Exploring Athens can mean lots of walking and climbing, a stressful endeavor in the Greek sun or if you’re short on time. A hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing bus tour lets you cover more ground in less time, without using any extra energy. View the must-sees, learn their history from the onboard commentary, and hop on and off at the stops that interest you. Plus, explore beyond central Athens on Piraeus or Riviera routes.
What to Expect
Book your preferred tour ticket and board the open-top City Sightseeing double-decker bus at any of the applicable stops. Then, don the provided earphones to learn about the sights you see via commentary.

Choose to stay aboard for the full route, or hop out at any stops to explore by foot. Perhaps explore the ancient temples at the Acropolis, or at the New Acropolis Museum to admire its classical sculptures.

Maybe disembark at Syntagma Square to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and stroll through the National Gardens, or widen your sightseeing to the Athens Riviera (depending on selected ticket)—the choice is yours.

Your ticket is valid for 24 or 72 hours from first use, and includes a discount booklet with money-saving offers at selected attractions. Buses run every 15 or 30 minutes depending on the season. See the Itinerary for stops.

good way to get city overview

Sitting on the top ingood weather is a must to get the full benefit. Seats are tight for tall/big people, but the narration is good (they give you ear buds).

Not to use on a tight schedule

We have used this service to see the better sights in many cities. Athens is very different. The traffic can be horrible and you cannot count on them to keep to a schedule.

Gray line

This is a cheap and excellent way to see a lot in a short time period. Hopping on and off gives you the ability to do what you want when you want. Be careful though as the bus stops along the beach and water areas...More

Touristy yes but a GREAT overview for your trip

We have used these tours in several cities and always recommend them. We generally work to avoid tours and groups, however this is the BEST way to see a city and plan your trip for exploring. This recent Athens experience was very positive. Convenient schedule,...More

They picked up us at our hotel which was prearranged and took us to the main office. Others met at the main office in downtown Athens.

Hi! I honestly did not try to use my credit card in the attraction as I had cash on me. I’m not sure they accept travel checks as well! You need to double check!
