Gulet Blue Cruise - any recommendations?

Hello

I'm researching 3 night/4day gulet cruises for my fiancee and myself in the first week of June. I've narrowed it down to 3 and have read a fair number of good reviews about BeforeLunch but quite like the itineraries of the other two as well as the inclusives in their price.

I have 2 questions:

1. Can anyone let me know if they've used the others and what their experience was? I can't seem to find any reviews about them online

www.ecoturkey.com/en/read-more.html?ref=22518

mybluecruise.com/fethiye-to-olympos-blue-cru…

2. BeforeLunch seems to be the priciest of them all but can anyone give me a rough estimate of how much I should budget extra for on-board drinks and food outside of the meals?

Many thanks

Hello,

I've had a look through those but couldn't find those operators hence my query if anyone had used them. The only reviews I can find are on BeforeLunch

Mybluecruise.com have some blurb among the Fethiye attractions but I would really like to hear from someone who has some experience with them. EcoTurkey don't seem to be here at all but I'm chancing that perhaps a TA user might have used them or know of them

Thanks again

We've just returned from a week aboard the gulet and a 14 Days Turkey Tour which was organised by Eco Turkey Travel in UK---what a great week!

The captain and his crew were amazing-- and the food was 5* and the cook even managed to make birthday cake for my fiance in his tiny kitchen.

Eco Turkey Travel organised this Gulet Holiday tour with a 14 Days Turkey Tour fon us. And the tour manager was great -

I would definetly recommend their services for anyone who is planning to visit Turkey.

You can check their web site for plenty of Turkey tours and Gulet Cruise holidays. www.ecoturkey.com

We have done the 3day fethiya to Olympus cruise. We booked through Carole and Tayfun website. We found it not as good as any of thee full 7 day trips because, it was not long enough to get to know other passengers. It was more a means of travel from a to b than holiday. Food was poor compared to the full trips. The itinery was governed by passengers either joining or leaving the boat and we bearly got a glimpse of the places mentioned. We did enjoy ourselves but it wasn't anywhere as good.
