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.
