Dear Anastasiya & Antonis,

Big thanks for a wonderful vacation sailing together in the Saronic Gulf! Everything has been perfect and we have enjoyed it a lot from every single excellent dish (we have become lovers of Greek cuisine), from the sailing in this fantastic country, Greece. We wish you all the best in the future and in the winter break.

Big hugs & kisses,

This was the best trip ever!!!
Every port & every bay we stopped had a different vibe about it. I enjoyed every moment! Antonis & Anastasiya are gracious hosts and the food is simple yet delicious.
You walk in as strangers and come out being a friend. I loved my time spent with Anastasiya & Antonis’ stories.

I will never forget this trip!!!

My dear friends , how is it possible for the heart to be so full & so empty at the same time!? So wonderful to spend this short time with you lovely people. Transition is always difficult getting into the water, getting out of the water, now meeting you all and leaving. It would be lovely to think that we might meet again and I will look forward to it.

Love and prosperity to you all, live long be happy!

Corfu - Corfu, 9-16 August 2015
Αγαπητοί Αναστασία και Αντώνη,

Προσωπικά εγώ εκτίμησα το γεγονός ότι φτιάξατε φαγητά χωρίς φέτα και τζατζίκι. Αυτό για μένα(Βάλια), xάρηκα που γνώρισα τα δύο μεγαλύτερα νούμερα των θαλασσών επί 5 ηπείρων.
Η εμπειρία μας θα μείνει αξέχαστη , γι'αυτό είναι πολύ πιθανό να τα πούμε σε δύο βδομάδες - είναι απειλή.

Σας ευχαριστούμε για όλα.
Βάλια και Νίκος (Greece)

Corfu - Corfu, 2-9 August 2015

Antonis & Anastasia,
It was an absolute pleasure to spend the week sailing with you guys. You really made us feel at home and always made the extra effort to make us feel comfortable. I will speak fondly of my time aboard the yacht and will be recommending your cruise to friends and family.

Best wishes and see you again some time,

Dear Anastasia & Antonis,
Thank you all so much for making our time in Greece so lovely. Thank you most of all for your patience, kindness & smiles. Special thanks to Anastasia for amazing cooking (we will be needing that amazing cake recipe). Hope that you will have a nice relaxing break when you finish the season which is well deserved.

It was nice to meet such friendly people. Keep in touch and let us know if you are ever in England or Poland.

Dearest Anastasia & Antonis,

It's hard to come back to a holiday with such high expectations. But you guys were amazing. You not only met our lofty expectations, but surpassed them. Thank you kindly for taking care of us like family. I'll miss you and hope our paths cross again. Until then sail safe and stay in touch. Fair winds and following seas.

Arrivederci, Ciao Bello.

Ciao Antonis & Anastasiya

We cannot thank you enough for this week of unforgettable fun, new experiences, and most of all delicious food. You treated us like family and ensured we were as comfortable as could be. I hope the business expands and that you add more ships to the fleet. Don't change a thing and always keep a smile!

Let us know if you are ever in America!

To Anastasia & Antonis,

Thank you for an amazing holiday!
We all had such good fun and there has never been a dull or dry moment. My favorite part was either when we went spear fishing or being towed behind the boat and having to hold on really tight. I couldn't fault it. This holiday was as amazing as Anastasia’s cooking.

Thanks guys,
