What you'll do

Our morning Athens bike tour is a fun way of exploring the modern city without missing the amazing ancient part. We have trekking/city bikes and can also provide electric bikes with an additional charge.
During our 3.5-hour tour, we will make several stops and have sufficient time for photos. We will give you insider tips regarding the daily life in Athens together with recommendations about eating as a local and going out at night.

During the tour, we will travel together through time as we pass by all the main highlights of the historic center of Athens, such as the National Observatory area, the Ancient Greek cemetery of Kerameikos, Thission, the Ancient Greek Agora, the Roman Agora and the Athens City Cathedral, the national gardens and the Panathenaic stadium.

Enjoying local flavours is one of the highlights of our tour. During our 20-minute break, at a nice café, you will be offered a cup of traditional Greek coffee or some delicious traditional ice cream. Throughout this time, you will also get the chance to mingle with the rest of the group.

-We do not enter any archaeological sites on this tour.
-Participants with electric bikes may be joining our group.
-Bike frames for heights <155cm can be provided ONLY upon request.
-Tour runs under all weather conditions, rain or shine.

My name is Manos and after spending most of my life in Athens, I am willing to share with you its beauties. I believe that a bike tour is the best way to get to know a city. It is ideal for short-term visitors, it is an active trip through the heart of the city.

Our whole family really enjoyed our bike tour. Kostas was our guide and I highly recommend you request him as your guide. He was very knowledgeable about the city being in his company was a real pleasure. All that we learned and experienced on the bike tour will help us make the most of our time here in Athens.

This was a fantastic introduction to the city of Athens! The bike tour was really well balanced between actively biking through the city and stopping to appreciate the sights!

Demos was very funny and was very informative on history of Greece and not just Athens. He would try to answer every question you have especially if it’s about food :) I would do this again and again if I come back to Athens

the tour guide is a nice person. we rode bikes to different viewpoints and got neighborhood information. please note that you will not receive ANY history information on this tour. it was my fault for assuming this on a bike tour of athens. every other city tour i’ve ever done in other cities around the world included amazing historical information about that city. apparently in greece that information can only be supplied by licensed official tour guides and operators.
