Granville is passionate about Turkey and the Balkans, and especially loves setting his clients up with private yacht charters to experience the turquoise waters and sun-drenched islands of destinations like Bodrum and the Dalmatian Coast. He often plans multi-country tours and is always scouting the next big luxury experiences on the ground—from the new Palace Elizabeth hotel on the Croatian island of Hvar, to the see-and-be-seen yacht clubs and stunning mountains of Montenegro. His latest find: the 4-cabin Canaren, a new motorized gulet, or Turkish sailboat, available for charter along Turkey’s Aegean coastline.
Of a recent Turkish sailing itinerary for a client’s birthday, he says, “we arranged for the boat to pass by the captain's home village, and his family members rowed out bearing a birthday gift of freshly caught lobsters. This was particularly special because it took place in a private little bay, away from any other boats or people.”

"Ed Granville has organised two trips for our group of 12 ladies over the past couple of years and is currently organising a third trip for the same group. The fact that we keep returning to Ed, having consulted an extensive list of other travel specialists, is a real testament to him. With a group of women — all with different expectations — it’s tricky to achieve 100% success and satisfaction but, amazingly, Ed consistently achieves the impossible. He is utterly meticulous in planning each tour, remembering nut allergies, children’s names, hotel and restaurant preferences, and a variety of quirky requests time after time. The organisation and execution of each minute of our trip is faultless. In addition, he is extremely kind, holds our hand every step of the way, and always goes far above our original remit. Without exception, we will use Red Savannah again and again due to the service we received from Ed." - Katharine Landale
