What people are saying about Byzantine Museum

We really enjoyed this tour with Takis, he was a great host. But just to explain the concept of tour for other travellers-your guide does not visit the attractions with you, he drives you to them and explains the history in front of the place of interest, then you buy tickets and enter by yourself while he is waiting for you. Never the less, we really enjoyed our tour, which is quite convenient if it is more convenient for you to walk less due any reason.

All the agents at the tour stops are exceptionally helpful. We booked this bus 4 times just because it was easy to get around, until we learned how to use the Subway. Vasilis at the Acropolis was exceptionally helpful and gave us great insight into great local places to visit

It was an excellent tour at all!!!! The guy at the port was very informative!!! He helped us a lot!!! We went to monastiraki square that is the center of athens !!!! This hop on hop off is very comfortable!!!

Comodissimo!!! Abbiamo preso l’autobus vicino la nave norwegian epic!!!! Abbiamo scoperto tutta la città fino il pomeriggio!!!! Al ritorno siamo scesi proprio all’entrata!!! Tutto perfetto!!!

It was great! Traveling in November was the best. The HOHO blue bus and yellow bus were everywhere. We did the city route 1 day and then the coastline route the next day. Very accessible.
