What people are saying about Makrygianni

Our tour guide, Odysseus, was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. He drove us around to all the tourist hotspots while explaining the historical relevance of each location. He even showed us around some of the local neighborhoods to get an authentic fee of Athena. We highly recommend Odysseus for your touring needs.

What an amazing way to discover the amazing and beautiful city of Athens. Well maintained bikes, knowledgable guide and lots of fun. If you have a good sense of direction and memory, you will be able to retrace your steps on foot another day, to go and re-visit the places that caught your eye whilst on the ride.

We took an evoke tour through Athens. Even though we had explored many spots in the city there were still some that were new to us. It’s a beautiful way to acquaint yourself with the city or gain a different perspective. Our entire family of 5 said they loved it!

Very knowledgeable guide named Anna. I will recommend her to anyone. Great tour! Carlos Lopes
