What people are saying about Ancient Agora of Athens

This tour was one of the best we have ever been on, and Kostas, our tour guide, was an important reason why - he was very attenitive to every participant and spoke excellent english. Athens are quite big, so doing a tour with bycicles turned out to be an excellent choice. We did another tour - with a supposedly “premium” company - which we were not nearly as pleased with.

It was such a pleasure to cycle through the city with Kostas. Kostas was one of the best and kindest tour guides I’ve had so far in my life. I highly recommend this tour for your first day in Athens, especially when you only have 1-3 days. We saw a lot of the beautiful and vibrant city. Thank you to Kostas! Mees and I loved the tour and all the spots you showed us!

A great way to get to know Athens on the first day. Dimos was an excellent, super friendly, and knowledgable tour guide. I strongly recommend taking this tour for your first activity in Athens.

Julio was amazing. He had a great energy, answered everyone’s questions and gave insights on where to go and what to see in Athens.

Perfect organised and bikes well maintained. Easy and nice way to have a glimpse of the hot spots.
