Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide and pick up your rental bike and helmet at the tour shop. The start time varies based on the time of year in order to catch the sunset. Hop on your bike and follow your knowledgeable tour leader on a relatively easy route that winds through the city and past nearly all of its major tourist sights.

From ancient ruins to cosmopolitan Greek culture, see it all from the seat of your bike at a relaxed pace. Enjoy the freedom and flexibility of a cycling tour, which lets you cover plenty of ground and get closer to the attractions than you would traveling by car or coach. (At certain points, dismount and walk your bike through pedestrian-only zones.)

Your guide helps you navigate traffic and keeps everyone safe throughout the tour. Although a little extra effort is required to scale the Athenian hills, the route and pace are suitable for most fitness levels. Finish with a panoramic view of the sunset washing over the cityscape below.

This was an excellent way to see the best of Athens and at sunset too and get exercise. I always do a bike tour when I visit a city for the first time and Kostas was the best guide so far. Warm knowledgeable funny and patient. He even helped me get a cab to our beach resort for the wedding i was attending in Athens.

Best way to see Athens

Dmitri is amazng! He’s told us to say that, but it’s true. We had one day in Athens and wanted to see as much as possible. This is a low exercise tour with a few short hills. The bikes are in great shape. You get to see everything in the old city in 3 hours. You do not go up to the Parthenon, but you see it from multiple amazing views. Dmitri’s knowledge of the city is endless and he made the trip the highlight of our stay in Athens.

Great tour and great tour guide. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. The tour took us through parts of the city that we never would have gotten to on our own. Definitely recommend.

We did the evening tour and absolutely loved it! You cover a lot of ground over 3 hours and in the process get a great overview of both modern and ancient Athens. We had the very charming Demitris as our guide, a young man who clearly knows the city and loves to share the history of Athens with you. I highly recommend this tour for ages 10 and up. There are some hills and lots of pedestrians to deal with, so be sure you are fit enough to spend a few hours mostly pedaling around Athens. Enjoy!

Dino's did a fabulous job, explaining the area and history well, being a very careful leader, protecting the riders from traffic multiple times, sharing joyous laughter, challenging his understanding of the area, and enjoying a jolly good bike ride! It was more of everything than I expected. So fun!
