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. « less

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.

My girlfriend and I were only in Athens for a day and a half before heading to the islands so we thought this would be a good way to see some key historical sites in a fun way. We were not disappointed. It was fantastic. We met Manos at his shop and set off round Plaka and Monistariki, stopping at... More

My husband and I were only in Athens for three days so we booked two tours with Athensbybike (the Ancient Athens & Coastline tour). We were so glad that we booked these two tours. Manos and Tanya were great!!! They took the time to explain things to us and took us to places that we would have never been able... 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.

Our family LOVED our bike tour with Manos. Easy to find using Metro from the cruise ship port. Manos was very friendly, honest, and passionate about Greece. A guy who loves to bike in a city he loves. Our 9 and 11yr old children loved the 4 hour bike ride, not wanting it to end. We saw Athens from a... More

This was an amazing way to start our trip in Greece! Manos was an excellent tour guide and was very informative and caring throughout our ride. My friend and I were the only ones on the tour that day so we loved the personal feel! The tour helped us easily get acclimated to the Athens area and helped us navigate... More

Amazing bike tour of Athens with the unforgettable Manos. We cycled through the streets of Plaka and Monastiraki, visiting many of the famous sites. We were given brief history lessons along the way by Manos, who was great fun and full of knowledge. As we only had one evening in Athens, the Athensbybike 3 hour tour was a really fun... More

We traveled to athens for part of our honeymoon, and we told Manos that my wife has ancestors in greece... More

I was a bit skeptical to go by bike in Athens since I heard it is very busy traffic and lots of cars. However we were given a very soft and personal bike tour with mr Manos around Akropolis, old town, the hills etc. The best thing was the free feeling of gliding through the streets of Athens and easily...

He provided us with 2 bikes immediatly... More
