A wonderful week of sailing with a great crew. Thank you Christos and Demetra for your kindness and hospitality, you are amazing. Great ports, loved the sailing (and food!). Will always remember our adventures with you.

Kassie and Vince H. (Australia)

Piraeus - Piraeus, 29 September - 6 October 2019

What a trip we had! It exceeded our expectations and we leave the boat filled with beautiful memories to last us through the winter. Every detail was well thought out and we always felt safe and taken care of. Constantina is a gem, her personality shines and she is incredibly hard working and thoughtful. Thanos, it was a pleasure to sail with you.

Happy travels,
Maria M. and Stelios S. (Ringwood, NJ, USA)

Lefkas - Piraeus, 22-29 September 2019

Thank you for an amazing week aboard your beautiful sailboat, Mythos. This was our 1st sailboating adventure and it was as wonderful as Skip and Tammy said it would be! Constantina, you did outstanding as a hostess and I’m thrilled to be part of your first week! Thank you for all your delicious meals and making us feel so welcome.

Thanos, thank you for taking the time to show us the routes, the maps, and sharing information about all the villages we docked in. It was a fantastic trip!

We’d love to sail with you again! :)
Susan and Jim M. (Virginia, USA)

P.S. … and thank you, thank you for all the coke zero and the air conditioning!!! :)

Lefkas - Piraeus, 22-29 September 2019

Third time is a charm and third trip makes a tradition! I’m sure we will keep coming back to explore Greece with you from now on as often as we can. It was a wonderful week and we thank you for continuing to exceed our expectations.

Thanos, we value our friendship with you and Alicia and have enjoyed getting to know Nicolas and Georgia. Thank you Alicia for bringing the children out to join us for two days. That made our trip even more special. Konstantina, your first cruise as hostess was a big success in our book. We appreciate all of your hard work, especially the wonderful meals you provided us.

The end of your cruising season is approaching and all of the Anko Yachting team deserve rest and relaxation in the coming months.

We hope to see you again soon and wish everyone the very best!
Skip and Tammy P. (Atlanta, Georgia, USA)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 15-22 September 2019

Thank you so much for a wonderful week of sailing the Greek Islands. Truly a once in a lifetime trip, although we’d love to make it more than once!! The food was incredible, we loved it all! Thank you for your hospitality.

We loved our time in Greece!
Jim and Joan H. (Victoria, BC, Canada)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 15-22 September 2019

Bucket list trip… Thanks to Christos and Dimitra for everything. Especially special were the daily briefings from Dimitra… very interesting!!

Loved the Ionian Islands. Swimming and snorkelling were great. The weather was perfect and the food was outstanding. Learned a lot of Greek words throughout the trip.

Many thanks,
James and Teresa M. (Canada)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 15-22 September 2019

Damn, its over! Thanks for the chances to take the helm.
Assistant Captain- Terry P. (Canada)

Thank you for being such great hosts and putting up with our attempts to speak a few words in Greek - even though I am sure we said ‘squid’ instead of ‘kalimera’ every morning to you! Loved the trip, relaxing, swimming and eating Dimitra’s wonderful food!! Lucky you to live in such a beautiful place.
Hope our paths meet again soon,
Roberta P. (Canada)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 8-15 September 2019
Christos and Dimitra,

Well... We asked for entertainment… and you soooo delivered. Indescribable! Beautiful! Groundhog Day (in a VERY good way)! Exquisite cuisine (10 star)! Patient! Felt like Family! Visually stunning!
Your professionalism and expertise made us feel comfortable and relaxed at all times. For some it was our first sailing experience and for others nostalgic. And we all concur, we will do this again.

Dear Thanos, Christos and Dimitra

What an amazing trip we had, from start to finish we have enjoyed every moment. The wonderful ports that Christos has shown us, the delicious food we have been prepared each day, it has exceeded our expectations.

We will be back!!!!!

Lefkas - Lefkas, 25 August - 1 September 2019

When you cannot remember what day of the week it is, it’s a great vacation! On a sailing vacation,
one hopes for wind of course, but with Christos and Dimitra we did not miss it, not having wind.
You are a superb team and wonderful hosts and now, friends!

We thank you for an amazing time. We wish you both the best and hope to see you again.

Happy birthday Christos!
Tim and Julie G. (USA)

Dear Thanos, Christos & Dimitra,

Thank you very much for an amazing trip. We absolutely loved sailing the Ionian and exploring the beautiful islands, beaches and sites but most importantly, we enjoyed your hospitality, thank you. Best of luck and success with your ventures. Hope to see you again for the next sailing trip.

Sebastian T. and Gina V. (Sydney, Australia)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 11-18 August 2019

We had a wonderful relaxing holiday sailing to enjoyable locations. The highlights were the daily swims in warm crystal waters. It was also very good to meet new people and to share stories with them. Mythos is a very comfortable yacht and we greatly enjoyed our time on board.

Many thanks for a very pleasant holiday.
Peter and Stella B. (Perth, Australia)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 11-25 August 2019

Cloudless blue skies, warm blue seas. Calm bays for swimming. Picturesque harbours for the nights. Good company. Good food. Good wine. We had it all.

Thank you Thanos, thank you Christos and Dimitra. We missed you Alicia… Perhaps another time

John and Monique C. (Switzerland)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 11-18 August 2019

We had a fantastic week on the Mythos II. Couldn’t have spent a better time on the Ionian Islands! Thank you for a wonderful time and a great honeymoon! We will be seeing you again!

Ashley B. & Dan C. (Philadelphia, USA)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 4-11 August 2019

We had a fantastic week with Thanos in the Ionian Islands. It was super nice to meet your family. Your kids are already true sailors and your wife has a story to tell! We loved being looked after so well, explore your secret beaches and staying at the ports you took us.

Thanks to Nikolina we had the most amazing food, a special cocktail every day and a fin engine for the tender boat. Thank you for an amazing week and having us on board.

Patricia M. and Greg H. (UK)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 4-11 August 2019

Ήταν μια υπέροχη, διαφορετική εμπειρία αυτή η εβδομάδα στα νησιά του Ιονίου. Κολυμπήσαμε σε υπέροχες παραλίες, υπέροχα μέρη και φάγαμε υπέροχα φαγητά. Ευχαριστώ πολύ Νικολίνα και Αλίτσια για τις υπέροχες και πεντανόστιμες συνταγές. Ευχαριστώ πολύ και τον καπετάνιο Θάνο για την υπέροχη εμπειρία, τα φοβερά μέρη στα οποία μας πήγε, τις φανταστικές ιστορίες και την εμπειρία του sailing.

Οι καλύτερες διακοπές μου!!

Με αγάπη,
Λένα K. (Greece)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 28 July - 4 August 2019
Hello Thanos,

I can’t believe we’ve been back home now nearly a week. I just wanted to let you know we had an absolutely amazing holiday and can’t wait to definitely do it again!

Loved being on the boat especially when Christos put the sails up. It’s a shame we couldn’t do a little more actual sailing as it was so beautiful.

Christos was the perfect captain and made us feel so welcome. He’s so kind but also so funny. He is a credit to your company and I hope he’s around next time we book! (That’s if he will have us!). It was lovely having his family around too.

Dimitra is also a great asset to your company. Her cooking is fabulous and we were so well looked after. We took her advice at every port except for one and she was spot on.
We met up with Petros’ boat on the last day and the children had fun on his stand up paddle boards. It would have been fun perhaps if our boat could have had some.

Loved seeing the Greek Islands and especially loved Fiscardo. Also really enjoyed all the wonderful Greek cuisine. Please keep your business running as we want to come back! Keep happy and enjoy your little son.

Kind regards,
Julia, Simon, George and Holly S. (UK)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 21-28 July 2019

From the first contact via the website through to the end of the holiday, our Anko Yachting experience has been smooth, professional and such good fun. Christos, our skipper, is an incredibly competent seaman who looks after the yacht as if it is his own and genuinely cares for his guests.

Likewise Dimitra is an exceptional host who everyday has cooked us the most delicious meals and pleased us all with cocktails. Thank you so much for the cheesecake you made for Sue’s birthday. Christos is the above ok? :) I think I’ve remembered to write everything you told me to!!! :))

Ok, here’s the rest of the review… The Ionian Sea does not have much fish in it! We’ve tried many rods, lines and even spear guns. After a week all we managed to catch was a seagull who took the lure trailing behind the boat!

The Ionian Sea though has had a lot of me in it this week - I’ve lost count of the number of times our skipper has thrown me in! We have had such a fun week where laughter has been the key component throughout.

Highlight was spending a night in a bay and then swimming to church in the morning (ok so maybe I didn’t actually swim as I had to row the support vehicle but I would have dived in if necessary - honest!). Drinking the boat dry of beer was an achievement but, hey, there were two English blokes on board!

As we leave, we take with us such fun memories of a week in a beautiful part of the world, great food, great laughs and an all-round great experience.

Christos and Dimitra thank you, you’re amazing!!
Simon, Sue, Zak, and Katie W. (UK)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 14-21 July 2019

Thank you so much! That was the best vacation! It was our first experience, so we loved it really, really much!

Hostess (Dimitra) and captain (Christos) were more than amazing and professionals! All the places that we visited were unique and it was really nice to explore them! - Great food - adventure - great landscape - great company - sailing - five things you need for a great vacation!

Thank you Anko Yachting!
Penny and Andrew F. (Greece)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 14-21 July 2019

Our second voyage has been just as wonderful as the first! Thank you Christos and Dimitra for such a fun and amazing week! The food was excellent, the drinks were great and the ‘harbour drama’ was so entertaining! We loved every minute of our cruise! Good times, great company - ‘claro Kasey’! Until next time…

The M. family, Tom, Judy and Kasey (Indiana, USA)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 7-14 July 2019

Thank you so much for hosting us! For five sailors and our family, we are a loud, diverse crew. I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say this is the best cruise any of us have been on in our naval careers.

From the variety of food at lunch to the afternoon drinks to sharing in our fun. Everything was spectacular and exceeded expectations.

Thank you again for a wonderful time.
Katie D. (USA)

Lefkas - Lefkas, 7-14 July 2019

Dimitra and her deckhand Christos were a blast to hang around with. I wish this cruise would last forever; just felt like hanging out and having a good time with old friends and family. Even Nikolina from the S/Y Malena became likefamily to us.

Thank you very much for being such amazing hosts. From the amazing food to the smooth sailing, I think I spent more time sleeping and laughing to last me a lifetime. In all seriousness thank you for the memorable experience in the Ionian Sea. I look forward to sailing again with you very soon.

Ευχαριστώ πολύ. Φίλοι για πάντα.

Dear Thanos, Dimitra and ‘deckhand’ Christos

We had a wonderful week with you guys. It was like hanging around withfriends. From Andrew and Christos spearfishing (and the hilarious loss of the spear!), to Thanos ‘special’ alcoholic drinks at night time on the sunbed under the stars, to Dimitra and the ‘spider in the sink’ and the paddling around on the highjacked paddleboard from Malena. What a week we’ve had!

Thank you so much! We’ve had a blast!
Much love, Andrew H. and Gemma L. (Albany, Western Australia)

P.S. Come visit anytime - you are more than welcome :)

Piraeus - Lefkas, 16-23 June 2019

Thank you Thanos and Dimitra for a most fantastic and memorable week on the S/Y Mythos. We take home wonderful memories of glorious scenery, delicious food, very good company, sunshine all the day, crystal clear waters to swim and snorkel and the excitement of a different island and village each evening.

A fabulous week.
Cecily and Philip M. (Israel)

Piraeus - Lefkas, 16-23 June 2019

Thanos and Dimitra, thank you for your hospitality and professionalism. Everything was perfect, Iza and I enjoyed immensely this cruise.

Piraeus - Lefkas, 16-23 June 2019
Dear Thanos and Dimitra,

Thank you very much for a wonderful week. This was beyond all expectations and an incredible way to see the Greek Islands in great company, with superb food and a very professional crew that at the same time gave you a sense of belonging to the family. Also thanks a lot to Alicia for the wonderful recipes and for ‘sharing’ Thanos with us this week.

Francois F. and Kara G. (Switzerland)

Piraeus - Piraeus, 9-16 June 2019

My first trip to the Greek Islands. A fabulous experience of squid, pork chops, chips and soooo many cats!!

Many thanks to our crew Christos and Dimitra. A great job taking us around the Saronic Sea / Islands, Bravo!!

See you again some day, some where,

Piraeus - Piraeus, 9-16 June 2019

This was our second trip with Anko Yachting and like the last time we had a wonderful experience. Christos and Dimitra were an exceptional crew and the places we visited made our trip memorable. Dimitra’s cooking was something else.

Σας ευχαριστούμε για όλα, να είστε πάντα καλά.
Sofia and Peter M. (Australia)

Piraeus - Piraeus, 2-9 June 2019

What a memorable week! From the first communication with Thanos to the last day, we had a wonderful holiday. The enthusiasm of Christos to the amazing cooking and kindness of Nikolina made the trip perfect. We had so many laughs about ‘shade’, ‘being excited’, about so many things, ‘watching the phone’, ‘cold showers’ and ‘hearing the people in next room’.

It was like a great family vacation. Thanks to Nikolina for outstanding meals and to Christos for the very safe and quality sailing. He knows his stuff.

Marc, Sheila and Brie C. (Canada)

Piraeus - Piraeus, 26 May - 2 June 2019

They are all very nice, kind, friendly and heartwarming people. Nikolina made very yammy food for us and Christos was a very good captain, who was willing to do what he could to make us feel at home. Although Sam is not a part of the crew she made a lot of very good drinks and made some good company to talk to.

Thank you!
Ella C. (Ohio, USA)

Piraeus - Piraeus, 26 May - 2 June 2019

A heartful thanks for such a delightful holiday. This was our first time sailing. I have to say I was not sure what to expect. That said my expectations were exceeded. The yacht, the food, accommodations, experiences. The team made our time at sea one of the most memorable vacations we have taken.

I can’t thank Christos and Nikolina enough for their professionalism, friendliness, support and overall kindness. Christos is a true captain and a great leader. Nikolina is not only an awesome chef, but she also provided such great information on and off the islands. My friends at home have heard all about our experience and I would 100% recommend they book a charter.

We will be back and will look forward to sail the seas with Christos and Nikolina once again.

Kathy C. (Ohio, USA)

Piraeus - Piraeus, 19-26 May 2019
