The guide was very nice, knows the history of all the places he took us to. He made sure that we did not run out of water. He drove us along narrow streets, showed us the best restaurants, warned us about dangerous places in the evenings.

Great! The electric bike tour allows you to see as much as possible in one morning. Sophie was a great guide and introduced us to all the main places of interest in Athens. And the breaks to taste loukoumades and souvlaki were a plus
