The tour with Yiannis on our first day in Athens was the perfect activity. With the electric bikes you can get around to seeing so much in a short time and so much better than being in a vehicle - you can get a much better sense of the city, and we got to ride through the beautiful National Garden. Our two children, aged 14 and 11, had a great time too - not a hint of boredom from either of them and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Yiannis looked after us really well and was extremely knowledgeable. He offered flexibility if we had wanted to adjust the route too.

This is a wonderful way to see the “must sees of Athens.” Our guide was knowledgeable and gave us an understanding behind the sites we were seeing! Easy to get the hang of a Segway quickly, and cover so much ground within a few hours of time. Would definitely recommend this type of tour when sightseeing.

Very good orientation followed by a completely custom tour. Kostas made a point of learning what we were interested in and adjusting the tour as we went along. We loved every minute of this tour.

It was fun and after walking miles in the heat the day before this was a welcome change! It was easy to learn and our guide was knowledgeable and made it fun. On e if these things in our trip.

Such a nice experience. The tour guide is an amazing person and so friendly. I was by myself and he made it so personal and asked me a lot of questions as well. I'm happy I booked this tour.
