Overview

See the best of Athens with a guide, who takes care of navigation and logistics, on this guided tour. You’ll go past city highlights such as the Dipylon Gate, Roman Forum, and Ancient Agora, among other ancient monuments. Pedal along bike-friendly paths and streets and cover more ground than if walking. You’ll stop at a cafe the Plaka neighborhood for Greek coffee while chatting about city history with your guide.

What to Expect

Make your way to a central Athens point to meet your guide and group. After a safety briefing, you’ll receive a bike and helmet, which allows you to travel like a local. This leisurely tour is suitable for riders of all abilities.

Pedal off for a 3.5-mile (9-kilometer) tour of Athens' highlights. The route passes the Acropolis Museum, Acropolis Hill, and the Parthenon, before winding through quiet neighborhoods and car-free areas on the way to the Ancient Agora. Learn city history while exploring the Roman Forum and Tower of the Winds. Next see Athens Orthodox Cathedral and Kerameikos cemetery.

Take a break for some authentic Greek-style coffee and chat it up with your group. After a rest, cycle to Plaka and make other stops such as the Panathenaic Stadium and National Gardens, Zappeion.

End where you began, and with an understanding of ancient and modern Greek life.

Best way to see Athens!

Alex and Kostas were wonderful! They were very knowledgeable and personable. They were wonderful with my 10 and 13 year old girls. Would definitely do this again!

Great overview of Athens

Great bike tour, Sapfo was enthusiastic and knowledgable. I especially enjoyed being able to explore a few sights on foot that are inaccessable to bikes. These are usually skipped in other tours.

Great way to experience local color and historical sites on wheels

Our bike tour with Alex was top and most enjoyable with interesting sights, anecdotes, caffé freddo and personal notes from a most experienced and passionate bike guide, all this made our visit to Athens better than expected and turned out to be a perfect start...More
