Georgia was so fantastic, beyond expectations . The whole family was totally absorbed by the subject. The information was delivered in a very accessible way. We felt that we all have learned a lot during the visit.
My tour with Georgia was like an excellent college seminar - a true 2-way intellectual experience. She did a great job employing the Socratic method while discussing Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. The venue for this tour is in a residential neighborhood, not downtown. As a result, there are few taxis circulating nearby when the tour ends. Might be a good idea when sending confirmation and meeting instructions to customers to let them know in advance that Uber doesn’t operate here, so they should book a pick up taxi in advance.
This was an exceptional way to spend an afternoon in Athens. Georgia was knowledgeable and personable, and a great guide for our philosophical and actual wanderings in Plato's old Academic backyard. She probed and asked questions of us -- ah, we see what you are doing there, Georgia. Very Socratic of you. It was the perfect change from the lectures and speeches we'd been getting on our cruise all week. Thank you! We are very Happy that we had the opportunity to enjoy this tour.
