We are a family that travels often and we have taken more than a dozen bike tours across Europe, some private and some in groups. Julio was without a doubt the best bike tour guide we have met. Our children (and the adults) loved every moment of riding around Athens and it’s costal area with him! Julio was very knowledgeable about Greek history, both ancient and current, and gave us great advice on where to visit and dine during the rest of our time in Athens. The coastal tour was especially valuable for us, as it got us outside the ancient Athens area and exposed us to areas of the city we would not have otherwise visited. The marina, opera house, and opportunity to swim in the ocean halfway through the tour were highlights. If you are planning a trip to Athens, be sure to book a bike tour with Julio!

Our coastal bike tour with Kostas was amazing! Perfect for a family day. Kostas kept a very leisurely pace which was perfect to take in the sights. We stayed mainly on the bike paths and he made sure we were safe when crossing streets, etc. It was fantastic to see parts of the city we would not have known to explore. While the distance may seem long, it felt like we only cycled a couple kilometers! Perfect for all ages, especially for my two younger teenagers. A special treat was the stop at a local eating establishment known mainly to locals where we devoured delicious sweet and savory treats! A place Kostas frequented as a child. What an extra special treat!
The coastal bike tour is a must for all ages!

An excellent opportunity to see less-familiar areas of Athens. Well-planned and organized. Our guide Andreas clearly loves his home city and enjoys sharing it with visitors. He meets each rider at their own level, provides clear instructions and directions, and his presentation is both informative and entertaining. A great way to see Athens!

This was an amazing experience. When I arrived, I learned I was the only person who had signed up for this tour, which is borderline criminal given how awesome it is. I’m incredibly grateful they didn’t cancel on me and Kostas was an amazing guide. Not only did he take me on a fun bike ride, he pointed out many parts of Athens I’d never otherwise have gone to, taught me about their history and culture, and even patiently helped me work on my quite bad greek. Ευχάριστω, Κώστα, μιλάω τα ελληνικά κακά ακόμα, αλλά καλύτερα από χθες. Dipping into the Mediterranean Sea at the end of this awesome ride is a memory I’ll cherish forever.

Hello Emma! We appreciate the fact that you appreciate the bike ride to the Athenian Riviera. It is an amazing bike tour and we do our best in order to attract more bikers to join us, to discover a hidden part of Athens. Kostas is an amazing and experienced guide and he put all his effort in any case!:) And he can teach Greek too, hehe! Many greetings!

The coastal bike tour was AMAZING! Kostas was an excellent guide and cyclist. He had great information and knew the city well. Don’t be frightened by the distance, it is not a challenging ride and a great way to see a completely different side of Athens. The beach was beautiful and Kostas had great information of other things to do in Athens and Greece. Would absolutely do it again and recommend to anyone who wants to see more of Athens than the normal tourist sites.

An awesome way to see Athens. Very Scenic route made even better by our guide's (Dimitri's) commentary along the way which includes history, greek culture and showing you great local spots around town for coffee, sunsets, food, beaches and more.

Great bikes as well!

Would definitely recommend this tour for cyclists of all levels.

On our trip to the coast we crossed different neighbourhoods, away from the tourist center of Athens. I was surprised how easily you can get to the sea by bicycle, there is even a bycicle lane. The marina is impressive and having a Coffee at the beach was lovely. Our tourguide was super friendly and took us to his favourite pie place on the way back.

I did the city tour on my first day. Great way to get a feel for the city. Covered various different areas and stayed off busy roads.
On my final day I did the coastal tour. Loved this. Great to check out Athens' one bike lane and see some more residential/ less touristy parts of city. Guide was great, full of interesting information. Lovely to have dip in ocean before heading back.
