A fantastic way to see Athens!

What a great excursion this was! We were able to see so much more in a short amount of time than had we done a walking tour. You do need to know how to ride a bike through small crowds though! Our Guide Stelios was very knowledgable and kept our group of 10 together. He gave us time to stop, take pictures and explore. The meal of souvlaki was very good!

This was an excellent way to see the sites in Athens with a friendly, knowledgeable guide. Danae took us to some interesting sites at a leisurely pace and told us about them at each stop. Afterwards, we enjoyed a gyro together and a little time for shopping before being placed in a cab for a ride back to the port. I highly recommend this excursion.

See Athens the most unique way!

Exceeded our expectations from start to finish! We were met at the pier promptly by driver and took to the office located a block away from the Acropolis Museum. The bikes were well maintained and worked perfectly. We were new to E-bikes, and they took their time acquainting us with the technology. Our guide, Constantine was fantastic! He took us to the main sites, as well as some parts of the city that are not always seen from a tourist, which made this tour so special. He was also very knowledgeable about the history and made Athens come alive through his explanations. We were fed an authentic snack (Sesame pretzel) and a great Gyro afterwards. We were returned to the ship(included in the price). Can't say enough about the great time we had, and the fantastic value for the money, HIGHLY RECOMMEND Solebike!! Would be a great way to start your stay if you are staying multiple days, or a quick overview if you're short on time.

Veyry nice tour
November 07, 2019
The tour was very nice start to finish. The bikes were in very good shape, and it turns out were e-bikes. We had never tried e-bikes but enjoyed the varying levels of assist offered. The tour leader was experienced, friendly and adaptive to the needs of the group we were in. For the few intersections with roadway traffic to be crossed, the leader kept things safe. The tour included lunch and another stop for Greek donuts. It was a good value for the cost. The couple who owned the tour business were equally nice. They explained in depth all questions about how the e-bikes worked and price ranges. Our group size was 4 riders and the leader.

I’ve been on many tours and this is by far the best one. Tour guide Alex was absolutely incredible as she was informative, fun and patient. The owner was also amazing. Great service overall. We got to see all the important monuments and stopped to have a quick lunch and doughnuts that were included. Very impressed!! Thanks guys for the great time! Love, Megan

We loved the bike tour! We were given a head set so that we could hear our tour guide. We rode around town and got to see everything. We were fed traditional Greek foods included in the cost of the tour. They arranged transportation for us to get back to port safely! If you take this tour and you are female wear capris or long shorts It will me more comfortable. Also be prepared to cross the busy streets of Athens, this tour could be nerve racking with children under 15. I would take a tour with them again though!!! Wonderful group of people!
