Set your own itinerary and explore the spectacular city of Athens at your own pace with this hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing tour.

Armed with your 24-hour ticket, simply hop aboard the open-top, double-decker City Sightseeing bus, and get acquainted with the top attractions of the sight-packed Greek capital as you drive around its pretty streets, age-old monuments and sun-burnished squares.

Sit back and admire the 360-degree views of the treasures during the full 90-minute loop, all as you listen to the revealing onboard audio commentary. And whenever you’re ready, hop off at any of the 14 stops around the city to sightsee at leisure.

Be sure to hop off at the Acropolis to marvel at its splendid ancient temples and ruins, including the magnificent Parthenon. Explore the beautiful National Gardens near Syntagma Square, and perhaps leave your bus at the stunning New Acropolis Museum to view its displays of ancient Greek statues, friezes and other artworks excavated from the Acropolis. These are just a few of the must-sees and activities you can enjoy on your hop-on hop-off tour.

Your City Sightseeing pass is valid for 24 hours, plus an additional day free, from the time you first use it. Buses depart from the stops every 30 minutes from 9am till 6pm.

We had a very good experience with the tour. We always use Viator for our airport transfers and our site tours. They are organized, reliable, and safe. Their always provide all the services they advertise. We do not use any other tour company, simply because we have always had good luck with Viator.

The bus was an easy and reliable way to get around Athens and major sites. We also took the two walking tours included in fare and they were both amazing!! Our tour guides, Dimitri and Euphrosyne, were incredible. They both made our days in Athens interesting and memorable. Well worth it!!!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This is the most convenient way of seeing Athens especially if you only have limited time. You don't have to wait long for the next bus to arrive as well.
