About this tour

Refugee arrivals to Greece and Europe keep going. The media focuses intensely on the so-called ‘refugee crisis’ but often fails to mention why people have been forced to flee their countries.

This walk seeks to give you the chance to understand and observe first-hand their situation. Furthermore, we will draw parallels between what has happened in the history of Greece and what is currently happening in Syria, Afghanistan, and other countries of the wider region.

The idea is to make us realize that none of us are immune to turbulent times, that the refugees of today are escaping real danger. By understanding their situation, we can start to change our attitudes.

-Please note that this experience is not advised for the faint-hearted. Nothing is going to happen to you, but know what you are booking.

-Feel free to contact me for a date and hour that suits you best, and to create a combined program with my other experience called Athens Social and Political Walk.

 

Where You'll be

Victoria, Aghios Panteleimonas, Omonia, and Metaxourgio: An area full of abandoned neoclassical buildings and some of the most multicultural neighborhoods in Athens.

Please take into account that during the walk you will observe a certain degree of urban decay.

Fantastic experience with Isaac. He is a wealth of knowledge and insight, and has an incredibly valuable talent: he can communicate complex issues with nuance. 100% recommend to any visitor to Athens who is interested in starting to understand modern Greece and how it is a key player in contemporary geopolitics.

Isaac is one of my favorite people! His tours are unlike anything I’ve ever experienced and I could do them 100 times. Definitely don’t miss this on your trip to athens!

This was a topic that I’ve seen on the news before but it was interesting to see it first hand. It’s not a tour for everyone, most people just want to have fun and relax on holiday. Isaac really did a good job giving us a different perspective on life in Athens away from the touristy area to see how different communities exists in society. Overall a very well done tour.
