About
Few visitors get a chance to visit the coast of Athens. Riding a bicycle through the city and to the coast is the best way for an active visitor to take in the sights. Take a bicycle and a helmet and peddle past the Parthenon and to the Saronic Bay with your guide. Enjoy leisure time at the Flisvos Marina and stop at the ancient Keramikos cemetery.

Very recommendable tour
Oct 2020 • Solo
On our trip to the coast we crossed different neighbourhoods, away from the tourist center of Athens. I was surprised how easily you can get to the sea by bicycle, there is even a bycicle lane. The marina is impressive and having a Coffee at the beach was lovely. Our tourguide was super friendly and took us to his favourite pie place on the way back.

Great bike tours
Oct 2020
I did the city tour on my first day. Great way to get a feel for the city. Covered various different areas and stayed off busy roads.
On my final day I did the coastal tour. Loved this. Great to check out Athens' one bike lane and see some more residential/ less touristy parts of city. Guide was great, full of interesting information. Lovely to have dip in ocean before heading back.

A perfect bike ride for an active holiday!
Sep 2020 • Family
First of all a big thank to the team for their flexibility and allowing my 8 years old boy to do the tour! It really made both our day! We enjoyed every kilometer of the tour and highly appreciated that the guide payed attention to keep the group together and as a sweet lover I could not have been more delighted at the bakery stop on the way for a taste of local pastry :-)...if you haven't yet please try bougatsa!!!!
In other words, I highly recommend this tour!!!!

Great bike tour
I’m so glad we did this tour. It was the first thing we did in Athens and it gave us a fun and useful overview of the city. I’m not a confident cyclist but the tour leader made me feel very safe and relaxed. He also gave us many tips for Athens and Greece in general. Most of the tour was on cycle paths and quiet pedestrian roads, at a relaxed pace. The coast was beautiful. The whole tour was just awesome - give it a go!

Bike to the Coast with Dimitris
Aug 2019
After spending two days in Athens, me and my girlfriend were looking to see something outside of the downtown area we had already toured by foot. Dimitris (our guide) showed us parts of the downtown area but then guided us all the way to the coast with interesting facts along the way. We had a fantastic time and would recommend it to anyone looking to explore Athens from a different perspective.

Awesome time cruising around the city
Sep 2019
I went for the group coastal bike tour and had Danae as my guide. Since there was a cancellation from another party it ended up just being the two of us. She was awesome! Took me around the city, making stops and chatting about Athens, Greece, traveling and all the wonders that the world has to offer. A really great guide who was a pleasure to just have a normal conversation. Highly recommend!

Absolutely must do!
Feb 2020
This half-day trip is perfectly planned to see as much as you can for a short stay in Athens. Our guide Dimitris made the trip even more interesting by showing us hidden spots and telling us funny stories about Greek history. You can even learn Greek language with him as he will find an easy way to explain words:)

One more tip: take this ride as a first thing you do in Athens as Dimitris will also give you great recommendations for food, bars,other trips so you won't need to research on your own;)

Fabulous riding through the beautiful coast of Athens
I write this review not only as a traveller who loves to make a bike tour in different cities but also as a professional bike tour guide from Istanbul. I joined the classic bike tour of Athens by bike and visited the highlights of Athens with this half day tour. Our guide, Dimos was very friendly and has extensive knowledge about his home city. He gave us detailed information about the places which we visited and we had an interesting conversation about the etymology of greek words which are used globally in different languages. Their bikes were nice and comfortable, the itinerary was very safe.
Thank you Dimos for this wonderful experience, efharisto poli !

Fabulous experience!
Feb 2020
This tour, in combination with the city tour, (also 5 stars) gives you a really comprehensive overview of Athens. It takes you off the beaten tourist track going through residential neighbourhoods, alongside the spectacular new opera house and a nice long ride along the beachfront. Kostas, our guide, was highly entertaining but also very professional and was always looking out for our safety. I absolutely loved every minute of it. The bikes were great too! Thank you Athens by Bike. I'll be back!!

Gentle ride to the beach and a different side of Athens
Dimitris guided my teenage son and I and one other guest on a lovely gentle bike ride today through some of the sites and neighbourhoods surrounding the Acropolis, and then along a bike route out to the coast.
It offered a different perspective on this great city and no shortage of new information coming from Dimitris - personable, well-informed, and a very good choice to spend a morning with.
Bikes were good quality and well-maintained. Helmets clean. Shop easy to find. Timings accurate. Really good experience all round.
Thank you from us both!
