What You Can Expect
On the northeastern slopes of the Acropolis is the neighborhood of Plaka -- the city’s Old Town -- home to a cluster of trendy bars and cafés that you'll see as you pass through. Head into bustling Monastiraki, the quarter that’s famous for its colorful flea market and glide past the ruins of Hadrian’s Library – a Corinthian structure built by the Roman emperor in 132 AD.
Just to the east of Monastiraki is the district of Thiseio, home to the Ancient Agora of Athens; once the heart of the ancient city, it's now an intriguing courtyard ruin complete with Doric columns typical of the Classical era. After stopping to take photos and listen to tales about the agora from your guide, glide around, soaking up its highlights like the beautifully preserved Temple of Hephaestous.
Head outside the agora to see Athens’ New Acropolis Museum where hundreds of artifacts from the Acropolis’ Archaic period are now housed. As you weave back down the slopes of the Acropolis, pass Mars Hill where you can see the incredible Rock of Ares (Aereopagus) and marvel at the panoramic views over the city.
After exploring the highlights of the ancient site with your guide, glide back to a location near the start point where your tour ends.
We had a most incredible experience!!!!! Mom had a hard time finding balance on segway, Demi took extra time to get me comfortable and by the end, I didn't want to give it back! She was soooo knowledgeable about each historic site, and stopped to explain such that we had a very thorough tour of the sites of Athens! We will definitely recommend this tour!!! A
Segway tour was great fun! You don't walk up to Acropolis, but that was way too crowded. But, the street was hard to find, cab drivers can't find it, so be sure to print location map of Segway store.
We had beautiful weather and a fantastic tour guide Demi! She had a great sense of humor, a strong historical background and understanding of the area, and was very patient as we asked a lot of questions! A fantastic experience, if you can you should definitely do this excursion instead of walking the 15 km!
So fun!!! I had never been on a Segway before and the training before the tour was perfect. Demi was so good to stop and make sure we were all doing OK while on the tour and the information she gave us about the different monuments was great. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone going to Athens!
My son and I had an awesome time on this Segway Tour. Our guide was very careful in preparing us to drive the Segways and very helpful in telling us about the sites we were going to see. He was easy to understand, fun to converse with, and great as a guide. We had a blast driving the Segways and we had a gereat time discovering some sites that I had not even seen on the walking tour!!!
The tour was great .... Great experience.... Great knowledge of the place
Great fun! Was an easy way to see all of the major sights in Prague in one fell swoop.
Our tour guide, Anna, was fun to be around and made the trip very enjoyable!
Awesome tour, great guide and office staff. Wonderful way to see the city highlights
This was exactly what we wanted on a typical blazing hot day in Athens. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us just the right amount of historical knowledge allowing us to ask more questions as our small group desired. Of course the segways were great fun and we covered much more ground than we would have been able to in 2 days of walking. We turned a lot of heads as well. I highly recommend this experience.
Unfortunately we did not check our phone before arriving at the location alerting us that they could not accommodate our 10 AM reservation. Regardless, the staff expressed their apologies profusely but arranged a tour 2 hours later. This gave us time to hike to the top of the acropolis which was not Included in the tour. After a short meal at a local restaurant, we received a quick lesson on the Segway and we were off. The six of us were quite surprised with the ease of use of the Segway. Our guide, Chryss (sp?) was absolutely marvelous. We covered so much ground getting wonderful views of all the major attractions. You get very little opportunity to walk around any of the sites but that was ok with us. We were completely satisfied with this tour.
