The bike ride was so much fun! Kostas was lovely and took us to some amazing locations. He was super helpful and gave us tips and advice on how to make the most of Athens. He made us all feel so comfortable and relaxed on the bike ride and we got to meet people from other parts of the world on the ride. He even took us to some instagrammable spots (perfect for four 20 year old students). He even took photos of us on our phones for us so we could keep the memories. He made sure we all stayed together as a group and learned all of our names almost instantly. (We’re south Asian so his effort was really appreciated). Don’t hesitate to book this experience, it was our favourite part of Athens!

My wife and I participated in the tour on our honeymoon last week and found that it was a fantastic way to explore Athens! We had already walked around the city a little bit, but read ahead of time where the tour would take us and made sure to save those spots for later. Our guide was fantastic, super kind and funny. We loved the route we went on; it wasn't too challenging, we loved all the sites we rode by, and it was well-paced. Our longest stop was to witness the changing of the guard, well worth it! I do recommend this being the first thing you do when you reach Athens, just because we had already been down some of the streets and had visited the Cathedral beforehand. However, even with the small repetition, we absolutely loved this tour, and it didn't take away from our enjoyment. If you're not a fan of biking through cities and weaving through crowds, I don't fully recommend this. However, we only had to weave through people once or twice and it wasn't bad at all.

What an amazing way to discover the amazing and beautiful city of Athens. Well maintained bikes, knowledgable guide and lots of fun. If you have a good sense of direction and memory, you will be able to retrace your steps on foot another day, to go and re-visit the places that caught your eye whilst on the ride.
