Full description
Your tour leader will start with a 30-minute training session to help you get comfortable on your Segway. Within minutes you’ll realize just how easy and intuitive it is! The tour will start by visiting the area where, in antiquity, everything ended! Keramikos area was the ancient cemetery but also one of the entrances to Athens. Then follow almost the same path as the ancient Greeks to visit the Ancient Agora, the heart of ancient Athens and the Roman agora. Without breaking a sweat, drive over to the next stop, the most important one, Mars hill and the entrance to the Acropolis. Take in the sight of this majestic world icon from your unique viewpoint on a Segway as you visit from the outside. This is a perfect photo opportunity! But wait… there is more! From here, easily ride up the Pnyka Hill — no tired feet! — and discover its off-the-beaten track terraced area where democracy was born and follow the path that  leads on to Athens’(Acropolis) best panoramic view. Roll through the pedestrian street around the hill of Acropolis so as to meet the “Roman” part of the city, where the temple of Zeus and the gate of Andrian stands. Then visit the first modern Olympic “village”, the Zappion mansion and the Panathinaikon Stadium, to discover where the first modern Olympic Games took place andl glide on to the national gardens, to ease your mind like kings and queens used to do! A sure highlight of the day is the presidential guards, with their unique and meaningful uniform. Right before heading back, you will have the change to get a picture next to the guards, a must-do here in Athens! If you are looking for a fun, eco-friendly way to discover the best that Modern Athens has to offer in just a few hours – you’ll love this Modern Athens Segway Tour! You’ll cover more ground and see more without the effort it would take the cover the same route on foot.

This is a wonderful way to see the “must sees of Athens.” Our guide was knowledgeable and gave us an understanding behind the sites we were seeing! Easy to get the hang of a Segway quickly, and cover so much ground within a few hours of time. Would definitely recommend this type of tour when sightseeing.

What a great experience! Stellanos was just great and knowledgable about Athens. This was my first experience with a Segway and he made me feel very comfortable to the point that I was able to take pictures with my phone by the end of the tour while still moving along!

It is fun to stand on the Segway and to surf around Athens. It is much more easy than I thought. We visited many places, which we probably can't do all without on this Segway tour. Our host Anastasia is very nice and knowledgable. I highly recommend you try this tour!
