  • So special & memorable
    29 June 2019

    I wanted to write and thank everyone at Greek Isles that made our trip so special & memorable.  From our initial communications, to showing up on the dock and seeing Kalidna ready & provisioned, meeting Nicos & Vivi, the level of support provided was outstanding. 

    Overall we could not have been happier with our time sailing with Greek Isles and we look forward to sailing with you again.

  • A reliable and good yachting company
    22 June 2019

    Had a very good experience renting a yacht for two weeks here. Greek Isles Company is a company run by four people who all know all the details about their boats. Also during the trip, they advised me when needed on some occasions. I would come back here again.

  • Yet another fantastic sailing experience
    21 June 2019

    Just a short note to thank you both and everyone on the GIY team for yet another fantastic sailing experience. We enjoyed your very high standard of service once again, from the initial enquiry stage right through to the yacht handover.

  • Excellent
    19 September 2018

    Would thoroughly recommend, all the staff were professional, friendly and very helpful. Our yacht was obviously really well looked after, sailing 'Poly' was a joy. The ouzo raspberry jam also went down a treat!
    We will be back .....

  • Mini Honeymoon: The best boat charter experience ever!
    10 September 2018

    All very professional and great service from end to end! The most amazing skipper and Crew in all of Greece! Seriously, if you decide to visit Greece there is no other way and the best part is, it was completely affordable and the best quality boats I have experienced thus far. In terms of Crew and Skipper, definitely ask for Nikos Avaridis and Vasia!!! They are so nice and know the Greek waters and it’s treasures like the back of heir hands!!! Thank you Greek Isles Yachting for this most unforgettable experience!!!

  • Der erste Segeltörn in Griechenland
    01 July 2018

    Kallisti ist ein tolles Boot, alles super gepflegt und in Ordnung, gut ausgestattet, es fehlte uns an nichts. Die technischen Einrichtungen, angefangen vom Motor über den Kühlschrank bis zu Sanitär haben alle perfekt funktioniert. Zu den guten Segeleigenschaften haben auch die neuen Segel beigetragen. Gerne wieder


    Michael, Sun Odyssey  439, "Kallisti"

  • Excellent!

  • Super Woche Top Vercharter
    15 May 2018

    Sehr guter Service, wir hatten Probleme mit unserem Gepäck. Die Base hat sich drum gekümmert und uns das Gepäck mit der Fähre nachgeschickt. Vielen Dank !!!!
    Die Kommunikation ging auf englisch und deutsch sehr gut uns zu jeder Tageszeit.

    Axel, Sun Odyssey 45 "Amorgos Blue"

  • Bester Service, technisch einwandfrei Schiffe, tolle Beratung und richtig nette Menschen!
    14 May 2018

    Wir waren zum 3ten Mal mit GIY unterwegs. Wie immer beginnt der hervorragende Service bereits weit vor der Anreise. Um Provisionierung, Transfer, Sonderwünsche kümmert sich das Team um Marialena ganz selbstverständlich und vor allen Dingen frühzeitig.

    Bei der Ankunft erhielten wir unser Schiff (Arethousa) in perfekt vorbereitetem Zustand (Sauberkeit und Technik). Auch die Einweisung sowie die Checklisten zeugen von Liebe für das Detail und lassen keine Fragen offen. Zusammen mit Armando haben wir aufgrund der Wettervorhersagen unseren ursprünglichen Plan Richtung Hydra zu laufen über den Haufen geworfen und uns aufgrund seiner hervorragenden Ortskenntnis in die Kykladen aufgemacht. Die richtige Entscheidung!

    Nach unseres einwöchigen Törns bleibt festzuhalten, dass das Schiff in einem sehr guten Zustand war (keinerlei Probleme), die Ausrüstung praxisgerecht ist (nicht vermisst und von einigen Dingen überrascht) und der Service in allen Belangen erstklassig (freundliche, nette Menschen die Ihren Job verstehen und lieben) war.

    Frank, Bavaria 45 "Arethousa"


  • What a week :-)
    02 May 2018

  • Sail charter with Megisti
    22 August 2017
    Thank you for wonderful service from the begining to the end. Getting infornation, quick response to questions and any advice needed. Never had such experience before on many charter trips taken. This exceptional service continued after arrival when receiving and returning the boat.

  • Sailing away in paradise
    16 August 2017

    From booking to finish our experience was excellent. Emails were answered promptly and completely. Our boat Megisti was provisioned exactly as requested. All staff were courteous, professional, and met all our needs. Costantino was extremely amicable and helpful, and even called us a taxi when we departed. Our skipper, Manolis, was fabulous! His skills were top notch, his demeanor friendly, and his recommendations of restaurants and excursions were perfect. He was eager to show us how to sail and encouraged us to sail as much as we wanted.The boat was well maintained, fully equipped and very comfortable. Overall, our experience was wonderful!


  • Nothing short of awesome
    08 August 2017

    Our experience with Greek Isles was nothing short of awesome. The attention to detail by Constantine and his crew was exceptional both in the detail of the yacht and their organisational skills. The welcome basket of goodies was a lovely touch. We felt well taken care of and loved the entire experience. We would have no hesitation in recommending Greek Isles to others.  Greeks are and should be very proud of their country. They are naturally welcoming and incredibly friendly. See you soon!


  • Thank you for the perfect Organisation
    05 August 2017

    Thank you once more for the perfect Organisation, perfect boat and extremly friendly treatment.

  • Feedback Charter April - Kydonia
    04 May 2017

    We had a wonderful time in the Cyclades and Greek Isles Yachting-Team had a great positive impact:

    The boat, a Sun 349 from 2014, was in excellent condition, very well mantained

    Even more important - Armando and Constantine from GIY did a fantastic job in taking care of us: we felt truly welcome, they helped us substantially, were available when we needed them. I cannot remember too quickly when we have ever enjoyed such a level of hospitality. Really outstanding

  • Our 7th consecutive year
    16 June 2016

    Greetings to all at GIY,
    Well, we are all now back in England in the rain, and memories of our happy days aboard Arethousa are fading fast. This was our 7th consecutive year with Greek Isles Yachting, and it is still a great pleasure to sail with your company. Everything went smoothly, the booking process, check-in and handover, and the yacht was in perfect condition and very smartly prepared.

    A big thanks to the whole team, especially Marialena and Sofia in the office, and as always to Constantine for his usual warm and friendly service.
    Warm regards from England.
    Ken and the Arethousa crew

  • You are all the best
    28 October 2015
    Hello Greek Isles Yachting!
    We enjoy the stay at your base!
    The ship, the Crew, the Office: You are all the best.
    Thank you!
  • We really appreciated to sail with GIY
    22 August 2015
    We had a very good time in Greece and we really appreciated to sail with Greek Isles Yachting. Thanks Armando for your support, Thanks Constantine for your welcoming
  • Thank you for making my holiday
    06 August 2015
    In my perspective a GREAT company
    Your company has two big strengths.
    Your philosophy of quality and service around the boats you charter to your clients is one of the highest standards. Real quality (for example about safety) is a genuine and unique asset and tough to maintain.
    In all my interactions with your staf, they are first and foremost friendly, helpful next to professional. This combination with the previous strength makes you in my perspective a GREAT company.
    The cherry on top is the fact you are able to make to whole check in /out procedure of chartering very smooth and simple by proactively managing the time consuming and bureacratic details. Together with the details (a dutch flag, etc)
    I travel for my work to a lot of countries, visit a lot of venues, hotels, professional service companies and you are in my view among the best client focussed service providers I know. Keep it up!
    Thank you for making my holiday.
  • Thank you for the wonderfull sailing holiday

  • Greetings from the crew of Polykandros 1 June 2014
    25 July 2014
    GIY lived up this mark
    Greetings from sunny England
    We had a very enjoyable fortnight sailing from Cos to Athens(and even a bit of tense adventure when the steering failed outside the harbor at Astypalea with a lee shore!
    It is the mark of a good charter company that when things go wrong (as they always will at the sea!) that the service is there to put things right.
    GIY lived up this mark when it was arranged to be fixed in a timely and professional manner.
    Please thank Constantine for arranging this and all his excellent service as usual.
    We are already discussing our next year's holiday and should be in touch in the coming months.
    Best regards,
    Ken and the crew of Polykandros 2014
