My family and I went of the 4 day Gulet Cruise from Fethiye to Olympos. We had the greatest time. It was nice to not have to worry about anything because they provided all meals and we slept on the boat. The kids said it was the best vacation ever. They had a lot of time to swim and there were other fun activities for them. I definitely recommend this
Wow! What a great 4 days! My husband and I took our kids on this tour and we all had a great time. There was plenty of swimming and activities to occupy the kids and the sites were stunning. The best part was that everything was included. We didn’t have to worry about anything. I would do this again in a second. Everyone loved it!
The blue cruise is a wonderful program. 4 days and 3 nights on a gulet cruise from Fethiye to Olympos! Wow what a beautiful coastline Turkey has! We had such a relaxing time. The staff on the boat were great too. We really enjoyed ourselves on this cruise. We would love to come back and do it again!
If you have a chance, book the 4 day blue cruise! It was so much fun! My husband and I had an amazing time. We met some great people and saw amazing views. It was so relaxing to cruise around the coast. We got to swim and do some shore excursions. Really one of the best vacations ever!
