Tour was fun and informative like you wouldn't believe. Kostas was the best tour guide I have had (and I've had lots), he has put so much time and effort into his tours and the information he gives it is clear he is extremely passionate. If you do one tour in Athens do this one.

Fabulous bike tour

Dimitris was an amazing guide - full of interesting stories and mythology. He paced the bike tour very well and we felt totally safe at all times. The bikes were in good condition and easy to ride. We had Dimitris all to ourselves as it was off season. Thoroughly enjoyable. A great introduction to Athens!

Highly recommend!

I had an excellent time on this tour. The route we took felt very safe and Dimos took us to some great vantage points off the beaten path. I did this tour on my first evening in town and it gave me a great lay of the land. Dimos was very knowledgeable about each site and gave me fantastic food recommendations afterwards. Thanks Dimos!!
