Chantel arranged for electric bike rentals which was very smart as there are hills in Athens and also much heat in the summer. She was very knowledgable of the city and took us on a wonderful tour, explaining the sites along the way. She also recommended a great restaurant that we totally enjoyed and returned to as well!! Thank you Chantel for the great tour and company!!
