A great activity. We were the first time in Athens. There is no better way to see the city and the main sights. You enjoy the views, the weather, and the good company. Everything was fascinating. Especially remember the changing of the guard near the presidential palace. Our guide Dimos was just excellent. He talked about history, culture, and a lot of the ordinary life of the Greeks themselves. It is very interesting.

Great tour, great guide.
Fantastic small group bike tour of the main sites of Athens at a relaxed pace. Our guide Julio was friendly, informative and an all round good guy.
We not only enjoyed the tour but the email suggestions from Julio were very useful after the tour.
Make this the first thing you do in Athens, and use the hints/tips and knowledge of the guide to help plan your remaining time.

Magical experience!
Oct 2021
This sunset bike ride was so much fun! Julio was a wealth of information, and brought us to several sites we had not seen on our own walking the previous few days. We started off when it was still light, and as the sun set it got more and more fun. It was so much fun to ride after dark on the marble stone lanes past outside restaurants with their twinkling lights and fireplaces on--just magical!

Ride around Athens with Dimitris
Really enjoyed the ride and getting to know Athens. Dimitris took us to some interesting neighborhoods and shared great stories so we could get to know the city better. He was very personable and a good ambassador for the city.

Great overview of the city and where to explore
Oct 2021
This is a fun tour that gives you a good overview of the city of Athens. We covered a good amount of area and got a good feel of the city. Highly recommend this as the first activity when you arrive in Athens. Our guide, Dimitris, was excellent and gave us an enthusiastic take on the city. He showed us where to go and explore during the rest of our stay in Athens. At end of the tour, we are provided with some local recommendations via email as well.

Best Acropolis view spot
Sep 2021 • Solo
Exactly the way I like to experience foreign places - on a good bike, with a great local guide. Dimos is spot on with routing, stories, history and photo ops.
Great value activity! If I’d had more time, I would sign up for all of their tours!

This is a most if you are visiting Athens. Our tour guide was Dimos and he was very informative, knowledgeable and funny. We felt that we learned a lot about the city from a great tour guide and Athens native. Dimos gave us some great recommendations as to what to do and see in the city and stayed in touch with us after we left Athens in order to give us some more recommendations. 5 stars

Ideal way to spend time getting to know the city highlights.
Oct 2021 • Solo
Kostas was a wonderful guide!!! Likely the best and most enthusiastic tour guide I have ever ridden with. He knows the town and moves you through it with confidence and ease. I learned more about Athens highlights riding with Kostas in three hours than had I spent a week walking around. He was very engaging with any questions I/we had.

I highly recommend taking a ride with a bike around Athens! If you’re lucky you might get Kostas as a guide.
