There are few professional guides like Smaro Touloupa: not only does she hold multiple advanced degrees apart from her professional license, Smaro is able to bring together the long and rich history and mythology of Athens into the contemporary life of one of the most vibrant European cities. From myths to history to contemporary politics and art, Smaro weaves a complex narrative that keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you cannot travel, the next best thing is to travel virtually to Greece with Smaro Touloupa.
I have been to Athens several times, but not for many years, unfortunately. So I was excited to see this beautiful city and hear about her from Smaro Touloupa who clearly is a knowledgeable and eloquent advocate for her city and country. I learned a lot, appreciating the orientation with maps and pictures that showed me places I knew and many I did not. I highly recommend this program to anyone and look forward to taking more tours with Smaro, whom I now feel is a friend. Thank you.
The talented Smaro Touloupa did it again! Her task to present Athens, ancient & modern, a rich, multilayered city was incredibly difficult; Yet she managed to take us by the hand & travel us through time and space: from the most iconic parts of the Ancient city to the unknown hidden gems of modern Athens with a smart, perfect paced lecture that made time fly by...I am going to be watching everything she does! Looking forward to Sunday when Smaro will travel us to Mykonos and Delos!!!!
