What you can expect

The Greek sociopolitical history is very extensive, even history books don't get to cover all the details surrounding the social movements of the past 50 years. That's why this tour is perfect for those that wish to learn about this topic straight from the source, the local source.

See it for yourself by visiting important places that influenced these social upbringings and hear details and historical facts from me, a local that knows all about Greece's history and political movements.

Learn about the Junta regime in 1973-1974 and the 7 years of dictatorship the country went through. At the end, you'll understand more how the sociopolitical changes throughout the Greek territory influenced greatly the lives of the local and migrant populations.

Athens has become an incubator of social movements and broader struggles and I want to show you how and where all of that happened.

On this tour, you'll stroll around the city center, while at the same time, strolling around the last 50 years of the city's history.

Have in mind, that the tour, can be 100% personalised, and you can feel free to contact me and ask for any changes on the route!
