The hop-on hop-off bus is the perfect way to see Athens. We were visiting Athens on a cruise and only had one day to get around the city and see the sites - of which the bus did an excellent job! We had no problem finding stops, the buses came on time (every 30 minutes), and they have a stop right at the cruise pier. My wife and I loved it - highly recommended. They also have an audio guide you can listen to while riding if you're into that kind of thing.
Didn't have time to do entire trip around city, but what we saw was great! Overall, I think this would be the best value in town!
Tour, got us to where we needed to be. There was, to much to see, and did not see it all, but what we did was wonderful.
We used this tour as a great and easy means of transportation from the port to the Acropolis. We were able to walk around the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus area and have lunch in the Plaka without being rushed. Very short wait to return to the ship.
A perfect location for us as we got off a cruise ship and only had to take a short walk to the bus. It was a cheap way to get around this fabulous city.
Everything work just exactly as planned. We only planned to use it for transfers, but the audio guide was good also.
We were very happy wwith the tour. We saw what we wanted to without a lot of walking
A wonderful way to see the city in a short amount of time.
Views were great and were able to take pictures from the top of the bus.
Highly recommend this tour if you don't have a private one booked. Easy access to and from the ship
This was a great option as a cruiser. We caught the bus right outside of the port terminal. It was easy to navigate, and busses ran all the time.
It was so convenient to pick up the bus so close to the cruise ship. I originally booked the regular hop-on bus but when I learned there was a shore excursion bus I called and changed bookings. This process was hassle-free.
The bus was quite close to our cruise ship dock and within minutes of our arriving at the bus we were off on a delightful and complete tour of Athens. Great value.
After stop one , the Acropolis, not much energy for hopping on and off!
Given the short time we had this was a great option as it gave us the freedom to choose what we wanted to see. The trip along the coast to Athens was magical with all the marinas and the excitement of the narrow winding road. Our first stop was the Acropolis and Parthenon where we spent most of our time. We then moved onto the temple of Zeus and Hadrian's Arch and then comp,eyed the rest of the loop finishing back at the Acropolis giving us plenty of time to return to the ship.
Overall, the tour went well though there were some short cuts made from the original bus routes because of the on-going public demonstration/ protest in front of the parliamentary building.
Good way to see Athens in a hurry. We saw all the hot spots.....and at a very reasonable cost
