To be honest we tried one of her bike tours in Athens. At the beginning we were afraid the idea of the traffic and cars, but at the end we enjoyed so much that we really suggest that tours!They have carefully chosen many different routes ; some in pavements, some in roads with less traffic some into parks and some in the main roads. That is the beauty of Athens!
Noisy, with a lot of alternations, peaceful in some spots, busy in some others and beautiful if you are with people to show you where locals hang out!That is the team of Monique, don’t miss out!
