This Thessaloniki bike tour will begin at the White Tower where your enthusiastic, local tour guide will be waiting for you. After piking up your bike and helmet, it is time to start riding down the waterfront! The bikes provided are electronic bikes, also known as E-bikes, making this biking experience a smooth and relaxing one. This family-friendly tour consists of an easygoing hour-long bike ride followed by a stroll through the city that includes a stop for refreshments and mezedes (Greek tapas) as well as several cultural stops to learn more about this historic city. After gliding on the e-bikes for about an hour we will enjoy our first stop at a café right by Thessaloniki’s waterfront. This is the time to enjoy a well-deserved local delicacy. Be sure to check out the water garden alongside the café that is filled with turtles, frogs, fish and other sea creatures. After our snacks, it is time to drop off our bikes and walk to one of Thessaloniki’s oldest mansions that dates back to the 1920’s. Once a home to wealthy merchants, it now operates as a bar. We’ll enjoy some craft beer here as our local guide shares stories of how the beer tradition started in Greece. On warm days we’ll enjoy our beers in the bar’s garden and on cooler days we’ll grab a seat indoors. Even though our tour ends here you’re more than welcome to stay longer with your friends and family to enjoy some beers! Last but not least, be sure to ask your local guide any questions you might have about Thessaloniki!
