National Gardens segway tour
Explore ancient and modern Athens in an easy and fun segway tour that allows you visit the most important sites of the city, followed by a pleasant ride inside the National Garden of Athens.
The unique National Garden Tour is the perfect way to explore that part of the city where Antiquity meets the Modern Times. From the Temple of Zeus, the biggest ancient temple of the city, where the lighting of the Winter Olympic Flame takes place, to the first modern Olympic Stadium, the Kallimarmaron – “The beautifully marbled stadium”. Visit the landmarks of the city like Hadrian’s Arch, the gate to the city of Athens, as well as the Neoclassical jewels of the city, like the Zappeion Megaron, the first modern Olympic Village. Learn more about the political life of Greece with visits to the Presidential Mansion, once the Crown Prince’s Palace and the building of the Hellenic Parliament, the former royal palace of Greece, where you can also watch the ceremonial change of the Presidential Guards’ shift. And of course, don’t miss out on all the fun riding inside the National – once royal – Garden of Athens, one of the biggest and most spectacular parks in Europe.
The tour includes visits to the Temple of Ζeus, Hadrian’s Arch, the Zappeion Mansion, the Panathinaikon Olympic Stadium, the Presidential Mansion, the Parliament’s House, the National Gardens and the Roman Baths. Notes: Segway is an original high-tech transportation vehicle with zero emissions. Riding a Segway is similar to riding a bike – it’s intuitive but not inherent. Easy to use and operate, the two wheeled Segway has a capacity that can last up to approximately 35 Km and of course…it is fun to ride. Thanks to the unique movement of the Segway vehicles combined with experienced staff, we can offer you a high quality tour, with comfort, safety and fun. The tours accommodate small groups (up to max. 20 persons), accompanied by one guide. The size of the group may be larger upon request, depending on availability and given a prior reservation. For personalised tour suggestions (different foreign language, private tour or a tailor-made route) please contact us. During our tour we do not enter any archaeological sites, we have stops from the outside and our professional guides can pass along all the important information on the spot.
