  • This was an amazing experience! We didn't have very much time to spend in Athens and this tour was perfect for us so that we can see all the important sites in the city. Kostas our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided a fun time showing us around. Kostas also provided some great and valuable information on how to spend the remainder of our time in Athens. Would highly recommend this! You would not be disappointed.

  • Awesome day on bikes! The group at Soulbike was stellar! Welcoming and so helpful when we arrived. The electric bike tour is great overview of the city and helps to show you the old city. My family had so much fun. Guide was so knowledgable of the city and made sure we were all safe.

  • Great way to see the major sights of the city and our guide, Angelo, was very knowledgeable, funny, and loquacious! Made for a very enjoyable experience and we had great views of areas we later went back to explore more, like the Acropolis then walking down into Plaka, and Monastiraki and the open-air market. The break in the little cafe for Greek coffee and a snack was a perfect break. I highly recommend this tour, the e-bikes are the way to go, especially with all the hills. Easy to handle, the headsets were great, you get a great 3.5 hours of exercise with a very entertaining guide and mostly on wide pedestrian walkways.

  • Angelo provided a detailed and informed tour of the sites of Athens. He was extremely articulate and provided a very personal touch to our tour. It was very interesting talking to him about Athens. The ebikes were welcome on some of the steep hills on the tour. I would highly recommend this tour for a great overview of Athens.
