Very well organised with lots of knowledgeable and efficient helpers at key bus stops. The Blue Route took us from the cruise terminal in Piraeus to the Acropolis, which was very convenient. We were able to spend a long time looking around this historic site. After the Acropolis visit, we were able to pick up the Red Route from the same stop, in order to see the rest of the city from the open top of the bus. On returning to the Acropolis stop we were transferred to what seemed to be a port-only bus, which took us speedily back to the cruise terminal at Piraeus.

City Sightseeing is an amazing tour. You get to see most of the city while choosing to explore more or keep sightseeing. The entire team is very helpful and tries to make your trip excellent. If a problem comes up the team smoothly correct it with little effort on your part.

The HOHO is the best way to see all the sites in Athens when time is at a premium. All the major sites are visited with buses leaving about every fifteen minutes. We use it as a taxi as well to get to and from other areas as well as the major sites.

Frustrating at first as we did not know that the Bus was a big red bus. We were looking for the Viator Tour bus and no one seemed to know that it was called a Hop on Hop Off bus. We called the Viator number and it all got straightened out. Viator needs to inform people about the BIG RED BUS.

We did Rome and Athens this way and loved it! Very easy to follow, find bus and follow map. Time to explore at your own pace with plenty of time to get back to ship, even with one hour train ride in Rome to the port. Istanbul tour with Omar was outstanding for half price of cruise ship. Would definitely use Viator again.

Well organised and friendly staff. Good informative commentary. Would use again, just a shame we only had 6 hrs in port and couldn't make full use of the service, would highly recommend. managed to see more of Athens than the official cruise our for 1/3 of price.
