We had a fantastic bike tour with Sotos! This tour is the best way to get an overview of this gorgeous city. Do it on your first day so you are then an expert on getting around! Sotos was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Not only did he know everything about the history, he gave us great restaurant recommendations as well as other handy tips about Athens! The tour office was well organized and the bikes were super comfortable. We did this tour with our two teenage daughters who had a great time. Highly recommend!!

Great Experience

The bike tour was awesome. It was the peak of a heat wave, and our guide (Vangelli (sp?))found shady spots for us. His descriptions/stories were brief and concise. We learned a lot. We wish we would have done this on day 1 so that we would have had more time to go back to some of the neighborhoods that we visited. Thanks for a great experience!

Dear Megan, thank you for your kind feedback! Summer in Athens can get too hot so we always try our best to give everyone the best, most comfortable experience and we are happy we managed to do this!

Constantino!!! Such a excellent tour and excellent tour guide. This trip was essential for helping us get familiar with the area and help us gauge our interest around the city and where we should spend our time. The bike tour is hard to hear if your in the back but if you try to stay up in the front, you won’t have any problems. Also, the tour stops a lot to explain, give people rest, and to answer any questions so it is very helpful. Every question was answered in depth and he even gave us tips on where to eat and spend our time.

Dear Micah, thank you so much for this great and thorough feedback that shows you really enjoyed our tour! It was a pleasure for us and Constantinos to have you along on the tour and we believe that now you have a greater overview of our beautiful city!

Pit stop in Athens? This tour is for you.

We only had one day in Athens and this was the perfect way to highlight the city sites and a productive way to see as much as possible. After our tour we were able to walk around the city neighborhoods with better orientation to where we were and go up to the top of the acropolis. The tour included a good amount of information from a local guide who was so passionate and excited about her city. Biking was completed on roads that were bumpy and uneven but very safe with few cars. Would highly recommend.

Enjoyed the bike ride, timing to see changing of the guards was perfect. Would have liked to spend a bit more time in the National Garden.

Dear Ann, thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the ride. There are too many beautiful places to see in Athens so we try our best to fit every one of them in our 3 hour tour, hence we couldn't spend more time in the National Garden (no matter how much we love it!). We hope you had the chance to visit later and spend more time enjoying the beautiful green scenery!

We only had one day in Athens and this gave us a great feel for the city. Loved the stories Demetrius, our guide, told us about soldiers in front of Presidential Palace. Great secret views of the city. Electric bikes were super fun. Demetrius was a charming and engaging guide full of information about the city he lives in and ❤️ loves!

This was a very useful tour. The guides were very friendly and personable. They spoke perfect English and moved at a reasonable pace. They took us on a tour of many hidden spots to get amazing views of the city and Acropolis. They have information about the city and history to the best of their knowledge being that they were locals and did their best to answer any questions. The Ebikes were very easy to use and it really helped get an idea of how to tackle your trip and where to go, what to see. I suggest starting your trip with one of these tours.
