We took the Athens Line and it was fantastic. The distance from one historical ruins to another is not that far, actually some of them are across the street. Agents and Divers were hospitable and friendly.

Very good experience as good way to travel around different sites and hear exciting things about athens. Also the 2 free walking tours were brilliant. Would highly recommend to anyone going to athens to do.

En väldigt trevlig tur med mycket att se, önskar dock att busschaufförerna kunde lite bättre engelska så man hörde vad de sa.
