I cannot recommend this tour enough. We were a little nervous to be biking through the busy city, however, our guide, Kostas, made sure we were always safe. Kostas was an incredible guide and gave us the best experience by giving us a brief history of the sites. Biking was an amazing way to see the city and I would recommend doing this tour on the first or second day of your Athens trip! We did it our first full day and got so many great recommendations for the rest of our time in Athens.

My wife and I were on a short break to Athens and wanted to make the best use of our time in the city: Athens Scenic Bike Tour was the perfect medium for doing so. The operation is very slick; the RVP/office was immaculately clean and well presented staff. The bikes/helmets are well maintained and more than capable of the job. Prior to commencing we were given a safety brief by personnel and a summary of what the ride would be like and the itinerary over the anticipated 3 hour duration of the tour. My wife/soulmate/boss, though physically fit, is an entry level cyclist, and had concerns re her cycling competency for the tour, however, any fears she had re the experience were soon allayed by our guide Costas. Costas was /is a delightful fella: humourous, knowledgeable with excellent communication skills. The tour itself ticked all the boxes; travelling through and past go-to tourist attractions and the ground we covered via bike would have taken us days to walk otherwise. I found the experience to be completely safe and wouldn’t hesitate to encourage ‘non-bikers’ to give it a bash! In addition to Costas’ archaeological input we were provided with recommendations re Athens’ restaurants and bars. In summary; it was great.

What a great experience - goes a lot faster than you would think. Our tour guide Kostis was amazing, leading the group efficiently through many of the great sites of the city. We took the 10am tour which included a stop for some local ice cream and the changing of the guards at the presidential palace. Would recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your stay in Athens as it helped orient us to the city and the locations of many the attractions. Kostis was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and even reached out via email to provided some suggestions for the islands we were visiting later in the trip.

Our bike tour with Kostas was one of the highlights of our trip (other than the amazing local food!). Big smile, great energy, Kostas is full of tips and anecdotes about the city and its history. Clearly passionate, he followed up the tour by sending us very useful guides by email. 4 other lovely couples were on our tour (Atlanta, SF, NY, Amsterdam). I highly recommend this experience to anyone on a short stay looking to optimize your time and understanding of this amazing city. Kostas is a jewel!

We started early on Monday morning. Though the streets were as packed as they could get, Andreas (our EXCELLENT guide) made us feel safe and gave us tips on how to behave so we could blent in as locals. We’ve been in Athens so many times, but this particular tour gave us a different look on various things and places. Andreas (as a true local) gave us his point of view on things. Shared personal experiences he had in every single part of the route we followed. He was well prepared, really enthusiastic and anyone could tell how he loved and enjoyed what he was doing. The bikes were in very good condition and the helmets were cleaned before they were given to us. Totally recommended especially if you are new to Athens. Take this tour early during your stay there, so you get familiar with the city center and all the major places and points to see so you can plan the rest of your stay.

We did the morning bike tour and our guide was Demetrius (sp?) and he was great. It’s not a historical tour which they were clear about but it’s a great first or second day activity because you really get a lay or the city and he pointed out great spots for food, drinks and sunsets for the remainder of the city. Also, if going durning covid times- you don’t need to wear a mask while biking which is nice.

We arrived yesterday to find the 1330 tour was canceled due to heat. We had a miscommunication and ended up doing a private tour for more money rather than the 35e tour. However, Constantino was AMAZING. He spent such an incredible amount of time going over details and finding the perfect (shaded!) spots not to mention taking great pics that my husband couldn’t fight me on and smiled in all of them. I couldn’t recommend this tour and him more!

It is a highly recommended trip which will makes you feel so satisfied and give you so much energy and enthusiasm to explore Athens.
It is not tiring at all and includes enough stops to refresh and enjoy sightseeing. Through the trip you will receive great tips about food, restaurants, locations, activities...etc.
Kostas even made this trip better with his sense of humor and great tips and stories.
My Recommendation: if you are booking Athens Scenic Bike Tour try to book it in the beginning of your stay in Athens to get the most benefit of the tips and city orientation which will make it easer to explore and choose your upcoming activates.

We did the city bike tour, which was around 4-5 miles of cycling. Its all at a very very easy pace with plenty of stops so anybody and everybody can do this tour!

You will get a great overview of the different areas of Athens. What's good about them and where you should visit. It really does set you up for the rest of your trip. We ended up visiting areas we would never have known about if it wasn't for the bike tour.

We loved it so much that the next day we went to book the coastal tour but it was sold out for a week... So my tip, just book it now!

Special shout out goes to Kostas. Who is incredibly knowledgeable but knows how to deliver it depending on the audience. Splendid chap and made the tour for us :)

My teenage daughter and I did this tour on our first morning in Athens. What a brilliant way to begin! Dimos was our wonderful guide - relaxed, knowledgable, funny and open - leading our group on a wide-ranging route that provided fantastic views, amazing street art, and all the promised Athenian sites. The pace was perfect, so we covered lots of ground without feeling rushed or getting tired. All in all, a brilliant morning that also left us with lots of ideas about how to spend the rest of our time in Athens. Highly, highly recommended!
