Manos responded quickly and was friendly, helpful, and gave us interesting insights into both modern and historical Athens. Highly recommended. Seeing it by bike sure beats sitting on a tour bus.

This bike tour was the highlight of our visit to Athens. It's a great way to see an overview of the city before you dig into all the historic sites.....and it's really fun!!!

I was blown away by this tour for many reasons but the one that stood up the most was the quality of the guide (I think his name was Manos). Wow, this guy was so knowledgeable and profesional.

Fantastic trip, great guides, great fun! I would do it again next time I am there! You can see not only archaeological or cultural things (which are great) but you also get great insider tips for things to do in the city. The pace is relaxed and it's great for people of every age and physical fitness.

Before we arrived to Athens I booked our tour. This was one of the best activities we did in Athens. We rode bikes for about 3 hours and we visited the main attractions around Athens. We were lucky that the weather was good and the ride was excellent.

Manos led me and my 20-year-old son around Athens for 3 hours. It felt like we saw everything! The bikes were comfortable, the pace was excellent, and the local recommendations were great. HIGHLY recommend this as a way to get a sense of everything the city has to offer - it's the perfect way to start a vacation in Athens.

I contacted them from the airport on my way, Manos reacted extra fast and I could always be sure that even there were no group tour available they didn t let me on my own. I met Christopher at the agreed time, he was super friendly and provided information on the city attraction in a very professional way but I... More

We've been on a three hours bike tour on Dec. 30. My husband, our daughter and I have been the only guests. Nevertheless we had two guides: Manos and Tiama. The guides are super friendly and well educated so that we learned a lot about Athens - not only about the history but also about modern Athens. There is certainly... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
