Athens: Red Hop-On Hop-Off Bus with Piraeus and Beach Rivera
- Duration: 1 day
- Optional audio guide
Fantastically easy way to get from the port in Piraeus into Athens. A bus was waiting when we came off the ship and we arrived at the Acropolis in less than an hour. From there we wandered around the Roman Agora and through the Plaka. We came straight out of the Plaka and were at Hadrians arch where there was another bus stop. The sad part is they were closing city streets so we weren't able to see the rest of the city. So if doing all the sights, this is a super form of transport. But just to get into the city and back, there are cheaper options.
I had a great experience touring Athens with your bus. We switched buses at some point and I got to see more of Athens on your double decker bus. Our tour driver was very pleasant. He suggested we climbed the rock to take good pictures at the Acropolis then join the bus afterwards. I’m glad I did that because I saw Athens from a beautiful view. I had such a great time!
The booking process was very straight forward. The online token was exchanged for a ticket at our first bus stop. The Athens route is very good with hop off stops at all the key attractions. We switched to the riviera/beach route later in the afternoon which was a bonus. Great sunset trip to Vouliagmeni Lake which provided great views over the seafront.
Great activity! I should have done it the first day just to get the lay of the area. I also used my own earbuds which made the audio much clearer. The best value was the guided 2 hour walking tour which was included in the ticket. There are two offered each day. Excellent tour guide! Highly reco.mended to go on the walking tours also.
Great way to see the city and save your feet. Route and stopping points clearly marked and easy to find. If you have time, bring a bathing suit and make sure to spend a few hours at Vougliamenti Lake.
