An excellent way to end our 5 week trip to Turkey. Sailing on the historic strait, seeing the sites and being educated on their historical significance was a true blessing. They were great with our children and in the age of Coronavirus it's best to take a private experience than leave your loved ones exposed to others.

John is on top of his game and Mert is a blast to be around. These guys know how to have a good time and they make you feel welcome from the jump. It’s easily the most fun I’ve had in İstanbul thus far also the captain of the yacht is an awesome dude.
