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
We took the "happy" train with our family when visiting Athens. For the duration of the ride we were subjected to choking exhaust fumes (we even moved to the last carried but it didn't get any better). It smells something between old diesel and motorcycle......More

We took this tour thinking we would get a feel for the city and, at very least, see the Acropolis. The best that can be said for it is that it’s cheap (5 euros per adult, 3 euros per child). We just missed one, so...More
The Happy Train is a fun way to get a feel for the city without boring your small kids. It moves very slowly and the route is actually pretty short. There are lots of stops but you need to let the driver know when you...More
There is no schedhule. You just go there and wait. The tour is rather short. There is only one stop at Plaka. The ticket is 5€, and 3€ for children over 4 years old. The tour is supposed to be guided but the sound is...More
We took the train with our small kids. I was expecting a bit more ability to see the sites or even more stopping. After reading the other reviews I'm not sure why ours didn't seem to stop more than a few times to let people...More
If SNL ever spoofed a Greek city tour, this would be it. Bored, inarticulate teen providing incomplete, useless & incomprehensible info. Her English accent was very poor. The train hardly stops. No map or guide to get your bearings. We missed the Archeology Museum (our...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.
