We cannot explain how much we loved this experience, in no small part due to the fact that we have made a lifetime friend with our guide, Bianca. Not only was she gracious enough to reschedule us after our flight was delayed, but she helped us get to our meeting place while we were jetlagged and late because our luggage was lost. The tour itself is fascinating, and easy to digest for the beginner philosopher or even the most advanced student of philosophy. Definitely something for everyone, and nothing was lost in translation; in other words, Bianca spoke flawless English and really was an outstanding representative of both her country and for her expertise! She is passionate, engaging and left us wanting more. Plus, we are now on Team Aristotle. My fiancé and I could’ve stayed the rest of the day simply because we enjoyed Bianca’s company so much. We will definitely return for another tour when in Athens again, and cannot encourage anyone reading this to opt for this unique tour!

This tour we did same day we arrived to Athens. It was amazing!! It was a great way to see some amazing places in Athens with such a lovely and knowledgeable tour guide named Bianca. She made our tour personalized and so much fun! She was so knowledgeable and kind and made us love Greece from the start of our trip!

We took a 4 hour tour with Effie and it was a wonderful experience. We went to many different historical locations in Athens while also learning about Greek philosophy. We highly recommend this experience for anyone that travels to Athens

We had the most beautiful evening with our local philosopher Bianca. We will never forget this day, we felt like we saw the soul and the heart of the city.

Bianca was fabulous, informed, gracious and enlightening. Highly recommend.
