Highly recommend the Emir 1 and her crew. Very spacious and comfortable with excellent clean facilities. Delicious freshly prepared lunch and other delights served in between. Ilker, is a superb host and guide and handy with a bucket of mud! You won’t be disappointed.

Hi Nicola, it cost us £300 for a private full day cruise, which included lunch, tea/coffee and cakes. Drinks were extra as they are on all trips. I can not recommend this boat and crew enough, it was simply perfect...so much... More
