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.
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
