What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Athens Bike Ride from City to Coast

Enjoy a city to coast bike ride

Travel independently to the start point in central Athens and meet your private guide.

After a safety briefing, don your provided helmet, hop on your bike, and start your 4-hour tour. With your guide at the lead, ride at a leisurely pace through the bustling streets around the Acropolis and then pedal your way into Athens’ quieter neighborhoods.

Pass the Temple of Hephaestus, a magnificently preserved temple from 449 BC, and coast through Petralona, a village-like suburb where the streets are lined with buzzing tavernas and stalls. 


Maintain the relaxed pace, make regular stops to photograph the sights, and follow the coast road to the Athens Riviera — a string of seaside towns stretched along the Saronic Gulf of the Aegean Sea.

Arrive at the town of Palaio Faliro ranged along a wide, sandy bay and visit the Averof Museum. Housed in the Georgios Averof, a Greek battleship of both World War I and II, this floating museum is dedicated to Greece’s naval and nautical heritage. Head inside (own expense) with your guide and view the exhibits that chart the history of the Greek navy.

Back on two wheels, follow the seafront road to Faliro Marina. Admire the yachts in this chic marina and enjoy a drink (own expense) before riding around the picturesque green spaces of Flisvos Park.

Stop at a beachside taverna and enjoy a snack (own expense) as you soak in stunning views of the Aegean. Then, enjoy some free time to laze on the sands or take a dip in the sea.

Afterward, reconvene with your guide and cycle back to the start point in central Athens, where your tour concludes.

We were there in August, so the traffic was very light. It was very fun touring the city by bike. The exercise was great to shake off the jet lag. Kostas was a great tour guide!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Our tour guide Kostas was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The cycling is very relaxed and you get to see some beautiful coastline stretches as well as relax at the beach for a while. We really saw Athens in a new way and would definitely do it again.

I really enjoyed the trip. The scenery to get out of the city was not particularly scenic but my guide Vivian was very friendly and enthusiastic. The beach is beautiful and a lovely break from the city and the maratime museum worth a quick look. The trip is a great way to escape the city for a few hours
