Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Athens Bike Tour: City Highlights. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Bike tours are my personal favourite way to see a new place and this one didn't disappoint. Our guide Vivienne showed us the city highlights on a easy 3hour tour, packed with interesting information that makes the whole experience real, time for refreshments too.
Our guide Vivian was very knowledgeable and included visiting some local markets and bakeries serving traditional food as part of the tour. The ride was easy and streets were not crowded as has been the case when we did this tour in other cities. We were able to cover a large area in a short time. Highly recommended.
Excellent experience overall. Great way to see the highlights of the city and learn of its history from an informed guide. Vivianne was an outstanding host and guide. Highly recommend!
Great way to see the areas surrounding the world famous Acropolis. Our guide was informative and helpful. Navigating through the busy Athens streets and historical sites was an experience that my wife and I will never forget! Highly recommended!
This was a great tour. We truly enjoyed seeing the city from a local's perspective. You won't regret going on this tour.
The perfect tour! The guide is a real expert and you get more than wonderful sightseeings: chance to try some nice typical places with traditional pastry and feel the senses of this city!
Great tour that allowed us to explore different parts of the city. Amazing guide. Fun and informative!
Excellent Trip that covered everything in just a few hours. Suggest you take it on your first day to get to know the City. Many Thanks
Fabulous city tour on a bike - so much fun. Our guide Vivian was absolutely wonderful and very knowledgeable. We took this tour the morning after we arrived in Athens - great way to get acclimated to the city.
Vivian was a wonderful bicycle tour guide. We started with a couple of the popular historical sites, but after that, WOW, we bicycled through the city and were able to see up close where the locals go! The meat market, fish market, local pastry shop, tiny churches..places we would not have seen without a guide. Four hours of good exercise, in a beautiful city. Thank you.
We had a great time on our tour with our knowledgeable guide, Vivian. With only one day in Athens, this tour gave a great overview of the city. Vivian went above and beyond to provide suggestions for places to eat, drink, etc. Traffic can make biking a little tight (and slow) at times, but the bikes allowed us to cover so much more ground than we otherwise would have without them. Overall a great tour!
So much fun and informative. Not too difficult. She made many stops and most of the city is flat. Beautiful city!
Vivan has been outstanding guide on this tour. Overall around 4 hours with two pit stops for grabbing the traditional greek snacks has been fantastic. Its a fun way to see Athens and learn about the magnificent city ! and nevertheless seeing Athens through the eyes of a person born and brought up in Athens is going to change the way you look and love this beautiful city !
Excellent use of time and money. We enjoyed 6-7 different neighborhoods with an experienced guide Kristas who was friendly and knowledgeable. For anyone comfortable on a bike, I have found these types of tours are the best way to explore a city and really gain an appreciation for the city at large. The Greek pretzel and fried donuts (with honey) at two different locales added a special touch.
Vivian was an absolutely wonderful tour guide. She is a true Athenian and showed us several places I had never before seen even though I have been to Athens several times. She was patient and fun. We tried some traditional Greek food and dessert. Everything was terrific. I wish every tour I have taken could be like hers!
Excellent way to see Athens from a resident's perspective. Bicycles are in good shape and Vivian is an excellent tour guide. 3hours is just enough.
We were the only 2 guests of the tour that day and the guide was very friendly. He had a great knowledge of the history and knew how to make it interesting without being too much. We saw every highlight in the city, it was an excellent way to fight the jetlag and have an overview of everything, at the beginning of our trip. It was one of the most exciting things I did during my trip in Greece!
It was a great way to start seeing the sites of Athens, our guide Vivian was excellent. Would recommend this tour to others. Thanks viator!
IF YOU CAN ONLY DO ONE TOUR OF ATHENS, IT SHOULD BE THIS!!!! Our tour guide, Santos, was absolutely fabulous! He was knowledgeable, friendly, and just a joy to spend the day with! He provided a fabulous mix of tourist attractions and off-the-beaten-path cultural experiences that really provided a great taste (pun intended) of Greece. This was an amazing way to see the city! Best $40 I have ever spent.
Great way to see and learn about the city in a very short time. Our guide, Costas,
was passionate and proud of his city. He really did a wonderful job explaining the history and mindset of the
Greek people in a very thoughtful, authentic way. His knowledge and experience in the army was particularly
interesting. We are a family of 4, including 2 teens 13 and 17. The day was boiling and we all still had a fun time!
We had only 1 full day in Athens and ' Kosta's' took us on a great tour. We were privy to the amazing history (kosta's has outstanding knowledge) of this city/country as well as exploring the local city precincts and markets. We peddled and snacked away our 3 hrs away - great fun!!
