Thanks so much Dimitris for the best six hours of our Athens visit.
We could never have seen so much of Athens in such a short space of time without you. The pace was perfect for our four children and us. The bikes were in excellent condition which made the whole trip a pleasure to cycle. The mix of the inner city and gardens followed by the ride to the ocean and back was perfect. Thanks also Dimitris for taking the time to help us get some excellent photos. This meant so much to my wife.
We would recommend that anyone who has a day spare in Athens to make your trip a must do, or even one of your half day tours. The six hour bike ride was perfect before our 20 hour plane ride home. Thanks again so much Dimitris and if you ever visit Christchurch please give us a call. I have a spare bike in the garage.
Took a private, half day tour of the coast & beaches of Athens. Dimitris was our tour leader – superb in every aspect of our adventure! From the get-go of our registration, he was friendly, efficient, professional & wonderful to deal with. During the tour, he provided awesome tips about how to enjoy Athens & allowed us to set the pace. Totally recommend Athens by Bike for your tour & especially if you are fortunate enough to score Dimitris as your tour leader! Thanks for a fantastic day (including the photos & recommendations) Dimitris 🙂
This is the most efficient way to explore Athens. It is highly advised you do this tour on the first day of arrival. I learnt a lot of tips and discovered many hidden gems on the tour but since it was my last day in Athens before flying to Karpathos, I couldn’t revisit certain places. Sapfo was our tour leader on this private tour. She was fun, tentative and we felt safe while riding with her. The ride was extremely easy and relaxing. So easy that we didn’t realise we had cycled for 28km. What a great way to burn some calories, getting ready for a nice dinner! Definitely a must do!
Easy and beautiful private ride through Athens and its Riviera. A nice way to see how Athenians live, outside down-town. Dimitris was an excellent tour leader. He showed us a different part of Athens and gave us much appreciated tips to help get the most out of it. The beach where we stopped is awesome, with extremely nice and clear water. One of the highlights of the tour was the stop at the bakey, where Dimitris offered us delicious Greek food, sweet and salted!
