  • Excellent tour and tour guide - we had a blast! Costas was friendly, knowledgable, funny...our family ages 17 and up did this together on our first day in Athens and it was a perfect intro tour! Highly recommend!

  • This was AWESOME. Kostos was the best guide we could wish for! Our group all agreed that this was one of our most favorite parts of our trip to Greece and have been recommending it to all our friends. Great way to see Athens and its history.

  • Alex was a great guide and my group had a fantastic time learning about Athens with her! A+

  • We absolutely loved this tour and our guide Alex was amazing. We were only in Athens for 1 full day and it really was the best way for us to see the city. The paths were not hard at all since we stuck to pedestrian streets. Alex also did a great job of answering all of our questions and letting us stop for longer than we should have. It turned the 3 hours into 4 hours, but it there was so much to see. Stop considering and just book it--you won't regret it.

  • Bike ride was a nice idea, but there was a lot of stopping for pedestrians in crowded areas and didn't go to the Parthenon.

  • Good way to get to know the city - enjoyed by my 11 year old seeing all the sites - and enjoyed by my wife with the coffee shop stop !

    Would recommend to anyone who wanted to combine sightseeing with a bit of leisurely exercise.

  • Een fantastische manier om de stad te verkennen! Je komt langs de belangrijkste plaatsen, en je krijgt er een enthousiaste uitleg bij, gecombineerd met interessante tips. Bijvoorbeeld welke ingang van de Akropolis het interessantst is, waar je best wel en niet gaat eten, enz. Het is een fietstocht van drie uur waarvoor je zeker geen getraind fietser moet zijn, het tempo ligt zodanig dat je rustig de tijd krijgt om rond te kijken. Onze groep was niet te groot, vijf personen, dat was erg aangenaam. Voeg daarbij onze zeer gemotiveerde gids Kostas, en dat maakt dat we op een rustige manier de stad leerden kennen. Halverwege hebben we nog iets gedronken, waarbij we nog wat uitleg kregen over de Griekse koffie ik had nog nooit de koude koffie gedronken en dat viel me goed mee. En aan het eind kregen we nog een fris flesje water dat deed deugd, en nog verdere tips voor de rest van ons verblijf. Kortom, een echte aanrader!

  • Dimitrus was amazing very informative and funny we had the best day on our 3 hour bike ride we had a local coffee at our half way point highly recommend this tour you won't be disappointed

  • We loved this tour. Alex our guide was very knowledgeable and also very educated in Greek architecture and gave us a very in depth insight into these wonderful ruins.
    We loved going around by bike as we felt we got to see more than if we were in a vehicle. The bikes were easy to ride and Alex was sure to take good care of us and not let us get lost.
    We stopped at a lovely cafe for a drink and cookies.Alex was able to talk to us about the current Greek culture and way of life - very interesting. thanks Alex - we really enjoyed ourselves on this tour.

  • Dimitri was wonderful! He was very knowledgeable, upbeat and very sweet. It was hot that day but he made it seem easy and fun. I had gotten injured my fault I wasnt paying attention and he was sincerely concerned and tried to help. I was fine just a badly bruised shin. I highly recommend if you are in Athens
