    Without a doubt it was the best experience of my Athens trip. Our guide Dimitris offered us a great experience, that had wit, education, entertainment and fun all rolled into one.
    I strongly recommend the service.

    It was one of the best biking tour I took. Whole staff was very professional. Danae was our guide. She was very courteous and knowledgeable. She showed us some hidden places that only locals know about them. She took her time and very patient. We got to see Athens very closely. Recommend highly.

    We had an amazing scenic trip throughout all of Athens key sights. Costas our tour guide did an outstanding job of explaining the background and history for each site and answered all our questions. Would recommend the tour as a first step in getting to know Athens to all.

    Pleasantly surprised. Our tour leader was awesome. She showed us around and gave us the insider information on Athens. We took our 9 year old on the trip, and they took great care of her with a smaller bike.

    Enrietta was a wonderful guide. Very friendly and genuine. Highly recommend the tour to get a good snapshot of Athens before you explore further.

    Our leader Sapfo Tavouti was great ! We had a great tour of the city, and got some good exercise at the same time. She is VERY knowledgeable about the city, and it was great getting to know her, since getting to know the locals is an important part of travel. One could also see that she knows lots of the people in the Center City, especially the restaurant owners, as she is very friendly.

    Had the best time. Our guide (I can't remember his name - sorry) spoke perfect English, as did the whole team, was super smart and funny and interesting about the city and the country, and a great group and a great time. In a few hours we saw all the coolest things, the bikes were perfect, it's just the perfect way to enjoy Athens. The cool breeze you get cycling makes it truly delightful. They accommodated me when I had some time problems. Do it!

    Great excursion! Lots of sights! The company is very professional and I would highly recommend this tour!

    This was the highlight of my stay in Athens. Most people are wondering why I said that, but our small group got to see the sights of Athens from a different view, and had the friendliest tour guide you could imagine. We would ride to a location and take a break while our guide would tell us about his beautiful Athens. Im going back to Athens next year, and will probably do the tour again. Its just plain fun.
    And we got a little cardio exercise in on a beautiful Athenian day!
