you can see much more by bike without getting tired.!! Nestea was nice, friendly & funny. It was a small group, 8 people & although I was worried about cycling on busy Athens roads we kept off these scary places & did parks & small or pedestrianised roads. A very pleasant way to spend the morning. Thanks

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this bike tour and highly recommend it! Dina was a great guide sharing her knowledge of the city as we covered a fairly leisurely 6.5 mile route. We saw so much we never would have discovered on our own, and thought the tour was a superb way to experience the amazing sights and sounds of Athens!

We booked this cycle tour to give us an introduction to Athens. The whole experience from finding the start point (this has not always been easy for us) the staff in the office very professional and most of all our guide Nesti was outstanding. We saw many of the major attractions and some hidden gems that we would never have found without him. He was so friendly and kind his knowledge amazing and his photo taking brilliant. Thank you we loved it all and was the highlight of our trip
