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.

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!

Allyn, thank you very much for your kind words!
