I had a lovely fortnight sailing with activity holidays Greece. Our first week was with a flotilla of other boats, which I highly recommend. Ben doesn't allow his flotillas to be to large in order to allow everyone to get to know each other over the course of the week sailing together. Each week he plans a route taking you through the highlights of the Ionian Islands and he handles all of the moorings and restaurant bookings so it is very low stress.

In our second week we took our Yacht out on our own to explore. While out we could always message Ben for advice on places to visit, moor up or eat. He has a wealth of knowledge of the islands and is incredibly helpful.

This was our second time sailing with Activity Holidays Greece and I would definitely recommend it to anyone that plans to sail the Ionians.

Our first time sailing as a family and we are so glad that we chose a Learn to Sail holiday with this company. Captain Jack was incredibly spacious and comfortable - even in a Greek heatwave we slept comfortably and she is a beautiful boat to sail, But by far the best thing about our holiday was our skipper. Ben is a class act who fitted into our family dynamic seamlessly - joining in the banter but calmly professional at all times. HIs patience with our nautical incompetence and appalling jokes was impressive and we miss him terribly now we are back home. Although the Covid situation meant that we were a flotilla of one, he made sure that every day was different and full of fun experiences for the whole family. Mealtimes at tavernas with generous and welcoming hosts gave us an understanding of the affection he and his lovely fiancee Nina have for the islands. A special mention also to Taryna who sold us from the first phone call - she is so easy to chat with and a great asset to the company. Overall a real treat to spend our holiday with such a well run company. We will definitely be back soon! X

We had the most phenomenal week sailing with Ben! The views are incredible, the sailing was amazing, and every night we had a great time exploring a new port, eating, drinking (and dancing!). Ben was a superb host - he knows all the best and most beautiful spots to stop for lunch (that those commercial competitors don't), he is so friendly and nice, made us feel very at home, took our input on the itinerary and travel, has the best port activity/food recommendations, and most importantly, not only entertains, but encourages playing music over his speaker and singing along (cc Moana)! Our trip was an absolute dream and we would 11/10 recommend others to do the same. It's definitely the best way to see the Ionian Islands. Thanks so much Ben and Activity Holidays Greece! We hope to see you again someday!

The sailing boat isn’t fit for purpose for a family with young kids.
Super small room that can barely fit 1 person… it is meant to fit 6 as per the company.
No flexibility whatsoever with leaving/arriving time, dinner times etc.
We were told (before booking the activity) that the heat shouldn’t be an issue during night time and that was a lie unfortunately. We couldn’t sleep because of the rowdy music just outside our boat, high humidity and tiny room that we ended up booking hotel rooms during our stay.
The host would change leaving time and arriving time to fit his own agenda and would come up with reasons like the winds will be so high that we have to arrive early and on one occasion the host left us at the port at 2 pm to go and spend the night at his partners house and changed the port destination for this.
We unfortunately had a horrible experience for a vacation that we were looking forward to and Ben did not even bother to apologise for any of the above. With that being said, the Greek people were amazing and their hospitality is something that I will remember for long time.

Just back from a fantastic week’s sailing in the Ionian with Activity Holidays Greece.

We chartered on a ‘bareboat’ basis, but Ben & the team were amazing throughout: always at hand to give us expert advice on when & where to go ... and how to get the best winds, moorings, tavernas & EPL coverage!!

The winds were favourable. The 47’ yacht was perfect for the 6 of us. We visited lots of beautiful places and met lots of lovely people: all socially distanced of course!

Massive thanks to Ben, Nina, Taryna & everyone involved @ Activity Holidays Greece. We’ll be back!

This was our second holiday with Activity Holidays Greece & it won’t be our last! We are already booked for 2021. We felt so lucky to be able to escape to the beautiful Ionian this summer and to have an amazing week with Activity Holidays Greece in a mini flotilla with another lovely family. We had not met them before but we became great friends during the week with the children meeting up at lunch & evening stops for lots of swimming & paddle boarding.

A special mention for Shannon our very patient skipper who continued to teach us as much as we could absorb about sailing whilst enduring my husband’s demands to fish off the back of the boat before leaving the port.

We saw dolphins on our last morning which was so wonderful & had been a life long ambition of mine.

In short if you would like a holiday with super weather, beautiful scenery, great fun people (Ben & Shannon), whilst learning a new skill then I cannot recommend this more highly. Thank you Ben & Shannon

We managed to get out to Greece between lockdowns in September and it was the most wonderful break and escape. Ben and the team were so knowledgeable about the area and nothing was too much trouble!

We had a little sailing experience from childhood holidays and so we’re slightly nervous booking but Ben and the team were absolutely fantastic! Whether we wanted to sail ourselves or have a little time sunbathing whilst moving to our next location Ben accommodated everything with ease. He taught us so much and made it feel so easy!!

We spent a massive proportion of time in the water snorkelling and Ben took us to gorgeous sea caves which we could explore! Is there anything better than getting out of the sea from exploring to sit and have lunch on a gorgeous yacht?!

Thank you for everything and we cant wait to go back this year!!

We booked on the recommendation of some friends and were extremely pleased with our entire sailing excursion. Ben and his staff took care of all the details, including paperwork for each port, adjusting the schedule to our itinerary, and assuring we had just the right yacht for our needs. Our instructor/skipper, Shannon, was patient, fun, energetic, and highly knowledgeable. She kept our days running smoothly and provided us with plenty of options and recommendations on things we could do while in port. This is a beautiful and fun place to sail, with reliable winds and a variety of options when a change in itinerary is needed. Going by yacht allows you to access places to swim that are otherwise difficult to reach with breathtakingly clear water and incredible natural beauty. Each day ended in port with a wonderful meal at a traditional greek taverna, an opportunity to shop for supplies, and visits to local merchants such as bakeries and coffee houses. We can't thank Activity Holidays Greece enough for making our dream sailing holiday a reality! We're definitely coming back again soon!

Just back from our first family sailing holiday and it was brilliant. We have two girls aged 9 and 10 and as complete sailing novice's we couldn't have been in safer hands. We sailed every day, stopping over in different harbours each night with plenty of time for swimming in secluded coves during lunch stops. Our boat was Sandy G skippered by Ben and sailing with us in Jason G were two returning sailors Grant and Sandra, skippered by Shannon. We became one big extended family for the week creating some amazing memories. We saw dolphins on three different days, explored places that you just can't get to by other means and took our first steps in learning to sail. I can't recommend this family run business highly enough. From the first contact with Taryna (Ben's mum) who manages the bookings, to asking loads of dumb questions of Ben (Owner and Skipper) before we went, to meeting Nina, Ben's fiancee who made us feel so welcome and Shannon (Skipper) who became like a big sister to our girls it was an amazing experience.

Second time in two years with AHG and once again, we had the most incredible time!

Ben accommodated a group of friends plus a 5 month old baby in the most beautiful yacht and, once again, took us to incredibly beautiful spots with his unparalleled local knowledge.

That knowledge also saw us safely into the best port to ride out a big storm and giving us the best of the weather by avoiding the worst hit islands. This meant whilst commercial fleets were stuck “storm bound” for 2 days in bright blue skies, we were out having tonnes of fun sailing, cave swimming and SUP’ing.

It’s an absolute no brainer to book with Ben if you’re looking for a wonderful holiday that has it all - beautiful islands, amazing food and incredible experiences all round. I’ll most definitely be returning a third time!
