Our cruiseline docked near gate 2. The cruiseline staff were very unhelpful when we asked about where to go to gate 1 where we were supposed to pick up the viator bus. Turns out that gate 1 from gate 2 was only a 5 minute walk. It was clear the cruise wanted to push their paid excursions, but pay no attention! One cruise leader even said gate 1 was a 30 minute walk and started selling their excursion to us.
We loved taking the hop on hop off bus which we now call hoho for short. We used both routes (blue and red), which allowed us to see all of athens. They were timely, clean, friendly and just great! I highly recommend them.
The bus was easily accessible with a less than 10 minute walk from the cruiseline dock. We took both blue and red routes to see all of istanbul. The buses stop right at the sophia, mosque and basilica area and its so convenient! The buses were clean, timely and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Starting our trip, the bus headed towards the Taksim Square, and we got caught into the recent demonstrations and caught some tear gas that the riot police were shooting off. The bus quickly tried to divert us from the area and we took another route. All turned out great. We'd ride the bus again.
