What people are saying about Athens

Great fun! The actor set the scene and led the audience, as participants, through a set of scenarios. At each stage people asked questions to formulate their answers. The actor clearly enjoyed their role and imparted knowledge in a fun and informative way. Key to the enjoyment is the audience doing their part. Join in and you’ll have a great evening! At our show the most vocal and inquisitive was a young girl, proving this is something for all ages. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves at this show. The timing allows for drinks beforehand and plenty of time for dinner afterwards. Go and have fun, we did!

I really enjoyed this event. Truly I had no idea what to expect but once it got underway I found myself completely absorbed by it. The single actor set the scene and was an excellent performer. Pay attention from the off, and participate and you’ll thoroughly enjoy this murder mystery. It’s aimed at all ages, in the audience was a young girl, she picked up on way more than many others, and wasn’t shy in coming forward with ideas. Audience participation is the key and utterly encouraged. Jon have n and you’ll be well rewarded!!

You'll have a seat on the terrace below the Acropolis, the show played with this lighted background. It is mesmerizing. The hospitality is first class, tha actors and the short interpretations quite enjoyable. I would recommend as a must if you have a chance to attend. There are some adult verbal conetent in the show.

Loved it! Such a fun way to spend an evening and the actor was fab at getting you involved. Highly recommend it if you’re looking for something a bit different to do in Athens!

Brilliant show from start to finish. Great cast and lovely staff also. Phenomenal view of the acropolis. A great way to spend an evening in Athens.
