Sailing the Greek islands reviews

sailing the greek isles reviews


Our sail through the Cyclades with Greek Water Yachts was perfection from beginning to end and I cannot recommend them highly enough. A few reasons why:

– throughout the planning process, Apostolos promptly answered all of my emails and my many questions so I felt at ease navigating a new adventure.
– our captain, Antonios, put us at ease from the first moment we stepped on the boat and became a good friend and expert guide for our week-long sail.
– the boat was in wonderful condition and exactly as expected.
– we charted our itinerary with the captain, ensuring we felt in control at all times. He expertly explained the pros and cons of suggested routes and then left the decision to us.
– Antonios knows all the special, local places to go and instinctively knew what we’d like, how much privacy we needed, and how to ensure our trip fit our needs.

I can’t say enough good things about the Greek Water Yachts experience.
