I strongly recommend this tour. Our Guide Marina who speaks 5 languages was very nice. We were able to see many points of interest such as th Acropolis,Parthenon, temple of Olympia, etc. We had our Tour in French. A GREAT TOUR

George was laid back, super information, and gave interesting facts you could only learn from a local. It was the best part of our day in Athens!! He set up our group of 8 perfectly (front row... without ANY stress!) just in time to see the changing of the guards in front of the President's residence. Wonderful recommendation for lunch as well. A must do!

George was an excellent guide. We got lucky with a small group so had plenty of time at all the monuments. The e-bikes were an easy way to see the city and lots of fun. He was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. At the end he gave us some personal recommendations on how to spend our time in the city.

This was one of the best decisions I have made on holiday! Using the Electric bikes to tour Athens enabled me, my husband and my 17 year old son to have a fun time riding together and visiting the sites of Athens. Much better than a walking tour for 2 hours! I would definately recommend this to others as we saw so much and was able to visit historical places, Athens old town and new town, including a flea market and much much more. 3 hours of fun exploration. Excellent day out!

The perfect way to quickly and easily see all the major sites of Athens. Our guide was great and the tour was very informative and fun.

George was a great guide! He was funny and shared with us some great landmarks and history. This was a good way to see the city especially since it is so hot! I cannot imagine doing walking tours this time of year. This is a good way to see many historic landmarks of Athens and it’s an enjoyable ride as we’ll

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide was very personable and informative (Marina). I saw things I did not know about and probably would have missed on my own. Totally recommend this company.

We were part of a small group to see various street art around Athens. The electric bikes were fantastic! Easy to ride and follow our guide. She was amazing. This was very enjoyable for my husband, son (age 14) and me. Highly recommend this tour at the start of your visit so you can then decide where you want to spend more time.

I cannot say enough great things about this tour. First of all, thank goodness for electric bikes. You can quickly get around, they are easy to ride, and you provide little to no effort. It's really the way to get a quick orientation to the city. Our tour guide, George, was a hoot. He is a pragmatic, funny man and kept us safe, informed, and laughing. Be aware that this tour is a quick overview of many of the sites in the area. Although let off for a few stops to view an attraction like the changing of the guard, for example, most stops last only a few minutes so George can do some explaining or point something out. What sets this tour apart from the others is that after the bike ride, George sat us down in the shade, provided each couple with a colored, detailed map of the area, and had us mark it up with what was where and what we should go see. He have people tips on where to eat, where to drink, what areas to avoid, etc. What a resource. I only wish that I had done this particular tour on our first day in Athens and not the 3rd. It would have saved me a lot time with my hit or miss searches.

My wife and I joined George and a small group for an excellent and fun tour of Athens. Practical, educational and enjoyable, we highly recommend it.

Electrify Bike Tour One of the great tours of all time. We saw so many sites from the ease and comfort afforded from the saddle of these electric cruises. How guard, George, was incredibly engaging. The bikes were easier to ride. Athens is very hilly. We saw people on regular bikes. Most of them were not having fun. The tour meanders through the trails of this ancient city like a hot knife through feta. We saw the changing of the guard in front of the palace, the roman baths, the acropolis, mars hill and so much more. The tour was very safe, rarely going on Athens's notorious busy traffic choke roads.

The outing was really fun and safe. We went in June so the crowds were not bad. Unfortunately, the National Garden was closed so we missed riding through the park. Highly recommend!

George was such a great tour guide. We had a group of 7 people and he took us all around the city and taught us all about Athens history. Then he gave us some awesome suggestions on other places in the city to spend our time while we were there. I definitely recommend doing this tour!

Great bike ride. Our guide navigated us through busy streets of Athens it happened to be Greece independence day and the crowds were out. Great experience.

Did this tour on a rainy day with 3 teenagers ...so we were expecting a lot! The tour is very informal and George, our guide, delivered the perfect balance of factual information and entertainment. The bikes are great fun, easy to ride and make getting around hilly Athens easy. We got a flavour of what Athens is about so that we could return to the things we wanted to see more of later in our holiday. George also gave us recommendation for places to eat and drink ....all of which were spot on! Great afternoon!!

Highly recommend. Our tour guide was very nice and interesting and went out of his way to make sure we had a good time. Also was very helpful recommending other things to do in the city.

I signed up for a group tour, but when I arrived at We-Bike Athens, I found that I was the only person on the tour. My guide, Sotiris, gave me a quick introduction to the electric bike which I had never tried and we were off to explore Athens. If you want to bike Athens, I highly recommend going with an electric bike tour because Athens is a city with lots of hills and we went up two really steep ones to get spectacular views of the city. Sotirus took me to most of the hot tourist spots - Temple of Zeus, Hephaestous Temple, Ancient Market of Athens, Zappeio Hall, Panathinaiko Stadium and Greek Parliament and the Queens Garden. Sotirus was very knowledgeable about Greek history and spoke English very well.

Just got back from Greece and would highly recommend this electric bike tour. George our guide was wonderful. He was full of information and humor. Riding the bikes through hilly Athens was fun and easy. The ease of riding the bike allowed you to enjoy the sites around you. It was a good way to orientate yourself to Athens before heading out on your own. George made sure when our tour was done that we knew where we were going, as well as, making some suggestions as to where locals go. Little Cooks in the Psirri area was a unique place for coffee and shopping at the Flee Market in Monastiraki were both great suggestions. Everyone in Athens was so helpful and friendly. Don't miss this tour on your visit to Greece. Thank you George for a great time!
