What To Expect

Make your own way to the meeting point for your 3-hour tour as evening sets in. With the main crowds and afternoon heat melted away, early evening is an ideal time to explore Athens, especially as it marks the moment when the city’s monuments flicker to life in a blaze of lights.

Meet your guide, don your helmet and get a safety briefing and orientation session to familiarize yourself with your electric, two-wheeled, self-balancing Segway. Then, once you’re ready, set off with your guide and small group to explore the pretty streets beneath the UNESCO-protected Acropolis – the ancient rocktop citadel that gazes down on the city.

Cruise into Plaka, Athens’ Old Town, as the lights of its tavernas and bars switch on for the evening. Then, glide through the Monastiraki neighborhood to the remnants of Hadrian’s Library. Pose for photos outside this age-old complex as you hear why the Roman Emperor Hadrian had it built in 132 AD.

Ride on to the Agora, home to the remains of Athens’ ancient marketplace and civic center. Admire the illuminated remnants of the colonnades, statues and shrines, including the Temple of Hephaestous. Then, swing by the stunning New Acropolis Museum, where many of Athens’ ancient antiquities are held, and cruise around the Acropolis’ slopes.

Stop at Mars Hill to ogle the stunning city views, and after a break for a drink (own expense) at a lively bar, end your explorations with a 1-hour tour of Athens’ top attractions, all now bathed in splendid floodlights.

View the Temple of Zeus, Old Parliament House, Athens University and other buildings; and continue to the Panathinaikos Stadium, the all-marble arena that staged the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.

Admire the 60,000-seater stadium and then steer your Segway back to near the start point where your tour concludes.

This tour helped us have a quick orientation of the city. The night tour especially felt beautiful with less crowd.

This tour was a lot of fun. Easy to find and very accommodating. My wife and I booked as part of our honeymoon and enjoyed it very much. This was our first time ever on a Segway and we picked it up surprisingly quickly and easily.

Elli was awesome!!! It was just the two of us personal attention was first rate. We were unable to find office so we called and she came to get us. Her Segway instruction were great and plenty of time to practice. Would highly recommend Viator give different instructions “near metro stop is very misleading” and I’m directionally challenged. It was my 2nd time Segway and my friend’s 1st time we are both hooked now. Would highly recommend.

The segway tour was very informative. If you have a limited amount of time in AThens and you want to see the sights this is the tour for you.

One of the most amazing segway tours...
Kumbi M, Dec 2017
One of the most amazing segway tours me and my wife have done! We segway a lot and do it as our first activity usually on city breaks to get to know the lay of the land before the footwork. But doing the segway at night in ATHENS, come on! This is an experience on another level. I am so grateful to our host, she was amazing, fortunately because it was an evening tour, it was just me and my wife so we skipped the beginner's lessons and just got on with it, and she took us everywhere! and had time to stop everywhere and take the history in, she was so good at her history that when we stopped for the changing of the guard which is incredible sight and rich history, the soldier on site came over to commend her for giving accurate information unlike other tour guides It was amazing, thank you for a lovely experience.

Howard_R, Sep 2017
Our guide was super fantastic. We went all around athens and learned all about the city in three hours. It was easier to learn how to drive the Segway than I thought.

SUSANH_H, May 2017
So much fun- just my daughter and I, Costas was so patient and in no time we were zipping around Athens. He gave us a lot of info about sights we had seen earlier in the week and took us to places we would have never known about ourselves. Please give them a try!

JanetR_S, Nov 2016
What a magical way to see Athens! We covered lots of ground. It was a great overview of some of the sights that we went back to later during the day. We went in November, so it was cool. Remember there is a wind chill when riding the Segway. Hat, scarf and gloves are recommended. The addition of a guide communication system with microphone and headsets for guests would make the experience much more pleasurable because hearing the guide was challenging in some of the noisy, bustling streets of Athens.

Our tour guide Vera was wonderful and we had so much fun riding around the city after dark. It is very easy to learn to ride a Segway and only takes about 5 minutes. A fun way to get around.

Grant G, Jul 2016
This tour was amazing. We only had 24 hours in Athens and this was the best way to explore the sights. We chose a night tour which started before sunset, allowing us to get good photos. Also because it was much cooler we were more relaxed. Athens after sunset is beautiful as well. Great fun!

We did not feel safe at night in Athens and did not go.

James M, Nov 2015
This was the highlight of our trip! Our tour guide Gina was fantastic and seeing Athens at night was incredible. She was extremely knowledgeable and provided enough information and time at each site. It is hard to believe how much ground we covered in 3 very full hours. As for the segways, they were easy and fun to ride. I would highly recommend this tour.

Love the Segway experience - it's such a great way to tour an area. And the at night tour always is rewarding as it takes us to area and at times we wouldn't otherwise venture. Guide was friendly and informative.

Great night! Would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see Athens after dark in a fun and safe way.

Collie, Aug 2014
Really enjoyed this tour. It was fun and a great introduction to Athens. Sad to say we only arrived in Athens that afternoon after a 24 hour trip and were really exhausted but we made the most of this tour. Athens was beautiful at night and it was lovely to see the sights, experience the night markets and mingle amongst the many people out wining and dining in beautiful Athens.
