Great way to see the city especially in the heat
Eva_S

We had a wonderful experience. Red line runs every 15 May bytes and took us to all the important sight in Athens. We took the beach line and found amazing beaches and a lake/spa. We do this every where we travel.

An awful experience, after they take your money of course. Even leaving a review is difficult. There is a minimum number of letters you must use to say awful

Very Good bus tour to see the sights!

Enjoyed seeing the sights! I would recommend doing this, but do your homework first, so you know where you want to go. It was a little difficult to understand the video.

Keep away from Riviera Beaches tour.
Doug_L
, Jun 2022
There are 3 tour routes. Don’t waste your time on the Riviera Beaches tour. Two hours of wasted valuable time. Not fun sitting on the open top deck at 70 km/h on a freeway. Also, it feels like a “made up” tour - no real information, e.g., “this shopping center/beach is a favorite of the people who live in the area”. Worst Big Bus tour we’ve been on. And, it didn’t leave from the meeting point - had to walk half kilometer to the start point.

So so experience

If you’re riding bus and expecting to see anything don’t! You look literally have to get off at every stop. Buses are covered with advertisements so you can snap a picture out of window. Tour guide (pre recorded audio) does not give you a warning of what’s coming up. Just says so on your left you have whatever. I think it should be so coming up to give you an opportunity to attempt to take a picture of you are lucky enough to get a top set upfront of bus. Only recommend because it’s a cheap way to get around town. You have to pay to get into most attractions

Bus stop locations.

No clear understanding of where to Pick up or activate voucher. Walked white a while looking for a bus stop location. Would be easier if there were an app to download to follow bus routes. Very frustrating. Also inside bus stop as so hit! No air conditioning.

Riding the three routes was a great way to get a feel for the city. The free beer was a nice touch. If you cannot find the rep to redeem your ticket for voucher the bus driver will do it for you.

At least tell me where to get my ticket!
Mark_C
, Jun 2022
The most memorable part was trying to find where we were supposed to get on the bus. It wasn't where we were told it would be, and I couldn't find it, so I ended up jumping in front of a bus and banging on the door until the driver told me where the temporary ticket-issuing site was.

Safe & Reliable

The safest and most efficient way to see the city! I would not recommend taking the last bus of the day because of the amended route. We missed the last stop for our hotel and had to walk back a few blocks...not something you want to do in Athens!

Athens, stress free for cruise passengers
Martin_D
, May 2022
Booked on Viator, joined the red bus at entrance to cruise terminal at Piraeus for the Piraeus to Athens line. Arrived at Acropolis and changed over to Athens line for full tour of Athens. Finished back at Acropolis, then did the site and museums. Excellent way to familiarise yourself with the city. Easy to use, buses come regularly so it is a great HOHO system. Excellent value. Back to Piraeus.

Stop A4 was chaotic, bus...
Tony_B
, May 2022
Stop A4 was chaotic, bus were very late. Then when the buses souse show up, people would run and skip in front of people that had been waiting there. Furthermore, people were running through the back door, as the riders were exiting.

Was able to do everything in Athens and the beach but didn’t make it to riviera it’s okay it was a lake I wanted to see but had to pay for it but highly recommended this tour Amazing runs every 20 mins the one to Piraeus runs every hour but super nice to see the city

The way to go
David_R
, May 2022
I usea wheelchair ♿ and the drivers were very accommodating. We had a three day pass and it was well worth it. Busses run about every 20 minutes on the red line. Great way to decide where to get off. Ride 1 time the loop then mark where to come back to.

Works well but be aware of unclear instructions if you buy etickets.
Kathryn_A
, May 2022
Even though traffic in Athens is intense, this is still a great way to get perspective of the city we’ve been here many times. If you buy tickets on line, the instruction to use scan & get tickets is not clear. The original pickup point is NOT on Syntagma Square, but a block + away. It’s at stop 1 on the red line & the hop on person there will print you a paper ticket.

Wow, we certainly got our moneys worth. The bus stoped outside our hotel and went everywhere a tourist would want to go. Fantastic value!
