Save Magas: The Modern and Ottoman side of Athens

Athens, Greece

(2 customer reviews)

In the early 20th century, the princess of the royal family of Iraq visited Rhodes and fell in love with a poor Greek musician of rebetiko songs. The two lovers run away together and secretly wed in Athens, inciting the anger of the Sultan, who was determined to do anything to keep them apart. Eventually, the Sultan found Magas, the Greek musician, and imprisoned him in a secret facility in the heart of Athens. Join Princess Flame on her quest to liberate Magas and unravel the hidden corners and secrets of both Ottoman and modern Athens!

*Based on a true story that captured headlines in the newspapers of its time. This story also served as the inspiration for the 1936 song “Εgo thelo prigipessa” (I want a princess), composed by the renowned musician of rebetiko, Panagiotis Toundas.


This is a hybrid game, so you’ll use the Narratologies app to discover places, read stories, and solve riddles to discover your next stop. Along your way, you will meet our treasure hunt facilitators, who will assist you with the game play and offer you tasty local Greek goodies. 

The Big Winners receive special offers from local designers and creators.

    The ultimate activity for groups visiting Athens! Massive thanks to Floga, our lovely belly dancer character, who did an excellent job of providing relevant information and insight into the history of Athens/Greece and the mission of the Tour. Every detail, made the treasure hunt enjoyable for all the time that we were playing. A new way to see the city!

    Floga was really friendly and shared so much information and in a fun and exciting way. It was amazing for the children (ages 7 and 11) and adults as well. Highly recommended it, it is a really fun and interactive way to discover Athens city. Also enjoyed the snacks, really kept everyone going!
