Our guide, known as “K”, was great! Helped us get sized to our bikes and led us off on a great ride! The stops and stories were fun and we were able to take some good pictures. K also helped us get oriented to the area in case we wanted to come back for eating and shopping. So eager to answer our questions.

This was my first bike tour and it was amazing. We managed to see many different things in a relatively short period of time (but with no rush!) and avoid being stuck in traffic. I'd say this is the best way to get some orientation in the city and learn about some hidden places. Dimos is an amazing guide and shared so many interesting stories. I'd say that the whole group had lovely time thanks to Dimos :)

The tour was a wonderful experience to get to know the city of Athens! The guide was super friendly and told us a lot about Greek history. We love it! And we recommend!! We did the tour as soon as we arrived in Athens and it was the best time because then we already knew where we wanted to go or not. Thanks!!
