  • we always do this to get a good idea where things are in city!

  • Good trip enjoyed it. If you're traveling by cruise liner you'll find the hop on hop off outside the port 5min walk behind the parked coaches. Than you will have a half hour travel to the centre don't worry you will arrive exactly underneath acropolis. Then you can decide to go around Athens.

  • I've enjoyed the Hop on Hop off in several cities and love to hear all about what I'm seeing! The Athens Hop on Hop off was no exception. We did the full round and then decided where we'd get off next. One issue I had was that the rich history of Athens was a little short on tidbits on the audio. All the other cities I've traveled to, had much more information and history to offer. A lot of quiet time in Athens. I'm pretty sure there's so much more to add to the Athens audio. That being said, I always seek out Hop on Hop off wherever I travel. A great way to get your bearings and learn more about the city.

  • Poor sound system in buses.

  • Although I love doing hop on/off tours, this one I found confusing. They have different lines you can take. My jack didn't work so I couldn't hear the guide of the city. And in Athens the landmarks are a distance apart. It wasn't bad, just not what we are used to. It is still an excellent way to see the city, and very cost effective.

  • We picked up the bus from the Cruise port which was fine. This took us to the Acropolis where we had to get off to change to another bus to continue the tour around Athens, but the queues were long and the buses very busy. 2 of our party had to wait 45 minutes for a bus to continue their tour of the city whilst the rest of our party looked around the Acropolis. We then picked up the bus from another stop, but had to sit downstairs which wasn't great! When we got back to stop A5 to pick up the bus to go back to the cruise port, luckily enough they had put a queuing system in place to deal with the volumes, so we didn't have to wait too long to board!

  • Great way to see the sights and get your bearings.

  • Find another bus tour! This was terrible. AC was useless, we had to switch busses randomly and sat in the new one for 15-20 minutes waiting, the lines each bus travels is unclear, and the time schedule is not followed. We ended up just walking around ourselves. Thumbs down in a major way. :(

  • When we went to board the bus the operators wanted to charge us extra even though we had paid for our ticket here on viator.
    We said no we had already paid. Unfortunately the day we went the buses were unable to do the full bus journey as the Greeks decided to hold protests that day!

  • Great way to get around Athens and explore different areas. Efficient and on time.
