  • Discover all of ancient Athens by bike, with a guided tour of the Acropolis
    (5/5) Mirjana 2 months ago

    A fun and educational bike plus walking tour

    · Athens Acropolis Bike Tour

    We were in a 4-day visit of Athens, and had a blast of stay in general, while this was definitely a highlight of our trip. The tour includes around 3 hours of bike tour to all major city sights, after which the bikes are left at the starting point, and from there on, a guided Acropolis walking tour takes on, which entrance is just like 10-min on foot from there. Very inclusive tour, and highly recommendable.

    All-inclusive tour of Athens

    · Athens Acropolis Bike Tour

    The perfect way to combine and experience the highlights of Athens city centre and Acropolis all at once. Our guide, Demos, knew a lot about the city, and shared a lot of interesting facts with us. A plus was also that our group was not too big, so we were able to move around easily.

    Best kind of Bike Trip

    · Founder's Tour: Turkey and Greece E-Bike & Boat tour

    This is our 4th bike and boat tour-if you ve never traveled this way you need to give it a try . What could be better than starting your day in a small harbor, with a wonderful breakfast on deck, then going for an exciting ride , coming back for a swim in the Adriatic, and then cruising to the next port in time for dinner? The food n the boat was plentiful and delicious. Because it’s a smaller boat we were able to spend time in smaller uncrowded harbors. He biking was challenging but the excellent e-bikes made it fun for all ages . Everyone on the boat agreed that two weeks was ideal-a one week trip just doesn’t give you enough time to settle in. There was never a dull day and if you don’t want to ride you can stay on the boat or walk the town-lots of options and flexibility. This would also be a good trip for a non rider in the family. I also highly recommend the Croatia bike and boat trip-it was fabulous. October is the best time to be in any of these places. The weather was warm enough to swim all the time and things weren’t as crowded as during the summer

    Excellent trip except the physical condition of the boat was unacceptable. IslAanding Hopping did a superb job as well as the boat crew. As we paid extra for our room we were very disappointed. We have traveled with Jim Johnson for 20 Yrs. All have been excellent as we continued to travel with Bike Tours. This trip was disappointing due to the condition of the boat.

    Great Trip with outstanding guides. Food was excellent and bike tours were perfect. The guides were very experienced and knowledgable. The boat cabin was comfortable. Only reason this wasn't given a 5 star is a number of issues on the Love Boat which have been addressed with the tour guides, company owner and boat owner. The Itinerary was also fantastic. A very good group which added to our enjoyment

    Cycling adventure in Greece!

    · Sparta and the Mediterranean Coast

    The trip was great! It is always such a unique experience to cycle and explore new places on bike. The people and the food in Greece is 10 out of 10!!
    Some days were a bit demanding (especially the first day) as we had non electric racers.
    The highligts were Gythio, Monemvasia and the island Elanfonosis, though every village is charming and worth visiting. The cycling paths were non traffical with few exceptions and we find the drivers very polite and gave us enough space. Self guided was not a problem as the app was great and easy to follow.
    As we had the trip in low season it was some times a bit hard to find a place opened for lunch but always managed in the end!
    Hopefully this was only the beginning of cycling in Greece.

    Overview of Athens by Bike

    · Athens Private Bike Tour

    A great way to get oriented in the city of Athens. The guide was very knowledgeable. The tour route was carefully selected to keep us off the busy streets which was much appreciated! We got the highlights and definitely saw things I would not have stumbled upon on my own (example: changing of the guards in front of the presidential residence). Just the right amount of history and some great photo ops (views of the Acropolis, etc) that felt like local secrets that other tourists would not have found.

    A big slice of Greece

    · Sparta and the Mediterranean Coast

    A great way to explore some of the smaller towns in Greece. There was a little more riding on roads with narrow or no shoulders than we had expected but drivers were generally courteous. We were not advised of a hotel change on the first day the ride which caused some unnecessary confusion.

    (4/5) Janice Guimond 11 months ago

    Loving Greece!

    · Greece: The Peloponnese Peninsula

    We had a really good tour. We love the self-guided approach, so that we can go at our own pace. The RideWithGPS app worked very well, and the turn-by-turn directions on it were excellent. We really appreciated the excellent restaurant recommendations (the food was SO good). The mix of scenery and culture were what we were seeking. The only reason I give this 4* instead of 5* is the issue of dogs. We were given a safety briefing and told how to deal with aggressive dogs, and that worked mostly, as long as we had time to react. There is a dog between Piana and Tripoli that raced out (with two other dogs) and I had no time to react and was bit on my leg. The bite broke the skin so I had to go to the hospital to get antibiotics and a tetanus shot. One of the other riders on the same itinerary was also bit by the very same dog! In Tripoli, we spoke to some locals who said, "we know that dog." So, this is a known issue, yet apparently no one has addressed it. One other rider on our itinerary got bit on a different day, by a different dog. So, that's 3 of 9 of us that got bitten. If not for the dog problem, this would be an excellent tour. As is, I still recommend it, but feel that riders should be aware of this issue. We had some very special interactions with locals, enjoyed the small towns along the route, LOVED Nafplio, and it was really fun to have three nights in Nafplio so that we didn't have to pack up our things as much. The bikes were very good. We didn't have any mechanical issues r flats, and the helmets were good (with visors). Things were organized well.

    Greek hospitality and history combine to make this an unforgettable experience

    · Greece: The Peloponnese Peninsula

    How better to learn than while enjoying something so good for the body? This trip, our third biking adventure, feeds the muscles and mind. The hospitality enjoyed was, without question, some of the best enjoyed anywhere. This all leaves an enduring impression.

    Stories are told as new ones are created. Over the course of this adventure, the Greek philosophers remind you of the value of a healthy body, healthy mind. History has a way of reminding us of our roots and progress. The journey was refreshing.

    It was a tour of contrasts, high in the mountains, down to the sea. We experienced life in villages and larger centers. We felt safe throughout and the tour operators responded immediately to all questions or concerns. For us, little things matter much and we were satisfied by those enjoyed.
