I recently lead a party of 3 teachers and 30 students aged 16-18 from the UK to Athens and we took part in two experiential workshops run by Hellas Revival (Plato and Democracy). The sessions were lively and fun, very interesting to the students and highly participatory. The level was pitched just right for our group's age and existing knowledge. Our students certainly learned a lot, really took part in the engaging activities, and we have had great feedback from them. Fluent English was spoken by the facilitators who ran the sessions really well, as a teacher I know how challenging it can sometimes be to engage young people but they made it look easy. To have a philosophical debate at the site of Plato's Academy, or take part in a simulation of Athenian democracy in the place where it took place in the ancient world, is so special. The surroundings were beautiful and steeped in history. We will certainly aim to include Hellas Revival workshops in future trips by our institution to Athens. Thanks Olga, Eva and Alex!

Amazing experience, we all loved it! It is a fun and educational activity and I highly recommend it for families with teenagers as ours. My son proved himself a great orator, while my daughter surprised us with her solid arguments. It was definitely the best couple of hours that we spent together as a family in Athens.

Unique and authentic experience, we got substantial information on how politics evolved until the birth of democracy 2500 years ago, and then we acted as citizens, spoke and took decisions and voted on ostrakons! Olga was an amazing instructor she makes it look as if we knew many things already. The place is also wonderful, it is the real location where the ancient people gathered to vote, right opposite the Acropolis with great view.

Cannot recommend it enough! Beautiful location with Acropolis view, very close to Acropolis. The tour was amazing! Best thing my family did in Athens (3 teen girls) ! Learned a lot about the history, but most important in a fun way, we spoke, we voted, we took roles. My teens did not allow me to show the action pictures, but well I hope I gave an idea. The price is for 5 persons.

We had amazing time with Olga! The whole experience was engaging and awakening, Aristotle's philosophy was simply explained with examples from everyday life. Plus there is a brief historical introduction which explains a lot about ancient Athens' development.

If you are looking for an authentic experience, look no further.

Olga provided a wonderful experience as we took a journey into the minds of the great historic philosophers. The experience was well crafted with much interactive components. I especially enjoyed the exploration of virtues. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

This was a great activity for the kids. They learned fun facts about democracy in Ancient Greece. The setting, the content, and the length were just perfect. Thank you for this experience!

This is an unusual, engaging and fund cultural experience of connecting to ancient Athens through its philosophy and politics. We spent two hours with Alex, a philosophy grad student who also studies Ancient Greek and Latin languages, learning something about Plato and Socrates and the life of Athens. This is not a guided tour or a lecture. The idea is to get you doing some philosophical thinking while learning about Plato, his teacher Socrates and the Athenian world they lived in.

The Plato digital museum is a very small but excellently designed free museum which you visit as part of the experience.

All of this is very much off the beaten tourist track which adds another dimension to the experience - the ruins of the academy are in a small public park and have not been fully excavated. There were only a couple of Greek visitors there who said they had come to feel the atmosphere of Plato’s school.

If you have visited the acropolis as we did this offers a brilliant additional experience that offers something more intimate and participatory. Highly recommended for adults and kids equally.

Thank you for your kind words. It was an interesting experience for me as well, drawing connections not only with modern day life, but also modern art forms like cinema. I hope that you keep Plato in mind and continue your philosophical journey. Hope to see you again soon!

Best tour we had in Athens! Olga was amazing, explained the history of the 3 philosophers and also the virtues theory in a simple comprehensible way and we practiced it with examples. And we did that in the place of Aristotle's school, how cool is that!
