We spent a fantastic day with Markos in his beautiful new boat, and what a day. Markos was wonderful and he took us up and down the east coast of the Island. He allowed us to drive and steer the boat, whilst giving us much needed advice. We want a boat so this experience was essential. We loved it. It was one of the best days we have spent on Corfu and we have been coming here for twenty years. The service we received from both Markos and Tatiana was truely professional and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We will be using Gerekos again. 100% perfection. Thanks Markos, Thanks Tatiana.

We are a family group of 5 adults. We had limited time due to the cruise ship schedule. We arrived at port at 11.00 am and needed to be back by 6.30 pm. I contacted Markos and his wonderful assistant Tatiana who helped us plan our private boat tour. We took the Blue bus to the Marvos Gatos - Black Cat restaurant bus stop for 1.75 e each. The bus runs anytime there is a ship in port. We walked to the waterfront and Markos was there with his boat the Paul. There was plenty of room, comfortable ride. He had a ice box cooler where we keep some wine. The weather was perfect and the water crystal clear and warm. We stopped by the scenic church and visited Mouse Island. We loved the peaceful beauty of Mouse Island. There is an old church at the top of the island with a nice cafe and gift shop. They take credit cards. There is a very lovely lady who works the cafe and gift shop. She made great cappuccinos and told us about the history of the monastery, church and island. It is still an active church. We had time to stop at 3 snorkeling, swim spots, plus have a pleasant relaxing lunch at a nice seaside restaurant with awesome seafood, very fresh. We got back to our drop off point with plenty of time. We decided to take a taxi back to the ship from the Black Cat restaurant. There are many taxis lined up to take people to the port. It cost about 5 e per person. It takes less than 10 minutes to get to the port. Markos did an awesome job as the skipper and guide for the day. He is very friendly and accommodating as to what we wanted to see and do. The boat ride was very comfortable. The boat has a fresh water spray hose so you can wash off the salt water once you are back on board. The boat also has a large shade cover which we red heads appreciated. Thanks again to Markos, Tatiana and the lady on Mouse Island for making it a special day.

We came to Corfu on work, and had to film another boat while on the water. It is something we did lots of times with different skippers in different countries. We choose to rent from Gerekos Speed boats and we were very lucky to do so. Our skipper, Markos, was the bast we had till now. Knowledgeable, helpful, clever, putting safety first and able to know what to do even before us telling him. We will certainly be back.

It was our honor to be a part of an artwork, that not only shows the beauty of our country, but most of all shows to this industrial world, that the real beauty is hidden in the simple things, so as in the importance of not forgetting about our traditions and its' eternal qualities.
Thank you for choosing Gerekos speed boats for your valuable work and making by that our work and aims even more inspirable.
We will be more than pleased to see all of you on our magnificent Island again.
Good luck and keep smiling!

When I need a happy moment to go to then yesterday will be top of my list

Alex was the kindest most fun host we could have wished for. Great places to swim, taking us to a place for lunch we will never forget

I hope we managed to leave just fumes in the tank Do we want to go slow slow ? What do you think?

Would recommend whole heartedly and can’t wait to do Paxos next year

We rented a private boat for the day and went all around the island visiting beautiful spots to swim in the sea and in some caves. Markos gave us a great guided tour of the coastline and the stop off at Toulas for lunch was amazing. Can’t wait to get back and book another day out, thanks again Markos

Great boat and fantastic service!!! I rented a speed boat (6.5m) for 3 days and it was delivered every morning to the hotel at Kontokali bay. Markos was always ready to help and I would definitely rent a boat from here again next time.

We had a splendid day with Marcos on his speed boat! Visited about dozen different spots where we could see the historic places, experience being so close to landing planes as if you could touch them! We have swam in lagoons, caves and lonely private beaches as much as one wouldn’t imagine!
A stop for lunch has also been great pleasure for service and food quality.
Marcos creates marvelous atmosphere for the trip. His manners are unostentatious and one enjoys every minute of the day!
Highly recommend!

Excellent private boat tour of Corfu eastern coast our Skipper was fantastic and we visited a host of amazing sites like mouse island Vido island and eat at a superb taverna in which a table was reserved for us over looking a very picturesque bay. Beautiful swimming spots and with just the 2 of us we felt pampered. Easily the best highlight of our week stay in Corfu.

Loved our day trip to Paxos and Antipaxos with Markos! He brought us to the best caves and beaches where we swam in the crystal clear waters and relaxed on his beautiful boat, Paul. The price was the best around, and the experience is worth every penny. Markos was not only fun, but a pro! You will be in great hands! Definitely recommend it!
