natured young lady. Nothing was ever too much trouble, even the language barrier did not stop this young lady from assisting, caring for the kids or sorting one of the Big Baby Adults out. Everything she did was done quietly, efficiently and without a big fuss. Her ability with the children as I said above was also Phenomenal. Her job was done so quietly, quickly and efficiently. KaptanSuleyman – What an amazing man, so gracious, quiet and efficient. He really knows his seas and ensured that we were always in a great position and never missed anything important. His kindness and patience with the children and their rides was fantastic. In particular, my Joshua had him working hard at getting him up on the wakeboard and ski’s behind the boat. Never once getting irritated but always with a Huge, Patient Smile. Thank you for that !!! Henry remarked to me after our Tube Ride that it was ‘The best ride ever” – made me even cry ! Ferdi&Ozi – What quiet, gentle souls. Never faltering at their job and managing to do it all around us lounging around without getting in our way when we were for certain in theirs. Never a complaint though ! Also both very patient with a very loud and boisterous bunch, getting us to a fro in the boats which was no easy task with us lot. It was probably like trying to herd a 100 goats which I think would have been easier for them. All the while though, with a big, patient, gentleman like assistance and smile on their faces. Their wonderful nature did not go unnoticed with the children who loved playing soccer with them – Thank you. Hayri – Wow, what Delicious Food. I ate things that I never thought I would ever eat with absolute Gusto. Needless to say my Scale at home reflects how much I ate – it was all worth it though. His efforts ( which were very successful ) to cater for all ages was greatly appreciated and noticed by all of us. None of us were hungry at any point. In fact it was a case of when is the next meal ? Rebecca and I are still missing our morning group breakfast Chowdown, Chat and Fried Eggs !!! We cannot wait to have our Turkey reunion lunch whereby we are all going to cook 2 Turkish Dishes. Will send photo’s for Hayri to witness. We will hopefully do him proud. In conclusion, I would like to say a very Big Thank You to everyone involved for their kindness, patience, wonderful smiles and just generally Wonderful Natures. We were never, uncomfortable at any point and the staff managed to do a very difficult job within a confined space without ever interfering with any of us or our fun. Even though our language were different it never became a barrier, everything was worked out quickly and efficiently – very impressive.Wishing you all the best.Lots of Love and Hugs Angela, Bradley, Jessica and Joshua / South Africa

A Dutch family that enjoyed every single minute of their vacation. Our representative received a call with a request for a charter within 4 days. We almost gave her a burnout with all our calls and request but she handled outstanding. Everything was arranged perfect. Our representative Yasmin contacted us several times during the week to make sure we are getting pampered to the max. Unfortunately we never got the chance to meet her. When we arrived on the S. Dogu we were amazed about her condition. She was beautiful. The crew was very nice even though they had a terrible trip to come down to Rhodes (Greece) to pick us up, due to the short booking time. In the beginning the crew gave us a lot of space and they were pretty timid. But we are Dutch so the more people the more joy. We planned our trip going up north to Symi, Bozburun, Datca and back to Rhodes. We stopped at all nice quiet waters in between to have our breakfast, lunch and dinners. The chef very good. We requested a mix of French and local cuisine and he did magnificent. The island Symi is breathtaking, the small shops and restaurants in the historical town. We arrived in the morning, rented a few scooters and explored the island. A must!! Again we really enjoyed. The only comment is that if you are really into privacy and no disturbance, it will be hard because the S. Dogu is a boat without much crew areas so you will see the crew around you most of the time. But like I said, we are Dutch!

Group Leader: "What an unbelievable 3 days… In our group of 16 we couldn't have been any happier. Most of us had never been to Turkey before let alone a 90 foot gullet; all of our expectations have been greatly exceeded. The scenery in this part of Turkey is nothing short of spectacular, the Grand Acar is the perfect gullet for a group of 16 and we feel like we've been treated like kings. Captain Ahmed and his crew were the perfect hosts, making our short break as relaxed as it could possibly be. Other than that our representative Yasmin and the team have been superb. They are super efficient, very friendly and so well managed that the whole holiday happened seamlessly from the moment of booking to the moment we were dropped back off at the airport. There is no doubt we'll be back for another holiday here, we're already talking about dates Massive thanks to everyone; and on the boat to Ahmed, Ahmed, Mahmed and Mohammad. You're all superstars!" Thank you, Oli / UK The Groom: "Wow, what a fantastic three days! I couldn't have asked for a better trip, it was an incredible surprise and a huge thank you to everyone for making it such an unforgettable last weekend of bachelorhood with my closest friends. We would all love to come back again in the future maybe with some girls this time!"

I do want to tell you about our wonderful voyage on the Gulet Mehmet Bugra. Let's just start off saying this was a trip of a lifetime for everyone. As you know, when you take a vacation you have expectations that are not always met. However, this is the one vacation that not only met our group's expectations but over and beyond anything we imagined!! First let's talk about the amazing boat. It is absolutely beautiful and spacious. We weren't sure with 16 people if we would feel a little crowded which turned out to be never the case. There was plenty of room and the cabins were spacious with their own bathrooms. The crew also kept the boat very clean during our cruise. We also had so much fun with the speed boat and the water toys that I would highly recommend having these on board for the kids. Now let's talk about the amazing staff. They were attentive but let us do "literally" what ever we wanted. They never said "no" once to any of our demands! The captain was always professional and approachable but also could have fun with us in the evening. We trusted him and his staff fully to make the right decisions during our voyage. He was flexible in the route we would go to. We went to amazing places and dropped anchor in the most beautiful private coves. Our itinerary was great because we would travel in the early morning to our destination, drop anchor and have breakfast around 10:00 then we would swim all day and do the speed boat and then we would go to the marina. We would either eat on the island at a restaurant or we would eat on the boat. We had 2 dinners on the boat and the rest in the towns. Our most memorable and fun nights were on the boat! Seriously, the best time we have ever had. The transportation to and from the hotel to the boat was perfect. Honestly, not a detail was missed by Mirya Yachting or the staff on the Gulet Mehmet Bugra. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!! We hope to do it again when my son graduates from high school!

"...The holiday was for all of us far over our expectations and we were all very pleased with the yacht, the kindness of the crew and the chef who really fulfilled all our wishes. We also agreed with captain-owner our routing every day, which was a big advantage. This holiday was for all of us a very special and unforgettable endeavor. Thanks for your recommendation."

We booked Silver Moon through Mirya Yachting this Summer. They were outstanding in their organisation and help. The boat and crew could not have been better. Special mention goes to Cenay, the Captain, and Adem both of whom could not have been more accommodating. We had a magical time and will be back again.

I would like to thank you for great organization of our vacation. We spent a great time on the ship. The captain and the crew were great too. This year the organization was better than last year. I hope we will repeat it next year, of course with some different islands.

From our agent: We receive an email this morning of the assistant of Mr. Tous, telling us that Mr. Tous and his family had a really good time on board. They tell her that everything went great and that all crew and the yacht were fantastic.

The 4* gulet was overall excellent, food was wonderful. The change of sheets during the week was very pleasing. The crew was excellent and responsible in large measure for the enjoyment we experienced. The cabins were tidied with great care and there was always a crew member to insist on hanging the towels or swimsuits for us. Overall your agency acted very professionally and with a generous spirit. Your being always available on the phone and speaking fluent English (all be it with an American accent) is an enormous advantage.The hostess who Works for your agency is a great asset. Overall I thank you very much and as previously mentioned I will write you in the next few weeks about our intended trip next year
by Y.A. Switzerland, Mehmet Bugra
Just wanted to say that we 6 ladies had the most amazing time ever on Memet Bugra gullet. It was far beyond our expectations. The boat although large - allowed for each of us to have our own cabin. The islands in Greece were amazing too. Thanks so much for everything. Since we live so far away we probably won’t be able to make it out until 2017. Many thanks again!

Here we are back to Italy after a nice week in the Bodrum peninsula. Just few words to tell you that we had a beautiful week on the gulet. The boat was very comfortable but even more important the crew very pleasant and professional. They were always willing to please us with a positive attitude. The hostess was super and also the chef was very good, every member of the crew was. Thank you for the jet ski , I must say that the water toys make a great different when you travel with the children! We might consider to re do the experience next year.
by V.B. Italy, Mehmet Bugra
Thank you! We are being so spoiled and our family is in 7th heaven! Wishing you well...
