We were treated to a personal guided tour since we were the only clients. The pace was up to us as well as the sites we wanted the visit. The guide was more than accommodating and waited for us without rush. Very pleasant and relaxing experience.

The electric bike was great. Makes you think you're an accomplished cyclist going up steep inclines. Effortless mostly. Highly recommended.

It was a great tour around Athens - and the bikes quality is great and our guide was very helpful and some how informative. BUT - I had an idea that the e-bikes are like scooters where you don't put much effort - which is not totally true - you will go up a great hill that you will feel very sore if you are not used to bikes especially saddle are not that comfortable .

I can't complain it was nice 4 hours but I felt sore for a whole day after

Dear Ahmed, thank you so much for your review!
Our company offers high quality electric bicycles – not scooters – that means that you still have to cycle! Our e-bikes are equipped with Bosch engines offering 4 different levels of electric assistance (plus the usual speed levels all bicycles have) offering the cyclist the choice to cycle with whichever speed feels more comfortable. Your guide would have been more than happy to change your bicycle saddle, to have a smoother ride!
Hope to see you again!

We ( 1 x 60 something couple and 1 x late fifties man friend) met our guide Irene at their shop in central Monastariki Square where she fitted us out with great bikes and gave us an overview of the tour and traffic issues we would encounter for the next four hours The Ebikes made it possible to ascend substantial heights easily to enjoy fabulous views over Athens and partake of a cold beer along the way. Irene was a great guide..passionate, articulate in excellent English and stopped frequently to explain the highlights which included the historic monuments and the changing of the guard outside the Parliament..a must see if you can. I had a small technical problem with my bike but it was replaced quickly and on we went. We'd left our cameras behind but Irene happily took the pics we wanted and emailed them through to us. This business is well organised and efficient ....none of those stupid radio earpiece communications! Highly recommended for anyone looking for an enjoyable overview of Athens with only a few hours available. Well done Irene for a fantastic tour.

What a way to see Athens! We were the only two registered for the day, so we had our own private guide. She was fantastic and gave us all sorts of interesting facts at every stop. The e-bikes were super easy to ride and the electric assist allowed us to even climb to the top of Mount Lycabettus with little effort. The tour hits up most of the popular spots. And while you don't necessarily get admission to the sites, you really don't need it. It's a wonderful tour - so glad we did it!
