What You Can Expect

Acropolis of Athens Segway Tour

Acropolis of Athens

Meet your local guide at your chosen time – 10am, 12pm or 4pm – and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll glide along tree-lined streets to the foothills of the UNESCO-listed Acropolis of Athens – the ancient citadel and archeological site that dominates the city.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Highly recommended for a fun experience, especially with a teenager in tow. Neither of us had been on a Segway before, but with minimal training on a side road at the meeting point, got going easily and quickly gained in confidence during our 2 hour tour. Tour guide was helpful with both information and the Segway. Great for getting our bearings around Historic Athens on our 1st day and went at a good pace. Only downer was slightly too long a stop in Monistiraki Square where it was boiling hot and shameless, a long stop there was unnecessary. 15 yr old DD says 'Segway tour was so amazingly fun'.

Words cannot express the awesome-ness of this segway tour! The company was awesome! The tour guide was awesome! The other tour-goers were awesome! You got to see more of Athens in a couple of hours than would be possible any other way.

I know I have used the word awesome quite a bit, but this truly was one of the highlights of our trip!

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!

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.
