To be honest we were very surprised to find the sightseeing bus was running as their leaflet said the tours finished at the end of October. We just used the bus to get to the castle which was very interesting but 10 euros each is a lot when you could catch a local bus for much less. We walked to the other sites we wanted to visit so sadly not impressed.

We have decided to see Thessaloniki around and sightseeing - hop on & hop off was at that time good idea. Well , first the bus take us around 5 location , coz another 2 are closed. There is it much to discover or see with these buses , unless you interested it traffic ! Save your 10 euros and go to Meteoras or Edessa !!!!

Having read mixed reviews of the hop on hop off bus tour to Thessalonika, we were not expecting too much. Price is reasonable for an orientation to the city. On our day of tour, it turned out that the route taken would not be as mapped out. Some city roads were blocked off for a protects rally so this was understandable and lead to long delays in traffic jams. However, it would have been more honest for us to have been informed of this before we bought tickets. The initial route out by the Palace was also dropped, for no known reason. Stops were poorly announced. Information audio in English was sparse and hard to understand due to heavy accept of the speaker. If the company list ended to feedback, this business could be improved upon with little effort.

We caught the bus near our accommodation at the Agios Demetrios church. We had purchased tickets online before we got there. The driver let us on and said we should get off at the White Tower to get our tickets. We saw lots of sights. The commentary is OK but sometimes out of sync with the sights. We got our tickets at the White Tower and got back on the bus to complete the tour. The bus went right up to the walls of the old city at the very highest point of Thessaloniki and drove through the archway into the old city. The bus driver was so skilled. The roads were incredibly busy. The tour is a good way to see the main sights and then you need to get off to explore properly. Buses were frequent but there was no real timetable and the stops are not clearly marked. You just have to look out for the bus and notice where it stops. The buses run until 8 pm.
