Athens Sunset Bike Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
This 3h afternoon bike tour offers a chance to capture a sunset in Athens as you ride around the city and pass by all the must see locations. Admire the ancient monuments together with the bustling new part of the city during the afternoon breeze. Your tour leader will lead you to all the major sites together with some hidden spots and will give you all the necessary information in order to make your stay in Athens the most pleasant one.
  • Peddle through Athens on a top-quality bicycle
  • Get close to some of Athens’ most popular attractions
  • Navigate the city with an English-speaking guide
  • Enjoy views of the sunset over Athens
What to Expect
Meet your English-speaking guide in central Athens in the afternoon (departure changes depending on sunset timing). After gearing up with a bike and helmet, set out on an easy route that includes just a few hills. Peddle at a gentle pace through the city as you pass by its highlights. The route is flexible, but you’ll likely see ancient ruins like Keramikos Cemetery while also getting a feel for modern Greek life. You’ll get closer to attractions that you could in a car. When necessary, hop off your bike and walk it through pedestrian-only zones. At the conclusion of your tour, enjoy the view of the sunset over the city.

Hi again! Before the tour, our tour leaders will provide you with a correct bike for your height and there is time before the tour to adjust the bike. Of course, you can always ask for a size you feel more comfortable with!
