Well worth the money - gave us two days to get our bearings and find out about this wonderful city. Buses were frequent, clean and drivers friendly. When it rained a cover was put over the open upper deck - just beware that puddles that form can suddenly splash over the sides! The trip to Pireaus was good - we got off just after the main port where the enormous ships are - it was the stop at the marina where the private, expensive boats are, turn left and walk right right around the bay to the far corner (the direction in which the bus travels) where there is a bar called Freddos- it's right on the far corner. This has a great view over the marina, is very friendly and sells delicious wraps!
Highly recommend this tour. We were only in Athens a day so it enabled us to see all the major sites and get off when we wanted to. The bus was nice and air conditioned on a 45 degree day so we were very thankful for that. Great way to see Athens!
It was so easy to exchange the vouchers for the actual tickets. The hop on hop off bus was a great way to get around the city. My husband has trouble walking long distances so this was an ideal way to get around. Two days was perfect, as you didn't need to rush.
We got our money's worth from this one. It's really useful to be able to hop on these buses in the heat of the day and have a little breeze (upstairs) or AC (downstairs) to catch your breath.
Good value especially the forty eight hours use for the price of twenty four hours. Covered all the main attractions.
The tour managers were super friendly and professional. I got on at the Parthenon instead of where the voucher said, and it was not problem for them. i had to change my date to the 2nd day after my arrival and that was also not an issue, they were very helpful and accommodating. Thank you for a lovely experience!!!
Great way to see the highlights of Athens. Easy access to all sights and pick up places identified if happen to get off then on at a different stop
didnt know where to find bus. need to leave dock area a, turn left and buses are approx .25 mile on left behind chain link fence in parking lot.
make use of time...so much to see!
definately would do this again. dont have to deal with busy traffic
My teip to Athens was so much MORE than I expected!!! Thank you guys for the Hop on-Hop off tour it was wonderdul
Found this a very convenient means of getting from the port to athens and back. Works out cheaper through viator.
Best way to see the city of Athens. The stops were so close to the monuments and lots to see along each route. If taking a cruise i highly recommend getting the pass that connects and goes between Pireaus and Athens. Pireaus is where the boats docks and has a station right outside of the pier dock. You can then transfer to Athens (20 min ride) and get back easily. We got to see everything that we wanted in Athens and thoroughly enjoyed the ease of hopping on and off the tour.
the stops were all very convenient, and we felt very well taken care of by the staff. they even distributed rain ponchos when it started raining on us! it was a great way to explore Athens from the cruise ship--once we got to the Acropolis, we were able to explore on foot for a large portion without waiting on the bus--but then when we got tired, we could hop right on and go back to the ship!
Sadly, the rest of the tour was a disaster as everything was stolen at Piraeus. We then spent the next two days at police stations and the embassy. We will have to go back!
We enjoyed the hop on/off bus tour very much.
Very helpful! Commentaries were awsome. Tour was weel organized. Lots of bus.
Very good tour. Ideal to see all major attractions and we had the two day option so were able to visit Piraes. Had lunch on the harbour which was very pleasant.
The audio was great. Each stop had a person after we exited the bus to point us in the right direction and answer important questions like where we would finf restrooms.
