I realise so many weeks/months later that I never wrote to you to thank you for organising our fabulous holiday to Croatia. We were all bowled over by both the beauty of the landscapes and seascapes of Croatia but also by the people who were just so warm and welcoming. Our Gulet was fabulous and crew efficient and food incredible. Thank you, Dora - we had a wonderful holiday. With best wishes to you and Eleganza.
We had a wonderful time in spite of the weather which could have been just a bit better. But that was more than compensated for by the beautiful Andjeo and the wonderful, hospitable Niksa, Tommy and Vedran. They could not have been more attentive and charming. And the food was exceptionally good. We all had a thoroughly great time. 10 out of 10 to the crew; we could not have asked for more or for better!
We had a wonderful time on board the Lagoon 620. Davor and the crew were exceptional.
We had a wonderful time on board the Aurum. You have been absolutely wonderful with everything and thank you very much for all your assistance.
Thank you for arranging our trip on Eleganza. We had a fabulous time-- the scenery, water and towns were all wonderful and the crew were outstanding. We have been on many gulet trips in Turkey, on larger and more luxurious boats but never before have we had a more comfortable experience and such a professional crew. The gulet itself was also exactly what we expected and we felt very much at home.
We had the most wonderful time on the Anna Marija. It definitely met our expectations, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Croatia is just beautiful.
Mrs Thrinder - Smith
We had a wonderful week on Barba - everyone had a very happy time. Under the Captains' guidance, the crew were all very professional and looked after us all extremely well. It was a very comfortable and happy ship. Thank you for all your help in the organisation of our trip.
Mrs Marshall Lee
We just wanted to thank you for sourcing the Sedna for us. We have had the most amazing week on board the Sedna and would like you to pass on our thanks to the owner and crew.
Let me take you through the four legendary members of the Eleganza crew - IVO, the cook: You will never go hungry but excitement will hit before each meal, wondering what wonderful dish is to be served. His food is better than any restaurant on the Croatian islands. LEO, butler/barman: Bartender, host, he cares for your every need and looks after you as if you were his loved ones. First up and last to go to sleep, he commits to his job fully and is beyond superb at it. Constantly on his feet and with a smile on his face, he knows what you want to drink before you even know yourself. No job was too big or too small for Leo, with the simple reply to your request 'why not?'. Leo became our friend on the trip and we will miss him. Captain MATE (Ma-Tay): Captain, route organiser and overall God. An excellent Captain, comfortable in his knowledge of the sea. I never felt unsafe on his ship. A bonus - his smile makes men and women alike swoon from miles around. VLADO, sailor: Don't let his young looks fool you, he drives with the talent of a wise old sea captain. Beyond patient, especially with the fathers of the family who wanted to recreate some kind of James Bond scene on the jet ski. Two stone heavier, a thousand times happier, thank you Eleganza crew for the most magnificent trip. Highly recommend you go for two weeks instead of one to have a wonderful holiday with a wonderful crew.
Dear Dora, your team were just brilliant every single one of them. Leo the perfect front of house. Looking after our every need and thirst! Ivo was such a fantastic cook, he produced sumptuous meal after sumptuous meal. Vlado provided so much fun for the kids and the oldies with water sports and Matty navigated our holiday perfectly and was highly attentive to every need around those magical islands. We loved everything about our holiday, the weather, sea and the Eleganza and we lucked out with the master cabin which was the icing on the cake!!Thank you for organising it all so beautifully.
We loved it all. The Eleganza was great, the crew lovely and the itinerary was perfect. Food on the Eleganza was great and the restaurants were too, except where we ate on the last night - lovely setting but food not great, although maybe it was just an off night. Real success and thanks so much for your assistance.
Dear Dora, as you know the Alba is a fantastic boat, but I would just like to rave about the crew. It’s the second crewed yacht I’ve stayed on and Tash, Mirko, Zlatko and Stipe were SUPERB. Despite phenomenally good restaurant recommendations, we ate nothing on shore that came close to the perfection that Zlatko managed from the galley each day. Nothing was too much trouble for Stipe who taught the girls to surf while Mirko and Tash worked tirelessly to ensure that the trip was tailored to what we needed.
Dear Dora, I just wanted to let you know that we have had the most fantastic holiday. All your organisation and attention to detail was greatly appreciated. Mate Leo, Vlad and Ivo were exceptional and made the experience of sailing around Croatia on the Eleganza with my family a holiday of a lifetime! Thank you again to you and your team, we look forward to our next trip!
We had an excellent week on board Pacha, everything worked out great.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Marco the skipper and had an amazing holiday - Croatia is a truly magnificent country.
We had a truly wonderful holiday! I can’t wait go back! Petra and Toni were wonderful! Petra is an awesome cook and enjoyed spending time with our kids. Toni helped us plan our days and made sure we had plenty of time for swimming and relaxing. Thank you for all your help.
The Angelica crew was fantastic! We have already recommended them to our family and friends.
The crew and the gulet Alisa were fabulousness!! Food excellent, crew friendly and accommodating. We would definitely book the Alisa with you again.
We have had a fabulous time on Eleganza. Great crew, food and service.
We enjoyed a relaxing week aboard the Morning Star. Dom and his brothers were gracious and accommodating and the boat is very well appointed. We were pleasantly surprised by Marco's delicious lunches, topped off by decadent desserts. We will highly recommend the Morning Star to any friends who ask about sailing the Dalmatian coast. Thank you for coordinating everything.
Hello Dora, without equivocation we had one of the most enjoyable weeks holiday we can remember. Thank you yourself for the recommendations and organisation of all that you arranged with our route, crew, taxi and general assistance etcetera. Certainly the Dalmatian coast was a pleasure to visit, the first time for most of us, and we look forward to returning someday to spend more time exploring further. The delight for us especially was the wonderful journey we had aboard the fabulous Eleganza with Cap’n Mate and good natured crew. We couldn’t have been looked after better from start to finish. We will only offer complimentary recommendations to our friends and family as we reflect and share experiences of our holiday with you.
We had a wonderful trip with Marko and his crew. It was a great experience for those who had never done it before. We were very impressed with Marko who was never pushy or overbearing but firm with his recommendations for our enjoyment and safety. Martin produced great Croatian food and Dino looked after us all so well, always smiling. Roberto was terrific too in looking after the boat and us and we enjoyed meeting them all. The boat was kept lovely and clean and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for getting the paddle board which was used but not by me! I hope we can return to Anna Marija again. Many thanks for your help in arranging it all.
A truly wonderful holiday. Croatia is a marvellous country with friendly people and divine food!
It was best vacation ever. Natalia and her husband were awesome. We look forward returning next summer.
We enjoyed our trip on Sedna and found the islands beautiful. We had some lovely meals out and were very impressed by the quality and standard of food and service. We shall certainly visit again. Thank you so much for organising everything so well for us. It was much appreciated.
Dear Dora, we have returned home (sadly) after the most wonderful 10 days on the Gulet Malena. It was the trip of a lifetime. The Gulet was terrific – the crew absolutely fantastic. Luka’s cooking was great and Thomas took us to some amazing places. It would have been wonderful to have had the sails up just once during the trip. It’s probably quite a feat to do this – but would have been a beautiful thing to see. Thanks to all.
Thank you very much for helping us to coordinate such a wonderful sailing trip to Croatia. Both Katia and I as well as two groups of our guests were very impressed with the format of the event, Croatia and how friendly the crew was. Everyone left the boat saying that we should do re-union trip again. In terms of feedback, there is no doubt that we are very much happy with the choice of the boat and the efforts of the crew! All of them pulled their weight to make our experience on the boat an unforgettable one. I would like to highlight the chef Toni in particular. The food was great, both in terms of variety and taste. I was very impressed with the efforts Toni went through trying to accommodate a variety of dietary requirements within the group. In summary, a great trip! Lots of memories to look back to.
Thanks for a fabulous trip!!!!Truly and experience of a lifetime…..the crew, food and itinerary were great!! Chris
Dear Dora, I would just like to thank you so much for your help with booking Gulet Andi. Your information and help persuaded me to go for it and I'm so glad we did! We had an amazing time, I absolutely loved it. The crew were so good, Ivica, Ivan & Anton were so good from Ivica's sense of humour, Ivan's fabulous food & Anton's smile & politeness! The places we visited in Croatia were stunning and the experience we had on board I will never forget, we have laughed all week! You have converted me into a sailing girl and if the opportunity arises we will be doing it again!
Hello Dora, I am sitting in my office reflecting on our wonderful holiday last week. I can’t speak highly enough about the trip, and in particular the hospitality of our family crew led by Captain Frano. From the start to the finish it was an exceptional vacation. The crew was excellent. The family was very hospitable, and professional. Having a family atmosphere was a real bonus. The Captain was excellent, his knowledge and passion for his job and Angelica showed through. We always felt safe and secure in his hands. His handling of Angelica was superb. Lorena (not sure of spelling) kept Angelica in tip top condition, and always greeted us with a friendly smile and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Nico and Peter were good support for the Captain, and my children particularly enjoyed the water sports on board that they facilitated. And our Chef, Islam – what a treat – I have returned 2kg heavier. His food was amazing, from wonderful breakfasts to fantastic lunches and dinners we had on board. All fresh food cooked beautifully. I need him to teach me how to make those little cheese pastries for breakfast! He also had fun, and my son particularly loved his special chocolate strudel. All locations visited were fantastic, and the restaurant recommendations from both Sail Dalmatia and the crew were spot on. Thank you again for organising such a wonderful and memorable holiday that will last with us always. The itinerary you prepared was excellent and met all of our needs and wishes. We are looking forward to doing this again soon, Croatia is such a wonderful country with beautiful sights and people.
Our cruise on Sedna was absolutely wonderful. The crew could not have been more charming or attentive. We loved the scenery and the whole atmosphere of Croatia, especially the friendly people and the interesting towns and villages. Zoran took us on a well thought out and varied itinerary and Dario produced the most delicious, but simple lunches every day. In fact, he prepared some of the best fish we have ever eaten! Thank you very much for a wonderful charter. We would definitely love to go again another year.
Mrs C Brown
Our Croatian trip was superb - one of our best. But in particular, the yacht charter with Alen and Natalija was outstanding. I cannot praise them highly enough. Thank you for all you did in advising and organising our boat charter.
On Dolce Vita as I write. Amazing week. Highly recommend full board as each meal has been better than any restaurant meal. Amazing food and lovely staff. Thank you very much for organising a really wonderful experience.
We had the most fantastic week with your crew, all of them were outstanding in their individual roles. They were unobtrusive, safety conscious and a delight to be around. We all decided we had some of the best meals in Croatia on board the boat. It was for me a trip of a life time and I will be recommending to all our friends. The only small thing was a fan in one of the small rooms didn't work and in this extreme heat it was difficult for the kids to sleep but I am sure this can be easily fixed.
I am now back in London and just wanted to say that we had a great week on Eleganza. It was a joy to be cruising along and then stopping for a swim. We all loved the Croatian coast. Mate and all his crew were charming and attentive. They could not have been more friendly and helpful. The food on the boat was seriously good and better than what we found ashore. Thank you for the trouble you took to organize everything.
Just to thank you for all your help, we really are having a wonderful, fun and happy time! Daniela and her family are exceptionally kind, so gentle and caring and are doing so much to ensure Grandad has a memorable week.
The trip was fantastic, we loved everything about it. The boat was great, perfect size for us, Ratko was the best! He was professional, knowledgeable about the areas we visited, always willing to share the history and information about what we were seeing. He also seemed to have connections everywhere which helped with good marina spots. He was very fun, we enjoyed his company at dinner and on one occasion, we even convinced him to go out with us after dinner. Croatia proved to be a wonderful sailing destination, it lived up to its billing! Thank you for setting everything up for us Dora, we hope to use you again sometime in the future.
We had a great experience on the boat. Eleganza is a great boat, very comfortable and well-equipped. The crew did a fantastic job. We will miss them. It really could not have been better. If I could do it again, I would have spent more time on Hvar. Thank you so much for putting together an unforgettable vacation.
We had a fabulous week on board, loved the whole crew, the food, the Dalmatian Coast, the Croatian people….we did not want to leave! Thanks for all your efforts on our behalf. We are already talking about returning next year and going up the coast. Mate actually made some recommendations for a route.
I just wanted to thank you for organising this trip of a lifetime for our families. We had an amazing time in spite of the slightly chilly weather! The crew were superb and could not have been more charming, helpful and delightful. They went out of their way to make our stay a truly memorable one. The Kadena was very comfortable and our chef Vladimir produced delicious meals from his minute kitchen. We all agreed it was the very best family holiday we've ever had! So thank you for making this all possible and for ensuring the smooth running of our trip. Also thank you for the lovely wine you sent to us we had it on our 30th wedding anniversary lunch, serenaded by Jean on guitar and Vladimir's delicious cherry cake. We would love to be back in a flash....
Mrs Van den Berg
I have just got home from spending my week on Kadena. What a wonderful holiday. I also want to tell you that the crew on the gulet were absolutely wonderful. Nothing was too much for them. Thank you for all you did in making this a memorable holiday. Please pass on my thanks to the crew.
Our stay has been excellent. Great boat and very helpful crew.
Thank you for organising our week on board Angelica. Frano and the crew were excellent and we would love to come back.
Firstly, we have had a great time on board Barbara. Secondly, I want to thank you for dinner on the boat at Brijuni. It was a very good night.
We had a fabulous time, and even the weather did not manage to spoil things. Croatia is truly spectacular and Mate and the rest of the crew were wonderful. Thank you for all your help.
We had a delightful time on the Eleganza. The Captain and the crew were fantastic. Thank you very much to all team at Sail Dalmatia for organising it for us.
The team in Sibenik were very professional, the transfers all worked well, the sailing was great, the people were friendly and we had a great holiday. Thanks for your support and service in arranging everything for us.
Mark and I had an AMAZING time on the trip. I cannot thank you enough for all of your help coordinating - especially on such short notice. Everything you lined up was perfect. Our boat was very comfortable and our skipper, Ivo, was wonderful - he really made the trip even better than we could have expected. And, Croatia is just a beautiful country - the beaches, the food, the people. Mark and I agree we would definitely like to return again soon.
We had a wonderful week on the boat and we also had the pleasure of meeting Marco. The captain and crew were fabulous and were very accommodating. In regards to Croatia, we were very impressed by all aspects including wonderful people and a marvellous coast.
Mr and Mrs Maddalena
The crew were great and went to great lengths to give us the best experience possible. Thank you very much.
Absolutely spectacular. A great trip. Thank you so much. Gulet Aurum
We really enjoyed the vacation and our feedback is extremely positive, both the overall organisation of the trip and on the selection of skipper and hostess. Davor was experienced and friendly and so was Nera (still dreaming of her pasticada!).
We are looking forward to our next adventure!
'We are having a very nice time, and are all appreciative of Alen's attention and professionalism. He's also a super nice man, in fact he's making us crepes
Thank you for the wonderful yacht and the great chef. We are in heaven!
Firstly let me tell you that the trip was very enjoyable. The sights were very good every day; a real mix.
Bodrum is worth a day or more. Knock-off goods for sale
in Turkey are a highlight, believe or not.Kos bike trip
is recommended. The restaurant (Barbouni) was very very good, and affordable. The quick trip to
the Volcano in Nysiros is worth the trip, but as the Captain recommended, we didn’t spend the night there and detoured to
Symi right after Nysiros. Symi is very nice!!!We could have stayed two days in Rhodes. Marmaris’ restaurant Le Kabab was the best
on the trip. The side trip to Dalyan as set up was worth it; he mudbaths especially.The restaurant on Selminiye was good food, but very expensive.
I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time that I and all my friends had on our trip to Croatia. The crew of the Andjeo couldn't have
been more welcoming and accommodating. The boat was beautiful but it was the warmth and hospitality of this outstanding trio of young men that made
our vacation very memorable. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Thank you for all the time you spent advising and planning with us.
We had a fantastic time and would love to visit Croatia again - it is a beautiful country and our sailing experience was enjoyed by all our family. "The best holiday ever"

Just a quick note to thank you for organising our trip to Croatia, and particularly for the last minute alternation. We had a superb boat, a charming skipper,

We just came back and I wanted to thank you for such a lovely holiday me and my son had. Hvar was a beautiful place and we really enjoyed the day of sailing with Jelena.
