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.
The schedule was good as we never waited long for a bus. The staff both on the bus and at the stations were friendly and helpful. I recommend the service.
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.
