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.

If you are looking to get into all these sites. This ticket is the way to go. It saved time sloping the lines. And was perfect for our time in Athens.

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
