What people are saying about Thiseio

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this bike tour and highly recommend it! Dina was a great guide sharing her knowledge of the city as we covered a fairly leisurely 6.5 mile route. We saw so much we never would have discovered on our own, and thought the tour was a superb way to experience the amazing sights and sounds of Athens!

you can see much more by bike without getting tired.!! Nestea was nice, friendly & funny. It was a small group, 8 people & although I was worried about cycling on busy Athens roads we kept off these scary places & did parks & small or pedestrianised roads. A very pleasant way to spend the morning. Thanks

The bikes were great and the route taken very varied and interesting. Kostas the guide was very amusing, interesting and knowledgeable.

A really fun light hearted fly through the city on quieter roads and lanes. A great way to spend a morning
