Life on Board
On our exclusive tailor-made tours your yacht will anchor in 2 or 3 bays daily depending on your chosen itinerary and there will be a maximum of 4 hours cruising per day. The last stop will be the place where you will stay for the night. Usually the motor will be used to power the gulet. However, from time to time if the wind/ weather conditions permit, your crew will be happy to use the sails as well.
All of our gulets are equipped with a dingy, which is fitted with an outboard engine. For our customers use there is fishing and snorkeling equipment. Some of our gulets also have windsurf, canoe, water sports equipment and jet ski. Water sports and jet-skiing is at an extra cost and can be paid for on board. There are also ample opportunities to sample different water sports such as jet-skiing, water-skiing, ringo and banana boat riding. These are also available at an extra cost and are organized by specialist water sports groups at the different bays visited.
Once the gulet is moored you will have free time to visit any archaeological ruins, take a little walk in to the pine forests and generally explore the beautiful coastline. Reading your book and having a siesta under the shade with a breeze may be another option. Of course, sea-lovers can enjoy swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing.
We can also organize private land excursions upon your request to the nearby local towns, ancient sites and natural attractions.
Food & Drinks on Board
The meals during the cruise are prepared on board and are of a high standard. We may also recommend some local fish restaurants on your route for you to sample on a few occasions if you would like to.
Menus will be decided before the trip according to your requests and preferences.
At dinner the main course is fish or meat accompanied by kinds of Turkish and Greek mezes (starters).
If you have any special requests (religious preferences - health oriented) these can be organized if notice is given beforehand.
Our chefs will delight you with the surprises they present during your meals.
Athens is the capital and the largest city of Greece. With over 3400 years of history, it is one of the oldest cities in the world. The ancient city of Athens was a strong city where the connection to the sea and the maritime trade was realized through the port city of Piraeus, which is part of Athens today. Piraeus is now home to Greece's most important transportation port. In the history of the civilizations, the breakthroughs realized in the city of Athens especially in the fields of ancient philosophy and art are of great importance.
Athens hosts the Academy of Plato and the likeyum of Aristotales. Due to the unique contribution of Athens to the world culture, Western civilizations have tended to associate themselves with the civilization of Athens, at times when the eastern civilizations lived their golden ages. Modern Athens is a city where ancient, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods and modern times structures and cultures live together. It is possible to see that the structures belonging to these periods exist together in harmony in the city. Athens is the political, cultural and financial capital of Greece.

You can almost feel the historical heritage of this ancient city. Parthenon is the most famous of the works remaining from this period. Apart from the Parthenon it is possible to find important structures dating from the Ottoman, Byzantine and Roman periods. The two UNESCO world heritage sites in Athens are the Acropolis of Athens and the Dafni Monastery. The Hellenic parliament, built in the 19th century, and the National Library of Greece, the Athens Triad, the University of Athens, and the Athens Academy are the best examples of modern trends. In 1896 Athens also hosted the first modern Olympics. The Modern Archeology Museum in Athens has the largest collection of ancient Greek artifacts in the world.
