Learn all about ancient Greek mythology and philosophy, thanks to the informative on-board audio commentary. Hop on and off as many times as you please within the chosen time period, getting a closer look at the Athenian history on show. This sightseeing tour provides access to up to 3 bus routes depending on the ticket chosen. And there's 2 included walking tours to take advantage of, giving you the chance to properly immerse yourself in this city's culture!

What to Expect
Book your preferred tour ticket and board the open-top City Sightseeing double-decker bus at any of the applicable stops. Then, don the provided earphones to learn about the sights you see via commentary. Choose to stay aboard for the full route, or hop out at any stops to explore by foot. Perhaps explore the ancient temples at the Acropolis, or at the New Acropolis Museum to admire its classical sculptures.

First stop on our cruise from Trieste to Dubai was Piraeus. Caught the Red Hop-on Hop-off Bus from the Port to Athens. Once there you can change routes very easily on the same ticket. Unlike some Hop-on Hop-off Busses we thought this one very good value for money.

It was very nice city tour , reasonable price , but confusing branching , the buses needs maintenance, but it was good overall.

We loved the Hop On Hop Off bus! The base price is for 2 days, and the first day it rained. Even so, my kids insisted on sitting on top, and we saw the city. Some of the busses are nicer than the others, and some have a covered top, it's just a matter of luck which one you get.

The bus tour was nice and the bus drivers were friendly. It was cool you get free beer at stop A1. One thing that did suck was there were giant window stickers covering the down stairs windows of the bus. That makes no sense especially on cold days because you can hardly see
