What people are saying about National Library of Greece

Really amazing day out with Sapfo who was so easy going, fun and very informative. Was very lucky to have Sapfo as my guide and will definitely book in again next time I am in Greece. Cycling around the historic areas, out through suburbs and along the coast was so much fun. Definitely will remember so much of what Sapfo was telling me about the history and culture today of Greece, also lots of great tips for future travel. Very comfortable bike and easy to arrange this tour.

The tour was at a pleasant pace, Athens has a specially marked bike path through the different districts of Athens, we stopped at different places and Henrietta our "tour guide" told us the story. She was there with "body and soul"! Great We found this tour really awesome, we saw so many beautiful and different sides of Athens that we would never have found on our own.
