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.

This was a fantastic option. The bus came to the wharf meeting our ship, and stops at many interesting areas. This way you can adjust your day to suit your particular interests. Great value

As usual, a pocket-friendly and efficient way to see a city. The 24hour ticket is valid on the day of purchase and the one after, so this was perfect for my 36hour visit to Athens and allowed me to have an evening view of the city as the sun was starting to set.
I was also able to take advantage of one of the free walking tours from the Acropolis- the guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining and it was an excellent way to learn some of the hidden secrets/random facts about Athens and Greek history. If you've got the stamina, do both of them as they differ.
The staff at the bus stops were also very friendly and knowledgeable, willing to give suggestions on things to see/do while waiting for the next bus.
I'm already looking forward to my next City Sightseeing experience :

This was a great tour of Athens. If you only have one day, it's a must-see because it gives you all the highlights and you can hop on and off as you desire. At first, I was going to take the entire route, which is about 90 minutes, and then do it again getting off as I felt the need to but at the last second I got off at the Acropolis. Best decision I ever made!!! It was around 11:30 by the time I left and the line for tickets was four times as long as when I had arrived!! So, do it early!! There are amazing things to see at every spot and while I didn't get off at every stop I still saw plenty! The price you pay to enter the Acropolis also gives you entry to some other ruins elsewhere so keep your ticket! I also loved the site of the first Olympics - another stop. Just a great, easy way to see a lot! The guide also distributes earplugs and you plug into a console at each seat, choose your language, and can hear the narration as the bus makes its way around the city. Tip: 2 is English. Also: note the route you are on. They have different routes. This makes it easier to locate the bus you need to continue your tour.
