October 2007
Dear Alicia and Thanassis,

The best vacation of our life was rewarded with beautiful new friends. We have enjoyed every moment - snorkeling, following Odysseus, trying to fish, but especially Alicia's beautiful meals. Thanassis' lessons in history and seamanship and finally learning the Greek dance steps!

Best Wishes,
Wendy, John and Meg Bishop (USA)

Your true friends forever,

As you know I was traveling alone because Pili was too busy worrying us all around being ill and having visa issues! Poor little sausage! But she insisted I go -
I really have to say I had a very brilliant time - relaxing, exhilarating - great company - fed extremely well and have no hesitation to all our 7 friends. I will see you next year.

Thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing week.
Thanos issued no orders, we only "needed" to do something, and learned a lot. We enjoyed the company of Thanos, Alicia and their young Polish friends. Fish was caught every day, adding to Alicia's excellent lunches!
I had dreamt of visiting Ithaca and was not disappointed. Hope to join you again some day.

Thanos and Alicia,

Brilliant week! We have loved the sailing and your company, it made for an excellent week. I'm sorry I didn't help much on the boat, next year I will be better. Good luck with the wedding, enjoy every minute.

Thank you.
What an incredible week - the winds were amazing, the views breathtaking, the 'treasures' and snorkeling were beyond compare. The food - what can we say!!!
This week has created memories to last forever!

Thanos and Alicja,

Thank you for a truly wonderful holiday with many great memories to take back with us. Apart from the sun, sailing and swimming, we will treasure the sound of Kate's panic stricken cries as the boat hardly heeled at all, Hannah's vision of a serrated hammer, Andrew's shower moment, Mark's attempts at fishing and Caroline's command of the Polish Language!
All this was made possible by Thanos' calm disposition (apart from 's**t, the wheel's broken!') and Alicja's sunny smile, great cooking and octopus impressions!!!

See you in Martinique in January,
Andrew, Caroline, Kate, Mark, Hannah (UK)

Dear Thanassis & Alicia,

Thank you both so much for this fantastic trip to the Ionian Islands!!
The islands, the water, the food, the wine and the company was just great! We hope that we have also brought something new to your lives; like the new places where we were that you have never explored before, the crazy Vikings hanging from a rope behind the boat -impressive that you didn't get a heart attack Thanassis :)
Thank you again very very much for this unforgettable holiday and great memories...

Thanos and Alicia,

Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience.
We have all enjoyed your generous hospitality and patience - we have never sailed before! Harry especially enjoyed heeling!! However he soon got used to it.
Thanos you are such an amazing sailor, so cool and calm. Alicia, what can we say - mermaid, excellent chef and sailor.
You are both very good teachers!

Best Wishes,
Georgina, Peter, Vicky, Harry, Tom (UK)

Great times sailing in the Greek Islands, thanks for putting up with all the Edges and for showing us the sights!

Dear Thanos and Alicja,

Yet again a wonderful week with more adventures - and this time proper Greek weather!
Thank you for all the wonderful experiences, yummy food, hospitality and Gin! Yet again thanks for sharing your beautiful area of the world with us. Looking forward to seeing you in the Caribbean!

Dear Thanos and Alicja,

As I write this I feel quite sad to be leaving, as does Ben.
This week with you both, on your beautiful yacht has been just simply 'Perfect'. We could not have asked for anything more. The sailing, swimming and evenings will stay fond memories - the NIGHT sail was magical and one we shall all never forget! The full moon, the music, the warm air, and the heeling! A sail the most experienced yachtsmen would be jealous of, I think!
Thank you both so very much for one of the best holidays we have ever had. (Don't work too hard next week!)
We look forward to your return visit to the UK asap! so you can enjoy our hospitality in sunny Tollesbury!

Lots of love,
Eve and Ben (UK)

Thanos and Alicja,

We have had the most amazing week, seen the most beautiful scenery and enjoyed the fabulous company. Thank you so much - you both work so hard. You two deserve to be sailing around these spectacular islands - or perhaps the Caribbean??

Thank you once again,
lots of love,
Oli and Vix (UK)
P. S. You must come and stay with us on your next visit to the UK!

Dear Alicia and Thanos,

I had been feeling rather scared at the prospect, but as soon as I met you both, that all fell away - I had a wonderful week, good company, marvelous scenery -seeing new places and ones I knew- Alicia's wonderful lunches. Best of all, your kindness and helpful friendship.
You are a great team.

Alicia and Thanos

Thank you so very much for a wonderful time sailing around the Ionian Islands. My regret is that I didn't try and learn more about sailing earlier in the week!
Congratulations on your engagement, you are a beautiful couple and make a great team. I loved everything about the holiday (except perhaps the loo!!)

Thank you both so much for an absolutely wonderful week aboard Alexandros. It has been fantastic to explore the Ionian Islands in such a magical way and we have greatly enjoyed your company and of course Alicja's cooking! Thank you for looking after us so well and sharing this special place with us on your fantastic yacht.
We would love to come back and will be sure to recommend you to everyone - but please keep a space for us! You would be very welcome to visit us if you are ever in the UK. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.

Very best wishes,

Thank you Alicia and Thanos for the most amazing holiday with you sailing the Ionian Seas, around these islands.
I have you to thank very much for a very pleasurable experience and introduction to Greece and those wonderful dishes prepared by Alicia!

Enjoy your future together.
