Singing is incredibly good fun; it's also excellent for the mind, body and spirit. The combination of singing
hiking and cruising the beautiful Turkish coastline onboard a luxury gulet is a match made in heaven.
We will also visit ruined amphitheatres, nomads and mudbaths!
If hiking isn't for you, then you just stay onboard, relax and enjoy all that gulet cruising is about.

What's included
Accommodation

Traditionally built our luxury gulet East Meets West has 4 double cabins for singles/couples and 4 twin
ensure we can keep to our schedule.

Each cabin has a private en-suite bathroom with home style toilet, shower  cubicle and hairdryer; hot water
in the evenings. Cabins have a small wardrobe, underbed storage, window and bedside light. Electricity is
available in cabins for charging mobile phones and cameras every evening. Cabins are smaller than a hotel
room but larger than you’d find on a typical sailing yacht. Bath towels are provided, please bring your own
beach towel.

The bar, galley and salon are located in the wheelhouse where there are stunning 360° views. With plenty of
sunbeds on the fore and aft decks choose how to relax; sunbathing, reading, chatting or perhaps you’ll even
sleep here under the stars. There’s plenty of time to swim and snorkel too.

Meals are taken on the aft deck where you’ll enjoy a different view with every meal.

Experienced and trained choir leader, Sophia Efthimiou joins us on the
cruise and takes you to specially chosen spots where you can sing
together as a group.

We'll take you ashore to gather at a deserted beach with just the sound
of the waves gently running over the pebbles.

After cruising through reedbeds, past ancient tombs high on the hillside
you'll sing in the garden of nomads or in the well-preserved ruined
amphitheatre of the Roman city of Kaunos.

In between cruising, the boat will be moored in small coves and bays
so you can enjoy swimming, snorkelling or just floating in the warm,
clear turquoise Aegean sea. Or just spend time relaxing with a good
book and interesting conversation.

You might even decide to go to a Hamam where you can enjoy the full
experience of a Turkish Bath, complete with Steam Room, full body
wash, scrub and aromatherapy massage.

We have a great reputation for our food, cooked using fresh local
ingredients.

Cruise will start/finish in Marmaris/Fethiye  (note: may operate in
reverse, direction to be confirmed nearer the time)

NEW Sing & Cruise
Sing and Gulet Cruise
Singing in the ruins of an amphitheatre
Roman amphitheatre of Kaunos

Rating:  The walks are graded Low-Intermediate. The terrain is rocky
underfoot with plenty of loose stones, walking poles are very useful. If
some hiking experience to do these walks. Walking Boots are essential
(with or without ankle support)

There are a couple of more gentle walks too. So if you love to sing but
don't like to hike, you can still join us. There are worse things in life than
staying onboard to enjoy some peace and quiet with a book or a mask
and snorkel whilst the others are out hiking!
