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.

Great tour. I would always recommend a hop-on/hop-off bus in any city. Just make sure you know what time attractions are closing and the last bus it. We had a very short layover in Athens, and ended up JUST missing the Parthenon closing time...and also the last bus: our own, fault, of course.

I took the Athens only red line since I only had one day to visit. I enjoyed it a lot and the driver's were really helpful in advising how I use my time.

As always a great way to travel and see the city, no matter what country or city you go into, I always suggest to ride around first on the top if possible to get those beautiful pictures and then decide what you really want to see and make the best use of your time if it is a short stay


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

Relaxing way to see the city.

Just Perfect!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

Great experience! Very organised and perfect for a short visit when you want to see the most you can. The buses were driving on time. There was no waiting at all. We hoped on and off for two days. Dont miss busy quarter of Manastiraki and the nearby Ancient Agora. Acroplis Museum is an architectural and archaeological jewel, and should be seen after the Acropolis and Perthenon. Reserve about 2 to 3 hours for the National Archeological Museum and its splendid display of antic Greek archaeological heritage. The Sintagma and Omonia squares are worth a quick stroll, but do take some time for the historical Plaka area. And last, but not least, do visit the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens for a view of the Christian Orthodox faith splendour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

Very pleased with this hop on/off tour. It stopped at/near every site I wanted to see. The buses were on an excellent schedule. The pre-recorded on-board commentary was very good.
The drivers and staff at each stop were friendly and helpful and I was very happy that the drivers indicated when the next stop was coming up.
At the end of the day, there were also very good about indicating when the last bus would be coming around.

We had an amazing time touring Athens! My grandfather born and raised in Greece joined us and said this was, by far, the best way to tour and sightsee in Athens! He even called my aunts and told them when they visit, they need to book this tour!
