Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 1,402 reviews

The place is delightful both from the point of view of nature and from the point of view of human talents! It is simply amazing that in 5 centuries BC it was possible to build such a thing. Everything is very well organized. The commentary on the way could have been more interesting. The views on the way are wonderful, we saw all the Athenian beaches. Overall, I liked it very much!

Not a lot of places we wanted to hop off, but the ability to see the whole city is good. We did find that the other company with yellow buses (Grayline) had better audio information. Definitely fun to go all the way to Glyfada and eat at Labros restaurant on the deck by the sea.

allows you to tour the city in front of sites that we would not have had time to do otherwise, lack of time!

Everything worked out great, the buses are right at the Kteuzfahrtterminal.

Fantastic way to see the city and coastline quickly
