The Queen of Hearts was a wonderful boat and just what website pictures had shown. Staterooms were comfortable and heads with showers for each stateroom was great. Lots of areas on deck for separate lounging spaces.
Once we (parents, three adult kids and boyfriends/girlfriends) decided to try to charter a captained yacht in Greece, the task of choosing a company we felt we could trust was daunting! But Yachtsailing.gr kept popping up in our research. Great, detailed website…TripAdvisor info, ratings and reviews…and finally a phone conversation with Eugene had us feeling comfortable.
All of our contacts during the choosing and reserving of a boat, provisioning, arranging airport transport, just confirmed that we’d made the right choice. All these folks were friendly, experienced and so easy to work with.
But a great boat is nothing without a great captain and crew. Our Captain Vasilis and Hostess/Mate Maria were just the best.
Vasilis, from our initial handshake and discussions about the weather being favorable for the Cyclades, was a great communicator and always wanted our feedback. This continued for the whole trip as every day we discussed plans/options for the day with stops for lunch and swimming…the cove in Kimolos!…And always great recommendations for dinners! Perfect guy for this job!
And Maria was always taking such good care of us! From the first taste of coffee in the morning, through varied delicious breakfasts, both cold and hot lunches, snacks(!) in the afternoon, and a couple of unexpected dinners when we were anchored at a cove for the night… it was wonderful. And she was always smiling and gracious!
Both Vasilis and Maria made us feel like friends and that is a luxury that is so hard to find! This was the best family vacation we’ve ever had and as wonderful as the places we visited were, our family enjoyed each other even more. Thanks Vasilis and Maria!
We had an amazing week, sailing the Argolic and Saronic Gulfs on The Queen of Hearts. Our captain, Vasilis, was able to get us where we wanted to go and made sure that we would have an experience of a lifetime. Not only did he captain the boat, but he was always two steps ahead of us and had everything arranged, everywhere we went. He definitely went above and beyond and I would highly recommend him as a skipper. On this trip we mostly rock climbed in Leonidio and Kyparissi, but were able to squeeze in many other activities. We went scuba diving, snorkeling, paddle boarding, hiking, biked around Spetses and explored a sea cave, and took in countless breathtaking views!!
Our extended family (8 of us aged 6 to 75) spent a wonderful week sailing the Saronic Islands with Spiros. The boat was spacious enough for us all to feel comfortable, Spiros got the right balance of sailing and giving us time in the water for swimming and paddle boarding. We visited popular islands and small coves, ate great food and had a lot of fun. An incident was dealt with effectively by Spiros, Alex and the Yacht Sailing team, meaning something that could have ruined our holiday was just a small blip. One thing I didn’t realise before the trip was how early you have to get into some ports to secure a spot, which does limit the time you can sail (vs cruise/motor) if you are keen to visit specific islands. I’d love to go again when it’s a bit quieter and spend more time sailing properly without the engine. I’d definitely recommend having a skipper as Spiros magicked up spots for us everywhere we wanted to go (although he couldn’t quite believe we turned down the Hydra spot as we wanted to go paddle boarding instead!). The weather was perfect and we had an amazing time. Would recommend Yacht Sailing to anyone looking to charter a boat from Athens and already planning a trip with friends and without the kids 😀
We were matched with an amazing skipper (Spiros) who we cannot recommend more highly!! We knew he was tasked with sailing us safely from island to island but he went above and beyond at each stop by making us restaurant reservations and renting us cars to pop around at each island. We couldn't get over how professional, patient, kind and accommodating he was. No matter what island we went to or what weather we experienced, Spiros was able to communicate our daily options and prioritize our safely and fun.
Spiros is now our 'life skipper,' and we cannot wait to travel with yachtsailing.gr again. It is easy to call this a trip of a life time and we are committed to recreating this trip for years to come.
Let me start off by saying this was by far the best week I’ve ever experienced. I spent 3 weeks in Europe and 9 of those days were spent in Athens and then with Yacht Sailing on a week long adventure.
I don’t even know where to begin but I will start with the crew, Vasillis and
Aliki. They went above and beyond on our journey to make sure everything was spectacular.
I made some of the best memories of a lifetime that I will never forget. The way Vasillis handled everything was so great and Aliki made sure everyone was happy at all times. The food on the boat was some of my favorite parts and she catered to everyone’s likings and everything was phenomenal, especially her lamb chops the last day woooow.
I will be back with these guys and wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else. Vasillis was not only the best captain at the end he turned into one of my true good friends I made in Greece and my time in Europe. As well as Aliki, I looked at her as another best friend that was so kind and phenomenal. To Vasillis and Aliki thank you so much, I hope to see you guys either here in the mountains or back on the boat. Yamas!
Wonderful week with very smart captain: great saling with safety as the first starting point. Amazing places and a lot of fun !
Our family had a great trip exploring the Cyclades islands. The boat was extremely comfortable, the crew was very responsive and attentive to ensure it was a trip to remember for every member our family. Our skipper, Vasilis, was very professional and made our family feel safe. He recommended great restaurants at each of the islands and anchored in beautiful spots each night. It was a great experience. We look forward to sailing again with yachtsailing.gr. We highly recommend both this company and Skipper Vasilis.
