Love using this around Athens. We also used it to go to the Beaches and down to the Piraeus Port Area to get our tickets for ferry.
This was a great way of seeing around and I have not used them before but would definitely use them in future.

ATHENS IS HUGE! this was the only way to see Athens in the short amount of time we had. We came off the cruise ship, took a left out of the station and into the bus line and at 8:30 in the morning we were off and running! We had our tickets, it was a smooth process. We were able to view most of the things we wanted to see in Athens due to this bus tour. I love City Sightseeing and I have used them in most of my travels. The buses were easy to locate, stops were great along the way.
Although, if I get to come back one day, I will allow for more time and exploration. 4 Million people live in this old, historic city and getting around looks like a nightmare. Glad I didn't have to drive.

The driver should give or at least ask if you need ear buds. The driver should instruct what to do with them. We walked up to the upper deck only to discover there were no seats. At times you could barely hear what was being said through the prerecorded tour moderator.

Hop on Hop off buses are just fantastic! They give the visitor a wonderful lay of the land. I use them quite often when I go to a new city. We did the Athens route and it gave us a great perspective of the historical places within Athens.

I am absolutely IN LOVE with City Sightseeing Tours! I used them in Athens, Cape Town and Johannesburg, and they did not disappoint! This is absolutely the easiest and cheapest way to see a large expanse of a city in a short period! While you are always able to take the bus which usually runs in 90 minute loops, depending upon the route from any stop, and pay when you get on, it was much easier to have my electronic voucher on hand, which was scanned and a ticket generated which you do have to keep with you whenever you hop on and hop off. We only had a day on a layover from Paris to Cairo to see the city, and the CSB made it so easy to do! We got to see epic sites and spend as much time as we wanted there. Highly recommend this tour and obtaining an advance ticket - which will save you time having to queue in line!

Ride got stopped in a traffic jam due to protests. Didn't get any instruction from driver about what is happenening . Only when we asked, he just said Howe may be stuck for and hour and a half. We got off and walked for 15 min to get to our spot but wasted 30 min waiting in confusion.
