TESTIMONIALS

  • Customer: Coralia O., from USA
  • Charter Date: 30/05/2015
  • Sailing Area: Cyclades
  • Catamaran: Lagoon 500 - ELVIRA

We had an amazing time on Elvira! Captain Patrikis, Niko and Anna are wonderful hosts and made our cruise extra special! The captain planned our journey mad made all our desires happen. Anna is the BEST cook and a wonderful person. Nikos is more quiet but very nice too. We would highly recommend the Elvira and especially the crew to anyone - it has been a magical trip. The highlights were Anna's cooking, Paros Island and sailing with the dolphins





We really enjoyed our trip through the Greek Islands. The wonderful crew we had made our trip unforgettable and full of pleasure and emotions. This trip gave us inspiration for next year and we hope to come back to BEAUTIFUL Greece. The Russian Team Svetlana, Irina, Ekaterina, Evgeny, Vladimir, Stepan, Ilya
