My two teen sons, wife and I really enjoyed this bike tour with our guide "K" (he told us his full name was long and complicated). It was a perfect way to get to know the layout of some of the major sights and neighborhoods all around central Athens -- I really liked that it took us outside of Plaka. The pace was very gentle so it wasn't too demanding, even in the heat. K warned us before a couple of hilly parts, but most people would find this a very easy, gentle ride. K (who actually grew up in the US and spoke perfect English) told us some interesting stories to complement what we saw. I would highly recommend this tour to folks new to Athens as a way to get oriented, before you go deeper into some of the sites you'll see on this tour.

Wonderful tour around Athens with unique views of attractions. My only complaint is that sometimes the guide went a bit too fast and it was hard to keep up, particularly when you wanted to be taking in the sights but instead had to be sure to could still see what turns the guide was taking. Wish a stop could also have been made at the Tower of the Four Winds

Good tour-moderate exertion if you are in shape. Some rented an e-bike which was less of a struggle on hills . Gave us an overview of the area as we are returning in a week and wanted a “lay of the land”. Wish we stopped a little longer for pictures but we did get a lot of ground covered.
