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 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 had an amazing time cruising Athens with Manos as our guide. He was an excellent guide, and the tour is a great way to cover a lot of Athens. We would come back in the future, so much fun:). 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...

Having just a short stay in Athens and as my knees were acting up we called around to Manos at Athens by Bike shop to see if we could get a couple of bikes for a few hours, Manos remembered us immediately from our previous visits there and welcomed us as old friends. He provided us with 2 bikes immediatly... More

Athens by Bike saved our trip to Greece! My boyfriend and I were planning to rent a scooter or motorcycle to see the city on the two short days we were in town, but when we arrived, it was Sunday and all of the motorcycle/scooter rental places were closed. Athens by Bike is normally closed on Sunday as well, but... More

Manos was awesome. Despite him feeling a little under the weather he still showed us an amazing time covering all around the acropolis and surrounding areas. Communication was as simple as emailing our route and private excursion preference and showing up ready to go. Would recommend this venue to anyone ready to have fun with some learning thrown in!

Manos was very helpful and even adapted our bike trail to accommodate the younger ages in our group. Athens at night is not the most safe area, but he provided a very safe and fun experience for our group of 8. He took us to see a wonderful view of the Parthenon. He brought us up a hill to see...

I was in Athens for a conference and from my schedule only had a few hours to see the city and get in a bike ride. I had started corresponding with the owner Manos a few weeks before my trip so by the time I arrived he knew exactly what I needed. He fitted my mountain bike with a bottle... More
