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.

Glide effortlessly up the hill to Pnyka and Filoppappou, where there will be time to admire the views and take panoramic photos.

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.

This was superb! I would highly recommend this ebike tour

Our guide led us through paths which were not too difficult for those who do not cycle routinely. His commentary was informative, interesting and contained surprises: he got us to a certain corner to see the parade of the changing of the guard without the crowds. I just loved his offer to photograph tour members at iconic sites such as with the Acropolis in background. At the end of our tour, he capped it off with several small but traditional Greek gifts, as it was my birthday...he helped make it memorable!

Best way to orientate yourself in Athens

We loved this tour and Marina, the tourguide's guidance and extra info. Opportunity to take beautiful photos. E-bikes makes it a fun, quick and easy way to zip between the different sites. Bikes in excellent condition. Loved the close up of the changing of the guards. Think it would be great to do the evening slot to see the monument lights. Beats a walking tour anytime.
