Central Athens Highlights Small Group Tour by TRIKKE
On your tour, pass Panathenaic Stadium — site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 — as well as the University of Athens, National Library and the neoclassical Academy of Athens. Glide through leafy Syntagma Square, and admire the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Greek Parliament and the Presidential Palace, guarded by the red-bereted soldiers of the Presidential Guard.
Ride the streets near the UNESCO-listed acropolis — the ancient citadel that Athens is famed for. Soak up the views over the archaeological showstopper and see the Lysicrates monument and octagonal Tower of Winds, an early Roman weather vane and water clock that stands within the ruins of the colonnaded Roman Agora. You’ll also delve into the Old Town neighborhood of Plaka to see its bustling cafes, bars and markets, and gain an insight into the lives of modern-day Athenians.
If you fancy time out on your tour, just ask your guide to take an optional stop for a snack or drinks (own expense) — your itinerary allows for a short break. After seeing the sights, ride back to the finish point in central Athens, where your tour ends.

Such a cool experience! My 10 year old didn't quite get the hang of the Trikke, so I thought I was going to have to sit the tour out, but our awesome guide Mike, took him on his Trikke and we were all able to enjoy the tour. :
Fantastic Tour option around Athens. Every tour is personal, so there s no need to worry about big groups. I thought the company was well organised and very professional. The Trikke was brilliant fun, very easy to operate and a unique way to see they city. You should definitely consider this tour when visiting Athens.... :
Awesome experience they were super friendly with me, and made new friends. This tour is a must if you are in Athens!
