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.

What a great way to explore and orientate yourself around the old city. Our guide Kostas was super helpful, knowledgeable and patient. We are a family of four, two adults and two kids aged 12 and 16 and we all enjoyed the journey and the stories Kostas shared. Highly recommended.

Dimitris was fantastic!! He showed us all over the city, and gave us lots of tips about what to do in Athens. He was very kind, and friendly. We would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to get a better feel for the city of Athens and all the great places to see and experience.
