Great way to explore Athens if you're there for a few days.

My wife and I did this tour as an excursion on our own when our cruise ship docked in Piraeus. We found it to be the perfect way to see Athens. We enjoyed the audio tour as we drove around to each of the many sights in Athens. My wife and I were able to many sights and we made it back to our cruise ship on time.

This was good value and on informative way to see some of the area. Only drawback beyond the tours control was the number of people at the site.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

I always enjoy the hop on hop tours as it allows you to take your time seeing what you yourself want to see. Certainly value for money.

We took the Hop-On Hop-Off primarily as a way to reach the historic area from our cruise ship. It provided great service and an excellent way to see the city.

Pick up at the wharf was great easy to find. Given warning early into the trip traffic was horrendous and to be careful that you time correctly the tour you do. It worked out really good for us getting off at the Acropolis then getting the redline city tour before returning to the wharf. The cross over worked out brilliantly. The package worked for us

Awesome and convenient. We got on the Hop On, Hop Off bus right at the cruise port with our luggage and took it to the stop near our apartment. We saved on a taxi! We dropped off our luggage and off we went for the day to explore Athens. The bus line including Pireaus and Athens covered everything we wanted to see and more. Be sure to stop at the Flea Market for great deals and great food!

We would use this method of touring when we travel again. The staff was excellent, greeting us right of the ship and answering all questions throughout the day as we navigated Athens. The flexibility to get on and off and to stay as long as we liked at each sight was just what we wanted. Thank you for your excellent service.
