Know More about this tour

Meet your local guide at your chosen time – 10am, 12pm or 4pm – and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll glide along tree-lined streets to the foothills of the UNESCO-listed Acropolis of Athens – the ancient citadel and archeological site that dominates the city.

On the northeastern slopes of the Acropolis is the neighborhood of Plaka -- the city’s Old Town -- home to a cluster of trendy bars and cafés that you'll see as you pass through. Head into bustling Monastiraki, the quarter that’s famous for its colorful flea market and glide past the ruins of Hadrian’s Library – a Corinthian structure built by the Roman emperor in 132 AD.

Just to the east of Monastiraki is the district of Thiseio, home to the Ancient Agora of Athens; once the heart of the ancient city, it's now an intriguing courtyard ruin complete with Doric columns typical of the Classical era. After stopping to take photos and listen to tales about the agora from your guide, glide around, soaking up its highlights like the beautifully preserved Temple of Hephaestous.

Head outside the agora to see Athens’ New Acropolis Museum where hundreds of artifacts from the Acropolis’ Archaic period are now housed. As you weave back down the slopes of the Acropolis, pass Mars Hill where you can see the incredible Rock of Ares (Aereopagus) and marvel at the panoramic views over the city.

After exploring the highlights of the ancient site with your guide, glide back to a location near the start point where your tour ends.

  • I highly recommend this tour!! We had a family of six, and we all loved it! The staff was amazing!! They worked with our delays, and were very understanding and helpful. The segways were fun and easy to ride. We were able to cover a lot of ground riding them instead of walking plus it was just fun!! Two hours was a perfect amount of time to get everything in. I would do it again in a second!

  • My 22-year-old daughter and I had a wonderful time on this tour - what a great way to see a lot of the city! It was easy to get around and our guide kept good track of us and taught us a lot. Also, she knew how to take fun pictures!

Tour was fabulous. We saw SO MUCH and had a fabulous guide who was very knowledgeable and made the tour so interesting. I would absolutely do this one again!

  • Terrific! Our guide was great sorry I have forgotten your name, she was vvery knowledgeable and knew her stuff. Her English was excellent. I would recommend this tour.

  • An excellent way to see Athens and get insights on the archaeological spots in Athens all in the span of two hours. For those who like to be adventurous, this tour is for you!

  • The tour guide was patient, knowledgeable and provided us with valuable information about each site. I would recommend the tour as a great alternative to walking and loads of fun once you get the hang of the Segway. I would recommend that the company add the address and map to the confirmation as we found it a challenge to find the shop. Even the local police sent us in the wrong direction.
