What people are saying about Academy of Athens

Great tour and food, very nice bikes

It was exceptionally good. The bikes are well maintained, brakes work perfectly. You may choose a bike according to your height, which is really thoughtful. The electric assistance is of high quality (bosch engine) and I never needed more then first level of it, even uphill. We've learned a lot about which places deserve a visit, which is helpful if you've only came to Athens, so you now where to go after the tour. The food was great. We've had loukumades and gyros, as well as water (coffee or soft drinks not included, but not expensive at all). You may choose nuts or no nuts for loukumades and pork or chicken for gyros (there might be more options too). After the tour we were given a beautifully designed map of Athens and given any advice we wanted on restaurants, cafes or sights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend starting your visit with them.

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
