A wonderful small group tour!

We did this electric bike tour on our very first day in Athens. It was a fantastic way to be introduced to the highlights of the city! Initially, I was quite nervous as I hadn’t been on a bike in years, but the instructors were kind and patient, and the bike was very easy to use. Overall, we loved it and would highly recommend it! Lastly, shout out to Dimos, our local guide; he was funny and interesting and made sure we were having a good time and were comfortable at all times.

Amazing tour!

When deciding whether to book a walking tour or a private tour with a guide, we found this great Athens scenic bike tour, and it was a great way to see all of the city’s highlights. We drove around and saw the Olympic Stadium, the national library, the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, and Roman Agora while on the panoramic ride with an electric bike. After the tour, we decided to sit at a Greek tavern and hear some traditional Greek music and we even saw folk dances. It was a really amazing tour!
