In a couple of hours we were taken through the highlights of Athens. Many stories were shared with us. The bikes were really good and could easily be adjusted to your own size.

My son & I did a relaxed bike tour of Athens in June & really enjoyed the experience. The riding was not too strenuous & we enjoyed the pedestrian areas that one would not be able to visit by car. Overall highly recommended for an overview of the city from some amazing viewpoints

This bike tour was awesome! My family is Greek, and I have been multiple times. This bike tour was still worth it! Brought my wife to Greece for the first time, and we had a blast on the bike tour! Would be great for your first day or two in Athens because they show you where a lot of the... More

I love cycling anyhow - but getting to know a city by bike (instead of tedious tour buses or struggling with maps and public transport to get around) is a fun and relaxed way of strolling! We were led by Kosta - a very open and friendly man - who provided us with so much more than mere touristic attraction... More

With just a days notice, we were able to book the 1700 city tour and it ended up being just our family of 5. Manos (owner) had bikes of all sizes to fit our 10-15 year olds. Linda was our guide and we really enjoyed seeing the sights and learning some history along the way. The biking was in well... More

We enjoyed our Athens by Bike tour so much. It was easy to get in touch with them and schedule the tour, even though it was just the day before. Their office is very conveniently located near the Acropolis Metro stop. We were taken to so many sites, including many we hadn't seen though we'd been touring Athens on our... More

We did this bike tour on the morning of our first full day in Athens. Easy to find the start location- friendly and knowledgeable host Dimitris who made sure that all of us got the information that we wanted about Athens. It is clear he loves the city and could answer all our questions. The cycling was all pleasant and... More

My family and I had a fun tour with Dmitris which was also very informative! My children are 8 and 10 years old and they had no problem keeping up! We did the tour our first morning in Athens so it was a great introduction to the city! Dmitris gave us suggestions of things to see while we were in... More

We just returned from an amazing experience by Athens bike tour. We chose to do the coastal tour which was an amazing way to see more of the outskirts of the city and less touristy areas. We were able to see the incredible coastline of Athens. Our tour guide took a very personalized approach to making it an experience that... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
