Another place that you should visit here is the landmark of the city, the
Castle of Saint Peter. It is one of the best preserved castles whose history goes back to the Middle Ages. 'Myndos Gate' that gave Alexander the Great some sleepless nights before he entered Halicarnassus is another place that you should not miss.

The Crew of three consists mainly of a captain, cook and a deckshand.
An exact yacht’s name can not be available until 1 or 2 days before departure, as numbers of bookings come in often late. This works well over the years like a cooperative and we advice you to give us your mobile phone that we stay in contact to give you captain's number and boat name.
The crew aboard our Gulets and yachts often do not have a foreign language mastered, but they almost always know a few ’every-day’ phrases and are able to understand almost all requests.
