It was an absolute waste of money! We took a three day ticket. The city tour takes you around areas that you easily access walking (we did and we are traveling with small children). We wanted to hear about all the exciting monuments, places and history of ATHENS and the

There don’t seem to be enough buses. We waited for over an hour for a bus to Pireas while the red and yellow buses came and went, so we weren’t game to get off at Pireas for fear that we would never be picked up! We then had to wait over half an hour for an Athens line bus,

Response from ThanosGeorg, Manager at Hop on Hop Off Classic tour of Athens
Responded 13 Jan 2020
Dear Heather, thank you for using our services. Firstly we would like to inform you that the frequency during winter time for all hop on hop off companies is the same: Every 20 min for the center line, every 90 min for the Piraeus line and 2 departures for the beach. Moreover our time schedule is on our maps, signs and online. A map with all the details was given to you and it is also available in our buses the whole time. Additionally our representatives inform all of our clients for the exact schedule and departures. That means you were informed properly for the product you bought. Most of our passengers get on and get off easily in Piraeus following the schedule with the exact departures. In conclusion our representatives did not allow to use your ticket for than 48 hours because your ticket was valid for exact 48 hours. If you needed an extension ticket you could ask them. Best regards,

A great way to see the city when you only have a few days there. It took us to many of the attractions and gave a real sense of how the city was laid out and there attractions were. To be able to get on/off as needed was a real bonus. We did a complete loop just to marvel at the

This is a very efficient way to see a number of the highlights of downtown Athens. We had a good time getting off the bus at Monastiraki and walking around the meat and fish markets, and at the historic sights. Price is reasonable too. The only improvement I can suggest is
