Hard to find bus stops

Sorry to say the ticket pick-up location and bus stops were extremely hard to locate. Because of this, we used the bus only once and definitely did not receive a good value.

Easy, dependable. Good narrative. Bus was not actually on Syntegma Square. Had to be directed one block away.

Don’t do it
Ola_J

Purchased my tickets in the United States and I had five senior citizens with me and purchased senior citizen tickets. When we arrived at the bus not only was it 30 minutes late but the lady in charge of tickets argued with me for two full hours that senior citizen is over the age of 80 years old. She embarrassed me in front of my guests and even after issue was resolved she continued to carry-on. Buses did not run on schedule would not recommend this company there’s two other bus lines out there go with them.

Waiting in the 32C heat for over an hour with no shade. Only to find out from the bus company the next one maybe an hour away. So not great, no thanks to hop on hop off.

They don't have an office, I looked for the location they send on the confirmation paper, there was not the location i looked for over 2 hours for the location asking police office and other people no one seemed to know where they were, finally found the location the girl there said to call Viator and get a refund because some of the bus was not running due to a marathon, at least they could do was notify the customer the new location they were going to be at.

Great way to see the highlights of Athens

This was a great way to get a general tour of central Athens and get off at any points of interest. Schedule is easy to follow. The buses, signs and staff are very easy to identify and they do a great job of explaining how it works.

Terrible the bus got stuck, told everyone to get off and go to the right. After about 30 minutes of waiting I paid for a cab. Wait time for buses anywhere from 10 minutes to 35 minutes.

Not specifically bad… not specifically good.
Nosson_L

We took the Athens route. The bus was relatively clean, and the tour didn’t do anything wrong, but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this as a good method of sightseeing here. (We found Athens to be somewhat dull anyway, and it was very very hot, so I am trying to keep the review directly related to the tour itself.) if you ARE interested in seeing some of what Athens has to offer (fairly limited in our opinion) , you may consider pinpointing 2 or 3 things and using the taxis, of which there are MANY. (Possibly more than there are people… use the meter to ensure the proper price). The bus sits in quite a bit of traffic on very tight streets, which takes away from the experience. The audio quality was mediocre (I’m rounding up here…) , maybe if you bring your own headphones it would be better? There was nothing bad about the tour, but there wasn’t really anything great about it either. We recently took a similar tour in Paris, where I’d say this is a GREAT option. Hope this helps someone out there.
