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 great time. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. We saw so much and learned so much. I highly recommend this tour!
My daughters and I did the Acropolis Segway tour and had a blast! I was slightly concerned that my 12 year old might have an issue picking up how to control the Segway, but she had zero issues and the team was great with showing us what to do before we headed out. Terrific way to see some sights without tiring out your legs : It was 101 degrees the day we did the tour so riding was most certainly preferable to walking!
Brilliant tour! Very friendly and knowledgeable team. Would highly recommend it.
I have done Segway tours in many cities and countries, and this is one of the best. Great way to see the sights without the burden of the walk, and in Athens, that is a burden. Great tour highly recommend. The Segways are easy to master.
Very Patient, friendly instructors with a superb knowledge of Athens
We all loved it! Fun and educational - a wonderful part of our trip to to this beautiful City
The tour of the Acropolis area was absolutely the best way to see a lot of Athens in a short amount of time. It was also much easier in the heat on the segways. Our tour guide was knowledgable and very helpful and friendly.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
Fantastic but give yourself time to find them.
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!
