Alexia was a wonderful guide. In two hours she gave us an excellent overview of the history leading up to Socrates and Plato, the changing thoughts that defined the different eras, and major contributions of the philosopher and his students. We loved standing in the area of the gymnasium and considering what it might have been like. Over coffee, we enjoyed learning, talking, and discussing ideas and writings of Plato about his teacher. Thank you to Alexia and Context tours!
The guide and tour is great Will suggest to make easier the way back
Everything fine. The meeting was easily booked, guide (Alexia) arrived on time and was very pleasant and informative. Also thought-provoking. We had an enjoyable and worthwhile meeting.
