Owner description: 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.

“Athens by bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I do recommend visiting Athens by bike. Nice bikes, good price, near main attractions. It is better to call or email first to be sure that you will find the place open when going there (the owner can be outside guiding a group).

“The best tour and a fanstastic guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

we did the AMAP tour with Chris. The tour was for 3 hours and we extended for another hour to 4 for an additional 10 Euro. The guide was courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. We had a wonderful time and I would not hesitate recommending this to anyone visiting Athens.
Aside from the great tour and guide, the price was much more than fair and made our visit to Athens so much more enjoyable

“Best day ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Our family of five loved this tour with Manos. We arrived from a cruise and took the subway right to his door almost.
We happen to have a fifteen year old son with down syndrome and Manos was amazing with him. I was so pleased that our family with college age kids and Eli could spend the morning together sharing a beautiful day.
Not only did we see the most beautiful sights ,we learned more about Athens than I thought possible.
Manos is like a history teacher on wheels!
Please don't miss this when in Athens . The ride was easy and beautiful at every turn.
Thank you Manos. Renee Kerr

“MANOS is the BEST! Best Tour, ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We did the AMAP tour (approx. 2-3hours), and Manos was able to accommodate a time AND date change since our cruise ship had to change port dates due to the strikes in Athens. He was very courteous, professional and most importantly, knowledgeable about the tour sites and history of Athens. Not a difficult bike ride, very scenic and enjoyable. Many of the tour sites are unavailable by car and too far in length to do by walking. We were able to learn a lot about Athens in a short amount of time spent with Manos. He was very friendly and personable as if he was showing his friends in town the history of his city. He even recommended a delicious lunch spot serving Souvlakkis and Gyros. Thank you so much Manos for a wonderful tour experience!

“Great tour with brilliant guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed out 3 hour bike tour of Athens with Manos. It was the best way to see the sights of Athens and get a feel for the city at the beginning of our trip. We were able to access many places that would be impossible to get to by vehicle and the distance we covered would have taken hours by foot. Manos was knowledgeable and passionate about the history of his city and we learnt a lot as a result. The cycling was easy and the only gradients we had were gradual as we approach the summits of a few hills adjacent to the Acropolis - well worth the views and archeological sights though! We would highly recommend a guided tour of Athens with this company.
