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

Our family ( kids ages 10 & 8) really loved the athens by bike tour. Manos does a super job of giving the riders a personable and in-depth tour of not only the landmarks of Athens, but his favorite spots. He timed our ride perfectly for the changing of the guards. We also liked his laid back approach to ensuring... More

I absolutely recommend to see Athens by bike with this tour company. It was a perfect way to see many sights in a fun way coasting around the city. It doesn't feel dangerous at all since most of the places we go to our side streets. There's only a few places where you have to cross a busy street but... More

Manaos was an absolutely wonderful guide. We had to reschedule our tour due to lost luggage and he was very understanding and flexible especially considering it was Christmas eve. Since when we were finally able to do the tour we had already seen most of Greece's major attractions, Manaos asked if we would like to see the coast. it was... More

Dear L. thank you very much for your review. I enjoyed our ride at the coast very much and I hope you felt more like locals than tourists...:) The name is actually Manos :). I can't imagine what would happen if I would tell you my last name which is 11 letters long and it's not as easy as "Papadopoulos"...... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time with Manos on our A.M.A.P. Private Tour, it definitely was the highlight of our Athens trip. Manos was a fantastic guide - he's extremely knowledgeable, has a great personality, professional but still very fun, and is full of interesting information about the sites. After we met Manos at his shop, he set... More

We went on a tour of ancient Athens with Manos and it was exactly what we were hoping it would be. He took us all around to see the ancient sites, gave us interesting information at every stop, and really helped us to imagine what it must have been like back then. We also got a great overview of the... More

Manos, owner and guide, makes this already great activity even better. He is kind, funny and takes great care of his tours. We had a private tour for our family, during which he kept everyone entertained and involved. He set us up on bikes, purchased water for us and off we went. He has fascinating tid-bits of information and shares... More

Thank you Manos. You were the most kind, generous and professional guide we could have hoped for. I cannot recommend this experience in Athens more. A slightly nervous crew started out and by the end, we were completely in our zone, all thanks to Manos.
