Dear Callisto crew,
Thank you for the LOVE and CARE throughout this incredible trip. Because of you it was nothing but magical. Thank you to all of you!!

31 AUGUST – 07 SEPTEMBER 2018
A beautiful week on a very nice boat with a fantastic crew! We very much enjoyed cruising around the Peloponnese and visiting the islands of Hydra, Spetses, Poros….
Everything was perfect!
Thank you to all of you!
Χιλια Ευχαριστω για ολα!
14 – 21 AUGUST 2018
The best vacation I have ever had! Pure perfection. The fantastic crew made it all possible. We absolutely loved them! We cannot thank you enough! This vacation surpassed all expectations. A beautiful classic swan (not just a boat) and a super crew! Mike the captain could not be more professional. Understated and very polite on the outside, a consummate professional on the inside who always got us where we wanted safely and in the best route possible. We could not have hoped for a better captain!
Dori, the steward who foresaw every meal and executed every wish with tremendous precision and energy. An incredible member of the crew that made the boat a 5-star hotel! Yannis, one of the best chefs ever, who feasted us with exotic and delicious dishes every day. We wanted to take him home with us to New York! Last but not least Christos, the sailor who in any other boat would have been the captain. Always gracious, good-humoured and efficient. A consummate professional!
I also want to thank Martha, our broker that I met by accident thru the internet while looking for a sailing boat to charter for my wife and I. She guided us in a super way and truly the perfect boat with our budget. Thank you Martha!
With our very best wishes to all and profound gratitude for a spectacular vacation.
01 – 11 AUGUST 2018

You are a great team on a great boat!

Perfect crew even for a 9-month baby on board Thank you for this SYMPHONY of the senses.

25 June- 7 July 2017
Thanks for your hospitality and kindness! We spent a lovely time sailing with you and the great Callisto! We wish you all the best
An unforgettable travel around Greece coast! A marvelous week, sailing and warm. Fabulous sea with the Captain open a mirror of magnificent water. Sunshine over day as a daily miracle. The cooker, French spoking so smiley and clever, making of each meal a new surprise. Constantine always ready to help with such a pretty smile. Dimitris ready to prepare everything we asked for. Thank you for this special holidays spent with you, sailing, sunburning!
For an unforgettable holidayCaptain Argi for always making us feel safe and suggesting the most pristine, secluded places, anticipating our desires in an explanation of beauty! Konstantina-the perfect host! From morning to night and from the first day to the last, always glowing with a great smile. Her reassuring hugs always made us feel at home!
Miran-A great cuisine floating in the Cyclades! Making Gioulia eat fish has always been a challenge, yet your talent has made her and everyone else super happy!
Dimitris-A careful and smiling presence, always available to satisfy our needs, to the prior of taking tomorrow on a dinghy adventure in the middle of the sea to find reception to make an important can!
Four great individualities, one outstanding team! Thank you for the lovely times spent together.
See you next year with more Malibu on the beach!
And again Callisto!!! Thank you Tina, Argiris, Mihran and Dimitris. For marvelous two weeks here again with you on board!
Just as we expected, time flew by here on Callisto! Memories mere made, comical moments were shared, and of course beautiful sights were seen. However none of the above would have been as impactful if it werent for our incredible crew-Dina, Argi & Miran & Dimitrious. Upon arriving to the boat on our first day, we had a slight mishap on the way over, delaying us by just a few minutes (lets just say one to a many bottles of wine were drinker the previous night). Regardless of the fact that we showed up in bit of a hotness, the crew greeted us with smiling faces and welcoming arms-we knew instantly the next week on Callisto was going to be unlike anything we ve ever experienced. Needless to say, as we near the final days, the trip absolutely surpassed expectations.
A HUGE THANK YOU to an amazing crew, a wonderful boat, a beautiful group of islands, and a loving family!
IN ONE WORD WE SUMMANGE THIS TRIP AS AMAZING!!!
Captain Argi : The yacht ran like clockwork, each island. Anchorage seemed prettier than the prior! Your expertise, local knowledge and seamanship made for a perfect week!
Admiral Dina! Your hospitality and graciousness made us feel right at home! We never felt so pampered as we did all week!
Chef Mihran : The food was absolutely incredible! Once we tasted your fabulous cuisine we decided to eat all meals on board. No restaurant could match your masterpieces it was all very decadent!
Super Dimitri : Your agility and assistance ensured we all were safe, happy and secure. We especially liked your rock-climbing in securing the boat!
TO ALL : This was a trip of a lifetime! Many memories were made and will forever be with us. Thank you for making it incredibly special!!! xoxoxo
Despite our plans to return in 2016 we were lucky to make it earlier for another week here on Callisto. Many thanks Argiris, Dina, Mihran and George for the wonderful time here again with you on board. Looking forward to next June. Take care, Karl and Christoph
Great boat, great Captain, great Crew, great islands, great sea. My sons politely made me notice I ALWAYS write the same comment since 2010. But what can I do? I mean it: great boat, great Captain, great Crew, great islands, great sea! Efxaristo poli! Domenico
Thanks again for the beautiful holiday, hope to see you next year. (one Frappe please!) Enrico
Referring to 21/9/2014
Not only we came back but we came for 48 nights and we covered 40 islands!!! We are still not finished. We are coming back in September. We are still talking to the Crew and they are still talking to us! No need to say we love Callisto and Argiris, Dina, Miran and George! Love, Mr. Ali and Eleni
To be continued
As Ali and Andreas extras (+3) over the last week, we wanted to say a quick thank you too!! Thank you for showing us 10 of your stunning Cyclades islands, feeding us with incredible food and always smiling. A truly relaxing and memorable holiday! Love, the Malpas Family xxx
We came back to the Ionian after many years of not sailing here in Greek waters.
The boats is one thing but without the professional captain and all crew we would not have such a wonderful experience of our life here on board.
Callisto with Argiris the always foreseeing leader, Mirhan the every-day inspiring chef, George the master of technics and sails and Konstantina the heart of it all.
Its a dream!
Next year again,
Thank you all, Karl
We thought we already had the ultimate experience of Greece and the Greek Islands having spent four whole summers cruising Greek isles on our own private yacht which was based here in 1984-5 and then again in 2002-3 before we sailed her from Greece to New Zealand for the second time. The last ten days have been a whole new and very pleasant experience. Being spoiled on board Callisto is something new and exciting for us. The gorgeous means, perfectly matched wine and the service we have enjoyed is not often found on any yacht anywhere, and the dedication, professionalism and commitment of the Callisto Crew is very unique. Argiris is a dedicated sailor but also the perfect team leader. Nothing is ever a problem on his yacht of which he is the perfect master.
whatever you like to do let me know is what we hear him say most often. We have enjoyed exchanging ideas with him. If there is any wind he will fill the sails up and if we just want to relax and swim we do not in any way feel opposed. He has taken us to his special anchorages and advised us on sights ashore not to be missed. We have very much enjoyed the wonderful spirit on their yacht.
We had to come back to Greece once more and we will have to return again to these waters preferably on Callisto.

The Nautor (Swan) is a world renowned boat for quality and excellence. However without a professional crew is nothing.
On Callisto you get both superb boat and superb crew. We will be back :).
Thank you for making our week with you super relaxing and enjoyable.
Ali & Andrea
Dea Argi, Dina, Miran and Laz,
We have been on board Callisto for the second year in a row, this time for 12 days. Yet again you have surpassed all our expectations. Your patience and energy with Erin Max and Isla was commendable! Thanks for the wakeboarding, donut, rides, swinging off the boat, water skiing, this allowed Mum and Dad to relax and enjoy the new sunbeds! We got to try riding mopeds, scuba diving and cliff jumping. You entertained us from morning till night. Max loved the electric skateboard. Thanks for taking us sailing around some beautiful islands you really know the best places to go! Miran your delicious food was very much enjoyed.
We hope to see you all again for a third year!
Lots & Lots & Lots of Love,
Isla, Erin, Max, Jason & Tracey
Ευχαριστούμε πολύ για το υπέροχο ταξίδι.
Επτά ημέρες πάνω στο Callisto.Οι τέσσερις μας όλη η οικογένεια περάσαμε για άλλη μία φορά υπέροχες μέρες και νύχτες (8-14 Αυγούστου 2014) .
Οι διαδρομές μας μοναδικές πλούσιες σε εμπειρίες, χαλαρώσαμε πάρα πολύ φορτώσαμε τις εμπειρίες μας έτοιμοι για τον χειμώνα
Ο Αργύρης όπως πάντα είναι ένας μοναδικός καπετάνιος πάντα με ένα χαμόγελο έμπειρος και ευέλικτος. Ο Μυράν <<μας πάχυνε>> με τα υπέροχα φαγητά του.
Ο Λάζαρος top of the notch. H Κωνσταντίνα μας φρόντισε και μας παραχαΐδεψε!!!
Να είστε όλοι καλά!!Να είμαστε όλοι καλά πάντα έτσι να ξαναέρθουμε! Διότι θα ξαναέρθουμε!!!
Με πολύ αγάπη
Thank you thank you!
11 days and nights aboard Callisto. The measure of a good holiday must be the sadness in anticipation of departure and boy we are miserable to leave.
Argyris you have been quite spectacular, wonderful. Searching art divine light blue water chasing wasps, humoring the <Sea Dog>, planning itineraries, adapting to weather. The reality is that you know your guests. You know them well you know what they want and you anticipate their needs and their wishes. You are a marvel.
Constantina- We are so very grateful to you for all your hard work. Nothing is too much trouble for you and your energy is outstanding. Your sense of humor and willingness to attend to the smallest detail is so appreciated.
Miran - We have loved all you have prepared for us. The fantastic salads the halloumi grilled the shrimp the pasta the beef (perfectly cooked) the moussaka and of course all our hugely requested grilled fish and abundant vegetables! The best fruit plates and omelets in the Aegean too.Lazaree(!) - Thanks so much to you for all your work done for us.Scampering from rock to rock to find us a solid place.Fred loved his waterskiing being very proud to hear he is only the second to get up!
The Greek islands are beyond belief and like a good estate agent you save the best ( Symi ) for last! Top of the hit parade must be Rinia and Arki too, but departing the madness of Mykonos was also a particular pleasure.
A huge huge thank you from the family Chambers.
PS. And apologies to Argyris for our very poor pronunciation of your lovely name!
Περάσαμε μια όμορφη εβδομάδα με το Callisto στα Δωδεκάνησα. Ήταν ευχάριστη εμπειρία τόσο για εμάς όσο και για τα κορίτσια (και τις φίλες τους).Όμως η διαμονή μας στο Callisto δεν θα ήταν ξεχωριστή χωρίς την παρουσία, την φροντίδα και την φιλοξενία του πληρώματος.Όλη η θετική ενέργεια και μοναδική αύρα που αποπνέει η παραμονή στο Callisto οφείλεται αποκλειστικά στο έμψυχο υλικό του σκάφους.Στον Αργύρη στον Λάζαρο στην Κωνσταντίνα και φυσικά στον Μιράν.Σας ευχαριστούμε πολύ για όσα κάνατε για εμάς και για την συνεχή προσπάθεια σας να περάσουμε όμορφα! Τα καταφέρατε!!!! Καλά ταξίδια.
Καλλιρρόη και Ελένη
We have spent the most wonderful family time in this great sailing boat, and that was thanks to its incredible crew. His great captain Argiris who made us felt really secure and showed us wonderful places and islands. His great sailor who was always ready and prepared to take us in the dinghy and had a lot of fun with him in the tubes. We had the most delicious food in the world prepared my Miram, EVERYTHING WAS GREAT!!! But nothing would be possible by the excellent organization and dedication of the great Dina, she was always more than good with us!!!!
Thanks you all for giving your best always with a great smile as if you were in vacations like us. We are going to miss you A LOT! Hope we see you again for another great adventure in this light blue Greek seas!
We wish you the best!
THANKS! THANKS! THANKS!

Nothing could be finer than to be in the Aegean in the morning.
Nothing could be sweeter, than a trip that's a repeater on Callisto.
When the day is dawning calm and oh so clear, we know we'll be hearing from our Dina dear.
When the Captain is ready to set sails a loft Lazaros will scamper filling his command!
Nothing could be finer than to pull into a harbor in the evening.
Nothing compares to a meal made by Mihran after swimming.
If i could be sailing for only a day when the Captain asks me here is what i would say:
Nothing could be finer than to be abroad Callisto in the morning !
All right? All right!
Ohla Kalado? Ohla Kalado!

We had five wonderful days on board the Callisto. In particular we enjoyed the decent and perfect service of the crew, the flexibility of the captain whenever we wanted to change something and of course the wonderful places weve been to.
Thank you very much to the captain and his crew!
We will come back!
Early June 2003
Callisto is by far the most beautiful and well kept boat we have ever been on (and we have shown enthusiasms). We have been pampered every day and have loved every minute of it. This trip will stay in our memories forever.

Our first time in Greece and it has been unforgettable!
We were lucky to meet our captain, a wonderful and very patient skipper; our cook the sweetest person, who spoiled us with her great cuisine; our hostess, who always had a smile for us and great ideas to entertain our teens. All the islands we visited were beautiful and friendly. Fortunately there are many more of them, so the promise is that we will be back!! Thank you for the great time you gave us!
This year was amazing. It is rare to have so much fun, pleasure and good food.
To you captain, you are one of the best of the world, Im sure and I felt safe in your hands so thanks.
To our hostess, you are a very funny person, who brings life on the ship and I enjoyed it more than you can imagine.
To the greatest of chef, you are the best ever I will never ever forget the taste of your
food! So in the end - thanks all of you and I will never forget one of you!!N. & S.

To Callistos Crew,
Wow, where to start! What an amazing week it has been, from swimming in the clearest waters in the world, aboard the most beautiful yacht I ever seen, eating, eating and kindness that is rare to find in this world. Thank you all!
To The Crew
Did not know what to expect but you took it over The Top. What an amazing experience you all worked so hard to make this sailing trip perfect. I couldnt have asked for better service. The yacht was superb, food way beyond expectation (tried to kidnap the chef). Well truly remember the crew and sailing the Greek Isles for many years!
Karen and Paul - USA

Our captain (for all the beautiful places weve been to)
Our chef (for the unusual tastes)

And Kostas (for every last minute SOS he was always with us expressing genuine concern).

I had so much fun this year, swimming and going around with the dinghy. The place that I most enjoyed was Milos for the caves with very nice water. Thank you very much for everything .
Best holiday, best boat, best food, best crew, best weather
Domenico - Italy
Everything was perfect but the things I like the most were the swims, creps and the games at fifa II with Argyris.
The most wonderful holidays for the whole family. 5 days with Callisto felt like paradise.
You have been such a great crew. Full of professionalism, enthusiasm, joy.
Argyris you are a top notch captain, Yannis you have really spoiled us, Constantina you know what hospitality is all about, Costas you are the most dazing sailor. Thank you all so much for giving us amazing memories before Elenas departure to Boston.
Last but not least, many thanks to Fany for all the things she has provided us with.

During the course of water events, it became evident six should travel the paths of history. Now, after witnessing the land, sea and sky of the Ancients, we look forward to the present sunstone by beauty, encouraged by a sense of pure ox and bounded by the strength of friendship.
Argiris, Costas, James and Dina made our moments best Thank you!
Thank you Barbara H
What a wonderful adventure! Every day was simple grand-seeing the sites, shopping, sailing and best of all swimming. Everyone on the crew made this happen. Yes the fellows maneuvered the boat but Dina run the ship. We never had a want. Thank you. Thank you, thank you for everything- the perfect sailing experience.
I will definitely miss you all, especially when we are on a boat.
Skip & Bob K
The Dutch family May 23 2012
This is the first time we had the opportunity to sail with our complete family including our youngest granddaughter Guusje of one year and one month.
We doubted how to do that, on our own in a bareboat or with a crew. We doubted as well sailing in Croatia or in Greece. We made the right choice sailing with you in Greece sailing with you in Greece.
You together are a perfect smooth running team, being there when we need you and giving us privacy when we need that. All of you never say no, you all try to do what we ask or make it possible, for example sailing back to help our friends with engine problems or start sailing in the morning at 5 o clock because some nut of hollow likes to let his children see how nice sunset is at sea.
I loved sailing with a crew; I think at least when its you.
Will be back for sure Arie Van Pelt
Me as youngest sailor on board of the Callisto enjoyed it very much. The crew waved me gave me great sandwiches and were always happy to see me. Although I am 13 months old I learned a lot of you all this week.
Hope to see you soon on the Callisto. Probably than walking.
Thanks a lot you all.

Me and my family had lots of fun in Greece. We were excited to visit different islands and different places.
It was a little difficult to sleep on the boat because it was a little bit wobaly.
And to say thank you to Argie, Costas, Dina & Jamie for cooking marvelous food and desserts and Argie for being the best Captain in the World!!!
I will miss you!!It was my first experience!
