Gocek GulfFor Single Travellers and Couples

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 led by her. Over the years, a loyal following of DayDreamers have joined her in exploring new locations, excavations and land excursions. Her idea of continuing this concept with the formation of The Travel Club was launched in 2012 with holidays on land and sea.

A tour leader/hostess travels with all these small group holidays. Sue Sutherland, a landscape architect by profession, led many of our schooner parties during the early years of the company and returns in 2018 as a tour leader. She is pictured below, to the right of Jenny and captain Mustafa. 

There is no charge for joining The Travel Club, but we do ask for some information from those participating in the holidays, your name, age, contact details, 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. Our philosophy of bringing together small groups of like-minded people to achieve a good social mix remains a critical factor in the success of these holidays. You can of course expect to receive the close attention to detail which is a hallmark of our business.

Gulet holiday - Bodrum-Gokova Gulf-Bodrum
A very relaxing holiday with some lovely walks along forestry trails in some of the most beautiful scenery and anchorages of the entire coastline.  Definitely a favourite with Jenny Day.

Please note that on all gulet holidays, it may be necessary to fly out one or two days beforehand (or stop over until the next return day) in order to board the boat at the appropriate time and to take advantage of direct flights from regional UK airports. We will organise transfers and hotel accommodation at our favourite new boutique hotel, the Ena in Bodrum or an equivalent hotel in Fethiye.

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.


"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."

"Many thanks again for another super trip. Great food, lovely people, fantastic crew and 2 days with sails up, simply marvellous.  I’ll be back – sooner than you think.".  Christina Watson September 2016.
