At only 5 euros we can hardly find anything to complain about. The train is clean and the seats are comfortable. I recommend asking the guide to stop and let you off at the Plaka neighborhood . Its a pleasant walk downhill back to Ermou...More

Absolutely the worst idea we had while we were in Athens. This excursion no longer takes you up to the acropolis and you simple move around the traffic of central Athens with barely any tour guide announcements. I think in summer it has open windows...More

It could be better if the staff and particularly the lady who happened to be tour guide and was also responsible for selling tickets had a better customer services. When your electronic payment machine does not work-or you do not want it to work- and...More

You sit on a train and the woman who Sits up front merely calls out names of buildings when you pass. Most the time her microphone didn’t work so you could even hear her. It’s suppose to stop at each spot but it didn’t. This...More

The seats are uncomfortable, and they give little to no information on each of the sites that you pass. We regretted spending the money on it

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
