This was a truly excellent tour. Panos explained the concepts in a way that was very entertaining and understandable. He used each point to build on the last and prepare for the next, and we could tell that as well as having a lot of knowledge about his subject, he also cares about it very much and that was clear to see. As well the route of the walk took us to some less obvious places such as Pnyx and Keramikos which are very connected to the theme. One of my favourite tours, and Ive been on a few.

One of the best walking tours ever done. Tour was done by a gentleman named Panos. Due to less tourism this year I was the only 1 attendee and still he did the tour just because I had booked it advance. He shared knowledge on philosophy, science , democracy and etc. The most intellectual conversation I ever had on a walking tour. It’s a must tour to know Athens and it’s roots. You will see Athens and Greece from a very different perspective. A MUST DO

presenting a great ancient civilization and history, in a particular limited time, requires a professional with documented and deep knowledge of the involved aspects (history, Philosophy, Politics, Art & Sciences) . If you add the effective communication, enthusiasm and humor, you complete the image of Panos and the impression of an unforgettable & highly recommended walk.

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.
