Excellent buses and commentary in four languages, very convenient bus every half an hour. The commentary was very clear and outstanding. The day was hot and I chose wisely to sit downstairs and not on the open upper deck. All important spots are covered. I particularly spent more time at the Temple of Zeus, the changing of the guards at the Parliament and the National Gardnes, and also Plaka which is wonderful to walk around in. I did not visit the Acropolis as I had already seen it earlier on another trip.
this was an excellent idea and very well organised with different coloured bus stops to match the bus being used. much better organised than the Rome activity of the same name.
I was able to catch the bus just around the corner from my hotel - the views from the top gave me perfect panoramic pictures!
Fun bus ride around athens to see all the sites. The driver was friendly and the audio guide was helpful!
The buses run frequently and are near the common touristy places to stop. We basically used it like a taxi- just be sure to check the start/end times. The last bus was around 830 pm. Downtown Athens was fairly easily to walk though- so even if you were out later than the bus it doesn't seem to far to walk... Maybe a few miles- but lots of open shops, etc at night to keep you entertained.
So easy from the cruise ship. Make sure you walk outside the gate and look for the big red bus. We only had one day to spend and of coarse wanted to see it all. With this tour we were able to at out own pace. The audio was very clear and the multi languages made it perfect for everyone. The free walking tours that they offered outside the acropolis were excellent and informative.
It made touring Athens very easy. We were able to go to Monasteraki and the Ancient Agora area without any hassles. Will definitely recommend it to anyone going to Athens.
Well worth the money - gave us two days to get our bearings and find out about this wonderful city. Buses were frequent, clean and drivers friendly. When it rained a cover was put over the open upper deck - just beware that puddles that form can suddenly splash over the sides! The trip to Pireaus was good - we got off just after the main port where the enormous ships are - it was the stop at the marina where the private, expensive boats are, turn left and walk right right around the bay to the far corner (the direction in which the bus travels) where there is a bar called Freddos- it's right on the far corner. This has a great view over the marina, is very friendly and sells delicious wraps!
It was so easy to exchange the vouchers for the actual tickets. The hop on hop off bus was a great way to get around the city. My husband has trouble walking long distances so this was an ideal way to get around. Two days was perfect, as you didn't need to rush.
Highly recommend this tour. We were only in Athens a day so it enabled us to see all the major sites and get off when we wanted to. The bus was nice and air conditioned on a 45 degree day so we were very thankful for that. Great way to see Athens!
We got our money's worth from this one. It's really useful to be able to hop on these buses in the heat of the day and have a little breeze (upstairs) or AC (downstairs) to catch your breath.
