Our cruise itinerary changed due to bad weather so we arrived in Athens a day earlier than we had booked our bus tour. This did not pose a problem and we were able to due the hop-on hop-off with no problem at all. Highly recommended.
Very well organised with lots of knowledgeable and efficient helpers at key bus stops. The Blue Route took us from the cruise terminal in Piraeus to the Acropolis, which was very convenient. We were able to spend a long time looking around this historic site. After the Acropolis visit, we were able to pick up the Red Route from the same stop, in order to see the rest of the city from the open top of the bus. On returning to the Acropolis stop we were transferred to what seemed to be a port-only bus, which took us speedily back to the cruise terminal at Piraeus.
City Sightseeing is an amazing tour. You get to see most of the city while choosing to explore more or keep sightseeing. The entire team is very helpful and tries to make your trip excellent. If a problem comes up the team smoothly correct it with little effort on your part.
The HOHO is the best way to see all the sites in Athens when time is at a premium. All the major sites are visited with buses leaving about every fifteen minutes. We use it as a taxi as well to get to and from other areas as well as the major sites.
I had a great time. It was the best way to see Athens Ina day. Thank you Viator!
Excellent service. Though there was a demonstration, the driver maneuvered cleverly and we had a special trip back to the cruise ship
Absolutely as described on the tin! Very helpful staff at Piraeus and in Athens itself. They even laid on extra busses to ensure all cruise passangers returned to the port on time. Well done.
Frustrating at first as we did not know that the Bus was a big red bus. We were looking for the Viator Tour bus and no one seemed to know that it was called a Hop on Hop Off bus. We called the Viator number and it all got straightened out. Viator needs to inform people about the BIG RED BUS.
I love the hop on hop off tours. We got to see the layout of the whole city and we learned a lot. When we needed rest from walking we would just get on the bus!
Very good, are cruise ship was a day to late because of the problems in athens but we were able to change our ticket without any problems, thank ou viator we had a wonderful sight seeing trip petrus
It was a GREAT Trip to Athens. Thank you Viator for making OUR Trip to Athens so very ENJOYABLE and WONDERFUL. My Wife and I had a GREAT TIME in Athens.
The Hop-on Hop-off worked great for us. We got on at the port, stayed on for several stops, got off at the Acropolis, then back on, off a few stops later and walked around Athens and shopped, then got back on and took back to our port. I would definitely do it again
Excellent tour. Guide was very prepared and the small group size made this a far superior experience to ship-provided large bus trips
Well organised and friendly staff. Good informative commentary. Would use again, just a shame we only had 6 hrs in port and couldn't make full use of the service, would highly recommend. managed to see more of Athens than the official cruise our for 1/3 of price.
Clean, reliable, efficient transportation that included all of the major sites in Athens. Picked us up right at our cruise ship. Price was great.
We did Rome and Athens this way and loved it! Very easy to follow, find bus and follow map. Time to explore at your own pace with plenty of time to get back to ship, even with one hour train ride in Rome to the port. Istanbul tour with Omar was outstanding for half price of cruise ship. Would definitely use Viator again.
This service was waiting at the port gates when we arrived on a cruise ship into Pireaus. The young man who took our voucher and issued the ticket was extremely polite, spoke excellent English and explained the routes available to take. We took the blue route to the Acropolis and took the red route around the city before reconnecting with the blue route back to the port. The bus ran on time and as usual with these tours the commentary was excellent. A great way to quickly acquaint yourself with Athens and ideal if you intend revisiting the points of interest
We enjoyed our trip to Athens despite the weather, thank goodness you had a bus with a canopy covered top !! Your staff were most helpful and we saw as much as we could in the time we had. Will definitely use your service again.
An excellent service with personnel on hand at almost every stop. Most reassuring. Smooth boarding and seating. The audio guide was excellent. Our only query would be .. why does the bus stop for a 15 minute break at Syntagma Square when it would surely make more sense to have this break at the 'changeover' point of The Parthenon. That way, those needing to change buses to get back to the Port could do so as soon as possible. Would definitely use this service again and would highly recommend it.
We had a great time. Arrived early to see the Acropolis cost was 12E each. Then we got on again and did the rest of the red line and got off at the Acropolis Museum 5E each. The blue line was right outside of port so it was easy to get on. The return on the blue line was just as easy. It was everything we expected.
