This article attempts to analyse social relations between tourists and the inhabitants of tourism regions in Greece, from 1960 to the present. The introduction describes the special characteristics of the regions concerned by the analysis, and the parameters of greatest importance to the analysis framework. The analysis itself discusses two periods in detail. The first period (1960–80) covers what is historically considered Greece's first stage of tourism development. The second (1980–98) discusses the basis for the subsequent transition to industrialised mass tourism. In its conclusions the article sums up the main characteristics and peculiarities of communication between tourists and the local population in a country as dependent on tourism as Greece.
