"Not only do you get to enjoy a pleasant walk up Philopappos Hill and take in the views of the Acropolis, you get to learn about Greek history and have a go at role playing the part of an ancient Greek soldier! It was a fascinating insight into the different battle strategies between the all conquering Persian empire and the defiant Greeks who were completely outnumbered, but not outsmarted. You get to try out some of the techniques employed using wooden replicas of shields and spears which was fun. Gregory the tour guide, was brilliant as firstly, he was very passionate and enthusiastic, and secondly, he didn't mind doing a one-to-one session with me as no one else had booked at the time I did, which was awesome!"..."
