On part of the journey neither my nor my husband's ear pieces worked. The sound was all static. Tried moving around on the bus- didn't help. Too bad would have really liked to hear the narration. At one stop we had to sit on the...More
We didn’t know what we wanted to see in Athens besides the Acropolis and the changing of the guards at the Parliament building, so we decided to book the Hop-On Hop-Off.
Good decision, with the audio guide and sun shinning down on us on the...More
The driver would not sell my mother a senior ticket despite it being advertised and availble on the website - and on his mobile sales app. The driver called a superior and claimed the senior ticket was for persons above 80 years...!!
We had been to Athens before so decided to take a City Sightseeing tour bus this time when on a P&O cruise
Ideal way of seeing all the major sites and of course you can hop on and off all day for just €22 per...More
Bought a 48 hour ticket and spent the first afternoon travelling on the city route taking note of where "things" were to help us with our own sight seeing plans. Excellent commentary giving lots of useful background information on all places of interest. The circuit...More

We decided to go for a round with the red hop on hop off bus to the attractions in Athens and we followed the free walking tour offered, starting from Acropolis stop, at 11.00 with Demetrios, a historian and archaeologist. It was a big gift...More
Athens is a great place to visit as a jumping off point to much better things to see in Greece. While in Athens you should definitely see the Parthenon and you can do this on this bus tour. However, after that...not so much. Athens is...More
Took the tour on the "City Sightseeing Athens" line. Had a fantastic driver ( Moutafis Giorgos). He made it look easy. Not sure how he moved that bus around the city as gracefully as he did.
Never been disappointed by this tour company. Reaso able...More
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Didn't drive in Athens... however seeing that you're coming from the Northeast, obviously I would check the Hop-on-Bus route and try to park somewhere near a stop on the north loop and avoid driving those narrow streets in central Athens. I had a map of Hop-On-Hop-Off bus route, but can't locate it, sorry.

Hi Kelly, the tour lasts about 1 and 1/2 hours, and it starts at A7 bus station and it takes you around the Acropole - the park nearby A7 bus stop, Church of Agios Demetrios Loumpardiaris and the Pnyx. We learned a lot of things about Acropole, the Parthenon and the Athenies' lives, more then in our guided Acropole tour.
