Owner description: The fastest easiest and safest way to navigate many places in Athens that you can't in any other way. You can either choose one of our escorted rides or just rent a bicycle and explore our amazing city on your own.Athens is transforming into a bike friendly city. In the center of the city around the Akropolis a huge archaeological park has been built with many paths and pedestrian streets. With a bike, you can relax, enjoy and explore the backstreets of Athens. Using a bike you'll able to reach locations that you can't in other ways and time consuming if you do it on foot. Many more interesting sights can be visited, giving you more time to admire and take pictures of important ancient monuments that are found around Akropolis.

My family and I (including 2 teenager girls age 14 & 16) wanted to see Athens differently instead of a standard walking tour so we went on a bike tour with AthensByBike. Vassilis was our tour guide and he had been very good in providing information on Athens and covered a lot of sights surrounding Acropolis. We are not very... More

I went for a bike tour with my sister and a friend who both came from Germany. Kostas our guide was very friendly and he gave us very interesting information about Athens.\ Its worth doing this as you can see a lot of places in a short time.

Had an easy but thoroughly enjoyable Sunday morning ride which included the market, shopping areas and, most significantly, the park around the Acropolis. Our guide was fantastic - very friendly and informative - both my wife and I loved her! This was a short tour, but if you want a change of pace in Athens you will enjoy Athens by... More

Manos is the nicest and friendliest person in a nation of friendly people. He went out of his way so much on our last visit to Athens. i count myself lucky to meet one of the most genuine person I have ever met. If you are in Athens take time out to say hello to him.

We were not disappointed. It was fantastic. We met Manos at his shop and set off round Plaka and Monistariki, stopping at... More

Thank you Manos! With an excellent and friendly guide, we saw all the highlights of Athens. The bikes are well maintained, and the price very reasonable. I love bike tours, and this is one of the best I've been on. Highly recommend while you're in Athens.
