Feedback from clients who sailed with us in 2018
Lucio from Italy chartered s/y Kalydna, Bavaria 39 cruiser, from Athens, in January 2018.
Our trip was really good, and everything up to our expectations -- we had a really pleasant time. Martin and Liz in the Maluma do a really god job. It was just a pity that we couldn't get to Santorini.
We aould recommend this to any saling-lover friend.
Back home safely I'd like to thank you very much for your hospitality, for your time and attention paid to our trip !
The memories of our yourney will be reverberating further on for weeks and months...
Let's hope, another trip will be in the cards for September !
With best regards and hugs for you, Francesca, for Panagiotis and all the family,
Antonio and friends joined the Cyclades Share a Sail cruise from Mykonos in April / May.

Mrs Williams chartered a Beneteau Oceanis 48 from Lefkas in September
Mr Charbonneau and family chartered a LAGOON 380 with skipper GIANNIS MICHAS in June
We are home from our trip and wanted to give some feedback. We had a great time!
The boat is beautiful and very comfortable.
Our skipper, Spiro, did a great job and was very easy to have in our midst. After watching many boats dock in busy, windy ports, we appreciated his skill all the more. We told him what experiences we are looking for and let him pick the itinerary. We were happy with his choices and felt his local knowledge was invaluable. We hope we made him feel like one of the group.
We really appreciated your quick responses to questions and making cab arrangements.The other travel arrangements you made for us were great!! Cab drivers pleasant and professional. For our return trip to the airport, the boat owner suddenly appeared to make sure we connected with our cab. What great service!
We didn’t sail as much as I would have liked. But, I realize it was a function of wind speed, direction and distance traveled.
Thanks for a great vacation!!

Below you can find the review of Massimo MORINI about his booking Sun Odyssey 440 - Volos - 11/08/2018 - 25/08/2018
Global Rating: 4/5 (Very Good)
Vacanza indimenticabile in isole e paesi non troppo battuti dal turismo di massa. Paesi modesti ma circondati da mare meraviglioso e boschi o pinete lussureggianti. Costi abordabili e sicuramente inferiori rispetto alle isole più blasonate.
- Welcome : 4/5 (Very Good)
- Boat : 5/5 (Excellent)
- Quality/Price : 4/5 (Very Good)

I want to thank you for the service you have provided to this client and I hope this information will be helpful for you.
We had a week with Patrik (and Anastasia) during September 2018. I can honestly say it was the best holiday I have ever had. With the feeling of complete freedom and having nowhere to be at no particular time it was the best way to relax and unwind. We went into the week with a vague plan of what we wanted to see and do but with a healthy sense of adventure and spontaneity. We were able to visit places that were even more beautiful and idyllic than we ever imagined and even a couple of spots that were new to Patrik as well. I cannot wait to come back to Greece and see what we discover next time!
David and friends chartered s/y Anastasia, with skipper Patrik, from Mykonos in September.
Thanks for your email,
Yes sorry I completely forgot to advise you that we were returning on boat early as we did last year, my fault,
Everything went very well thanks, no problems what so ever, we got the good part of the weather thankfully, little bit of uncomfortable sailing on the Tuesday and Wednesday due to the winds but that cant be avoided the only thing we cant control is the weather !
Overall very happy, and I think I will be returning again next year,
Thanks again for all your help,

We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would consider doing it again.
Mr Lazaro chartered a Lagoon 380 catamaran (Stardust) from Preveza with Skipper, in June.
Yes, we had a great time during our sailing vacation. Everything was o.k., no problems at all.
Taking the boat and giving back was perfect thanks to Dimitris, so we were very much satisfied.
Thanks a lot for your support and for the flexible changing of the initial boat with a bigger one!
We are definitely thinking of repeating this Sporades experience, so I will contact you again in the future.
Mr Matev chartered s/y Anax, Sun Odyssey 49, from Volos in June.
Hi Francesca, just a quick e mail to let you know we had an absolutely brilliant holiday on Footprints, everything was well organised and the skipper was fantastic. We covered a lot of islands given the fact that we only went for a week. We are going to plan another holiday visiting the other holidays in 2020. Thanks for all your help, it’s much appreciated.
Keep well and we’ll be in touch next year.
Yes, we are back and all the richer for the experience of last week.
I will post some photos and (positive) feedback on the website.
Thanks again, and yes, we will be back, sure!
Elias chartered s/y Poseidonia, a Bavaria 40 cruiser from Athens in June, with skipper.

Peter chartered s/y Enjoy, Lagoon 421 catamaran, in June, from Lefkas.
The holydays went well as usually in Greece.
So was good the boat and the welcome on site.
Unfortunately the weather did not assist us as the lasts years....but hey!
Me and the crew wish to thank you and Stephanos for everything hoping to do it again very soon.
Thanks and ciao

We loved our time on the boat in early June. Our skipper and chef were perfect and it could not have been better!
Victoria and friends chartered s/y Bibendium, Lagoon 450 catamaran from Lavrion in June.
It went quite well and objectives were well achieved. My learning spiked significantly and I got the Day Skipper Licence which was great.
I'll definitely be getting in touch for my next foray in the region.
Thanks so much.
Daniel did a mile builder and RYA Day Skipper course from Poros in June.
We are sailing around on Cassopea and having a great time. Boat is in terrific shape (nearly new) and things are going well so far.
----- Later -----
In short, our sailing holiday was fantastic. Working with you to secure the boat and the extras we wanted was very easy, and you were helpful at each step of the way. This was especially important to us on this trip since it was our first time chartering in Europe.
We can’t say enough good things about the boat, which was in fabulous shape, or the base managers, and Constantin, who were extremely helpful. As partners in a Caribbean charter business with very high standards we were very impressed at the operation Constantin and his team run. The boat was very well outfitted and well prepared for charter guests.
Our only complaint is that being spoiled Americans :-) we would have liked a generator and AC on the boat, especially given the heat.
Many thanks for your help,
Phillip and family chartered s/y Cassopea, Lucia 40 catamaran from Athens in August.
Apart from a load of damp smelly washing for me, all went fantastically!
They had a ball and really enjoyed the company of the flotilla - they had a great crowd
They won a prize for best entertainment doing flossing so that about sums it up!
I ask them to send photos
They are keen to go again but we will have to discuss but I will come back to you when
they decide as we were very happy with everything you organised
Thanks so much
Shirley's partner Alan and his friends joined the Ionian flotilla from Lefkas and chartered a Bavaria 37 cruiser.
Thanks again for the rental and helping us organize this amazing week we had. We want to do it again next year with your biggest catamaran.
We did not get the invoice-receipt from the base manager, could you please ask him for us?
Xavier and friends chartered s/y Orestis, Bavaria 47 cruiser, from Rhodes in August, with skipper.
The holiday was fantastic and I am happy to complete your 'Feedback Form' on both of the condition of the boat and the service provided by your team. Please supply an electronic copy. I do have some photos which you may be interested in.
Also, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your whole team for a great week. Particularly Constantine who always available to assist when needed. We look forwards to seeing you again either next season of the season after.

Good to meet you in person this week and thanks for organising such a good charter. Please also pass on our thanks to Joanna and Demetrios (I hope I have his name correct). - a very well presented yacht and all very friendly and efficient.
Feed back attached. I have not yet heard from Joanna to confirm that she has seen the sails and organised for my deposit to be returned but there should be no issue on this.

I have just returned from a great bareboat charter holiday in the Sporiades organised through Francesca at Odyssey Sailing. I would definitely use this company again and have no doubts about recommending them wholeheartedly to anyone chartering in this area; or anywhere else that they cover.
During the booking process, Francesca always answered promptly with reliable information and a thorough understanding of any technical or local issues. I felt in very safe hands for all aspects of the booking.
Odyssey Sailing organised a Bavaria Cruiser 46 from Joanna and her team / family. I have been chartering in the med for many years now, including this model of Bavaria on several occasions. This yacht (s/y NOTUS) was in immaculate condition, especially taking into account that it is a 2007 yacht. Joanna gave the best briefing and handover I have had from any charterer. It was also well priced.
A 5 star performance from Odyssey and from Joanna and the NOTUS team.
Many thanks to you all.
Mr Scruby and friends chartered s/y Notus, Bavaria 46 Cruiser from Volos in July
Mr Butler and family chartered s/y Idroussa, Oceanis 45 from Athens in July, with skipper Dimitris Giannoulis and his wife Matina as hostess.

Ms Colangelo-Brito chartered s/y Seeker, Lagoon 400s2 catamaran, with skipper Stelios Zisiadis.
Mr Furniss and family chartered s/y Sophia Sun Odyssey 33 for 4 weeks in July-August from Volos.
We had a wonderful time on the our sailing trip in Greece. Everything worked out just perfect; Thanos and Dimitria were wonderful and gracious hosts and took very good care of us. The boat was in mint condition and the service on board excellent.
Thanos maneuvered the yacht with so must expertise that no matter how tight the spot on the dock was, he always managed. He also knew all the wonderful spots for swimming, the nice little harbors to spend the night.
We could not have wished for a nice week. The only thing missing was the wind; there could have been more sailing for our taste. But unfortunately there were only short moments where there was enough wind to set sails.
But who knows, next time we might be luckier in this regard.
I will forward a few photos from our trip to place on your web album.
Thank you very much and we would love to spend another sailing vacation with Odyssey Sailing.
Susanne and Thomas
The sailing was very nice and the crew very young and capable .
The captain kept us safe every day in a different harbour with a master skills to park on tiny spots.
The vessel is small as you mentioned before which I recommend one cabin for a single person or 2 kids.
I will recommend the trip to anyone our hostess was sweetheart.
Thanks for all and I might come back to do the North Ionian islands with you as soon as I can .
Maria Alpert & Alessandra
Susanne and Thomas sailed on s/y Velos as part of a cabin charter with other guests plus crew, in the ionian island in September.
Maria and Alessandra sailing on s/y Alexandros as part of a cabin charter on the same route / dates.
Yes we had a great time. Unfortunately it was fairly calm most days so only managed to sail a few hours each day. The yacht was good and the flotilla size was perfect. Pericles the flotilla skipper was attentive but he did not know the port areas very well as he had only been there a few weeks. We both enjoyed it a lot and were thinking of doing the Sporades with you next year.
