We went to all the important sites and enjoys seeing alternative sites like the gardens ans the change of guard at a non-crowded location. The guide was really nice and approachable. The ice cream (and rest) half way through the experience was very welcomed

The tour was great. Bikes were in good condition, helmets were comfortable and I didn't find the ride very difficult (I'm not a regular rider). We covered many points of interest with plenty of stops along the way to rest and take photos, and was a good introduction to the city.

We had a fab morning cycle ride. We had an energetic and knowledgable guide. We saw Athens from lots of great places and heard some nice historical info. The changing of the guards and the tasty ice-cream was a highlight. I definitely would recommend it. Thanks guys.

Great tour, I really enjoyed seeing Athens by bike. Costas was a great and friendly host, he gave it the personal touch and offered lots of tips. Covid safe, Costas would sanitize his hands before offering to take your photo. It wasn't too difficult to cycle, it was a nice pace
