Know More about this tour

Many visitors to Athens never experienced the citys striking waterfront. To begin your coastal bike adventure, meet your guide and pick up a high-quality bike and helmet near the Acropolis metro station in the morning. Start by pedaling around the base of the Acropolis in the small streets of Plaka neighborhood, get unique views of the Parthenon and pass next to the Roman Forum and the Ancient agora to the Thission neighborhood.

Continue along a flat, bike-friendly route through the citys quieter neighborhoods for about 5 miles (8 km) to reach the coast. Enjoy the fresh Aegean breeze and relaxed atmosphere away from the bustle of the city center, and take in great views of the Saronic Gulf. See waterside highlights like the SNFCC New Opera House and National library of Athens, the Tae Kwon Do complex from the 2004 Olympic Games and the Faliro Marina.

Continue towards Kalamaki Beach, where you will get some free leisure time to relax and take advantage of the beautiful sandy beach. On the ride back to the city center, we pass through the luxurious Flisvos marina and then stop in a local pastry shop to taste some local delicacies. By the time you return to the original departure point in the early afternoon, expect to complete around 15 miles (25 km) during the relaxed ride.

    Tour guide was very nice. Would have been nice to stop more often and hear more about the areas etc. Snack break was amazing. Be warned - it’s 30+ km on a hot day...one lady struggled towards the end.

    This bike tour was amazing. My guide "D" is very knowledgeable and friendly and had a few surprises for us along the way

    Had a really enjoyable ride to the coast in March with Kostas. He's easy going, super-knowledgeable about Athens (and Sparta) and can give you lots of great tips for your visit. If possible, try and make this one of your first tours!

    This tour was amazing and our tour guide Sapfo was the BEST! Her humour and personality was the best and from the moment we walked into the bike shop she treated us like family. The other staff were pretty great too. Sapfo gave us the best crash course in Athens and Greek culture, showed us parts of the City that I'm absolutely sure we wouldn't have found ourselves, like the new Cultural Center that houses a modern-designed library and a roof top with great views of the city. We also went to the marina, the observatory and some of the more touristy areas like Monstaki ? Square. We lucked out and ended up with a personal tour because we were the only ones booked during that time. We had a short 2 days! in Athens and taking the bike tour was really the best decision because we were able to cover a lot of the city that we otherwise would not have. Sapfo also stopped by a nice café and introduced us to some Greek treats that were delicious. After the tour, Athens By Bike also followed up with recommendations of things we would like. Very nice and I highly recommend this.

    This was my second time with Athens By Bike. I ended up getting a private tour with Dimitri. Awesome bike ride, really nice scenery, and knowledgeable guide. The first time I was in Athens I spent all my time learning about ancient Athens, this was a really good way to experience modern Athens.

    Demitrious and Sofor were excellent tour guides who gave us a lot of information at our varied stops during the ride. Athens' bike lanes are not well separated and makes for an interesting trip. I am a 66 year old novice bike rider and, while I made it through, I think one should have a modicum of experience before taking on a trip of this length.

    This was an amazing tour and probably my favorite experience in Athens. It's great to be out, seeing the sights, and breathing that fresh sea air! Easy enough for all fitness levels flat surface.

    Great way to see Athens! More than 95 of the tour was on bike paths. We felt very safe. We enjoyed seeing the city from a different perspective. Our tour guide, Kostas, was fantastic. He was friendly, very professional, yet laid back and even treated us to a traditional Greek dessert on our way back to the city. Highly recommend.

    Such an enjoyable day with Dimitris. Would recommend this to anyone no matter what age you are or how fit you are

    Many thanks to Kostas for a wonderful tour. We were in Athens for over a week and not going on to the coast anywhere else and it was just great to get out of the city centre and down to the coast - and to see other bits of Athens. Kostas is doing a PhD in History and know his stuff! My husband didn't bike as a child and is thus nervous on roads. But this tour was fine as it really was on cycle paths most of the way.
