Full description
Embark on an electric bike tour of Athens that combines the city’s ancient and modern sites, and enjoy panoramic views, picturesque streets, and well-known archeological sights along the way. Following a short briefing and test ride at the centrally located meeting point, cruise through a park to familiarize yourself with the bike before the start of your tour proper. Glide effortlessly up the hill to Pnyka and Filoppappou, where there will be time to admire the views and take panoramic photos. Go to see the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Areios Pagos (Supreme Court) on the slopes of the Acropolis, before heading to the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch. Along the way, discover some of the city’s more modern monuments, and look at the Evzones (guards) standing in front of the Parliament building in their colorful tunics. Travel through the National Gardens to arrive at the Panathinaic Stadium, site of the very 1st Olympic Games. Then, cycle back through the narrow streets of Plaka to discover a picturesque neighborhood just steps from the Acropolis. Stop to look at the Tower of Winds and discover the Roman and ancient markets, before heading back.

    An absolutely amazing experience, you see so much and really get to soak it up, you don’t feel rushed at all while getting to see the top hot spots of Athens! Our tour guide George (should be renamed George the Great!!) was fantastic, such a lovely guy with a great sense of humour and full of information. This tour is not to be missed!!

    Best part of the trip, was really fun biking round exploring the city and George (Guide) was personable, funny and knowledgeable. Even when asked questions outside of the tour he didn't hesitate with answers. Not only that at the end recommended non touristy bars and restaurants to eat in for a more authentic experience then hitting tourist traps. Already been to 3 and exceeded expectations. Would recommend strongly.

    This was superb! I would highly recommend this ebike tour

    Our guide led us through paths which were not too difficult for those who do not cycle routinely. His commentary was informative, interesting and contained surprises: he got us to a certain corner to see the parade of the changing of the guard without the crowds. I just loved his offer to photograph tour members at iconic sites such as with the Acropolis in background. At the end of our tour, he capped it off with several small but traditional Greek gifts, as it was my birthday...he helped make it memorable!
