“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Dialogue In The Dark is a unique experience, which allows you to venture and explore around the city of Athens using all other senses apart from sight. We could hear, touch feel or smell, and value the beauty of the city in a different way. It’s an amazing experience you'll never forget. Don’t miss it

“A different view of the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

I visited Dialogue in the Dark a few weeks ago and it was an incredible experience. It is a unique exibition, hosted at Badminton Theater, where visitors get a tour of Athens in complete darkness (Yes, You won't be able to see anything). Assisted by a visually impaired guide, You will feel very familiar right from the start. You will get around with ease and have a lot of fan. Dialogue in the Dark, aims to raise public awareness on vision impairment but it also, offers a different approach on entainterment. It is accessible for everyone, including people with disabilities, pregnant women and the ederly. The tour is offered in many languages. Guide-dogs are welcome.

“An Incredible Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

If you are in Athens DO NOT MISS DIALOGUE IN THE DARK. I could not have anticipated the incredible experience of my walk in complete darkness despite the amazing things I have heard about this world famous project. It was an unparalleled opportunity to close my sight to open my mind and other senses to the people and the world around me. Although we were inside an exhibition hall, we were taken through the city streets and parks of Athens. The replication of sound, touch and smell were so strong I kept reminding myself that I was not actually outside in the city. My groups guide was a blind Greek man fluent in English guiding us through his world of darkness with such lighthearted fun that what I had feared would be a somber experience was truly delightful, invigorating, exciting, heartwarming, mind opening – a time I will never forget. I urge anyone who may have doubts to give it a try. It is amazing!
