Expert Led Archaeological Blue Cruises in Turkey
Turkey is the great country with beautiful coastline, wonderful landscape, impressive ancient sites and Turqoise Sea. The south and soutwest of Turkey was the center of unique civilisations and cultures such as Lycians and Carians. One of the best ways to explore the Mediterranean coast of Turkey is a blue cruise or a gulet charter.

After leading tours and working for several reputable tour companies in Turkey, I decided to organize my own blue cruises in Turkey to share my knowledge with travellers. We offer exceptional archaeological and cultural blue cruises in Turkey. As a local licensed tour guide and archaeologist, I know what travellers would like to see and experience when they travel to Turkey. Archaeological blue cruise is one of the best way to explore the ancient wonders of Mediterranean Coast. We follow off the beaten paths, less known and visited sites, meet the local people on our blue cruises. Our private and small group boat cruises will give you a chance to explore and to learn the rich culture of Turkey.
I am still leading my own blue cruises in Turkey where I know the its culture, history, food and people. We focus on exploring the beautiful historical cost of Turkey with small groups up to 12. We don’t arrange standart and regular blue cruises with swimming every day or but we discover the hidden treasures of Turkey on our traditional wooden yacht. For many years, I have realized that people who are travelling in Turkey on a blue cruise are offered the same itinearies with the lack of ancient history and local culture. We explore some of the best preserved ancient cities, small coastal towns and Mediterranean villages on our blue cruises. We walk through ancient sites with marble theatres, temples and churches. Our blue cruise itinearies offer beautiful hikes to the ancient sites and local villages. We are cruising on a luxury wooden motor boats also called gulet boats and we enjoy the best Mediterranean and local food. We design custom made 1 week blue cruise itineararies based on your wishes, travel style and your travel dates to Turkey.

Our Blue Cruises in Turkey are mainly offering archaeology, culture, hiking, walking and gastronomy. Please visit Gulet Cruises page for more information about our blue cruise packages in Turkey. If you need a private blue cruise in Turkey for your family or friends with a unique archaeological and cultural experience, come and join us for a life time journey.

Hi Aykut,
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! All of us had an incredible time on our gulet trip in Turkey. Thank you so much for such an amazing trip. We loved the boat, we loved the food, we loved your enthusiasm for the incredible and rich history of Turkey. We all learned so much and enjoyed all of the stories that you shared with us. Everything was so seamless and easy - from being picked up at the airport, to the van pick-ups that took us to some of the sites, to the fabulous food, wine, swimming, kayaking, to getting us back to the airport at the end. I know you were working, but I do hope that you had as much fun as we did.We all really enjoyed getting to know you and everyday was a real treat. The kids had a ball as well - especially swimming and the day that we went to the abandoned Greek village - they loved that! They also enjoyed all of the ice creams, tea, nutella, crepes and scarves that were sold on the boat! If anyone is considering a trip with you, I would be happy to speak with them and share more information about how great our experience was!!Tesekkür ederim.
