"Daniel Pittman and his colleagues are world-class travel experts and outstanding hosts. His LLC, Counterpoint, organized the University of Memphis Band tour to Austria and Italy in 2016. The trip was outstanding. All of the logistics were professionally handled, and the students were treated like guest artists. This was our first international trip, and it went so well, that I immediately began planning for the next one. Counterpoint does NOT produce cookie-cutter experiences. Daniel and his team do a tremendous amount of research, and they listen carefully to your needs. Their goal is to provide you and your students a cultural experience that is unique and rewarding beyond measure! Most importantly, Daniel was a successful college band director and took his students on several international trips. He knows first hand what performing groups need, and puts a lot of time and effort into the planning so that all the director has to do is prepare the music, lead the students, and enjoy the ride."

"Daniel Pittman and CounterPoint Travel provided a world-class and unique experience for my students. There was attention to detail with every facet of the trip and it truly made our tour incredibly enjoyable in every way. From the beaches of Normandy to the top of the Eiffel Tower everything was covered. I will use CounterPoint Travel for my future travel needs."

"It has been my pleasure to work with Dan Pittman and Counterpoint Travel on two European performance tours.  Having served as a music educator for more than thirty years, Mr. Pittman has a unique understanding of the specific performance and travel needs of musical ensembles.  Additionally, he seeks to identify the interests of each group he leads and works very hard to personalize the experience, offering a wide variety of opportunities to experience the culture and interact with the locals in each community.  Counterpoint Travel is very well connected with local guides and his tours always offer a wonderful exchange of ideas between guides and the travelers.  There is no detail left to chance when one travels with Mr. Pittman.  Additionally, he is a person of the highest integrity, explains details and expected procedures thoroughly, and always follows through."
