Što ćete raditi

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.
Other things to note
Certain parts of this walk require an easy hiking uphill and include a few steps too. So if you're using a wheelchair please contact me in advance so we can adjust the route to your convenience

Greetings! I'm George.
I was born in Athens and I've studied Ancient History/Archaeology in Britain and Greece. For over a decade I’ve been working in the field of Educational Tourism. I’m co-founder of the ‘Traveling Students Academy’ and author of ‘Heroes Of Philosophy’. As a professional historian I've worked with universities and schools from all over the world, appeared in various TV shows, and lectured extensively on Democracy.

I specialize in the birth of Democracy as a political system, how those ancient values were revived by the American Founding Fathers and European thinkers, and how we can implement practical solutions today to improve our societies.

Gdje ćete biti

We'll meet at Thissio which is very close to the Flea Market and just a minute away from ‘Thissio’ metro station. Soon we'll be leaving busy tourist areas behind, walking uphill, enjoying amazing views of Athens, and we'll finally end at the busy square of Monastiraki, which is next to the metro station.

George gave a super engaging tour of Athens key historic points and offered a wealth of knowledge on how democracy was formed here and how it provided the basis for so much of European life since. Really enjoyed and highly recommend

Marvellous tour! I learned a lot and was shown important spots by George. You could tell that he is very passionate about the origins of democracy and politics and he is able to draw you in. We led some really interesting discussions. I am so happy I did the tour.

George shared his passion for thought and debate with real clarity. He drew interesting and thought provoking links between the ancient world and modern Europe. The ruins of Athens were brought alive.

George was such an incredible storyteller. I felt like I was walking back in time with him. Not only was he engaging and passionate, but he really had in depth knowledge on the history of Athens, both culturally and politically. He changed my perspective of democracy.
