Few visitors get a chance to visit the coast of Athens. Riding a bicycle through the city and to the coast is the best way for an active visitor to take in the sights. Take a bicycle and a helmet and peddle past the Parthenon and to the Saronic Bay with your guide. Enjoy leisure time at the Flisvos Marina and stop at the ancient Kerameikos cemetery.

With ancient highlights packed into the compact center, Athens is perfect for exploring by bike, but plentiful hills and busy streets make it a challenge to find a safe, comfortable route through the city. Pedal alongside a private guide on a half-day Athens bike tour that’s designed to skip steep hills, using quiet streets for a leisurely exploration of the Acropolis Hill, Greek and Roman Agora, Panathenaic Stadium, and more.

Athens by bike is a wonderful way to cover a lot of ground in a shorter period of time. Our guide, Erietta, was witty and knowledgeable. She also sent us valuable info on restaurants and attractions. Thumbs up for Avocado, a fabulous vegetarian/vegan option.

We had a great time on the Coastal bike ride. Our guide, Danae, was lovely and provided very tasty treats along the way. This is a pretty easy ride to the water with one hill that we walked up towards the end of the ride.

The Good Morning tour is similar to the Scenic Tour except the GM tour leaves 1.5 hours earlier, does not include a coffee break, and is a little less expensive.
