O que você fará

Let me take you on a journey through time and history, as we trace the footsteps of famous philosophers and politicians.

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.
Based on my personal research, I'll point out hidden details you won't find in any tour books.

Keep in mind this is not a sightseeing walking tour, so if it's your first day in Athens, it's good to join some other 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.

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.

This was an amazing tour! I had saved it in my wishlist for many months, and when I finally had the chance to visit Athens I had the pleasure to meet George and listen to his stories. Democracy is such a hot topic these days, so this tour will help you understand more of it from a historical perspective. George is extremely kind and knowledgeable, and his stories are interesting and thought-provoking. Highly recommended!

This experience is amazing. George is so knowledgeable and passionate about democracy, and also knows so well his city Athens and the archaeological sites, that it makes it definitely a highly valuable experience that gives you the chance to learn many facts that are definitely not on the history books. I will highly recommend it!

My husband, two college aged daughters and I just finished the tour with George this morning. His walking tour truly made our stay in Athens incredible! We learned so much about Ancient Greece and it’s contributions to modern society and its influence on the government and judicial system in the U. S. We also learned about the history of modern Greece and Greek mythology. All this, while having a lot of fun! George took us to out of the way places for great views, took us to see synagogues and gave us some Jewish history, which was our personal interest. George was generous with his time and answered all our questions about Greece . He is a lovely intelligent young man, with perfect English. This tour will also inspire you. Don’t think twice, book this tour the beginning of your stay to acclimate and get a local perspective and advise for your stay. It’s great fun while getting a crash course of new knowledge.

George is a very competent guide and really knows his field. Besides that the tour was very personalized and I really enjoyed spending my time in Athens this way. He even took more time to show me even more around. Definitely a recommendation!

I had an awesome time walking and talking with George! We covered so many topics, he educated me on all aspects of Greek history, the story of Athens, and the foundations of democracy, and opened my eyes to philosophical concepts and ideas which really got me thinking. If you enjoy learning and being given an interactive lecture on Athenian and Greek history, myth, democracy, and the lessons we can learn and apply to today's world by someone who really knows their stuff, look no further than to book with George! He is also a delightful and enthusiastic person who is very natural and easy-going, so the whole experience was a wonderful way to spend a few hours.

This experience was wonderful. I was lucky to be the only one in the tour, therefore I could ask all the questions about philosophers I wanted. George was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of democracy and critical thinking. I highly enjoyed this tour, very much recommend it
