Really enjoyed our e-bike adventure in Athens! It gave us an opportunity to see and experience Athens in a new way!! Our guide, Sotos, was very informative, friendly , and funny! Great day with perfect Dec weather!!
We had a fantastic time - what a great way to get an overview of Athens (much better than a hop on bus tour imo). Our guide George was very knowledgeable and was a great photographer for our family as well. My kids loved it. Highly recommend:)
Thank you George!
Three of us, all adults in our family, set off with George on a truly rewarding tour of Athens. The bikes were easy to use and our routes did not involve any roads. We went to the top spots but also so places we might have overlooked such as the Pnyx. George gave us background at each stop and he was very engaging. The pace was good with time to spend, for example, at the Olympic stadium, and to see the changing of the guard. Never rushed and we saw so much more having been on the tour. A really good and fun way to get your bearings and see a lot of Athens.

This was an excellent way to see the best of Athens and at sunset too and get exercise. I always do a bike tour when I visit a city for the first time and Kostas was the best guide so far. Warm knowledgeable funny and patient. He even helped me get a cab to our beach resort for the wedding i was attending in Athens.

Cover much more ground than walking while enjoying the flexibility to stop often and soak up scenes of daily life along the way.
Kimon was an excellent guide. Very professional, almost like a college professor. The walk up the hill was a good pace. Even though it wasn't real hot, he still found places of shade to give us a bit more history
our guide Eleni was patient, knowledgeable and made sure we were in shade during the tour. she answered questions. but the tour itself starts at bottom and goes to the top of parthenon. wish it were the other way around as by the time you get to top (the best part) you are overwhelmed with so many tourists. its good to get top part early when there are fewer tourists. it gets crowded.

Angeliki was very nice girl, and really knew what she’s talking about. She explained everything to us, and patiently answered all our question.

The Acropolis, Athens Walking City Tour and Acropolis Museum
Tiring but well worth it
, Oct 2019
We really enjoyed the tour. Irini was an excellent guide, providing us with a historical and cultural perspective to everything we saw. We wouldn't have appreciated the sights as much if we saw it on our own. We also appreciated her being a "shade ninja", making sure that most of the talks were done under a comfortable shade. The tour was tiring (of course, since we had to go up the acropolis), but well worth it!
This was a great tour. Our tour guide Stevie was very informative and the group was small. The Parthenon and the Acropolis Museum were amazing! Make sure to use your ticket to visit the newly discovered city under the Museum!
My husband and I loved this tour. Our guide Alexia was amazing. She took really good care of our group, making sure we always took breaks in the shade while she gave us a ton of interesting information. There’s so much history Athens, it’s definitely worth getting a guide to show you around.

Skip the Line: Acropolis of Athens Afternoon Walking Tour
, Nov 2019
Can’t say enough how wonderful this tour was!! Our guide was so nice knowledgeable and ready to show you her country. Completely astonishing views. Still amazed of what was built by hand. Ty for the experience and such a pleasant tour guide.
My wife and I traveled to Greece in early September and purchased this walking tour as part of seeing the ruins. We ran a little late but they were very accommodating and had someone wait for us while the rest of the tour started. It hasn’t really begun and climb to the ruins so that was good
Overall it was very very informative and being in a small/medium group helped a lot as you were able to listen to the guide and take it all in. Beware as there is a good amount of walking to do but that’s the case with the ruins in general, not just This tour. It was definitely worth it and we were happy with it
We found Christo’s to be extremely informative. Loved the computer dictions that he had in a book to show us of what it would have looked like when it was built. Answered all our questions and was great about giving us time to see everything on the way up! Marie Met us at the platform terminal where we were instructed to and they were great. It was raining that day and rain ponchos were provided. Loved that! Would completely recommend this company. I had done a bit of research myself before going but had we not taken the tour I wouldn’t have know what I was seeing. So worth the money!

If u have time to do only 1 thing in Athens then u must do this tour. Its the best and i think its because of the guide and now a friend Ms JIOTA .
She knows how to be entertaining /informative and yet pauses for just enough time for the people to soak up.all the sights & information. A DEFINITIVE YES .
Our guide Jiota (sp?) was very good, and I definitely recommend doing this tour in a smaller group. We had 13 people, and were able to keep up and hear everything that she had to say, in spite of the site being insanely busy, with some groups moving through other groups as the guides were speaking.
We learned a lot at both the Acropolis and at the Acropolis Museum. I appreciated the way Jiota moved us through the museum, picking out the highlights.
Our tour started at 9 am, so it was already getting very busy when we went through the gates at about 9:15. I'm not sure why this tour doesn't start earlier so as to avoid some of the crowds.
If you are going up to the Acropolis, do wear good shoes, as the top is rocky, and the rocks are very slippery from thousands of years of traffic.
Go by foot and get up-close to the ancient wonder of Athens’ Acropolis. Visit the Greek capital’s most-renowned monuments on this flexible half-day walking tour.

Athens Small Group Tour with Acropolis,Parthenon,Museum Including Meals
All day event w/ lunch, fun & informative
, Oct 2019
Our guides were informative & fun. Added the food tour added another 2-3hrs to the event. The booking did not account for the extra time for the added walking food tour, so we were lucky we didn't have anything planned that day. There was a lot of walking on flat ground, uphill, up stairs & on uneven stone. Even though it was October, it was still very hot. Wear stable shoes & dress for the heat.

We could not have asked for a better guide. Alex gave good information about the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum, the little bits of information that make a difference.. He was patient and kept a good pace for the dozen or so in our tour group. He was eager to answer questions. He was very professional. We would do another tour with Alex, and I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Athens.

This is a great way to see a touch of island life without giving up the vibrancy of the mainland. I do recommend arranging for their pickup because, although we love the Athenian public transportation system, this was more reliable for a hard departure time. The morning snacks were tasty and lunch was delicious. I enjoy being on the water and it was a relaxing trip. The islands are very quiet after the activity options you have in Athens and on the Coast. It was just enough relaxation for me. The seas were too tricky for the snorkeling in Moni.
