When Greece is mentioned, the first things that come to most people’s minds are ancient cities and people either fighting a war or discussing Agora, a popular meeting place. Of course, images of stunning beaches and people partying also come up, but they belong to the modern way of life.
Greece is a country where people who are interested in history and culture go to. Lofty concepts like democracy and philosophy were born there. It goes without saying that not every ancient Greek was right and moral, but they set the foundation for future generations to develop and evolve.
Thus, Greece is an excellent country to plan an educational tour. As you can guess, just sending people there is not enough for them to assimilate the rich history of the country. This is why you will find 4 useful tips below.
Tip 1: Hire an experienced tour operator
The secret to any kind of planned tour, including an educational one, is to hire a tour operator who knows the particular area like the back of their hand. The educational tours in Greece by Travelway Europe ensure that travellers will get to see and learn about significant places, events and items that have made history. These include items of both historical and cultural importance. It should be stated that operators who can impart knowledge in the most fun and effective way possible usually accompany travel groups on their trip.
Tip 2: Find out the interests of the group
When the number of travellers in a group is big, which is usually the case when it comes to educational tours, it is understandable not to be able to learn and accommodate everyone’s interests. It would make a great impression however if you took into consideration the interests of the majority of the group. Adding activities that you know that will excite most of the travellers guarantees that they will have a blast during this trip and they won’t want it to end.
Tip 3: Don’t forget breaks
Learning about history and culture is fun, but travellers will need to take a break at some point in order to take all the new information and stimuli in and to clear their heads before going on with the tour and learn even more stuff. Additionally, this is their chance to have a look at the way contemporary Greeks go on with their everyday life.
Tip 4: Add fun activities
Going to museums and archeological sites are a must while visiting any country in the world, but it is important to ensure that travellers will not get bored. Making the tour as interactive as possible helps travellers remember what they’ve listened to. Many history-related places have incorporated multimedia in order to make the experience as immersive as possible. A good idea to ensure that everyone has understood everything at the end of a singular tour is to gather the whole group and discuss what they’ve just learn.
