Hope to be back soon! All the best, Sindre, Anne, Martine, Magnus, Alexander|
|We will never forget this 2 awesome weeks on Mimosa. We had a very good time Tassos and Alexia made us feel like home and our 2 boys. We were sailing between small islands and finding sweet towns and ports. Food was very tasty! Thank you, Kat, Marius, Frank & Alex|
|First time sailing and have felt in love immediately. Wonderful islands, Tassos always found the right spot in little beaches. Both Tassos and Gregoria made us feel like home. Amazing people to spend our holidays. Tassos always on the move and funny and Greogoria put some pounds on us with her great cooking. What else is there to ask! Blessed to have spend this wonderful week in great places, with family and our friends Tassos & Gregoria. |

|It took less than minutes for Mimosa to feel like home and only seconds for Tassos (one man one crew) to feel like family. We covered a lot of ground in just 48hours on the boat but no amount of boating can ever be enough. We have to come back soon to explore more and to bring others. |
Tassos, thanks for such an amazing time. Your hospitality and expertise are both beyond measure.
All the best and safe sailing,
Chris, Adrian and Zanna
|The Mimosa and its crew have made our honeymoon a trip we will never forget! From sailing between small islands to finding the most amazingly beautiful corners to stay for the night, and fine diving morning, noon, and night. Tasos and crew have made a prefect cruise. Our own private 5 Star hotel on the water. |
We can't wait to come back.
We had such an amazing time on our trip, thank you so much for all of your hard work putting it together. The hotels were all wonderful. However, the highlight of the trip was really the boat. The MiMosa, its captain, and Alex our concierge/chef were all perfection. I think I speak for both myself and Michael when I say that it was an incredible experience.
