How did the ‘cradle of democracy’ become the ‘basket case of Europe’? The question may be crude and offensive, but it captures the essence of much thinking around the globe in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.This interactive storytelling walk is meant to have the flow and information-heavy experience of a documentary.

It takes us into a comprehensive analysis, providing surprising answers.It highlights the social and political elements of Greece, from the creation of the Greek state to modern times. We’ll address both historical and current events from a balanced & non-biased point of view to help you determine your views of this land for yourself.

-The duration of this experience is between 2h30mins and 3h30mins depending on Q&A.

-Feel free to contact me for a date and hour that suits you best, and to create a combined program with my other experiences (Understanding the Refugee Crisis and Awful Athens).

This tour was riveting from the first moments to the end. Isaac’s relaying of his depth of knowledge, gained through years of continuous serious study, gave meaning to & brought the landscape, monuments, graffiti & places to life, with humour and engrossing storytelling. We felt so fortunate to be able to access this social political history, delivered in a digestible & memorable way, during such an enjoyable and fascinating walk. Loved every second.

Understand Greece in two and a half hours!

Isaac was a fantastic communicator, able to encapsulate historical events, personages and issues in a few insightful sentences. All seamlessly woven together so that he could move back and forward in time and across issues without losing you! At the end I felt like I had just digested several books on Greek history.

I loved my visit with Isaac. An original way to discover Athens and Greek political life. We were 5 participants from different countries and Isaac skillfully made the connection with his subject by drawing parallels with our respective countries. Isaac is adorable and funny, he puts us at ease and he's a real storyteller who makes this discovery never boring. A great discovery, intelligent and exciting and a great time with new friends. Thank you Isaac!
