There are enough accolades to describe the incredible week we had with Mariia & Nikolas. They are really friendship and professional to the highest order. Nikos is a wonderful skipper and Maria works magic in the galley. We had an incredible week of sailing and gustatory experience. We cannot wait until we can sail with them again. Best wishes always to a wonderful couple.
Dianne, Greg & Nicolas
Beautiful boat, awesome week, made extra magical by our wonderful hosts Maria & Nicolas. Nothing was too much trouble, and every day we tasted amazing food thoughtfully prepared by the lovely Maria. Nicos took us to some special spots to anchor for swimming, paddle boarding, and snorkeling. We would love to come again and consider them both as our friends. Look forward to the next time!
Our love & best wishes,
Karen, Den & Johny

08 - 15 JUNE 2019
You are a lovely couple, being able to live the life as a captain and hostess. It was our first sailing experience in the Cyclades. We had no idea what to expect. After 6 days now we feel at home. I enjoyed the sailing. Luckily we had enough wind everyday. We really loved the food and every stop we did. All the islands were really beautiful.
Thank you for everything
01 – 09 SEPTEMBER 2018
Marcos and Veronica,
We can’t begin to thank you enough for the amazing experience that you have given us. For over 10 years I dreamed of coming to Greece and I had a picture in my mind of what it would be like. It’s same for reality to be better than dreams, but in this case, it was true. Everything about the trip was perfect!! From the quiet, beautiful locations you took us, to the delicious 5-star meals, we wouldn’t do a single thing differently! We appreciate the time and care you showed us and we wish you both the best in your future endeavors. We ‘ll keep in touch and we hope to see you in port and invite you onto our own boat someday!
All the best!
11 – 18 AUGUST 2018
Many Thanks for that excellent trip with very good captaining by Marcos and so much constant hard work by cook/hostess. The high winds at the beginning drove us early to Hydra, and then we explored Cyclades. We have seen a little bit of the beauty of Greece and had deeply relaxing sail days – a big thank you to both crew for looking after us so well!
A superb trip – this was a very special experience in every way. Wonderful to be in such excellent hands! Would love to come back again next year with my children!
07 – 14 JULY 2018
Thank you for an amazing holiday. Our time on the boat was fantastic and something we all will remember for a long time. The food was definitely something that was a highlight of the trip. I loved the swimming and the touring. We are lucky to have had some great staff and great people in general. Thank you again for an amazing holiday.
30 JUNE – 07 JULY 2018
What a wonderful break – we loved our time on Shooting Star and crew looked after us superbly. Captain is a very accomplished sailor and cooks cooking was delicious. Together they made a great team and we couldn’t have enjoyed more
28 APRIL – 14 MAY 2018
These two weeks sailing adventure in the Cyclades was one of the highlights of our travels for all time. The comfort of the shooting star – but most importantly the expertise, caring and concern of crew – especially her wonderful cooking was beyond all expectations. We shall miss you both!
Tom said it all - we loved every minute of our ‘’Aegean Dream’’. Richard – on second thought, perhaps he can add that the comfort of our journey in the lovely boat, Shooting Star, was all the more enjoyable because of the enthusiastic, caring and good spirited attitude of the crew, Captain and hostess; whose company we enjoyed very much. We felt truly fortunate to be in their care.
9-16 September 2017
Could not ever hope for a better captain and chef! This has been a fantastic week. How can I survive without you? You have spoiled us all!
2-9 September 2017
We loved every minute of the past week. Lovely weather, enough wind to sail for two days, what a thrill, and lovely breezer on other days made for a very relaxing cruise of in some very beautiful islands and bays. food was superb and Captain captaining was thoughtful and extremely reassuring. They are a fantastic team, we are incredibly grateful for all of their hard work. We are the lucky ones, what a memorable and enjoyable week. Biggest mast and best boat in every marina we visited! Thank you and best wishes!
29 July -12 August 2017
Athens to Cyclades. We will always remember and keep this trip in our hearts! Crew really showed us the beauty of the Greek islands and sailing in beautiful seas. We will also remember the good food and wine and all the laughter. And exiting “landing” in the ports. Keep up the good work and lovely atmosphere and hopefully we will see you soon!
20-29 July 2017
We had a great time on Shooting Star and the outstanding caretaking by crew. Two days we had a real storm and is was a test for all – handled excellently by Captain. The wind is always out of control! Many thanks for everything!
18-25 June 2017
Thank you very much for a wonderful trip! We enjoyed it very much and you made all of us so comfortable. By far you were the best Captain we have had and we look to more sailing adventures together. Also thank you for all delicious meals you prepared for us along with your kindness and care! Until the next time! Wishing you all the best!

Thank you so much for a most enjoyable holiday! This trip has made my first time to Greece very special. Thank you so much for the great hospitality. Kostas was an expert navigator and took us to the most pristine islands/bays and gave us great tips on what to see/do in towns. Dora was serene, just like the island Skyros that she came from the service is truly first class!
Highlights of my trip was:
1. Catching the superman in the bay under the sanctuary of Poseidon
2. Excellent salads prepared by Dora
3. Swimming in warm waters in San Nicholas Bay
4. Old town in Kimolos and
5. Donkey ride in the island of Hydra
Look forward to another trip with you guys in Greek waters very soon! Wishing you fair winds and following seas all the time. Love, Graham & Fiona (Hong Kong)

When Jamie and Max returned to Paros, we discovered our love for the Cyclades and our best trip on the Shooting Star with Telis and Liza increased this by many time. Efharisto Poli.
Max, Lori, Ashley, Miller.
Next time, Samos!
Thank you so much for such an amazing trip! It was beyond my wildest dreams.
You guys made my trip.
Telis and Liza made sure we had an amazing trip. Their knowledge of the most beautiful places to go and how to pace the trip for the most enjoyment, was greatly appreciated! I cant imagine a better introduction to the Cyclades.
AND Lizas food was so tasty and wonderful.
Thank you Telis, Thank you Liza for making this vacation a really wonderful, memorable trip for us, our family and our friends. It was a pleasure and a privilege to be aboard and all of us really appreciated your way, your knowledge and the wonderful food.
We have just finished a week long cruise on the Shooting Star 64 with Captain Telis and Lorella and we are absolutely enchanted!
Where to begin? We have been looking forward to this vacation for the past 7 months and I was a little nervous. However, as soon as I met the captain and Lorella my worries went away. The boat was kept very clean, they were very conscientious, very reasonable, very responsible, very nice and welcoming.
They taught us about sailing , spoke to us about the breathtaking islands we visited and made us feel very comfortable being first time sailors!!
I cannot thank them enough. These past 7 days have been amazing and we will never forget this trip!
Benjamin, Aliza, Sylvia, Nathan, Ella & Noah
Saturday Morning. We are in our way back to Pireo in a beautiful day. It will be difficult to forget the week we spent at the Shooting Star with Telis and Christina. They were the ones that made the difference with other charters we have been in. They have a deep knowledge of all the places we went to, work as a real team in the yacht and are always willing to make our life delightful. We will remember for a long time Christinas and Telis cooking and we will never forget their conversations and the love they have for the Aegean sea.
Ayul, Miguel, Bruno, Sadi, Cosme.
Fantastic Boat, Fantastic Crew, Fantastic week!
We ate fabulous meals of fresh local ingredients in idyllic settings, swan sailed an amazing boat (and learned to sail better!) and explored unique and varied islands. We couldnt have asked for a better experience. My son (a veteran of 2 previous sailing trips) summed it up I was never bored for a second. Thanks for a wonderful family experience!
It was a dream listening to music when sailing with my children I will remember forever. The crew Telis + Lisa made everything seem easy the food amazing the boat too good for us! As I said to Mauro when we have a bad day in winter we will remember those days and feel better. Greece is the best particularly on this boat
Everything has been fantastic! I had mixed experiences in the past with skippered yachts but this one has convinced me that it is enjoyable with the right ones. You have given us the right amount of advice, service and privacy. I hope our ways will cross again.
This is our final morning of a fantastic 7 day sail through the Cyclades on board the Shooting Star. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience. All of our expectations , which were high, were exceeded. The Shooting Star was perfect for us. Modern, clean and efficient in every respect. The boat sails well through heavy weather and the abundant space and facilities make for a pleasant on board experience. From past crewed sailing experiences, we knew that the quality and character of the captain and crew is vitally important. We expressly asked for the best and in Telis we received the best. Telis and his wife replacement on crew Natalia were fantastic. We wanted to experience the true culture and beauty of the Cyclades and Telis designed an itinerary that delivered that experience to us. His devotion to safety and seamanship are first rate. He is very attentive to his guests and takes ample time to provide special insights and education about the island culture, the sea and history. Telis is an outstanding chef and takes great care in his cooking, menu preparation and food & wine presentation. Natalie was quietly efficient in caring for us and keeping the cabins clean. Always with a smile, Natalie is a gem.
This has been an experience of a lifetime for Pat, Jim, Judy and me. We will remember this trip with fond memories and smiles. Clearly we will recommend Shooting Star and Telis to all of our family and friends.
It was very nice trip and we enjoy our time. Million thanks to the crew, to Aristotelis and Lorella. These both make it possible for us to have a great week.
Arthur and friends.
We have just returned from a fabulous seven nights sailing with Telis and Rannia.
What can we say, it was perfect! Telis is an experienced sailor, we could see that.
Also Rannias food was delicious. Thank you so much for a lovely holiday.
Hopefully one day we can return to Greece and sail with you again.
A wonderful trip! Exceeded all of our expectations. Telis and Liza are wonderful hosts and masterful sailors. They are made Greece come alive. The highlight of our trip- Thank you!
