Context Travel, which offers educational walking tours in 22 cities, unveiled a three-hour Greek Crisis walking tour that aims to explain the Greek economic crisis in layman’s terms.
The tour takes in key sites in Athens related to the crisis, such as Syntagma Square, site of major protests against government-imposed austerity measures, the Central Bank of Greece and the Old Stock Exchange.
“This is one of the most exciting tours we've launched in the last several years,” says Context co-founder Paul Bennett. “I hear all the time from our clients who visit Athens that they want to meet a local financial person, an economist, who can explain the Greek situation. They want to engage with a teacher on the ground who can help them make sense of the headlines.”
The Greek Crisis is priced from about $94 per person; group rates also are available.
