Hi, i am Panos, have been working in the tourism industry and just like you i love to travel. I also like to talk about my favourite subjects, History, Philosophy, Politics, Art & Sciences. Having been in more than 30 countries, i know that what is left after each journey is the beauty of the places and landmarks that we visit but also the stories about them. Journeys would be half their value without learning them, so i would like to share some interesting stories about my birthplace. Oh, i should not forget. This tour includes also questions! Questions set by the famous Greeks you obviously have heard and i would love to hear your own replies and talk about them! Look forward to start our journey.

Thoroughly enjoyable tour with Panos who is extremely knowledgeable about his subjects. I would say this is the best walking tour I have ever been on - so if you are interested in Philosophy, Democracy, History book yourself on this tour.

Panos gave us a great tour of ancient sites associated with Greece's historic milestones. We saw some cool spots such as where Socrates is believed to have died, and where many of the great thinkers were buried. Panos is extremely knowledgeable and his explanations were thorough and exhaustive. We totally recommend his walk and would place it in the not-to-be-missed category!

Response from Panos:

Allyn, thank you very much for your kind words!
