Highlights
  • Peddle through Athens on a top-quality bicycle
  • Get close to some of Athens’ most popular attractions
  • Navigate the city with an English-speaking guide
  • Enjoy views of the sunset over Athens
What to Expect
Meet your English-speaking guide in central Athens in the afternoon (departure changes depending on the sunset timing). After gearing up with a bike and helmet, set out on an easy route that includes just a few hills. Peddle at a gentle pace through the city as you pass by its highlights. The route is flexible, but you likely see ancient ruins like Keramikos Cemetery while also getting a feel for modern Greek life. Get closer to attractions that you could in a car. When necessary, hop off your bike and walk it through pedestrian-only zones. At the conclusion of your tour, enjoy the view of the sunset over the city.

Our tour guide Dimitris was the best! The bike tour is so much fun and not difficult at all. We had arrived in Athens the day before and once we had been on this tour we felt like we knew the place! A very fun and informational tour, it was so well planned that we never cycled
