They don't have an office, I looked for the location they send on the confirmation paper, there was not the location i looked for over 2 hours for the location asking police office and other people no one seemed to know where they were, finally found the location the girl there said to call Viator and get a refund because some of the bus was not running due to a marathon, at least they could do was notify the customer the new location they were going to be at.
Great way to see the highlights of Athens

This was a great way to get a general tour of central Athens and get off at any points of interest. Schedule is easy to follow. The buses, signs and staff are very easy to identify and they do a great job of explaining how it works.

Terrible the bus got stuck, told everyone to get off and go to the right. After about 30 minutes of waiting I paid for a cab. Wait time for buses anywhere from 10 minutes to 35 minutes.

Great day seeing all the sights, the bus drivers were amazing so helpful and courteous as were the ticket staff

Other than not showing up at the last stop everything was fantastic. Highly recommend for the price.
Not specifically bad… not specifically good.

We took the Athens route. The bus was relatively clean, and the tour didn’t do anything wrong, but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this as a good method of sightseeing here. (We found Athens to be somewhat dull anyway, and it was very very hot, so I am trying to keep the review directly related to the tour itself.) if you ARE interested in seeing some of what Athens has to offer (fairly limited in our opinion) , you may consider pinpointing 2 or 3 things and using the taxis, of which there are MANY. (Possibly more than there are people… use the meter to ensure the proper price). The bus sits in quite a bit of traffic on very tight streets, which takes away from the experience. The audio quality was mediocre (I’m rounding up here…) , maybe if you bring your own headphones it would be better? There was nothing bad about the tour, but there wasn’t really anything great about it either. We recently took a similar tour in Paris, where I’d say this is a GREAT option. Hope this helps someone out there.

Hot hot hot hot hot. The bus had ZERO air conditioning, many of the headphones sets didn’t work, and there was no clear schedule as to when a bus would or wouldn’t arrive. Bring a portable fan with mister on this one. Also, you can walk the whole thing without the bus tour. It seriously drove in small circles all day.

It was a great tour and the customer service from the tour guides on each station was outstanding. The buses are very clean

Good thing we bought this 3 day your with the beach Riviera. The bus are always on time and the employees are always helpful. Kudos to all of them that are still working and smiling under this hot summer time.
