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
At firat we thought this is only for kids, but then we said - why not for adults as well!
The littel city train goes arround a lot of places in the city and it a different point of view because it also goes were...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
Having had a good experience with a little train tour of Luxembourg we thought that this would be a good way to see some highlights of Athens on our 1 available day (happened to be raining). The prior experience we had headphones with our language....More
You sit on a train and the woman who
Sits up front merely calls out names of

but it didn’t. This...More
It is a 40 minutes journey starting from Syntagma Square. The charges are 5 euro for adults and 3 for children. It passes through some important and some small busy lanes . The worst part was the commentary which we just could not hear. If...More
You get carted around some busy streets as well as some back alleys.
Really don’t see much of any value at all.
Our hostess was more concerned with eating and chatting with friends on her phone which caused a major tantrum and spat with the...More
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,
bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
