Mystique Guest Reviews

We had a great trip aboard the Mystique, and especially all of your hard work and companionship. You two were great guides through the islands. You kept us safe, made sure we had fun, cooked us wonderful meals, made us laugh and gave us great recommendations about coves and beaches. We hope to see you both again next summer!!

13 - 20 JULY 2019

Many many thanks for this wonderful week. You have an amazing sense of hospitality and you made our trip so special!! You will both stay in our head forever and especially Kid’s one.

This has been the trip of a lifetime - so much so that we now have matching tattoos as our souvenirs! You two have been the most incredible hosts. Nothing would have been the same without you. Thank you for sharing your beautiful country with us. I hope you agree that this experience has now made us all family. You are always welcome as our guests in the USA. We cannot wait to see you again!! Ευχαριστώ πολύ <3

What a truly magical experience on board Mystique. Your kindness, hospitality and loving presence made this trip so special. We have dreaming about this trip to Greece for many years and it EXCEEDED all of our expectations. Thank you for showing us all of the beautiful places and for all of the delicious food!!

23 - 29 JUNE 2019

It is hard to believe that this trip for our family could have been even better than our trip last year. It exceeded any expectations we had. Perhaps it was a new comfort level from having sailed with Thanos previously, or perhaps it was our conscious effort to really embrace the moment and enjoy our adventures to the fullest. Either may it was the most memorable family vacation we have ever experienced. Thanos and Evy were a huge part of our family in an amazing time we had. They are dedicated and professional making sure that we were safe, happy, well fed and having a fun time. I will always remember the incredible sense of serenity it provided. I am sad to go off the boat! Until we sail again!!

12-22 JUNE 2019

Thanos & Evie,
What a wonderful 9 days we have had visiting all the beautiful islands. Thanos is a great captain taking us to all the beautiful spots to swim and snorkel and Evie is the best cook. You both were supreme host and hostess and it was a trip we will never forget! After 9 days we feel you both like family! Hope you will come and visit us in the U.S. Thank you so much for your warm and gracious Greek hospitality.
Trevor & Carol

All the best to you both! XoXo

18 - 25 AUGUST 2018

My family and I really enjoyed this week on board of the MYSTIQUE. We have visited a lot of incredible islands with wonderful houses and objects. The sunset in Hydra was amazing! My brothers and I have loved the pancakes for snack and all the water toys. And we all enjoyed swimming in the sea!

11 - 18 AUGUST 2018

(Dear future Guest, definitely ask for Elena’s fish bake, roast lamb, Bakaliaros and squid pasta.)
Dear Thanos and Elena,
We have had the most wonderful week – thank you. Thanos, for your expert sailing in blistery winds, a brilliant itinerary and endless patience with watersports. Elena, for your masterful cooking and endless cheerfulness as you supplied one delicious meal after another. We love every minute of it! You are da’ Best!

Thank you both for the BEST time. You have made it an exciting and beautiful week. You have great patience and gave us such a good guidance as to where to go and what to do. Thanos is a brilliant Captain and Elena, your cooking is wonderful!!!
Efcharisto poly!

Thank you for being so welcoming and funny in the rough sea! Amazing food and great company! Xx

Thank you for the best trip ever! Will miss my favorite Captain and best Chef!

28 JULY - 04 AUGUST 2018

The cave and the attention that you took to our group was so special. It was such a special week – an opportunity to make a few new friends as well as catch up with old friends. What a memorable trip!! And, it would not have happened without both of you as our captains. Such a special thank you to you <3 <3 <3
This has been one of the most memorable experiences I have had, and a truly spectacular way of experiencing your beautiful country! And this would not have been possible without your expert navigation Thanos, and the delicious cooking Elena, that made our week-long stay on Mystique feel amazing.

21 – 28 JULY 2018

Dear Helena and Thanos,
Thank you so much for your hospitality, the attention you pay to every detail and the effort you put into making every activity fun for each one of us. We would also like to show you how thankful we are for becoming our Greek foster parents for couple of days…we’re sure you’ll be wonderful parents yourself one day. Once again, thank you for everything you’ve done for us (the meals and the activities were incredible). We hope you never forget us!
Much love!

14 – 21 JULY 2018

Thank you so much for a lovely time aboard. You guys are always so cheerful, helpful and kind! The meals are all awesome. You have outdone yourself with the menu, variety and presentation. Loved sending time with you! My guardian angel was wonderful!
Thanasis and Elena
You both have done a wonderful job making our week in the Greek islands fantastic. You are both warm and caring people who always have a passion for what you do. Thanks for your patience with our rambunctious boys for teaching them to water ski!! And thank you (I think) for making me fatter! I mean… thanks for the wonderful delicious amazing food Elena!

30 JUNE – 07 JULY 2018

We have been blessed with opportunities to travel the world. We planned this vacation/ adventure to celebrate our daughter’s 15th birthday. What we did this week far exceeded our expectations. The times we had were unforgettable… The sailing, the ports, the history, the sunsets…and THE FOOD was just amazing.
We loved not having an itinerary. We just let Capt. Thanasis tell us what to do, and we were in awe every day. 7 days went by and we felt we were related to Thanasis and Elena.
I hope God give us the opportunity to come back again and continue to discover this beautiful country.
Thanks Elena and Thanasis from the bottom of our hearts.

23 – 30 JUNE 2018

Dear Thanos and Elena,
This was our first trip to Greece and because of you, we did it the best way possible. Thank you for the magnificent itinerary (Seriphos, Milos, Syros, Paros, Kea). The Milos Caves were a highlight, and the pouring rain in Syros during our hike to the top of the hill. Epic! Thanos is truly a superhero (Dock man!) Only a superhero would think of giving a jet lagged 6-year-old the helm to keep him awake. Pulling into dock under Poseidon’s Temple lit up on the hill the first night was amazing! This was truly an amazing trip. We hope to come back for another round of amazing islands! And some more incredible food prepared by a maestro!
Many thanks!
The French Family!

09 – 16 JUNE 2018

You two are amazing!!! You made our first sailing adventure a wonderful experience and something we’ll remember forever.
Thanos - your captaining of our home away from a home was great and you always made sure all was safe, and fun for everyone. We loved not really having a plan and deciding each day where to go made an adventure carefree. You said yes to everything we wanted to do and made us feel well taken care of.
Elena - your cooking was world-class! Really!! We can’t say enough about how our family meals prepared by you each day was such a centerpiece of our trip. It will be hard to finish our vacation and enjoy regular restaurant food now.
To you both -thank you for being great people and making our family yours for our week together.

29 July - 5 August 2017

This trip to Greece was a celebration! A week later, it ended under the beautiful colors of the sun disappearing in the waters of the bay in Athens. Thank you both for a delightful week filled with excellent cooking, incredible flavors and great discoveries! Stavros you have battled the Meltemi with incredible talent and made it almost pleasant. The kids had a blast and will remember their first official cruise forever! The adults enjoyed every minute of it and we are extremely thankful for a week of rest and happiness!

8-15 July 2017

We are so glad, really, we spent a wonderful time. Greece is so nice!

17-24 June 2017

You both were absolutely wonderful. You were flexible and very accommodating. You handled our 1 year old with pleasure and created a new best friend. We coudlnt ask for more. We wish you smooth sailing and good winds for the rest of the summer!

14-24 May 2017

Thank you for the amazing cruise, despite the weather not cooperating initially! I look forward to my next trip! You are both very special and talented!

6-13 May 2017

Kind Regards!


To Mike & Helena,
Best crew ever by far. Also best chocolate Mike ever. It was very comfy and fun staying with the Mystique and even better with Mike & Helena. I d enjoyed a lot.
Thank you, from chocolate bay!
Mike & Helena,
Thank you for the trip of lifetime. Having never stayed in a boat nor traveled to Europe before, I was stepping into this experience blindly. I am glad that was the case, because every port, every meal, every journey was more incredible than I could have ever imagine. Keep it real, Abigayle


Mike & Elena have shown us a memorable week! From exploring the Western Cyclades to the fabulous food, we were over whelmed with beauty! Greek food! Culture, Snorkeling, Tubing, Swimming, Paddle boarding, Kayaking, all in tranquil, aqua blue lagoons.Mike found us hidden gems of vacations. We are humbled by how Mike & Helena have welcomed us to the Mystique and have been friends. We will remember Mikes confident dockings in ports and his impish, calm smile. Elena has taught many tips for Greek foods. We look forward to her future cook book. All the islands are swimming lagoons well worth to get there but what we will remember how much fun we had on board Mystique. We look forward to seeing Mike & Elena!
With warm friendship gratitude,
The Kolstads


Captain Mike & Elena,
Thank you very much for taking in the Mystique through the calm and transparent ocean on the Cyclades. We ve had excellent moments, it was so fun sharing them with the Captain and his explanations about how to sail!

Mike and Elena,
You have made this experience so incredible for us. This truly has been a trip of a lifetime for us. From the moment we met you we knew we would be done friends. Steves birthday night was memorable. It was one of his better surprises!
The food was better than anything we were thought it would be. Thanks for the extra 10 pounds! We really are serious when we say we would love for you two to visit us so we can return the hospitality.
You have our contact information and remember the secret to a good marriage of 35 years is Yes Dear, No Dear, whatever you say Dear!
Love you Guys!


Captain Mike and Elena!
What a great week! Touring the Greek isles aboard Mystique was fantastic. You made the trip very memorable. Elena thanks for the fantastic meals, snacks and drinks. I cannot pick a favorite because they were all outstanding!
Mike thank you for finding beautiful coves and showing us how to fit in ports that are already full. The shopping, swimming, sunning, water sports, drinking, music, friends, laughter and a great crew with great meals created a vacation we will never forget.
Thank you!
Mike & Elena,
Mike you are such a great Captain and Elena you are a great cook. I loves when Captain Mike took us to Santorini and all of the other you took us it was breathtaking and amazing. Elena, your deserts were amazing and your meals were fantastic. My trip was amazing because of you two.


Elena and Mike,
Words cannot express how special you have made this trip. Your hospitality is above and beyond, and I appreciate that as much as your good humor and camaraderie as well. I will miss your cooking Elena, and Mikes, Its what you want
I will also miss my floatie time and Mike trying to knock us off the tubes! I look forward to future travels with you both, whether its aboard the amazing Mystique, at on Elenas couch, on another country adventure! Thank you for all the laughs, experiences and an amazing journey aboard the Mystique!
Elena and Captain Mike!
The past week has been more than wonderful and a lot of the reason thats so is because of the two of you! Elena the for sure 5 libres Tim gained (happily) was because of your fantastic cooking! You have a talent for sure.
Mike you captain the boat perfectly and as a matter with my children on board (even though they are grown adults), I was always sure they were safe! The sailing was absolutely awesome!
Both of you are special people and have made this time with our family memorable!
Favorite meals all of them! But if I have to pick one or two (or three) :
Favorite breakfast egg guiche, (muffin size), fruit with honey and nuts and yogurt, baguette and various breads.
Favorite lunch the lamb meat balls with rise.
Favorite dinner the chicken breast combo.
Deserts every single one of them!
Mike and Elena,
Thank you for sharing Greece with us! This trip has been full of surprises (calm seas, moonlight private) , caves, 5 stars meals, sense of humor and so much more. I could not have imagined a better time in Greece than what you provided. Our adult family of six is departing today with happy hearts, full bellies, and priceless memories which will from now on be known as Mystique.
You two are now honor ally members of the family who we all hope to see you again!
Mike and Elena,
We loved, loved, loved our Greek adventure! In no small part to you two. Captain Mike took us to the most beautiful coves and hidden gems in the sea. Absolutely breathtaking! Elena was a master 5 star chef who kept us guessing on what delicious meal was coming next. Thank you so much for a wonderful week of laughter, joy, and exploration. Untill next time! Sails up!
Harris family!
Favorite lunch was the gyros and lamb meatballs. Favorite desert was the banana pie that Michell almost dropped. Thank goodness she didnt! All the food was top notch!

Cain Family & Chelton Family

Dear Mike and Anastasia,
We have spent a magical 10 days on the boat and not often experience such relaxation and the chance to go to so many beautiful bays and towns. We massively enjoyed walking around towns and villages soaking up the wonderful Greek culture. It is rare when you come across people as kind as Anastasia and Mike who have served us to the point where we can ask for no more. Charlie

The funniest moment for me was when Mike has to jump into the water and it was really cold and he had to get a rope off the propeller and it was funny when he came out because he was jumping up and down because he was so cold. Thank you Anastasia for making wonderful food and mike for being a fantastic skipper. Xxx Mia

Dear Mike and Anastasia,
Although I have only been on the Mystique for a few days, I must say Ive had the time of my life and I wish I could stay longer. My bed was extremely comfortable and the food was fantastic. I enjoyed Nutella crepes and bacon for breakfast and toasted sandwiches for lunch. Once again I want to say thank you so much for the luxurious cruise and thank you for taking us to glorious bays which helped me learn to successfully dive from height. Joss

Dear Mike and Anastasia,
My 10 day stay on Mystique was absolutely magical. Firstly because the beautiful boat was basically a villa with a sail and secondly, because the crew were wonderful, very warm and welcoming to all of us providing us with all we need. Before this, I have never been to Greece and this exquisite sailing adventure was an incredible way to come here for my first time. Thank you so much again, An

Mike, put out the tender
Lower the tender
To shore we must flee
For it is precarious to wee
When starting at the peak
Of the very lovely Mystique

Oh, what a glorious time
Friends, family and wine
And not to forget the sunshine
We forged our way
To a new bay each day
And in Anastasias care we lay
The heart of a wonderful stay.

Thank you, Edward Cain

Dear Elina, you have been amazing, the best cook ever! We have eaten like Kings and Queens! Every meal was delicious! And you did it all so calmly and presented it so beautifully. Do a cook-book, we will buy one! Thank you, have a great summer! Love, The Appells xxx

June-July 2015

Michael & Elina,
You both made this trip amazing! We loved every port and the food was awesome! Fantastic! We felt so very pampered everyday! Thank you for your expert seamanship in 60+ knot winds and the bumpy ride. We felt safe in your hands Michael! Thank you Elina for the wonderful food and fantastic presentation at every meal! And thank you for caring for every one of us all day long. A special memory is the Greek night traditional food in Poros! And dont forget mama mia! Let me know if anyone brings more litters of vino than we did! Hope to see you next time!

Dear George and Emilia,
Travelling 5000 miles to get here was more than worth it!!!We fly out on Monday, and wish we could come back on Tuesday!
We loved the itinerary and every island we visited. Without your ideas and expert navigation we couldnt have experienced all this.
Your company, jokes and laughs were great. Even better was the beauty salon. Thanks heavens our hair looked good because our figures are ballooning with all the amazing food.
We hope to see you in Miami, and well be the captains and cooks for you.

Dear George and Emilia,

Laurie and i would like to thank you for providing us a wonderful experience in the Cyclades over the last week.
Your professionalism and attention to every little detail made for a special adventure during our visits to each beuatiful island.
This experience was special for me because it is the first time that i have been able to enjoy the magnificence of many of the Greek islands from the sea.
The skills of captain George were evident during one day of rough weather. He was able to navigate through rough weather with ease. At the same time Emilia made sure all of us were happy and very well fed with her special cooking skills.
You provided us with the best experience of Greece and we thank you very much!
All the best John and Laurie

Dear Captain George and Emilia,

You have ruined Greece for us ! How can we ever see it again with out you ? You both have made our trip through the Cyclades perfect. Wether good weather or bad you made each day a wonderful experience. The food was the best we have had in all of Greece. George´s fishing skills are now legendary.
The beauty and the silence of the catamaran under sail is something we will remember as a special part of our Greek experience.
Thank you , thank you ! As we head to Crete we are already missing you !
Ron, Marrianne.

The journey we had a pleasure to go through, which brought us an unforgettable experience, wed like to thank for so the hard work and great service of the crew members would not be forgotten.
We would like to say great thanks to Captain George for being both friendly and professional, showing us this little world we would never expected to find in Europe, where the places we visited would leave warm and kind traces in our memories. The atmosphere which was created for the perfection of our holiday made us feel in our own planet without any discomfort which persuaded me to transfer all of our good and thankful feelings in this letter.
It also should not be left out how our great cooking expert Christina introduced to us the best dishes a Greek person could know! The food was simply amazing though some people gained some extra weight...
Excellent work guys!

Being a child and living one week on an amazing boat is a dream come true. I want to thank George and Cristina for being amazing helpers throughout this experience. I couldnt think of a better way of spending my 10-11 b-day
Thank you George,
Thank you Cristina,
P.S. Ill remember not to come in wet again


Dear George and Christina
Sharing with you this wonderful week in the Greek islands was very special and a wonderful experience . Many many thanks for all your warmth and caring.
Take care
Graber Family

See you soon!

Captain George and Cristina :
We had an amazing experience on the Mystique, floating on oily waters on our way to Mykonos which looked like a dream. Cyclades and Peloponeso islands, night navigation, even herculean effort to repair one of the engines showed that both of you make a perfect team to enjoy safely an incredible holiday on Greece waters.
Food was superb, we will always remember you guys and this excellent week on this amazing catamaran.
Thanks ,
Adrian, Gaby, Tomi and Julia Isman

Top ten things about the June 2012 Mystique Cruise
1. If your champagne bottle is smaller than 6 liters, you are doing it wrong.
2. Never ask Christina if there is another course of food. There is.
3. Millennium millennium.
4. Attention! Anchor! = swim time!
5. If its your birthday, George is your DJ.
6. Wine glass maximum acceptable loss rate (also known as WMALR) is 25%.
7. If you go horse back riding in Paros and they ask your skill level Always say advanced . Seriously.
8. Dont screw with the Mykonos pelican.
9. Breakfast at 1pm is the new reality.
10. The Russian way is the only way!
Thank you for an incredible week.
George & Christina- you guys are the best!
