      Fun together with historical sights
      George our guide was really friendly and knowledgeable about Athens and passionate about the city. We really enjoyed our tour and gained some insights and saw some local historical sights that we had previously missed ourselves and had fun along the way. We would definitely recommend.

      A bike ride for memories
      This bike tour was amazing! The electric bikes made things easy, even for people with bad knees(me). It was awesome seeing the popular tourist sites at night and even other non crowded areas with spectacular views. The tour guide was informative and patient. It was definitely worth the price.

      Unique, Incredible Adventure by Night!
      What a fun adventure! This was one of the best tours I took anywhere, in any place & I travel a lot! The guide was so knowledgeable & fun, taking me to all the best spots. I already saw most of the spots by day in prior visits, but by night, it was a different & magical experience. Biking made it even more fun, because it felt like I was free-roaming the city vs being locked in a bus or car. If you want to try something different, that’s truly a special experience, this is the tour to pick!

      Athens Coastal Bike
      There were four of us on this ride. The bikes were excellent and we were provided with water. There is a cycleway to the coast with few roads to cross so it was very safe. We stopped on the way to talk about the communities we were passing and more recent history. We cycled through the marinas and along the coast. The water was tepid. We stopped at Stavros Niarchos Park and Cultural Centre in Kallithea and went up to the rooftop on the way back. We stopped at a bakery where they still hand make filo and we tasted a sweet and savoury selection. The cycling was easy with the ebikes and it is a gradual uphill on the way back. This is a great way to get out of the city and see a bit more in a short space of time.

      Best bike tour ever!!
      From the beginning of the tour to the end, our guide took amazing care of us and ensured that we were safe. He told amazing stories of the city and brought us to watch the changing of the guards which was spectacular

      Easy, fun and informative.
      I booked this tour without discussing with my family (husband and two active boys). They are fit, I am not! Their reaction when I told them was “meh”…their reaction after the tour “ that was the best thing we did on our whole trip”. The e-bikes are awesome and make it easy to get around. We did the tour on our first night in Athens and aside from it looking amazing, it also helped to orientate us with the city. Our group was small and friendly and our guide Vago was great, knowledgeable and accommodating. Highly recommended.

      Great e-bike tour!
      We thoroughly enjoyed our e-bike tour of Athens by night! Bikes were in good condition & easy to operate. Helmets were optional but were available & we wore them. George was a friendly, informative & funny guide, and we learned a lot on the tour. We especially liked the changing of the guard at the presidential residence! You will visit sights/views that tourists are unlikely to see otherwise. If you like to add a little exercise to your sightseeing this is a great choice! Definitely recommend!

      Must do when visiting Athens!
      We had never done a bike tour before but this was amazing! The tour guide was super helpful and knowledgeable . The bikes had a boost which help you go uphill which was much appreciated. Will now look for a bike tour on every city break that we go on! Super fun experience.

      Terrible!
      Over all the experience was terrible! Even though the views are amazing and the ruins look beautiful when lit up the experience is dampened by the rude and unfriendly tour guide/group leader vagelis/vago. I have been on hundreds of tours across the world but this person stands the top of the worst tour guides who are rude, arrogant and unfriendly! Can be better if he knew how to behave and speak as he is not fit to be in the service/travel industry.

      The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing (until you take this tour)
      This was one of the highlights of our trip to Athens. Super fun for our family of four (including two teenagers). It was the perfect mix of history for mom and dad, and "cool" active pace for the teenagers. Just the right dose of sights in the right amount (not too long at each stop but the right level of detail to get a feel for each) and our guide even took photos of our family. The bikes were easy to use and after a full day of walking around they were a nice way to keep the legs fresh, allow the fun to continue, and punctuate the day. We paid for a two-hour trip, and I wish we would have had three. Ask for Yota as your guide.

    We had a great E-bike tour with George our fantastic guide. Athens was in the middle of a heat wave so electric bikes were very much appreciated during our hill climbs (bikes were top quality). George, our guide, was fantastic and took us around the city center to show the most famous historic sites. We also witnessed the change of the Guard, avoiding the crowded Parliament by going for the Presidential residence instead (less crowded and some shade from trees). It was a very enjoyable tour, at a good pace but very relaxed. Athens is a busy city, with lots of traffic but for those that might worry about safety I must stress that the tour was conducted in small streets with low traffic so no worries there (and George was super safety conscious). At the end of the tour George gave us plenty of recommendations for local restaurants. A great tour and I would highly recommend using Natalie and George to discover Athens with the locals!! Thanks George and Natalie!

    Our bike tour with George was really fun! We biked early July on one of the first few days back for tourists. The biking was easy and we were able to get a really good feel of the city and get a good idea of what we wanted to do and see next. George was a great guide and provided a lot of good information regarding the historical sites. The changing of the guard was unexpected and really neat to see. At the end he laid out a map with really good restaurant and bar options. I highly recommend the tour! Wish we could have done another one :).

    We were scheduled for a night tour but were asked to join the 5 PM group since neither had enough participants. We are so glad to have made the change. Starting the tour in daylight gave us the opportunity to see so much more. Ending at sunset was simply beautiful, with well executed lighting on the Acropolis and other monuments.
    We were also fortunate to have Iota as our guide, genial, knowledgeable, accommodating. We enjoyed our time in Athens a great deal; there is so much to do but this tour was THE BEST thing we did while there. Don’t miss it.

    We love doing these bike tours as we feel they are a great way to get oriented with an unfamiliar city. This time was no exception. We covered a lot of ground on the tour - at the end our guide traced our route on a map and we were surprised how far we had travelled. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of insight into the places we visited, so we felt like we got a very good overview of the city. The bikes themselves worked great, so even on the steep hills we didn't have to pedal too hard. They also accomodated our two young kids (9 and 4) very well. Highly recommend.

    Brilliant.

    The whole experience was brilliant. From setting us up with the bikes to the detailed account of many of the important and historical sites of Athens.

    This was our first event of the holiday and it set us up for the next few days. Provided with a wide and rich overview of the city, our trip to the Acropolis and the evening walks/food/bars were accentuated.

    Our guide, Yusuf, was excellent and I know feel like I need an electric bike. This was a strong footnote to a holiday of a lifetime with my family.

    Great start to an excellent adventure

    This was my second time using Athens Electric Bike Tour and they did not disappoint. We had George (again) as our guide and he was terrific. Explained all the sites and even timed our tour so that we could see the changing of the guards. I would highly recommend this tour and George. It’s a must do for one of your first days in Athens - provides a great orientation and allows you to experience the perimeter of the city in addition to all the local tourist sites.
