I first started Hop-On Hop-Off tours while in Washington DC with my daughter many years ago. I now make it a habit to make this a first step in exploring any new city.
This tour will not disappoint. It provides a great orientation to a new destination.

Friendly welcome. Clear commentary on bus. Convenient stops. Regular frequent departures. Guide, Dimitris, on walking tours was excellent.

We took this bus on our 2nd day which is advisable - as it gives you a commentary of all the places in the city through headphones and where they are if you want to go back and visit. If you want to 'hop off' at any-time to take a closer look, you can do this as many times as you like the buses are regular about every half hour up until about 9 at night to pick you back up and drop off where you started.

Pretty simple process! I like the 24 hour pass as it allows for you to space out your day and sites. They even gave me an extra day for the price of one echo was pretty cool!
