athenscope culture walks. a few words
Demetrios Karalis has designed and offered the free walking tours of the city sightseeing Athens since 2013.
These free walking tours (“the origins of democracy” and “the secrets of the parthenon“) gained fame and respect and have had excellent reviews on tripadvisor etc. The response of the people who joined the tours was the main reason that they survived and thrived, and that is what gave us the motivation to keep up with the hard work.
Demetrios thinks that these walks, should not be a touristic product, but a cultural one instead, non-exclusive, but inclusive and open to all who wish to get a deeper grasp of the landscape, the history, and the significance of the Athenian culture. Free, interactive education through fun and exploration in Athens? Yes, it’s time for Athenscope.
