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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Great and less expensive than the ship's costs way to see Athens' important spots on a one day shore excursion. Plenty of personal opportunities to do and see whatever you want at any time. Well worth it.

Inexpensive and flexible way to see Athens. We got the bus at the port dock and took it straight to the Acropolis to beat the crowds. Other stops around town saved us from walking a lot in the heat. There are several other HOHO buses with just about the same stops that you can purchase the day you arrive by cruise or land. You might save a little money, but we don't regret prepurchasing online.

Excellent way to see the city when your time is limited! Athens was a stop on our cruise and we didn't have too much time, so got on the bus, hopped off at the Acropolis, then hopped back on and saw the rest of the sights. Good value.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

As with every other city, the Hop-On-Hop off Tour bus is a great way to see the area. It gives you the freedom of exploring on your own, with the security of somebody that knows where they are going and the added bonus of learning about the sites in the language of your choice. I have done this bus in many cities.... all are great!
