We had a group tour booked for mid-we've just got back from a few days in Athens and did a group tour with Kostas. It was easily one of the highlights of our trip. We turned up for our tour and found out it was just the two of us for the tour, so managed to benefit from an on the spot private tour. We were welcomed the minute we arrived and could instantly tell we had chosen the right place to go for a bike tour. Kostas knew the perfect spots to go to for amazing views of the Acropolis from all angles, ones we would have never found by ourselves, and his knowledge of everything was more than impressive. We saw a lot of great areas and had a fantastic time along the way, especially when we got some cake. The service didn't just stop there though, Kostas also recommended good places to eat and those to avoid and also helped us adjust hiking plans for the following day for somewhere better suited for the location. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Athens by bike.

My wife and I absolutely loved our bike tour. Our guide, Erietta, was really amazing. She took the time to get to know everyone on the tour and give recommendations to everyone based on our individual trip itineraries. She did a fantastic job as the guide explaining each stop/landmark thoroughly! Efcharistó Erietta!

The pace and length of the tour were perfect. We explored a couple different neighborhoods, saw all the major tourist attractions and learned a lot about the city and Greek history/culture along the way from our excellent guide, Danae. Danae was patient, skilled and full of knowledge. Definitely recommend this activity for anyone who wants to explore a lot of the city in a more active but relaxed way.
