Athens sights and tastings on an eBike

Athens, Greece

Experience hosted by Costas

4 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

This is a journey into the history of Athens from the present to the ancient city. Cycling in the modern part and later in the old town, we will experience the different periods of a 3000 years period through buildings, monuments, anekdotes and local tastes.
We start from Athens of the first modern Olympic Games, meeting the Stadium, Zappeion, the National Garden to continue with the majestic buildings of the more recent history, the Palace at Syntagma, the University and the Academy.
The shopping center dominates the next part of our journey and is characterized by the City Hall, the Municipal Market, the special neighborhood of Psirri and the thriving square of Agia Irini. Somewhere between these sights, we stop for a sweet posture for local delicacy.
Our trip continues with us entering the ancient alleys of the city. The Hadrian’s library, the Kerameikos and the Ancient Agora are some of this section’s emblematic sights. A short break to enjoy the famous Greek snack in the shades of Thissio Park.
The route of the Acropolis rock reveals the Areopagus, the hidden Anafiotika and leads us to Plaka, the oldest neighborhood of Athens, among the beautiful and the many sparkling shops.
Other things to note
Please note that eBike is like a regular one so one should have cycling skills to safely attend the tour.

In the last 30 years I have been cycling from the high mountains to the crowded cities in Greece. I love the convenience and the potential of an electric bicycle and I am the first to use it for sightseeing tour in Athens back from 2014. Since then, I have guided hundreds of visitors from all over the world. I love a good story and I appreciate the authentic things, flavors and places that I discover with my electric bike. These are the experiences I want to share with all of my guests, myself and my colleagues.

Amalia's balcony at the National Garden, the café that served the first ice cream in Athens, the first royal residence, the boundaries of Neapolis, the residense of a German Indiana Jones, the first theater at the birth of the Greek capital, the trail of a lost river, the square of the heroes.

Eine Tour die man jedermann empfehlen kann! So viel sehen und erfahren kann man niemals in dieser Zeit, wenn man zu Fuß alleine herumirrt, vielleicht noch einen Fremdenführer vor dem Kopf. Mit einem Head-set ausgestattet, kann man den Erklärungen mühelos folgen. Anstrengend ist es auch nicht- es geht auch ohne E- Unterstützung - und mit E-Bike kann das jeder, der noch keine Pflegestufe hat. Der Preis ist ein Schnäppchen, wenn man bedenkt das man auch noch verpflegt wird. Und die Begleitung durch 2 wunderschöne Griechinnen...

Excellent bike ride. We discovered areas that we may have missed. Our tour guide, Maria Christina, was very friendly and knowledgeable. The bikes have an electric motor assist, no difficulty in pedaling up and down hills. This is coming from a 60 year old man. Easy for anybody.

This was a wonderful way to explore some of the major sites of central Athens in three to four hours. Our guide (Dimmy) was fun and relaxed and made our experience fun and informative. Highly recommend the ebike tour of Athens.
