The bus many colours where right at the port. Once we were on the right colour and explained the map and system, it was great. Again if you like crowds, this is a great place to be bumper to bumper with people. We were there in September 30 plus Celsius. I understand it is much hotter in July and August. This was a great way to get around and do the things you wish. Well organized and ran smoothly.
The Hop On Hop Off bus worked great for us. The pickup was right outside the port. It was so easy to use and stopped at all the sites we wanted to see.
The bus was a great way to see Athens and we did Barcelona also. Lots better than the expensive tours from the cruise ship.We also seen more of the cities this way
Excellent, very good value too.
Another fabulous excursion...
Had adequate busses was an enjoyable day.
Great way to see a lot in a short time. Excellent. Don't know how the bus drivers get into some streets - great skill. Only down side, has to wait a long time for a bus from the Acropolis.

Had a lovely day in Athens. The HOHO bus took us straight to the Acropolis from where we started our sightseeing. The first bus was earlier than the schedule had shown, which was just as well as we had to line up for Acropolis tickets and the line was not too bad when we got there. Buses came frequently.
Used these Hop-on Hop-off buses in other cities and they are great. You can listen to a commentary on the tour but you can also hop-off at different stops and then hop-on another bus later on. Best way to see thens and good value.
As I said before, good reprint action, tour guide were waiting for us, easy to find them.
Really good idea. Easy to use and great commentary. Only problem we had was we didnt have enough time to see all we wanted during the day we were there!
Our tour guide Ruli was very knowledgeable. She asked us a few questions to determine what we were interested in seeing and then customized what we saw. The tour included a nice balance of ancient cultures, Christian history St. Paul and engineering Corinth canal. Our kids agreed with us that this was one of the best tours of our trip.
We also appreciated that Ruli suggested other sites to visit during our stay along with a few restaurants near our hotel.
We were on a cruise ship, and that was a great way to see the city in a short amount of time. We got to choose where we wanted to make the most of our day!
Bus was easy to find right off the port area. Audio guide was nice to have. Great way to get into and see the city. If you don't want to pay a lot for a guided tour, this is the way to go!
My parents and I took this tour from Piraeus cruise port into Athens. The bus was easy to find...walk out of the terminal and keep going left, through a bus parking lot. You'll see the Hop On/Hop Off buses to the left, through a gated area. Staff were friendly and buses ran fairly quick. It was easy to transfer at the Acropolis to the other lines. This bus seemed to offer the most stops.
It was perfect for us. Nice cool ride around Piraeus and Athens with nice operators at each stop. We were happy to be on our own seeing the sights. Good deal, nice audio tour, friendly people. A beautiful day in Athens!
recommend using the hop on hop off bus, especially if you have a full day or more in Athens. I was on a cruise, so I didn't have a full day, as you have to take into consideration making sure you get back to the boat in a timely fashion. Once you go to Acropolis, you can basically walk to most of the other main attractions, so you don't really need to hop on and off. but if it's a full day or more that you have, then it's worth it.
Great tour, everything was more than ok!
Excellent service, just left out of the port gates easy to switch tours at the Acropolis
It was always on time, and a good way to know the city in few hours as a shore excursion must be.
Best way to get into Athens from the port and see so much more than in a taxi. The young woman who looked after us at the starting point was terrific and so very helpful. This was the best twenty bucks or so we spent on this trip!
Was east to get to off the cruise ship. Easy access to the top sights in Athens at a fraction of the cost of cruise line tours
great experience. loved to be able to get off where we wanted to. buses where available and on time. headphones were great to give information about historical sites and to orientate us as to where we were. good way to get an impression when you are in a place for a short time 7 hours.
Bus was sitting right outside the port so it was easy to get to. 2 lines to explore - enjoyed the Acropolis and Parthenon which the bus stopped at and love being able to tour around the city and see the sights. Having wifi on the bus was a huge bonus and one we took advantage of!
Excellent way to get around and see Athens. Incredibly easy from the port terminal and plenty of buses to catch throughout the day. Love the assistants at each bus stop to help you and advise when next bus is due. Just allow enough time to get back to the port as it does take time in the traffic!
