Full description
The bike tour lasts about 3 hours, and it is a nice way to get yourselves oriented in the city of Athens. The ride takes place in the amazing historic city center, on pedestrian areas, low traffic streets, and parks away from the traffic hustle. Your local tour leader will head the tour, riding with you very close to the main archaeological sites and guiding you through some hidden areas, while providing you with a stunning experience!  The group rides close to the new Acropolis Museum and the Ancient Cemetery of Kerameikos, through the neighborhood of Thission, while you enjoy a great view of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Then, cycle through the Ancient Greek Agora and pass by the Roman Agora Continue cycling in the historic district of Plaka, and then move to the National Gardens, one of the best areas to ride in downtown Athens.

We was away on a work trip so had little time to explore Athens and googled ideas prior and decided on this one, it was super easy to find, a really fun, nice pace ride with costas being great with facts and answering questions along with tips for what and where to go after, highly recommended, we got to see everything we wanted and didn’t feel tired after.

Very nice bike ride to see Athens! Our guide Andreas Athanasiou told with enthusiasm what we could admire along the way and took us on a quiet route through the city. We cycle around the Acropolis, through the old center along the excavations and through the park near the Parliament building. Highly recommended!

A wonderful small tour today with Dimitris as our guide. Saw all there was to see around Athens. Electric bikes were amazing and great information, tops in the city. We did it on out first morning which I would recommend as it gives you an insight for the rest of the trip. Would definitely say is a must whilst in Athens.
