I am so glad that we booked the electric bike tour for our first visit to Athens. The bikes were a great way to see the city and they were so easy to use. We had George as our guide and he was great showing us all the sites and providing us with some interesting history facts. We got to see all the main sites of Athens, including a 25 minute stop at the Panathenaic Stadium which we were were able to go in for a few euros each. We were also luckily enough to see the changing of the guards outside the Presidential Palace just metres in front of us.

At the end of the tour George provided us all with some helpful local suggestions. We were told not to mention any names as he wasn’t doing it as favours for friends/family etc. He just wanted us to have some great places to go to which avoided the overpriced tourist areas.

We would highly recommend this tour for all ages of people.

Thanks George!

We had a great E-bike tour with George our fantastic guide. Athens was in the middle of a heat wave so electric bikes were very much appreciated during our hill climbs (bikes were top quality). George, our guide, was fantastic and took us around the city center to show the most famous historic sites. We also witnessed the change of the Guard, avoiding the crowded Parliament by going for the Presidential residence instead (less crowded and some shade from trees). It was a very enjoyable tour, at a good pace but very relaxed. Athens is a busy city, with lots of traffic but for those that might worry about safety I must stress that the tour was conducted in small streets with low traffic so no worries there (and George was super safety conscious). At the end of the tour George gave us plenty of recommendations for local restaurants. A great tour and I would highly recommend using Natalie and George to discover Athens with the locals!! Thanks George and Natalie!

This was an excellent way to see Athens! On our trip in June of 2018 (this review was a long time coming - sorry for the delay!) we took the tour on our first day in Athens, so we got to see which sites we wanted to revisit and spend more time. Our guide, George, was very knowledgeable on all the sights we visited. He was very nice and patient when we wanted to take photos and spend a bit more at certain sights. He took us through the city streets to see the ruins among the modern buildings as well as the more rural areas. The highlight had to be the changing of the guards, which he timed perfectly! The bikes were in good shape, and I would highly recommend the electric bikes due to the hills throughout Athens. The bikes were great, the people were great, all I can say is that I would highly recommend this tour!

George took 5 of us on a Athens cycle tour today - the historic info was perfectly pitched for us all including an eleven year old child. The electric bikes make the hills easy. Highly recommended.

Our bike tour with George was really fun! We biked early July on one of the first few days back for tourists. The biking was easy and we were able to get a really good feel of the city and get a good idea of what we wanted to do and see next. George was a great guide and provided a lot of good information regarding the historical sites. The changing of the guard was unexpected and really neat to see. At the end he laid out a map with really good restaurant and bar options. I highly recommend the tour! Wish we could have done another one :).

We booked the tour online. Our meeting point was the shop which is located by the acropolis. We were divided to 2 groups because there were too many of us.
The guide went through how to use the electric bike and made sure everyone is confident. Water and helmet were provided.
We visited most of the main sites without getting in. Watching the changing guards ceremony was a part of the tour and we had a break by the stadium towards half the tour.
It was fun experience and our guide was friendly and helpful. Overall i highly recommend it.

George (The Great) was our guide for the Athens Electric Bike Tour, he impressed us with his knowledge and humour. The bikes were very easy to ride and had more than enough power for the trip. We enjoyed our day so much that we booked a second tour and did The Coastal Route with Soti as our guide - she was fun and equally knowledgeable. The Tour has dedicated cycle paths and took us by the magnificent Stavropol Niachos Cultural Centre where we stopped for a peek. We rode on to a cafe on the beach and enjoyed a leisurely coffee whilst we watched the hardy folks swimming in the sea (February!)

This is the perfect way to see Athens!! We did this tour on our first full day in the city and it was the ideal way to start our trip! Our guide, Sotos, was terrific! He shared some great historical insights during our stops and took us through some beautiful parts of Athens that we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Sotos was a wonderful and patient host - as we took lots of photos and he took the time to answer our questions. He also shared some local knowledge for great places to visit and thanks to him we found several terrific neighborhoods/streets to explore further. This company is terrific for customer service! For example, on the day we went they ended up splitting the group and gave both groups a private tour. The bikes are comfortable and fun to use! The meeting point is in a lively area with vendors, a park, and lovely outside dining areas. Go early and treat yourself to a nice coffee before you start!

Excellent way to tour the amazing sites of Athens....the little extra boost from the electric bike was nice up some of the steeper hills of the tour. Our tour guide, George, was fantastic - very knowledgeable, great sense of humor, and extremely interactive throughout the entire tour. The tour was a great mix of riding and stopping - allowing for pictures, exploring, and listening...giving the backside a break from the bike seat (which were actually quite comfortable). Definitely a great way to see the sites of Athens.

My husband and I went on an ebike tour with Natalie. It ended up that it was just the 3 of us. The bike shop was easy to find, and the bikes were in good condition. We toured around for about 2 1/2-3 hours, stopping periodically for Natalie to share information. A couple of times we parked our bikes and walked. It’s not a deep historical or cultural dive but more of an overview. The biking was relatively easy although we had to watch for potholes and people. We really enjoyed our time and recommend this experience.
