My husband and I booked this tour for our first day in Athens, and we were not disappointed. We met our tour guide, Andreas, a few minutes from our hotel at the Bike by Athens Shop. From there, he took us on a great tour through out the city, showing us stops we didn’t know about. Andreas, being born and raised in Athens, was a great guide, very knowledgeable about the city and knew a lot of historical backstory for each location from a local’s perspective. He had a great sense of humor and also pointed out a bunch of places to check out on our own, which was much appreciated. The bike ride itself was a fairly easy ride and would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to explore the city!

We had a blast on our bike tour of Athens. Our guide did a great job introducing us to allot of the sites around the old city of Athens. Our friendly guide also took us for some ice cream where we got to try some local flavors that were delicious. This bike ride was a great way to get a feel for the city and I strongly recommend this tour.

What a fun way to explore Athens! The bikes were adjusted to our height and of good quality. I was a little concerned beforehand about cycling in the heavy traffic of Athens, but there was no need for it. Our guide Dimitri was top notch! He told us a lot about his city. It was very interesting. We can definitely recommend this tour to get a good overview of the city, the sights and the different neighborhoods in the center.

So happy we decided to do the sunset bike tour, we were worried it was going to be way too hot (109) that day but our tour operator was great in making sure we had plenty of stops and shade along the way. Our guide (Julio) was knowledgeable, thoughtful and personable, he went out of his way to get to know each of his riders. I would highly recommend this tour, we had a Skip the Line Acropolis tour earlier in the day, so it was cool to get a recap of what we saw and many other sites like the Plaka and national gardens. We also saw the changing of the guard which was really special. Thanks Julio!

My sister and I took part in the Sunset Bike tour of Athens yesterday; a spur of the moment decision that absolutely paid off, we had a fantastic time!! Our tour guide Nesti was brilliant, he had lots of knowledge of Athens and it's history and we enjoyed chatting about the various landmarks around the city as well as the cycle around. I would recommend this to anyone, the cycle is gentle and such a lovely way to see the city.
Thanks Nesti!

This was the best bike tour I’ve ever been on not only because of the premise but mostly our guide, Dimitris! I’m soooo glad we took this tour on our first full day of Athens. Dimitris was extremely entertaining, thoughtful, and informative when showing us great views, telling awesome stories and jokes. After the tour, you will have an intimate knowledge of the city and how and where locals spend their time. He will also email you a guide of the hidden gems and places to check out that you saw so you won’t forget. From secret spots to the best angles to take pictures and even being your personal “selfie stick,” he is always willing to help. We need more people like this man giving tours, so if you happen to be a tour guide, take this tour and then, take notes!

Your long and in-depth feedback makes us proud of the services we provided and especially for Dimitris that he is an outstanding guide. Our approach about having fun and exploring the city doesn't end when the tour finishes, but it is our passion to share more info and tips with you also about the rest of your stay in Greece! Thanks once again!

Wasn’t sure what to expect with this tour but it is safe to say it went beyond my expectations. Our tour guide Dimos was so friendly and informative about the city and took time to ensure everyone was feeling comfortable. You will cycle up quiet streets and never anywhere too busy with some breaks in between. You get to see a lot more of the city and some quirky little streets you probably wouldn’t stumble across on foot. Highly recommend! Thank you to Dimos, our super tour guide!

Incredible tour! Dimitris did a great job providing funny, insightful, and interesting information about the city and its culture. We saw so many sites that I wanted to see but wouldn’t necessarily commit to walking to by itself. There was also an ice cream break in the middle, plenty of time for photos and questions, and special/secret spots for the best views of the Acropolis. I have already recommended this tour to other friends coming to Athens!

I always find biking a great way to explore a city. Our guide Dimos is a native of Athens, he is friendly, funny and knowledgeable about the city. We got to explore different parts of the city, had a VIP viewing of the change of Presidential Guards, and learn so much about the city and the country. Dimos is very helpful and he makes sure everyone in the group is welcome, even if you are a solo traveler. The route we took did not have much traffic so it was a safe and fun way to explore the city. I highly recommend the tour, it's the best way to burn off all the calories from the yummy food in Athens!

Dimos is a terrific guide! He is very engaging, knows his stuff and he has a great sense of humor. The tour provides a great overview of the city. Dimos includes very informative background information about the wonders that we visited.

Athens is a very hilly city, but I didn't feel that the ride was physically challenging.

I highly recommend this tour, and I will choose another one of his itineraries when I go back to Athens.
