Excellent way to see a lot without participating in a ship tour. Pick up from the dock made it easy with a transfer into Athens. Would recommend for anyone who wants the freedom to choose what sights they wish to see. Commentary on the bus was good..

They picked us up at 10am, which should have been earlier. Didn't get to see much before we had to head back to the ship
