For Single Travellers, Couples and Friends

Cevri Hasan V

Jenny Day has been bringing together individuals and couples into small group holidays in Turkey for over 30 years. Many of these holidays have been personally lead by her. Over the years, a loyal following of DayDreamers have joined her in exploring new locations, excavations and land excursions.

Jenny is no longer able to travel on a regular basis with these boat parties, but under Captain Taner of Cevri Hasan V, the same philosophy applies.  We like to bring together small groups of like-minded people to achieve a good social mix, mostly ages from 40 upwards. This approach is a critical factor in the success of these holidays. You can expect to enjoy the close attention to detail which is a hallmark of our company.

We do ask for some information from those participating in these holidays, as we try to put together a group of like-minded individuals. Along with your name, age and contact details we might ask about your profession and/or interests. We do not pass this information on to third parties, it is for our internal use only. We might also ask for information on your fitness to travel if it is appropriate to the holiday.

DayDreams Travel offers gulet holidays, charters and cabins on a wide range of gulets from low budget to luxury and superior deluxe gulets with numerous itineraries along the Turkish coastline and Dodecanese islands. 

Tailor-made land tours to Istanbul, Cappadocia and throughout the Aegean and Mediterranean regions can be added.

DayDreams Travel was founded by Jenny Day in 1987 following a 5-day/5 star corporate weekend to Istanbul for 100 clients from her London based PR consultancy. Using her expert organisational skills  she put together several  gulet charters. They were so successful the word spread and her dream of offering a special style of holiday  to a wider audience become a reality.


"Over the years many things change, some for the worst.  Not so DayDreams. This was our fifth visit to Turkey, this time on Cevri Hasan V and it was as good as always.  Many thanks to Jenny, Taner and crew".  Donald & Adrienne Liddell from Wiltshire.  May 2019

"Our fifth trip in 23 years and just as much fun as ever.  Great company, great food, great trips and great crew.  Thank you Jenny, Mustafa and the boys Mehmet Ali and Kadir."  Gerald & Danuta Tagg from England September 2017

"We have enjoyed a wonderful relaxing time on Cevri Hasan III with Mustafa and the boys - can't believe it's 30 years since we first met Jenny on our first gulet holiday before DayDreams was born.  It just gets better each time".  Mike & Carolyn Freeman from England, June 2017."
