Full description
Your tour leader will start with a 30-minute training session to help you get comfortable on your Segway. Within minutes you’ll realize just how easy and intuitive it is! Once you get your bearings, roll through the pedestrian street around the hill of Acropolis so as to meet the “Roman” part of the city, where the temple of Zeus and the gate of Andrian stands. Then, visit the first modern Olympic “village”, the Zappion mansion and the Panathinaikon Stadium, to discover where the first modern Olympic Games took place and then glide on the national gardens, to ease your minds like kings and queens used to do! A sure highlight of the day is the presidential guards, with their unique and meaningful uniform. Right before heading back, you will have the change to get a picture next to the guards, a must-do here in Athens! If you are looking for a fun, eco-friendly way to discover the best that Modern Athens has to offer in just a few hours – you’ll love the Modern Athens Segway Tour! You’ll cover more ground and see more without the effort it would take to cover the same route on foot. All tours depart from and end at our office near the Thission where a bathroom, free Wifi, and water are available to all of the guests.

Nice family walk with the activity manager and another young girl in training. Road safety respected. Good explanations on the sites and some anecdotes as the walk progresses. The manager did not hesitate to slightly modify the order of the visit so that we could enjoy the live changing of the guard with, as a bonus, photos with the guards. We recommend.
