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.

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Excellent service, just left out of the port gates easy to switch tours at the Acropolis
