Excellent

Absolutely GREST choice for getting around Athens. We enjoyed the 24 hour ticket, and we received an extra day and 10% off with our expired ticket! (That was advertised within the brochure/map). Our hotel was centrally located so it was not far from the bus stop (A5)/(A8). We had so much fun just riding around Athens at times and getting to hop off and explore the sites!

Hi Athens is a big city with 3 possible hop on routes . The main route covering the main attractions of the city. We had done the Acropolis and area last time we were here and this time was limited so we only got off and saw the changing of the guards. We were on a cruise which has a hop on bus to the Acropolis where you change buses to the main city route. Beware this bus then stops at bus stop no.1 for 20 minutes, as a driver break? To appreciate the city and all the benefits of the bus you really need 2 to 3 days. Also watch out for demonstrations which can affect the routes. We were also surprised about the amount of graffiti.

Confusing transfer

There was a lot of confusion regarding the bus change. No one seemed clear about the best way to go to the Acropolis. We ended up waiting for 20 minutes when we could have walked to our destination in 10.

Perfect for a Day in Athens

Easy to find the bus just outside security. Friendly and helpful staff. Well coordinated so we eventually made it to all stops, even though the marathon had some streets blocked early in the day.

Not as Described

The buses do not run according to their posted schedule. They are late and unreliable. The bus to the beach is very, very full. Make sure you board first thing in the morning or you will not have a seat. The drivers make random stops that are not on the schedule. This is probably why they are late. We would not buy again.

Good experience.

We had a wonderful time viewing the sites of Athens. Some of the devices on the bus were not working. It would be good to mark those that aren't so that you don't find out after you have sat and started moving.

Slow start, but efficient afterwards

We got off the cruise ship and there were several different buses with salespersons on them, but not ready to use buses. We showed the red bus personnel our tickets and she said the next bus is enroute and should be here every 15 minutes. We waited over just under an hour! Otherwise, the rest of the buses were on time and it was an efficient way to view the sites.

There were several stops along the routes and especially just outside our hotel. We were Great Gil for the maps giving us all the stops & sites around the city. The drivers were very helpful when asked questions. All in all it was a Great Experience!
