My wife and I participated in the tour on our honeymoon last week and found that it was a fantastic way to explore Athens! We had already walked around the city a little bit, but read ahead of time where the tour would take us and made sure to save those spots for later. Our guide was fantastic, super kind and funny. We loved the route we went on; it wasn't too challenging, we loved all the sites we rode by, and it was well-paced. Our longest stop was to witness the changing of the guard, well worth it! I do recommend this being the first thing you do when you reach Athens, just because we had already been down some of the streets and had visited the Cathedral beforehand. However, even with the small repetition, we absolutely loved this tour, and it didn't take away from our enjoyment. If you're not a fan of biking through cities and weaving through crowds, I don't fully recommend this. However, we only had to weave through people once or twice and it wasn't bad at all.

Awesome experience to do on your first day in Athens. The guide gives you a lot of information to help orientate yourself and ideas for the upcoming days.
