I have studied TOURISM MANAGEMENT and have lived in Athens for over 25 years.
I love ancient Greece, its philosophy and history, but mostly its free spirit. It's something magical and great for me.
I constantly study the history trying to get closer to their thinking and their knowledge. I try to learn from them and become a freer person too.

The two co host are both born in Delphi. Dimitris was study TOURISM MANAGEMENT and Anastasios was study at Hellenic Army Academy. They love history, the nature trekking the good food good wine and good company.

If you are wondering whether or not to book, go for it! You will have made the right decision. And above all, you will come away understanding the deeper meanings of Greek Antiquity. I couldn't have had this experience on my own and the host was very informative and kind. It was certainly beyond all my expectations during my holiday in Athens.

That was an awesome experience and I would definitely have it again without any second thoughts! The host is really communicative, well-informed and cheerful , so he made this beautiful trip even better! The trip starts with Elefsina, where the Elefsinian rituals took place in ancient Greece with main concept "life after death". There is actually an "underworld" path that Persephone took to meet Hades when he had her imprisoned! The host knows a lot of history about why Plato, Aristotle, Sophocles and many others were initiated in these rituals, as well as their evolution into the new religions like Christianity, Buddhism, etc. The next stop was Corinth Canal where you can literally overstuff your Instagram wall with numerous amazing pictures! The place is breathtaking so make sure you have enough space on your phone ;) After that we drove to the ancient Epidavros port and the host had another surprise for us. We went diving in the ancient sunken city of Epidavros , which left us speechless because the scenery is magnificent! The host will take for you some underwater pictures, so no need to worry! After swimming and diving we were really hungry and the host took us for a delicious traditional greek lunch by the sea. The fish and the spanakopita was by far one of the most unique flavors I've ever had!! Of course after lunch we visited the famous Epidavros Theater, where even nowadays theater plays take place! The host has a lot of storytelling about it. We also went to the temple of god Asklepios , the first medical center for psychotherapy, rejuvenation and mental wellness. The final stop after driving back to Athens is in Plato’s Academy, the first university of Athens. As significant as it sounds, there is not a lot of tourism there, so I'm not sure if I could find that by myself. It's really intriguing to walk at the same paths as Plato did 2500 years ago!! This airbnb experience is worth every penny and every minute of your vacation time, especially if you like the Ancient Greek world and its mysteries! But even if you're not a big fan, the host will make sure you'll become one ;)
