My bike tour experience with Dimitri was great! He not only toured me around major tourist sights, but also showed me the places that only the locals know. The morning tours are great, there aren’t that many people on the road, so the bike tour will be easy for everyone. After the tour, you can visit Souvlaki places, or other... More

A friend from the US was visiting for 8 days so I had limited time to show her everything ! Touring downtown Athens on a bike was very appealing. Meredith and I are athletic in general but you don't need to be at your fittest to do the bike tour; the route is relatively flat all the way. We went... More

I recommend Athens by Bike to everyone who visits Athens. I did the private tour together with my mother who enjoyed this tour even more then I did. Really friendly owner and tourguide. Just skip the bustours and book a trip at Athens by Bike!

My husband and I were on a quick day trip to Athens since we arrived by cruise ship. We did an afternoon 3 hour bike ride. What a great way to be introduced to this historical city. Our tour guide, Kostas, was very profesional and knowledgeable about all the history of the city. Skip the bus tours and all the... More

With just a day to 'take in' what I could of Athens, the bicycle tour was ideal. The people were polite, informed, and keen to provide great service. The equipment also was good. I enjoyed every minute of it [even at the age of 75, and even though we had a little rain].

I visited Athens with a group of 30 danish high school student. Manos and his team provided us with good quality bikes and divided us into two groups of 15 with 3 guides to accompany us. The bike tour to the coast and bike was done at a leisurely pace with a couple of stops on the way. We had... More

Whenever we are in a new city/weekend break we try and do a bike tour - and this tour we did in Athens was one if the best ones we have been on. Alex was our guide and super knowledgable. It is such a beautiful old city - it felt we were taking a ride through an open air museum.... More

My wife and I (aged 60+) spent a wonderful morning seeing the city from different angles with Kostas as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and friendly and gave us insight into modern Greece as well as the historical aspects. Great bikes. Coffee stop at a great café (where Kostas also performed first aid as I managed to fall off... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
