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 experience is aimed at people with a genuine social and political interest and those keen to learn more about the situation in Greece by conducting some first-hand research.

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

I'm a Political Scientist and a storyteller.

I always try to find unique ways of putting pieces together. I want all to feel what’s going on either through revealing the secrets or examining in detail. By delivering deep insight with a light touch. By taking a global view. By pushing beyond predictable opinions and formats to inform, engage, challenge, and entertain.

An essential tour if you're at all interested in the modern Greece and the forces that have created the country as it is today! I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this tour but booked based on the good reviews and the fact that I really wanted to learn more about Greece's complicated situation. (And I live here, so also to learn more about the forces that have shaped the communities I live in). It was so good! Super interesting and Isaac does a great job making what is a complex topic easy and interesting to understand. The time flew by. We went on a chilly winters day, but it was good to be moving around and Isaac took care to make stops in the sunshine so we could warm up. The tour takes place in noisy, busy central Athens but Isaac stops in quiet places to give the main updates on the story so you can get all the details. Just bear in mind that in some places you have to cross busy roads and content with jostling people on pavements. But honestly, it's a chance to see a "real" side of Athens. I finished this tour feeling so energised to try and learn more, and can't wait to go on some of his others. Thanks Isaac!

Isaac is very knowledgeable and passionate about this subject. I learned a lot about both Greece’s early years, history, culture and how the recent financial crisis has shaped its contemporary politics. Highly recommend.

This was flat out a great experience. Isaac knows his material extremely well and has put together a story in an order that makes it easy to get a solid grasp of a complex political situation. His delivery is natural, but this is a well-polished tour. Book it!
