Dear Alex and Konstantina, 
Thank you both so much for taking on the care of the “Command Vessel” for our fleet of 5 catamarans causing a bunch of crazy swimmers from the US. Although the winds kicked up during our final 3 days, securing in a long, bumpy ride home, we appreciated your flexibility in getting us down to Santorini, with refreshing swim stops and visits to other beautiful islands and villages along the way. It was particularly enjoyable experiencing Konstantina’s Greek cuisine which really rounded out our entire experience. I am also walking away armed with the knowledge and input you provided to plan a return visit –there is so much to see!!! All the best and wishing you plenty of smooth sailing ahead! –Paula, San Diego, CA, USA

Alex and Konstantina, 
What a wonderful week we have had with you! You made everything special. Out meals were so delicious and unique to Greece. We loved that. And all your great advise of where to go and what to do. And helping us get transportation. And for maneuvering this boat in and out of every port, slip and pier. We felt safe at all time! Thank you so much and God bless you both! –Kim and Randy
PS. Alex thank you for letting me drive the boat especially through the narrow channels. Konstantina your ouzo milkshakes are the best –Randy 
Thank you for making our vacation so wonderful. Great food and travel. First time in the islands and loved every minute. You two made our trip! –Chris and Kelly

 August - September 2015
Dear Alex and Konstantina, 
It was all too perfect. In fact our only complaint was that it was just too perfect. The full moon over Poros too bright, too beautiful. The sunset drinks in Hydra too perfectly timed. The streets of Spetses and Sifnos too charming. The meltemi winds as we crossed over to the Cyclades too wild and wonderful. Each little cove and bay you found for us around Polyaigos and Kimolos too utterly sublime –each more beautiful than the next. The food –far far too delicious! And now we must go back. But our lives are fuller and more complete for this wonderful week we have spent in your gracious company. Thank you, thank you, thank you! –Patricia and David Vos

August 2015
Dear Alex and Konstantina, 
Thank you for a wonderful week. We really enjoyed our time in the Cyclades and the Peloponnese. The food was fabulous and we loved the many great family moments along the way. –Jane, Jenna, James, Fergal, Hugo, Jack

 August 2015
Dear Konstantina and Alex, 
We had a wonderful week aboard Idea! We started in Paros where we has to stay for a while waiting for the missing luggage. Alex showed us the most beautiful spots to swim and sailed us to the western Cyclades and then to the Saronic Islands. The children enjoyed the watersports very much. And every day we ate like Queens and Kings. Konstantina cooked all the delicious Greek dishes for us and really spoiled us. The dakos, pasticcio, fish, mussels, prawns, different salads and and and…! Not to forget the Mojito! Thank you to the both of you for an unforgettable week! You are great hostess and captain! We felt very much like home. –Bignia, Laurin, Lavinia, Norina

 August 2015
Thank you for such a spectacular week at sea! The kindness and knowledge you showed was simply amazing and we felt like Kings and Queens! I especially want to thank you both for your patience and love toward Sophia –a very excited 4 year old. You have helped us make memories of a lifetime and we can’t thank you enough! With sincere appreciation, Jennifer, Alexander and Sophia 

Alexandros & Konstantina, 
Early in April of this year my brother Alec sail “Let’s go sailing in Greece”. He and his wife Jennifer and daughter Sophia invited us to go with them and I excitedly agreed. We has many missteps in the planning, at times it felt it was not to be. Finally, our two families met at the boat and the adventure ensued. We swam, we sailed, we ate and drank and laughed. None of us had ever had a trip like this before, where we were pampered and catered to so well. Konstantina when you set the table the first night, we began to understand what we were in for –some amazing food and an exceptional dining experience. Alex, from the first day when you made adjustments and arrangements to meet our luggage, we knew we were in capable hands. Highlights: Massive servings of pastitsio, watching Liam eat fish eyes, watching Sophia drive the boats, watching Alex be sweet with Sophia, fire dancers in Naoussa, sleeping on deck during the Perseid meteor shower, boating into a cave… Efxaristo poli for a fantastic week! –Amy, Mark, Liam and Brenna

 August 2015

Konstantina (Cony), Alex, we have spent a fantastic week, we enjoy very much this fantastic country, so thank you very much for all your kind attentions. We will never forget these fantastic, amazing moments. From Chile and Spain with love, Urruticoechea Family

 July 2015
Thank you Konstantina & Alex for a great 2 weeks. The seamanship and cuisine were superb. Highlights for us were the mooring in Hydra, the rescue of the anchor, infact of many onlookers, the amazing cuisine and Konstantina’s eternal smile. Other great successes enjoyed by the children were the doughnut, kayak, clear waters and the never ending sunsets. Recommended visits the Hot Springs in Oia, Little Venice in Mykonos and my favorite plane wreck at Iraklia. –Edward, Lizzy, Harry, Alice & William 
Speedy skipper Alex smiled and charmed us through choppy and quiet waters (perhaps controlled by Zeus and his Gods whose huge, long deep breaths blew in gusts of range –screeching and screaming when at rest). The Dustan Family felt totally secure with Alex’s very experiences skills of a young sea dog. In addition, Konstantina smiled 99.95% of the time and did ALL that was asked of her and more with very useful on shore advice. We loved the Greek food –a wonderful introduction to Greece and the Cyclades. A very balanced trip, tasting the culture and offerings of many islands –everlasting memories of diversity (the steep narrow streets and steps, sheltered by freshly painted white walls, blue painted wood and decorative red geraniums and vines. A HUGE THANK YOU to the crew/team of Idea! BRAVO! Impressed with the team spirit and comradeship of Alex and countless friends everywhere helped us squeeze into unexpected places. Total Distance: 430 Nautical Miles –perhaps OTT!!! Top Speed: 12.3 Knots.

Alex and Maria, 
Thank you for making out trip so much more wonderful that we could have imagined. Even though we were quite substantial, Maria managed to had us with her gourmet style!! The Great food and service was absolutely “ Amazing …we are moving to Greece”!
Our confident captain Alex made us feel safe and we are grateful to have been in such good hands with his sailing expertise! He turned the high winds and the large seas into a fun adventure rather than a cause for concernce. 
Alex and Maria were such perfect crew and we felt so at home on this boat. It was truly like vacationing with family! We never felt like we were imposing with our requests or our many questions about sailing in general! 
We will miss our frappes but we will never eat another piece of “bread”! 
We will never forget this one of a kind trip with Alex and Maria! 
We don¢t want to leave but we must return home of … course!  
Thanks for all the laughs, beautiful sights and wonderful food.

At the conclusion of our cruise with you on IDEA in June 2012 we were convinced that no catamaran holidays could ever surpass the magnificence of that one. How wrong we were! Thankfully we realized that we could not resist repeating the experience and how very happy we are that we did. As we come to the end of another 7 splendiferous days in your company on Idea we are once again so grateful for Your caring, friendly, professional hospitality and expert seamanship and ability to impact his knowledge in such an effortless and interesting manner.
We cannot thank you enough for your warm friendship and we look forward very much to another idyllic week on Idea! 

Lots of love,
Hilary and Michael

Our trip through the islands of Mykonos, Paros, Ios, Folegandros, Serifos and Athens was one of the most incredible experience of our lives. The caves were magnificent the swimming, hiking, eating and game playing were so much joy. Our family will remember this forever. I hope we get to try more islands next year with you guys.
Cooking was beyond explanation ...delicious and creative.

 Gazpacho’s team, August 2009
We don’t have words to describe this week. Everything was just perfect. We don’t know how to say which was the best part: the yacht, the skipper, Stella or the company! Everything was amazing! Alex and Stella were the best. We hope to live that dream again. It was unforgettable.
There are no words, only sentiments.

Thanks for everything, for making us so happy!
