Continue on to cycle through Thiseio and past the Kerameikos Cemetery and Roman Agora—with a pause to snap a photo—followed by the Cathedral, Plaka neighborhood, and a panoramic point with views over the Acropolis and Parthenon. The final stretch of the biking itinerary takes you past the Presidential Mansion, Panathenaic Stadium, and Zappeion Conference & Exhibition Center, before ending with the Arch of Hadrian and returning to the meeting point.

Sapfo was a great bike tour guide! She knew the area well and was full of detailed information on the history of Athens. The bike tour was the best way to see all the sites and become familiar with the area. The coffee break was fun to hear about others in our group and learn about Athens culture. Doing the tour early on our trip allowed us to better understand the area and where to visit after the tour. Sapfo provided great additional information on restaurants and other locations to visit as well. We would recommend this for any couple or families.

Not to be missed tour of Athens and its many attractions
Van_R, Feb 2024
Kostas expertly led our group of 6 on e-bikes throughout the city on this morning tour. We visited all the stops and paused long enough to discuss the significance of each. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable on Athens’ past and was happy to share his thoughts on life in the city and Athens in general. This was the perfect way to get oriented in this amazing city. Dimos then took me on the optional Acropolis tour where I felt like I received an amazing history lesson by someone who could easily teach a college course on the classic period, Greek history, architecture, art, and religion. Don’t miss these tours and hopefully you’ll get the same guides I did!
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Dear Van, thank you for this truly fantastic feedback! Dimos and I are very glad to hear we managed to give you a fun and complete experience of Athens' history, vibe and surroundings. I am sure that now you feel a lot more acquained and knowledgable regarding this beautiful city and next time you visit you will be able to explore around on your own like a true local and -why not- maybe join us again for another journey! Best wishes - Kostas

Would highly recommend this trip to anyone spending time in Athens. I would recommend it at the beginning of your stay because you go through the whole city and it shows you a lot of different areas that you might miss if you try to explore on your own in the beginning, the bikes are very easy to use and the guide is funny.

We had an amazing time. This was the best excursion we have been on by far. Our guide Kostas was culturally and historically very informative. We felt safe the entire time and saw so much without feeling rushed. I definitely recommend. Seeing the Acropolis after the bike tour was a great add on and very convenient in terms of location. It was a perfect day!

Rachel_C, Dec 2023
We were upgraded to a private tour. When I say the bike tour was fun, e-bikes were easy to manage and fun, and there were great sites to see so mesmerizing. Demos was awesome took great photos of us at the stops along the way and he was very patient and gave us some very detailed history about the sites and Greece overall. I say this was the best part of our trip. Thank you again.

Perfect first day in Athans.
Elizabeth_K, Nov 2023
It was great to tour the town on bikes! We saw so much in just a few hours and it was the perfect orientation of Athans for our first day. Our guide was knowledgeable, native, and funny. Our family of 6 including 4 teenagers had a wonderful time. After the 10-2 tour, we had time for the Acropolis museum and up to see the Acropolis for the last hour before closing at sunset.

Excellent way to see City.
Simon_J, Nov 2023
An amazing experience cycling around Athens. The whole trip was well organised and easy to follow for even the less experienced rider. The e bikes are easy to use and you are provided with a helmet as well if you wish. The tour takes you on the quiet streets of Athens to the key sites. We had the opportunity to see the changing of the guard. The quick coffee stop for a caffeine fix ( or water) was a welcome rest break. The group is a max 12 and it’s a relaxed cycle with a fabulous guide. K was helpful , knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely a great way to be introduced to the city and where you want to later explore further. They even send you an email link of key places to eat and drink as well as a map of the tour you have done. Excellent. Worth it.

Nice 2 part ride with great views.
Robert_B, Nov 2023
It was like a 2 part ride. All the way around the Acropolis then out to the 1896 Olympic stadium and the Temple to Zeus. It was great seeing the restaurant rick neighborhoods around the Acropolis. The highlight for me was the 1896 Olympic stadium.

Great tour with 0 stress!
Ben_W, Nov 2023
This was one of the best cycle tours I’ve done in Europe. Soto was our guide and he balanced good information, history and a good sense of humour. He took us to some good local spots that weren’t crowded, took time along the way, gave us a heads up as to what to expect traffic and cycling wise which helped a lot! Please request Soto as he is amazing!

Book this tour, you won't regret it!
Jeanine_N, Nov 2023
"K" was out tour guide. He was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. This is not a historical tour but we learned so much about the city. The eBikes were great and easy to use. They emailed us a guide afterwards with places to see and do and restaurant recommendations. Demos did our Acropolis tour. No one else signed up so we had a private tour. He was also very knowledgeable, but this part was much more informative on the history side of things. It was great!

Best way to view Athens sites!
Alison_R, Oct 2023
Perfect views of the city's sites from locations you'd never reach on foot or a standard tour. E-bikes were so simple to use! We appreciated Stas(sp?) and his insights throughout the tour and tips for the balance of our trip. Great tour for day 1 of vacation as an introduction or at the end as a capstone.
