Kostas was an awesome guide. We went all around Athens and saw some pretty good spots. I would highly recommend this tour to people who would like to see the sites around Athens.
See the best of Athens with a guide, who takes care of navigation and logistics, on this guided tour. You’ll go past city highlights such as the Dipylon Gate, Roman Forum, and Ancient Agora, among other ancient monuments. Pedal along bike-friendly paths and streets and cover more ground than if walking. You’ll stop at a cafe the Plaka neighborhood for Greek coffee while chatting about city history with your guide.
Make your way to a central Athens point to meet your guide and group. After a safety briefing, you’ll receive a bike and helmet, which allows you to travel like a local. This leisurely tour is suitable for riders of all abilities.
Pedal off for a 3.5-mile (9-kilometer) tour of Athens' highlights. The route passes the Acropolis Museum, Acropolis Hill, and the Parthenon, before winding through quiet neighborhoods and car-free areas on the way to the Ancient Agora. Learn city history while exploring the Roman Forum and Tower of the Winds. Next see Athens Orthodox Cathedral and Kerameikos cemetery.
Take a break for some authentic Greek-style coffee and chat it up with your group. After a rest, cycle to Plaka and make other stops such as the Panathenaic Stadium and National Gardens, Zappeion.
End where you began, and with an understanding of ancient and modern Greek life.
