What people are saying about Argolis

For a short trip to Athens from Friday to Monday, the hop-on/hop-off bus tour with all three routes (Athens+Piraeus+Riviera Beach) was just right for us. The value for money, we had a 3-day ticket for 80€ for two people is absolutely ok! You can hop on and off these buses as many times as you like. With an audio guide (headphones are provided on the bus) you can learn a lot about the city, drive really many kilometers through the most diverse corners of Athens and get a good overall view of this city, even if you look at the city that it is unfortunately falling apart and there is no more money for many restorations. And if you're open to Greek music, you'll always hear it through headphones when nothing is being said ;-). Greetings from the holiday feeling! CONCLUSION: We would book the tour with THE RED BUS again. These buses were very clean and we only had friendly drivers!

As expected. The audio on the bus as a tour guide was nice. If I had more time in Athens I would have preferred to walk to the main attractions but if you are short on time like I was it’s a good option instead of getting taxis or using the bus.

O passeio transformou muito bem. Não fizemos nenhuma parada para ganharmos lmais tempo. O percurso feito foi o suficiente para termos uma visão panorâmica de toda a cidade. Nós nos divertimos muito. Foi muito legal!

La possibilité de pouvoir monter et descendre du bus selon notre envie et à notre rythme

It was great on time and stops were located in the right spots
