“My husband & I decided to arrange a very special, once in a lifetime, holiday. We wanted to take our 5 adult children, along with their partners, away to celebrate the significant birthdays we were both having this year. It was a selfish desire on our part & ‘compulsory fun’ for them!  The only decision that we had made was it had to be on a Turkish Gulet. By happy coincidence, we were recommended to Jenny Day & DayDreams Travel by an Australian friend. Unlike some people we had no fixed idea of what we wanted or where we wanted to go, other than have  a fabulous, relaxing holiday!  

Jenny was very helpful & attentive to detail with suggestions of itineraries, menus & drink selections. Very patient too when flights kept getting moved. She was also very knowledgeable about the boat, the crew, the area & other more loosely connected things that were of importance to us. Our trip was unique. It was designed for us, tailor-made. Our telephone discussions sketched out the ideas, Jenny put flesh on the bones & then we approved the plans, tweaking where necessary.  

Cevri Hasan V, Captain Taner & his crew were beyond our wildest expectations. Every detail was perfect but the best part was that everything was relaxed & effortless. We were made to feel completely at home & any request was met with a big smile & a ‘can do’ attitude. One concern our children had was that a week was a long time to be together in a confined space….  With so many things to do, swim, paddle board, kayak, sail, water ski etc & the Captain’s innate hospitality skills, nobody felt trapped at all. We all did our own thing very happily & gathered together for meals, which were superbly prepared, truly delicious & particularly plentiful.  

It was honestly the best holiday Jeremy & I  have had & we have been privileged to enjoy some beautiful & elite destinations. We had the most wonderful time with all the family, making many happy & some hilarious memories.  And interestingly, this sentiment was echoed by each of the ‘children’ too.” Sara & Jeremy Curnock Cook travelled from the UK in late May 2019



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

DayDreams Travel was founded by Jenny Day in 1987 following a corporate weekend to Istanbul for 100 clients from her London based PR consultancy. Using her expert organisational skills she went on to organise 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.


“TrendonTravel – Gulet Holidays
We occasionally have family conversations about which was our favourite holiday. Always high on the list was a week we spent on a gulet, sailing along the Turkish coast, anchoring to swim and enjoy lunch in a quiet bay or a marina in the evening….” The full article by Nick Trend appeared in the January 12, 2013 issue of the Saturday Telegraph.

“I recreated our favourite family holiday to celebrate my husband’s 70th birthday and all the family joined us for a week. Everyone, aged 11 to 70, had a fabulous time. There was enough space for moments of quiet but mainly we partied! The boat was beautiful, the crew were all charming, the food was delicious and the sun shone. Perfect! Luckily I have a big birthday next year!” Kate Warnock-Smith and family travelled on Kaya Guneri 3 in August 2016
