One of the best tour that we did in Athens. Being able to bike near the most beautiful historical sites of the city is quite an experience. The guide was very helpful and explained us a bit about the city and its attractions. Very good introductory tour to the city.

This was the first activity I did in Athens and I’m so glad I did! It gave me a good idea of where I wanted to go during my stay and which areas to come back to after the tour. I bookmarked a couple places for later and had a good idea of where things were because you go all over the city but it doesn’t feel far because you’re biking. Definitely recommend going on this tour on the first day!

Discovering a city by bike is great fun; we did this in Rome too. This way you get a quick overview of the sights. We had a nice guide, good bikes and got a bit of a picture of Athens in 3 hours, with stories about the city and its history and tips to visit.
