The tour with Dimitris was wonderful! Whenever we think back to our time in Athens, we always think back to this tour. Since most people tend to book the tour in the morning, we were actually alone with him in the evening and therefore had an individual private tour. He has a very large wealth of knowledge and can also offer amusing anecdotes about history, culture and everyday life. We received two great restaurant recommendations, among other things, we ate the best falafel we've ever had in our neighborhood! Many thanks also to the entire friendly team on site! Here you can book with a clear conscience and experience the city in a way that you would not have gotten to know otherwise. Melli & Alex

We was away on a work trip so had little time to explore Athens and googled ideas prior and decided on this one, it was super easy to find, a really fun, nice pace ride with costas being great with facts and answering questions along with tips for what and where to go after, highly recommended, we got to see everything we wanted and didn’t feel tired after.

Great way to explore the city. With Kostas we had a wonderful guide, knowledgeable, fun and very hospitable! We would repeat and recommend any time!

The best way to look around Athens. With a great informative ride. Good even for people who are not cyclists
