For a short trip to Athens from Friday to Monday, the hop-on/hop-off bus tour with all three routes (Athens+Piraeus+Riviera Beach) was just right for us. The value for money, we had a 3-day ticket for 80€ for two people is absolutely ok! You can hop on and off these buses as many times as you like. With an audio guide (headphones are provided on the bus) you can learn a lot about the city, drive really many kilometers through the most diverse corners of Athens and get a good overall view of this city, even if you look at the city that it is unfortunately falling apart and there is no more money for many restorations. And if you're open to Greek music, you'll always hear it through headphones when nothing is being said ;-). Greetings from the holiday feeling! CONCLUSION: We would book the tour with THE RED BUS again. These buses were very clean and we only had friendly drivers!

We really enjoyed the city tour. First of all, we rode the entire tour and then got off at a point that was interesting for us. Great that you can get on and off anywhere on your route. The audio information has also been good. And we were still able to use our tickets the next day. When sitting on top, headgear that fits snugly or is held in place makes a lot of sense.

It is very important that they announce the pick-up times at the port since on the web it indicates 12:30 pm but in reality they pick up passengers from 8:30 am. There are 3 routes to take for the same price and there is always a place and they are on time. Highly recommended if you arrive by cruise
