The recently completed Tangents Greece Music Tour was as close to perfection as a music/cultural tour can be. I expected some hiccups in Greece due to the financial crisis but none materialized.

I updated the 
Testimonial page and he 2017 Tangents Greece Music Tour Itinerary. Both links are highly informative.

I arranged 12 concerts in 17 nights with a who's who of Greek artists including
Cretan lyra master and Tangents favorte Ross Daly, singer Kristi Stassinopoulou, oudist Haig YazdjianThe Daulute Trio, Alekos Vretos Quintet, Kyriakos Gouventas Trio, Evgenios Voulgaris and Sokratis Sinopoulos duo, rebetiko guitarist Dimitris Mystakidis, Balarom Trio, singer Martha Mavroidi and more.

The concerts were in intimate settings throughout Greece. There were 7 concerts in Athens, 2 in Thessaloniki, 2 on Crete and 1 in Zagorohoria (Epirus region in Pindos Mountains).

The tour travel hubs were Athens, Crete (base is Chania), Thessaloniki, Pelion (mountain above Volos), Ioannina, and Pindos Mountains. We also visited the other worldly UNESCO World Heritage Site Meteora and two gorgeous beaches, one on Crete and the other in Pelion and had several 'alternative' walking tours in Athens and Thessaloniki.

Plans for the October 2018 Tangents Greece Music Tour are underway. Because I opt for culturally authentic boutique hotels, reservations are done a year in advance to secure rooms.

We just had our first general orientation and 9 poeple signed up. Group max size is normally 15. Email tangentsgreeecetour@gmail.com or call 415 584-4367
if you'd like to be in the loop for the 2018 tour. It is tentatively schedued to begin Oct 5 and last 17 nights. It could shift a day or two. Dates and cost should be finalized by year end. I welcome 1:1 orientations on the phone or if you live in the Bay Area, we can meet in person.

I'll leave it to Mark Twain to get in the last word:

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
