Full description

Embark on an electric bike tour of Athens that combines the city’s ancient and modern sites, and enjoy panoramic views, picturesque streets, and well-known archeological sights along the way. Following a short briefing and test ride at the centrally located meeting point, cruise through a park to familiarize yourself with the bike before the start of your tour proper.

Glide effortlessly up the hill to Pnyka and Filoppappou, where there will be time to admire the views and take panoramic photos. Go to see the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Areios Pagos (Supreme Court) on the slopes of the Acropolis, before heading to the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch.

Along the way, discover some of the city’s more modern monuments, and look at the Evzones (guards) standing in front of the Parliament building in their colorful tunics. Travel through the National Gardens to arrive at the Panathenaic Stadium, the site of the very 1st Olympic Games. Then, cycle back through the narrow streets of Plaka to discover a picturesque neighborhood just steps from the Acropolis.

Stop to look at the Tower of Winds and discover the Roman and ancient markets, before heading back.

Our tour guide’s name was George. Super helpful with the bikes and always making sure we were safe. The pace of the rides were well monitored and not too fast. George provided great facts and history for each destination shop. The tour was not rushed and it’s a great way to get around Athens to view the sites. I would definitely recommend this tour

5 star. We took a private tour with Giota, and it was superb! Giota was so lovely and so friendly and we had a fun time exploring and learning some interesting facts and history about beautiful Athens. The electric bikes are a breeze and it’s a pleasant leisurely way to pack in the sightseeing when we didn’t have much time. Really recommend the guide and the company. They were super helpful when we dealt with them for the booking too. Well done team and thanks for a great tour :-)

This was a fun and easy way to see the city of Athens. Our kids (14 & 12) loved the ebikes and going at 8 pm meant we avoided the heat of the day. It was more informative than I thought it would be - more of a tour and less actual biking/exercise. Recommend highly!
