Description

The best tour to do on your first day in the city of Athens. It will help you get to know the area and be able to orientate yourself effectively for the rest of your stay.

We have experimented and explored the concept of this tour extensively and we can proudly say that we have created one of the easiest and most fun ways to explore the center. Away form traffic, just us and our bikes rolling through the city.

Easy. Safe. Educational.

  • Roman Agora
  • Plaka, Anafiotika
  • National Gardens
  • Change of the Guards
  • Greek Parliament
  • Panathenaic Stadium
  • Temple of Zeus
  • Odeon of Herodes Atticus

Frequenty Asked Questions

FAQ

Yes of course! You can find the private option at the booking section.

By choosing private you have the option of deciding on spot about how fast or slow the tour should move or what places you’d like to skip. You might as well choose to take a bunch of photos.

Private gives you the chance to connect more with your guide, to chat about anything that interests you.

Generally speaking, not so much. There are no bike lanes in the Center and the car drivers don’t really seem to care about pedestrians or cyclists. But this is exactly why we’ve spent so much time on planning this tour. The way we go about it, we never cycle along cars and we rarely even see them, besides a couple of crosswalks. We mostly cycle on pedestrian zones that are thankfully abundant in the Center.

We, as a company and as people are all for sustainability. We do believe that lithium batteries are not necessary to stroll around the city center, as the whole tour is not demanding at all, even for a unexperienced cyclist. People of all ages have done it and experienced Athens in a grounded, slightly slower manner while getting some light exercise as well. Reducing your carbon footprint is easier and more fun than you think, trust us on this one.

Yes, there are! Just contact us and let us know about the size of your group and we’ll get back to you with an offer and recommendations on routes that are more fun for larger groups!

Of course there are. Any bookings done at least 30 days ahead of the tour get 10% off.

This was a fantastic experience for the 5 of us. We were taken past all city highlights of historical value and otherwise. Our guide (unfortunately I don’t remember his name) was EXCELLENT, knowledgeable and considerate. He took us to spots where there were no tourists with amazing views of the city in general. A brilliant start to our stay in Athens.

This was just a perfect intro to the city- we (6 friends) all enjoyed it immensely. Very interesting stops and English speaking guides plus good bikes - and the key - a MUCH smaller group than the other tours! This is so important when navigating a big city. I had tried to get on a different tour and it was full - so I booked this one. SUCH a happy accident to find this one! You wouldn’t believe the final touch — a lovely table-clothed homemade lunch on the patio of the owners private flat! Best Greek salad we have had on our whole trip!

The city highlights bike tour was fabulous today. I had such a wonderful time. George, Alex & Efram did a great job showing me around, providing great stories about the ruins, classical Greece, modern Greece, democracy & government, history, art/culture and even a bit of flora and fauna. They asked me what I wanted and did I have a goal for the tour. Since it was my first day, I asked to get to know the city enough so I can walk around without the GPS. On the walk back to my hotel I queued up the google maps and only needed to check it a couple times. I definitely feel comfortable walking around the city now. Also, I am so appreciative and impressed with the snacks Greek Hospitality style!

What a fun experience! I only had about 24 hours in Athens in between other travel. I decided to do the Roll in Athens City Highlights tour to be able to see more of Athens in a short time. It was perfect! The guide was very knowledgeable, bike worked great, and I got to take in lots of sights and learn a lot of new things in just a few hours. Finishing the tour with snacks and view of the Acropolis was a perfect ending to a great tour! I would definitely sign up for another tour with them on future trips.

Have done many bike tours all over the world. This one was spectacular Kostas took us around the Acropolis and surrounding areas with breathtaking views. To top it all of we arrived back at the base (the apartment of Demosthenes) where we were surprised on the rooftop by a lovely light lunch cold beers and raki and again an amazing lookout over the Acropolis. Thank you all, it was stunning. And I definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting an out of the box experience of Athens.

We booked the City Highlights tour for our first morning in Athens. Demos and Kostas were excellent guides, with lots of information. The cycling was easy and enabled us to see the major sights and decide which to return to. The snacks and drinks up in the beautiful rooftop apartment were welcome, as were the restaurant suggestions. Demos sent many lovely photos by WhatsApp. It was a great start to our few days in such a great city. Totally recommended!
