What participants say:

FAY GRAHAM, SCOTLAND / “Our Crete tango holiday was a great mix of tango lessons in a beautiful Cretan village, meeting lovely, new people from all over the world, dining in fabulous local restaurants, driving through mountains en route to milongas( our only company being goats with their bells ringing!). All this while the sun shone constantly! As well as great memories, new friendships have been formed. My confidence in my tango abilities definitely increased with Raquel’s tuition, resulting in an increased passion for tango”.

VIRGINIE ALIX, FRANCE / “Sea – Sun – Tango & Good food” Surely the best coktail for unforgettable holidays, with nice people, in such a beautiful island : The Crète”

ALEXANDRA KOENZ, SWITZERLAND / “Crete Tango Escape june 2018 was a beautiful and very enriching experience. I loved it! The perfect mixture of dancing tango, exploring Crete, relaxing and enjoying life in good company. Kamilari is a nice traditional cretan village, with open and friendly people, excellent restaurants and just 10‘ far away from the sea by car. The water is gorgeous everywhere on Crete!!! Raquel inspired us not only with her passion for tango but also with many excursions, offered almost every day. Our trip to Heraklion, dancing at the Milonga with cretan Tangeros, was one of many highlights. We had so much fun together. Thanks Raquel!!! If I could I would join ed. 2. Hopefully there will be an ed. 3 :-)

DR. HELEN SPOUDEAS, LONDON / “I’ve seen Raquel charm in large and small classes and audiences, but it is in the organisation of this innovative, rural Cretan, Tango retreat that she has excelled and realised a different wish and experience. Somehow she manages to combine expert teaching with local know-how and informal travel guide / tour operator without the usual corporate detractors, accepted and welcomed as she is by the villagers as one of their own. Tuition is in the local village hall every morning with one free weekly class and show for the delighted residents, with opportunities for private classes interspersed between afternoons spent exploring, touring or swimming either as a group or alone (for which you will need a car). Delicious local meals are followed by milongas with welcoming local Tango devotees in Heraklion town or danced under the setting sun in beach tavernas. Raquel’s passion for this “organic” rural idyll – expressed by her love of the Cretan landscape, its climate, fruits, sea and peoples – is infectious and chimes with mine. After all, this is where people in Europe live longest and healthiest. If like me, you are time-poor, single and doubtful, in need of expert tuition, a rest and some rejuvenating sunshine and Greek hospitality, but nevertheless full of life and a dancing dream – (in my case to dance to a live tango band at my 60th birthday) – and prefer a small group, peaceful holiday setting with like-minded others, consider this unusual Tango break. Who knows but if you do a couple (June and October) as I did, you too might gain enough time, skill and confidence to realise your dream.”

MICHEL FRIAUD, PARIS / “Wonderful beach and tango workshop in Kalimari/south Creta . A lot of fun, delicious food,happy meetings. Thanks to Raquel Greenberg. See you soon in London with the girls and the great Manos Christofakakis”

LESLEY SINCLAIR, GLASGOW / “The lessons were fabulous. I really enjoyed every day and feel that I learned a lot. It was also great to have opportunity to have private lessons too. The village was lovely, felt very safe and the people were very friendly. The downside for me about the village was that I had not appreciated that if you didn’t hire a car there was no public transport so you either went with the group or stayed in the village. It was great that we visited some beautiful secluded beaches that we probably wouldn’t have found on our own and some of the scenery when we were driving was spectacular”.
