What people are saying about Hadrian's Library

Fantastic trip and discovery of Athens with the advice of the guid. We had a fantastic guide Julios Valles and he was so funny and made our morning really very knowledgeable and funny with his jokes and comments. Even though he is not a Greek he knows very well Athens ( I think thank to her Greek girlfriend). The secret paths and areas which are non known to the tourists are the top of the list. one if not the best biking trip in Athens

This tour was one of the best we have ever been on, and Kostas, our tour guide, was an important reason why - he was very attenitive to every participant and spoke excellent english. Athens are quite big, so doing a tour with bycicles turned out to be an excellent choice. We did another tour - with a supposedly “premium” company - which we were not nearly as pleased with.

A great way to get to know Athens on the first day. Dimos was an excellent, super friendly, and knowledgable tour guide. I strongly recommend taking this tour for your first activity in Athens.

Very friendly and funny. Well worth the money. I’d recommend this trip to whoever who wanted a quick general glance of Modern Athen’s way of living.

Julio was amazing. He had a great energy, answered everyone’s questions and gave insights on where to go and what to see in Athens.
