About Us
Alaturka is a Fethiye - Turkey based Travel Company, which started operating in October 2003 by Murat Danisan (Ned 28) and Resit Kaya (Reggie 33). Run by a young management and dynamic multi-cultural team. We have a unique way of running our tours, cruises and hotels.

Brief History 
The business started when the owners bought their first yacht, 'Alcyone' in October 2003, with the focus being only Fethiye to Olympos Gulet Cruises. In March 2005 we took the new name “AlaTurka”, and each year since, enlarged the cruise routes and the number of yachts. In 2006 we further expanded to include bus tours and opened up our first hotel in Fethiye at the end of March 2007.

Our first organization office was opened in 2006, however first Head office has opened in 2009 opposite to Fethiye Marina, than Pamukkale and Olympos offices has fallowed in 2010.  Alaturka included new yachts and a new Guesthouse in Fethiye towards the end of 2010. 

Now towards 2012 - on our 9'th year; we're looking forward to our season with new cruising and bus routes, new joining crew and various new changes after reviewing our past years of experience.
