Highlights
  • Peddle through Athens on a top-quality bicycle
  • Get close to some of Athens’ most popular attractions
  • Navigate the city with an English-speaking guide
  • Enjoy views of the sunset over Athens
What to Expect
Meet your English-speaking guide in central Athens in the afternoon (departure changes depending on the sunset timing). After gearing up with a bike and helmet, set out on an easy route that includes just a few hills. Peddle at a gentle pace through the city as you pass by its highlights. The route is flexible, but you likely see ancient ruins like Keramikos Cemetery while also getting a feel for modern Greek life. Get closer to attractions that you could in a car. When necessary, hop off your bike and walk it through pedestrian-only zones. At the conclusion of your tour, enjoy the view of the sunset over the city.

We had a great trip with these guys - lovely leisurely pace - not too many hills and generally informative and a really fun way to see what Athens has to offer. We didn't use electric bikes, but it was fine. Highly recommend this tour and myself and Natasha really enjoyed it.

I visited the city with my girlfriend. We did two tours with Athens by bike. Both were absolutely amazing. Costas took us on a fantastic Rivera tour. I felt great once we came to the beach and I absolutely loved the new library its park at the Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center.
