We enjoyed our ride around Athens to the coast line. Our guide was very friendly and did a great job catering our ride to our rising style. It was nice to ride around and see the different parts of the city but, especially fun to see all the boats at the port. We stopped for some local treats including some wonderful Bourekas to which our guide treated to us. We also got a great recommendation for dinner restaurant which was fantastic. I definitely recommend this tour during your next trip to Athens.

Very nice exploration of the sights of Athens with practical tips and locations for tourists who are in Athens for the first time. Dimitri was a TOP guide who was able to give a lot of information and background information in a relaxed manner. Tour highly recommended, easy to do even without an e-bike.
