ماذا ستفعل

Following paths only locals know, we'll trace the footsteps of famous philosophers and politicians as I'll take you through some of the most picturesque areas around the ancient heart of the city. After about 2 hrs we'll conveniently end at Monastiraki square, that’s full of places to eat, shop etc.

We'll discuss how the creators of democracy strove everyday to improve this political system and how we can copy some clever hacks they introduced. What's incredible is that we'll actually be standing and discussing at the exact same places the ancient Athenians were gathering to discuss and argue themselves! Based on my personal academic research, I'll point out hidden details you won't find in any tour books.

Keep in mind this is NOT a long sightseeing walking tour, so if it's your first day in Athens, it's good to join another walking tour of the city, as a general introduction to Athens. My experience is actually a walking seminar that focuses mostly on delving a bit deeper into history, politics and the important lessons we can learn by discussing and sharing our ideas , opinions and facts!

Yes, we can. Follow me to where everything started.

Greetings! I'm George, I was born in Athens and I've studied Ancient History/Archaeology both in Britain and in Greece. For more than a decade now, I've been organizing and leading tours. As a professional historian I've worked with universities and schools from all over the world.

I specialize in the birth of democracy, how those ancient ideas were revived by the American Founding Fathers and the practical solutions that all modern republics can implement today.

أين ستكون

We'll meet at Thissio which is very close to the Ancient Agora and the Flea Market and just a minute away from the metro station. Soon we'll be heading away from tourist areas, towards the hill of the Observatory and we'll end later at the busy square of Monastiraki, next to another metro station.

Should you get the chance, book this tour! It ticks all the boxes at an absolutely ridiculous price. Fantastic views, with multiple locations that you wouldn't find on your own. I have so many amazing pictures from this! An engaging, deeply knowledgeable guide who is able to both educate and entertain. George really took the time to explain how the concepts of democracy grew and developed in a way that was clear and easy to understand. Crazy value for money. So worth it. Really, really happy I went on this tour. 10/10!

The tour was truly one of the highlights of our stay in Athens. Georgios is an expert in his field and he also has a very charismatic personality; he really makes the history come alive. We felt that these couple of hours made us better understand not only history but also our society and future. Rather than being a monologue from his side it was an engaging and inspiring walking seminar that we would certainly attend again if given the opportunity.

Captivating tour in the origin of democracy. George knows his subject and is enthusiastic about it. I learnt a lot and we had very interesting discussions about many aspects of what he explained. Highly recommended.

I was on holiday with family that weren’t tourists so took myself off to learn a bit. I have a nerdy passion for politics and loved how George was the same. His love of history and his passion for Athens and its legacy to the world it wonderful - and so interesting. I have been to Athens several times and this was great beyond a “average tour”. The word idiot has so much more meaning to me now!
