It was magical! Definitely top of my list of "must do" activities in Athens. You begin in the early evening light with spectacular scenery and you finish in the dark again with spectacular scenery--as so many buildings are lit up at night. The guides were so knowledgeable and interesting--and very attentive to the traffic, so I never felt worried. And the e-bikes are such fun to ride.

wonderful experience with a Dimitri guide who speaks French in addition. he makes you visit the city and discover corners and flavors that you would not have discovered on your own. very friendly and available, we struggled to get to the meeting place because our hotel was very far, but he waited impatiently. we had a superb Athenian evening. I recommend it 200%

Awesome experience. My guide, Eirini, was very personable and overall just a great guide. She showed me a roof top bar I probably never would have found on my own and the best gyro I had all trip. My only regret is doing this tour at the end of my trip so I couldn’t go back to the places she showed me.

It was a fun activity to do on our Mother/Daughter trip , the dance teacher was very patient with us ( Greek Dancing looks easy but it's not) our guide was wonderful she gave us a lot of good tips and we learn some interesting Greek History , over all a good experience

Great tour, lovely views, very nice tour guide! Best to do first day there to get a good background before visiting the sights in full after.
