What To Expect

Meet your guide and pick up your bike and helmet at the tour shop.

From ancient ruins to cosmopolitan Greek culture, see it all from the seat of your bike at a relaxed pace. Enjoy the freedom and flexibility of a cycling tour, which lets you cover plenty of ground and get closer to the attractions than you would traveling by car or coach. (At certain points, dismount and walk your bike through pedestrian-only zones.)

Your guide helps you navigate traffic and keeps everyone safe throughout the tour, while using only car-free areas and limited traffic streets. Although a little extra effort is required to scale the Athenian hills, the route and pace are suitable for most fitness levels. By the end of this fun Athens bike tour, you will have a complete overview of the city’s rich history from a local’s perspective, but you will also have made a visit to the Acropolis and the Parthenon.

Athens by Bike - outstanding!
Marcia_G, Oct 2023
Dimos was a professional and outstanding tour guide for our e-bike tour of Athens and the walking Acropolis tour. He was able to pace the tour to meet the needs of our group. We experienced visiting so many sites in such a short time by biking our way through the low traffic or paths throughout this historic city. Met great people on the tour! Thanks Dimos!
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for your absolutely fantastic feedback and kind words. I am glad to hear I managed to make this experience for you worth it and I'm glad to know you had a fun time exploring Athens on a bike. Wish you all the best for the rest of your holiday! - Dimos
Great way to see the city, Acropolis, & Parthenon
Madison_B, Oct 2023
Fantastic! Definitely do the bike tour and Acropolis combined. It was such a handy way to see the main city sites in a few hours. We loved our bike tour with Soto! He was very knowledgeable & funny. He told us lots of interesting facts of all the places we went by. It was so great to finish the bike tour & then also get an Acropolis & Parthenon tour as well. Perfect tour to see the city.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for your great feedback and kind words! I am glad to hear you enjoyed exploring Athens on a bike and I am sure that now you have the best overview of the city! Best wishes and hope to see you in Athens again soon! - Soto
Best overall Tour of Athens
ERNEST_P, Oct 2023
Save yourself some grief and get a Free Now to the location. It was hard navigating Athens, having just arrived the night before. Although we arrived 1/2 hour late for our tour, they happily accomodated us and scheduled us for the next available tour. Overall, Dimos was excellent and it was apparent he loved his JOB! He was extremely welcoming, outgoing, and knowlegeable. He was also patient with those having a little difficulty with the E-bikes and took care to find us when we had lingered longer than we should and got separated from our group. He also ensured all questions were answered and peaked everyone's interest with thought-provoking questions throughout the tour. We visited all of Athens most ancient and historic sites and learned from Dimos each's contribution to the Athens story. He also included recommendations on beer, wine, and other delicacies not to be missed in Athens. We also included the optional Acropolis visit which was equally excellent. Dimos paced the accent up the hill perfectly with stops along the way explaining the many additional parts of Acropolis history and giving us older visitors time to recoup. Dimos ensured everyone understood the significance of this site to the birth of Democracy! When in Athens, don't make the mistake of missing this outstanding opportunity.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you so much for this fantastic feedback and kind words! Despite the rough start, I am still happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and I am humbled to know I managed to give you a fun time exploring Athens' vibe and history with me. After this bike tour and our Acropolis visit I am confident that you have the best overview of the city and next time you visit you will be able to navigate easily around the different areas we saw together and even show around to your friends. I wish you all the best for the rest of your holiday and hope to see you in Athens soon! - Dimos

Fun and Informative Bike and Walk in Athens
James_G, Sep 2023
Our guide Dimos was outstanding. Extremely knowledgeable and his delivery of the information is superb and funny. The bike ride sees all the rekey and historical sites around the Acropolis and the walking part on the Acropolis was equally enjoyable.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Dear James, thank you for this truly fantastic feedback! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed exploring Athens on a bike with me and seeing all of Athens' main spots and hidden areas all in one day. Wish you all the best for the rest of your holiday! - Dimos
Great!
Lana_A, Sep 2023
Demos was excellent! Very knowledgeable about the Acropolis. Stephanie was very kind and patient. I would have loved more historical commentary while on the bike tour.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Dear Lana, thank you for your feedback and kind words. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and we are sure that now you have a great overview of Athens! Our bike tour focuses more on orientation, photography and leisure and it's not a historical tour that's why the historical commentary might be lacking at some points but we still give our guests lots of information about the places we visit as a guide for their next visit! Best wishes! - Dimos
The perfect tour
Sarah_p, Aug 2023
Dimos was the best!! My 63 year old mother and I went on this tour, and our guide Dimos, was the sweetest, most knowledgeable, and one the most helpful guides we’ve had on our whole vacation. He helped us navigate the busy streets, gave us tons of great information and truly found the perfect times at each place to avoid crowds or see what we needed to see without waiting. We loved this tour so much we can’t wait to recommend it to our friends and family back home.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Dear Sarah, thank you for your awesome feedback and kind words! I am humbled to hear I managed to give you and your mother a good experience while in Athens! I hope you made a good use of my tips which will come in handy next time you visit Athens! Looking forward to seeing you soon! - Dimos
Awesome and worth it!
Kristen_G, Aug 2023
We had the best experience! Damos was an excellent guide, and we thoroughly enjoyed the bike tour. We got to see so many areas we wouldn’t have known to go to on our own.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Dear Kristen, thank you for your great feedback and kind words! I am glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and you got to see and explore areas you wouldn't normally see on any other tours. Best wishes for the rest of the summer - Dimos
Excellent and Fun Tour
Mark_B, Jul 2023
Our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and spoke English well. Riding an electric bike was really fun (and made the journey easy). And we were able to see a lot in a relatively short time on our bikes. Our only suggestion to the tour company is to do the Acropolis walking tour first while it is cooler (and our legs are fresher) and the bike tour second.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Dear Mark, thank you for your great feedback and kind words! I am glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and had a fun time exploring all of Athens' life and history on a bike! I am sure that now you have a great overview of Athens and we wish you all the best for the rest of your holiday! - Dimos
The best way to see Athens
Fernanda_C, Jul 2023
We had such a phenomenal time in Athens learning history, riding the e-bikes and enjoying the beautiful city. Our guide Demos was amazing, knowledgeable, kind, funny and made us feel so comfortable. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you so much for your truly kind feedback and recommendation! I had a fantastic time cycling with you and showing you all of Athens has to offer in a short period of time. Wish you all the best for the rest of your holiday! Best wishes - Demos
The bang is definitely worth the buck!!
Jenny_S, Jul 2023
This was the perfect tour for me! I wanted to hit as many places as possible in a short amount of time while still getting the history in and not feeling like I was rushed. The tour started off early in the morning, before the heat and crowds came on and it finished in early afternoon which left me plenty of time to still explore other areas and go back to spots I wanted to stick around in longer. Dimos was a great guide, got us to great spots for great photos and his knowledge of everything was fantastic. I’ve already recommended this tour to 3 of my friends who are coming this summer, 1 of whom already booked it. Highly recommend!
Response from Host, Jul 2023
This is an amazing feedback Jenny! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, it was my pleasure to present you the secrets of Athens. We are so happy that you recommended the tour to friends as well. All the best, -Dimos
Above and beyond
Lori_S, Jun 2023
Our guide, we called him, Dem, was incredibly kind, witty, super knowledgeable and extremely personable. This was our first trip to Europe and our first bike tour and he made us feel safe and well cared for. We realized at the gate to enter the acropolis I had made an error in purchasing the entry tickets( wrong day) and they quickly had an employee bike to meet us with new tickets. Highly recommend this company. It was a blast!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Dear Lori, thank you for your great feedback and recommendation! I am glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and that you had a great overall experience. We always go above and beyond to give all of our guests' the best experience in Athens and we wish you all the best for the rest of your holidays! - Dimos
best way to see Athens
Kristin_S, Apr 2023
This was a great way to see Athens. Our guide was great. He suggested we do Acropolis in the beginning which was such a great tip. The line was so long when we left. very easily paced alot of stops to see different sights, not strenous at all. Some moments were you got the legs moving but short lived.
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Kristin, thank you for your great feedback! I am glad to hear you enjoyed the Acropolis by Bike tour and I am sure that now you don't only know more about Athens' history, but you can also navigate yourself better around the city after the bike tour. Wish you all the best and have a lovely rest of the summer! - Dimos
Fantastic, if you only do one tour do this!
David_G, Apr 2023
What a fantastic way to see the major sights in Athens. Streets were not too busy with traffic. Easy pleasant safe ride. Our guide took us in & walked us through the Acropolis with his incredible knowledge of its history. Fantastic!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Dear David, thank you so much for this great feedback! I am really happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and thank you for your humble words.
