Thank you so much to Kostas for a fabulous tour last week. It was so much fun and the perfect way to orientate ourselves before exploring on foot. We took up many of the suggestions and can highly recommend walking up Mount Lycabettus to watch the sun set over the acropolis...wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and would love to...

My fiancee and I did this tour. I could only book this on the phone as I was getting on the plane and they confirmed it without a deposit. They were waiting and ready for us when we arrived on the day. The bikes were well maintained and comfortable. The pace was good and the experience personal, with a funny... More

We were in Athens in Feb 2017. Although this may seem as a silly month to go, it was actually great because weather was okay (for dutch standards) and we had the city to ourselves. On our 2nd day we did the city bike tour with Kostas. It was cold and cloudy and we were the only ones who had... More

We met with Dimitris close to our hotel. Went on a four hour bike tour, easy ride, and we entertained with the history of Athens and the stories that we heard. It was absolutely perfect, stopped for an espresso along the way, which included more entertaining and interesting stories as well. Dimitris is awesome, was a pleasure to spend time... More

The "Good morning Athens" Tour is probably the best way to start your vacation in Athen. Kostas gave me great overview over the city. He was very thoughtful and informative. At the end of the tour he sent me an mail with some secret places and restaurants that i might visit. The restaurants and street food snacks were all very... More

What a great way to start your visit in Athens! In 3 hours, the morning city tour takes you to all the interesting places in the city center and gets you acquainted with the surroundings so you can later explore anything you want. We booked the tour in advance and it so happened it was only the two of us... More

Kostas was great. I was the only one booked that day so I had a private tour. My luggage had not yet made it to Greece with me so I didn't have a warmer jacket and Kostas loaned me a hat and gloves which was very much needed on a cold January day.

Absolutely fantastic way to explore the city, Kostas was really thoughtful and informative. Athens was nice and quiet in the morning, and we travelled around with ease. I will definitely do this again.

Excellent way to see the sights in Athens! We did the tour towards the end of our trip so had already seen most of the major venues. Our tour guide took that into account and did a great job of showing us another side of Athens that we hadn't seen yet. Really appreciated the personal touch and really great, friendly... More

My family and I traveled to Athens earlier this month and on our first full day did a bike tour with Manos and Demetrios. Biking is a great way to get the lay of the land of a new city, and our guides were super helpful and informative - even giving us tips for the best local eats at the... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
