Zip through the Acropolis, the Roman Agora, and other Athens attractions when you book this exciting adventure of Ancient Athens. Your private tour brings two hours filled with a one-of-a-kind experience, where you tour Athens' ancient sites like the Syntagma Square and watching the spectacle of the changing of the guards.

Start your epic electric three-wheeled adventure with a meetup with your local tour guide in central Athens to learn how to ride your Trikke safely. After a safety lesson, you'll hit the road and explore some of the best sites of Ancient Athens, including the Tower of Wind, the Roman Agora, Hadrian's Library, and Plaka--the historic, hillside Athens neighborhood that offers a laid-back island feel. Zoom through the city's center, take photos along the way and ride through the Monastiraki Square, where you'll see its popular flea market filled with shops of handcrafted jewelry, unique antiques, and relics of war medals. Your tour guide will give you tidbits of the town's history and answer questions you may have about ancient Athens as you continue on your epic journey.

Your private tour also gives you the chance to witness the changing of the guards or evzones, which occurs hourly in front of the Parliament building. You'll also experience the beauty of the National Gardens, zoom past the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the Presidential Palace, which is the Hellenic Republic President's official home. The palace is guarded by the red-beret evzones and once served as the Royal Palace until Greece switch from a monarchy to a parliamentary republic government in the early 1970s.
