Dimitris was a great tour guide and what a fun and entertaining way to see the historical monuments. The group we went in was all ages and the tour was a way to exercise while learning interesting history and getting information on the city from a local perspective. Wish we could do this again!

This was our first city bike tour and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. Dimitri was an excellent guide! It was a great overall tour of the most popular sights and helped us decide which places we wanted to return to explore a little more. It was a very enjoyable pace and traffic was not an issue. Dimitri timed it... More

Our favorite activity in Athens was taking this bike tour. The ride was easy (mainly on pedestrian streets), and we were able to cover all of the main sites around the Acropolis in a few hours. Our guide, Kostas, is a PhD student in modern Greek history. He was the best guide we had during our two week vacation. He... More

I've been on city bike tours in Barcelona, Copenhagen, Lyon and Lisbon before and Athens by bike was without doubt one of my favourites. The tour guide was immensely knowledgeable, personable and engaging which was an added highlight to the whole experience. Prior to the tour, I was slightly concerned about how much uphill cycling there would be in the... More

Before this bike tour, I have taken another tour of Athens sightseeing and have covered the most popular attractions. Yet, I felt this tour brought so much, by getting us to see Athens from different viewpoints, different angles. We got to see the Parthenon from an excellent photo point, was introduced to a exquisite sunset watching location which so few... More

In our recent Greece trip the three members of the trip were assigned the task of planning an activity in Santorini, Mykonos and Athens. Based on reviews the Athens by bike was selected. It is a great way to see and obtain history of the city by a knowledge filled guide covering much more ground and in a much more... More

While many of the sights of Athens are easily accessible by foot, taking the bike tour really made the city come alive. Kostas was so knowledgeable, there wasn't a single question we had that he couldn't answer. The biking was not as challenging as we feared, even with all the hills! We took in some amazing views, experienced some areas... More

In a little bit than more 3 hours you learn the most important things to know on Athens and its surburb, that help you to identify quickly the points of interest for you. And at the end you get some tips from the company. All of that... More

I took a bike tour of Athens on my first full day of my vacation. It was an excellent way to gain perspective of the city and get an overview of the major attractions. The bike tour guide was Dimitris who was very hospitable and willing to share all kinds of details about Athens and the culture. It felt as... 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.
