Athens City Highlights Segway Tour

Athens Shore Excursion: Athens Segway Tour

Select your desired start time for your 2-hour tour when you book. Then, meet your friendly guide, put on your provided helmet, and get a safety briefing and orientation session to familiarise yourself with your electric, self-balancing, two-wheeled Segway.

Once you’re ready, set off on your tour behind your guide with the rest of your group. Steer through the picturesque streets below the Acropolis and let your guide lead you into the heart of the old city.

Cruise to Hadrian’s Arch and pause for photos at this ancient Roman gateway as your guide shares fascinating facts about its construction by the Emperor Hadrian in 131 AD.

Continue by the Temple of Zeus, once the largest temple in ancient Greece, and then roll around the Zappeion Garden — a peaceful pocket of lawns and courtyards that adjoin the National Garden.

Come to a stop outside the Old Parliament House, where the Greek Parliament sat between 1875 and 1932; and gaze at the Presidential Mansion, the official residence of Greece’s president and the country's former royal palace.

Last but not least, ride on to the Panathinaikos, the stadium that played host to the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Take in the views of the 60,000-seater stadium as your guide recounts how it was built from marble and with the excavated remnants of an ancient Greek stadium.


Having explored Athens’ city highlights, glide back to the start point where your tour finishes.

I highly recommend this tour. Vera was an amazing tour guide. We took the Acropolis tour and she was very informative and funny. It was a great way to see a lot of ruins and get an idea of where we wanted to go later on foot!

Good tour, but spent a bit too much time in the park, and not enough seeing the sights. I took this tour and the Acropolis segway tour. Don't get me wrong, I recommend this tour, but if only have time for one, take the Acropolis segway tour instead of this one.

Awesome tour! Such fun and a relaxing and unique way to see the city and save our legs after lots of walking in other cities. Guide was very patient and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Athens. Segways are easy to operate and we highly recommend the tour to anyone

This tour was amazing! The tour guide was excellent, very informative, and very thorough. There was never any pressure. They made us feel completely at ease. Our tour was during the low tourism season. This made our tour feel very personal.

This was a great way for us to get oriented to Athens at the beginning of our short stay. We were late for the tour, but the friendly staff took us on our own personal tour. I forget our tour guide's name, but she was excellent. This was our first Segway experience and I can't believe we haven't tried it before. I can't wait to do another one.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! It was a blast watching pedestrians wave to us as we passed them by! Would definitely recommend.

We loved everything about our tour. It was the perfect way to start our 2 day visit to Athens. Costas, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the monuments and history of the city. We covered a lot of area on our Segway and there was no way we would have seen as much in the time we had on shore from our cruise. The equipment was well maintained and safe. Helmets were provided. I'd recommend Segway for anyone who thinks they are physically demanding. They're easy to operate and handle.
It was an awesome way to spend a beautiful day in Athens Greece!
