What you'll do

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 tour is meant to have the flow and information-heavy experience of a documentary. It takes us into a comprehensive analysis, providing surprising answers.

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.

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 visit will be totally personalized, with a group of a maximum of 4 people.  Feel free to contact me for a date and hour that suits you best.

Looking forward to having you over :)

I am a storyteller of social issues and politics. I have a background in both: I am a Political Scientist and co-founder of a media startup.

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.

Where you'll be

The happy but conscious traveler will explore Greek politics in a microcosm.

It combines a visit to the most important institutional spots with Exarcheia, renowned for being Athens' historical core of radical political activism.

Through a walk, you will be able to understand how each public space, buildings, and graffiti pieces relate to the past and current situation of Greece.

This is one of the off beat tours which would be definitely recommended if you want to know and deppen your understanding regarding socio-political dynamics with the interplay of insightful historical and cultural backgrounds. Isaac's knowledge about the Greece's Politics is profound and incisive. He would take you to the roads of complexities behind the political landscapes and tries to narrate in simpler way and more importantly objectiveily ... At the end of the tour you would get the bigger picture of the Greece, why it is the way it is...
