Spiros & Alex,
This trip was everything I imagined of course…and it wasonly so mazing because of the two of you. I wouldn’t have changed a thing.
Thank you for everything!
Spiros & Alex,
I can’t even begin to explain how amazing this trip hasbeen. It has beed the best vacation I have ever had and I couldn’t have dreamedof it being any better.
Alex was an amazing companion and the best cook I have everencountered. Spiros is an excellent sailor with an amazing reserve &patience in teaching the novices the basics of sailing. His knowledge of theislands was extensive and appreciated. I can’t wait to return and sail some newislands.
Thank you for everything! Memories of a lifetime!
For us traveling is all about the people we meet. We lovedthis trip. Loved the boat, the food and of course the islands. But the bestpart was the people we met. Alex and Spiros. They introduced the traditionalfoods for us. We got to try octopus and her famous spinach pie. She made themost special birthday cake for a birthday celebration. Everything was amazing.Spiros shared all his knowledge of the history of the islands, his favoritespots to visit and his philosophy on life. We call him ‘’inspirosing’’. We hadsuch a good time will never forget this wonderful trip.
Thanks do much!
We had an absolutely fantastic time! Spiros you are thekindest and most generous host and the best sailor ever!
Gregoria we have written down many of your recipes I can’twait to attempt to replicate them.
Thank you for all your kindness and hard work! Thank you formaking our holidays memorable!
Thank you for the great sail and the beautiful boat andparticular to crew Spiros and Christina.
Ciao from Italy!
|George and Alex, |
This has been my 21st chartered Catamaran boat. I have visited Greece prior in 2012 and once again I feel I have had a wonderful exciting experience. The Buena Suerte is was well equipped, well cared for and I felt special and well treated. The food was terrific, our wine and spirits were terrific and George was a very experiences skipper. Please know I enjoyed this experience and trip and thank you George and Alex for a wonderful time. Love, Carlene
George and Alexandra,
I have spent 50 years of my life racing and cruising sailboats all over the world. I was a sailmaker and professional sailboat racer for much of that time. I can say I have never felt more comfortable and safer than the week I have spent with you on Buena Suerte. The weather did not always cooperate but the Captain, George only cared for our safety and well-being. Both George and Alex were wonderful to share our trip with and provided a wealth of knowledge about Greece and the Greek Islands. The boat is very well equipped, well maintained and was clean and well prepared for our trip. The provisioning was well planned and Alex did everything is her power to provide excellent meals and meet our needs. The only thing that could have been better would require “mother nature” to offer a bit better weather but we know we can’t control mother nature. I would recommend a vacation on Buena Suerte with George and Alex to anyone!!! Smooth Sailing… -Jim
Dear George and Alex,
Thank you both for the wonderful week. George… you are an amazing Captain. You have a calm and quiet demeanor. Thank you for always watching out for our safety. It felt good to know you were always watching out for us. I think you have found your calling, you are a natural at helping people to really enjoy their holiday. Alex… you a gem. You so kind and loving and so easy to be with. Your meals were spectacular and we always felt very happy. It was a pleasure to spend time with both of you. We wish you all the best and hope to meet up with both of you sometime in our future. Love and best wishes, Steve and Patty. YAMAS!

|Thanks to Captain George and super cook Alexandra. Our first cruise in Greece is a great success, the four children enjoyed the whole trip as much as we did. We highly appreciated the excellent cooking of Alexandra and will be challenging to be back in Paros trying to repeat recipes. Thank you to George and all his sea abilities, the catamaran, the dinghy, the stand up paddle, sailing and fishing. |
Buena Suerte, excellent name for a wonderful souvenir sailing in the Ionians. Best Regards, All the Parquets

|Thank you for an amazing trip around Corfu. We had the most relaxing trip, thanks to you George and Lucia. We loved every beach and cove we visited. You gave us a taste of the magic part of the world and we hope to come back some day to explore more. The sailing was really fun when we had the opportunity. Lucia, the food was incredible! Thank you for nourishing us with your delicious homemade preparations. Thank you for also making excellent gin & tonics! Overall, we are sad to say goodbye but we are taking so many fond memories with us. George, we will never forget your impressive skills parking the boat into the smallest spots. We hope you both have a fantastic rest of your summer and we are so glad to have met you and to have experience this place with you! |

Thank you guys so much for such an amazing trip. You showed us the beauty of the Greek Islands and I’d love to come back. George thanks for being an amazing captain and taking us around in the dinghy. Alex, thanks for cooking and cleaning, I know our room was dirty! You’re a talented cook! Love, Julien
