I thought Dr. Stathis' classes were excellent.  He obviously loves Greece and is very knowledgeable.  I enjoyed every minute of information and his enthusiastic presentation.  Superb!

I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Stathis' class about Greece!  He did a wonderful job of connecting the ancient and the modern and presenting the lifestyle of Greeks very well, particularly for those who haven’t been there.

More Revews and Testimonials
I so looked forward to this class! The Powerpoint presentations were great and much more than just a "tour" discussion. Motivated me to return to Greece--booked a tour! 
A+.  A very well constructed, balanced, and entertaining narrative. Excellent use of many sources and visuals to explain the relevant timeline, geography, and historical figures. Clearly distinguished the sources, facts, conjecture, alternative interpretations, and personal opinion, when tying together a provocative theory that Santorini could be Atlantis.
A wonderful course with such a knowledgeable facilitator. I wish the course had been 6-weeks because Greek contributions are so abundant. Great balance of videos and discussion was effective.
Superb presentations. It was clear the instructor is well versed in the subject matter.
Dr. Stathis is a great ambassador of Greece.
The class was one I anticipated!
Dr. Stathis knows and lovingly shares his topic.  Enthusiastically presented with beautiful imagery. He is a treasure chest of knowledge.
First class & passionate about the topic.  Dr. Stathis is great and engaging. 
Knowledgeable about Greek history, the culture and shares interesting stories.
Outstanding class.
Good materials, leadership and discussions.
