“E-bike tour of Athens”
Explore the city of Athens in a convenient way, by using our high quality e-bikes. Beat the uphills and sweat less during this amazing & semi-private group tour, as we pass by all the must-see locations and also some off-beaten paths.
We have chosen to provide ‘Pedal-Assist’ bikes for this tour, which are not to be mistaken with Electric Scooters. An electric motor amplifies your pedal stroke as you cycle. You start, stop and steer the bike exactly as you would with a conventional bicycle. Since we only have E-bikes available in standard adult bike sizes, this tour is recommended for guests over 160 cm height who are able cyclists.
What to expect
This morning electric bike tour lasts about 3.5 hours and it is a nice way to get yourselves oriented in the city of Athens. The ride takes place in the amazing historic city centre, on pedestrian areas, low traffic streets and parks and away from the traffic hustle.
Your local tour leader will head the tour, riding with you very close to the main archaeological sites and guiding you through some hidden areas, while providing you with a stunning experience!
During our 20-minute break, you will have the chance to taste a traditional Greek dessert or a refreshment/coffee (according to the season) and relax for a while.
We ride close to the new Acropolis Museum and the Ancient Cemetery of Kerameikos, through the neighborhood of Thission, while you enjoy a great view of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. We then, cycle through the Ancient Greek Agora and pass by the Roman Agora and Monastiraki flea market. We continue cycling in the historic district of Plaka, and then we move to the National Gardens, one of the best areas to ride downtown Athens. We will also stop in front of the Presidential Mansion to see the Presidential Guards, pass by the Panathenaic Stadium and Zappeion exhibition Hall.
