What they say about us
Jane - Wellness Massage Cruise - June 2010

I am at present sat  onboard East Meets West on a Wellness
Cruise in a gorgeous bay in Turkey. 35 degrees and gentle
breeze blowing......Myself and 6 other women are coming to
amazing food and great company. I was so nervous before I
came but you will all LOVE IT!!!
Caroline, Massage Cruise 2010
Can't say how much a holiday was needed when I joined the
boat, but to say that it has been excellent is the under
statement of the year, within a day I had totally switched off
The cruise itself is totally worth it, the food is absolutely fab,
the pampering is great and the crew themselves totally look
out for you and anticipate all your needs.  It's one of the best
holidays I think I've ever had and you will all throughly enjoy it
..... great choice to make.   
Suzy - Wellness Massage Cruise June 2010

Swimming before the breakfast bell rings, the variety and
massage treatments from the on-board therapist who has the
most delicate yet surprisingly effective hands, maybe a quick
trip to the shoreline shops before sailing to the next bay for the
next swim/meal/sun-bathing combination.... could you ask for
anything more?  Turkish bath anyone?

Claudia, Massage Cruise 2010
I couldn't agree more with the other comments.  It has been
the most fun and relaxing vacation ever.  The scenery, the
food, the relaxation can't be beat.  I came from the States and
will only reluctantly go home!
Diana, founder of Walking Women April 2009

I want to write and thank you and Adil again for such an
excellent week.
The volume of vegetables and the variety of presentation
suited us very well, vegetarians were well catered for.

Mel Levy August 2009
A special holiday for us mums (and dad) and kids -
memorable in lots of ways. Thanks for everything, we
especially loved the big swims and time for the children to be
just children. Hope to be back again.

John Weatherbed, Spice Co-ordinator

Fantastic Boat. Anne, Adil and the crew are very friendly and
nothing is too much trouble for them. I have been sailing with
them for years now and 2011 will be my 4th vacation. The boat
is always clean and tidy and the cabins are cleaned on a daily
basis. I hope to be sailing with them for years to come. I would
strongly recommend them to everyone.

Barbara - Walk & Gulet Cruise April 2010

This really is a very special trip. A wonderful opportunity to
sample some of Turkey - a very beautiful country; pleasing
every sense. I loved every second of my week - Fabulous -
Janet Walk & Gulet Cruise
September 2009

I have loved every moment of
this cruise. The food has been
absolutely wonderful. The
sailing and walking have been
very enjoyable and seeing all
the wildlife has been such a
thrill. There has been a good
balance of activities with the
ancient towns and villages an
additional pleasure. I won't
forget the mudbaths and
swimming from the boat. Thank
you for giving me lots of new

much! Adele

Walk & Gulet Cruise Oct 2010

imagined and hoped it would be. The quiet bays and
lovely views, swimming before breakfast in warm, calm,
blue sea was heavenly. The crew could not have done
more and Adil put up the sails for us. The food and
service were excellent. We could not better it as a much
needed escape. A big thank you.

Fiona B - Walk & Gulet Cruise October
Just a quick message to say how lovely it
was to stay on East Meets West at the
beginning of October. It was probably the
best holiday I have ever had and I really
didn't want to return to blighty!  
The gulet was beautiful, as was the
experience of sleeping under the stars
each night ( so many of them)
Special thanks go to the chef for the
excellent meals he prepared each day and
to the Captain and crew for their endless
patience and good humour whilst being
surrounded all week by a group of women
of a certain age !!
Good luck for the season next year
Bee and Bernard -Blue Cruise Sept 2010
Such a lovely, friendly ambiance - our week
has far exceeded our expectations. One of
the best holidays ever. Thanks Adil and the

walker and led us on some spectacular walks, in dappled shade, under ancient pines and over limestone and marble paths.

Adil handles his boat with expertise and is masterful in the kitchen. The crew are a delight, silently doing their jobs with a
playful smile on their lips. They do not appear to mind a boatfull of whacky women. I loved every minute of it.

I just wanted to let you know that the trip was delightful.
I've just arrived home from Egypt and the 'East Meets
