Great bus trip for the money, i booked before I went. Got the blue bus around athens Great tour, then next days caught the green bus for the coast tour which was lovely to see the marina and beaches. You have to get it at the acropolis stop which is the start of the tour.

The bus arrived on time, we didn't wait long for it on each of stations and the view from the roof of the bus was more than satisfying. We had to ask for the headphones ourselves, the driver did not share when entering the bus. Overall it was very nice.

These buses are great! It’s a wonderful way to explore the city without having to take a taxi to each spot! The upstairs seating is open air but has a covered top that allows you to stay shaded while allowing the breeze to come through.

Great way to orientate your way around a brand new city. Central Athens line only takes 1.75 hrs. to complete the loop. Try to get a bus with a canopy over the top of the upper deck. We didn’t & got pretty hot in the 30 degree heat !

Pick up right by the ship, no endless checking for tickets, very enjoyable, highly recommended.
